Amanda Barnhart Crossfit Athlete

Amanda Barnhart white shortsAmanada Barnhart has been in Crossfit for a few years now. I see competitive results for her going back to 2014.

Her profiles list her as 5’7″ tall and 151 lbs. She is currently 26 years old. She works as a physical therapist.

She has around 21k followers on her Instagram account these days:

Amanda has been athletic all her life. As a child, she practiced gymnastics. In high school, she swam, played volleyball, and ran track. When she went to college, she swam for a D1 school.

squat 315 lb
clean and jerk 230 lb
deadlift 390 lb
snatch 195 lb

Unfortunately, with Crossfit, it really is “mimimize”. It’s a sport notorious for injuries. It’s less a question of if you’re going to get injured, and more about when. I guess you can say that for any top-level sport and athlete.

Amanda was married a couple of years ago to Wesley Barnhart. I think they both currently live in the Ohio area.
