Annie arrived at SweattShop in 2019. A Division 1 collegiate volleyball
athlete and fitness enthusiast, she was forced to retire due to pain from injuries. Shane Sweatt developed a specialized training and rehabilitation program to improve her athletic performance, ultimately enabling her to return to volleyball. She continues to build her strength and in 2021 competed as a NMA Figure Competitor finishing top 2.
I have been an athlete at Sweatt Shop for eight years and the experience has changed
my life in ways I couldn’t imagine. I started as a teen who almost had to retire from
beach volleyball because I had so many crippling injuries. I wanted to throw in the towel,
but Shane built me so much physically and psychologically that I truly felt like a
superhuman! The gains were outrageous and within just a year, I was following the pro
tour, getting scouted by tons of colleges, and even broke a junior record in powerlifting
for deadlift! Now I compete in CrossFit for fun, but thanks to Shane I have been able to
avoid life-long pain and many surgeries. I am very grateful I found this amazing gym!
A seasoned lifter, Justin came to Sweatt Shop looking fora new experience, with the goal of getting stronger and leaner. Since working with Shane Sweatt, he has added 150 lbs to his deadlift, gotten significantly leaner, and has been able to rehab his shoulder to allow him to bench press again.
