Celia started out as a swimmer. Her older sister got her into that sport at the age of 6, and Celia was competing heavily be the time she was 13. She says she was always active, and loved competing.

As she grew up and began searching for a career, Celia tried her hand at being a lifeguard as well as doing hair and makeup. In order to get back and forth to her job, around the time she was 19 years old, she began taking driving instruction. Her instructor was the son of a long-time Crossfit trainer, and told her all about the sport, encouraging her to give it a try.

In her early 20’s, Celia began applying herself to her new favorite sport, and began to see her potential.

Her first few Crossfit competitions didn’t go as well as planned. Celia was quite fit, but not very strong. So she started placing a lot of focus on weightlifting and getting stronger.

Competition History

Celia was ranked 8th in France and 386th in the world as recently as 2020.
