Elite #24 Shannon Hartnett

Updated: Apr 21

Shannon Hartnett One of the greatest pure athletes we've ever had at the gym. Shannon made her way to Diablo after many years as a top highland games competitor, professional female football player and even an alternate for the US Olympic bobsled team. Shannon's stretch at Diablo was only about a year or so, I don't think she ever fully bought into our system. But at age 45 she did accomplish her first 500 squat and deadlift while training with us. Shannon went on to train under coach Rick Hussey at the famous Big Iron Gym where she ended up breaking the all time squat and deadlift records in the 148 lb class.
