When she was named the, Most important player in a team She was never crowned the winner—until now. Yet that grand prize was never her motivation…
“Each time I finished a challenge, the journey itself gave me satisfaction,” Redwine-Landfried says. “So to say that I won is just icing on the cake.”
Fitness has always been part of Redwine-Landfried’s life in Lubbock, Texas. She was an active teenager and competed on high school track, basketball and volleyball teams. Her athleticism caught the eyes of others;during her freshman year, a coach for the Colorado High School’s powerlifting team recruited her to be a member of their first all-women’s team.
“It was really fun, and I saw my cross-training capabilities,” Redwine-Lansfried says. “It was a big deal, because in Texas, girl’s powerlifting was sort of far out there. It opened up my eyes that women could be strong, too.”
After becoming a mother, years later, it was even harder to stay healthy and fit.
