Amalia Litras: Owner – CSCS, USAW

After spending two years teaching and coaching in Kansas, Amalia decided to move to a warmer climate. Once in Austin, she spent the first few years outdoors, either riding her bike or running.  Eventually she found her way back into the gym and began strength training.

After becoming a Texan, she ran a marathon, pedaled through a century ride, competed in amateur boxing matches, and lifted in several powerlifting meets before discovering olympic-style weightlifting.  A month before her 40th birthday, she competed in the 2011 National Weightlifting Championships, finishing in seventh place.  In 2013, at the age of 42, she competed in the American Open Weightlifting Championships.

Pattie Farley: Owner – CSCS, USAW

While earning a bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech, Pattie fell in love with endurance training and began competing in 5Ks. Once she graduated and moved to Austin, she decided to try her hand at longer distances, running a half-marathon before deciding to ride in the 1998 Tanqueray AIDS Ride (Austin-to-Houston-to-Dallas/575-miles).

Shortly thereafter she suffered a shoulder injury and decided to focus most of her energy on strength training.  Since that time, in addition to two marathons and countless century rides, she has competed in several powerlifting meets and bodybuilding shows.

She wove together experiential and linear learning to design an IBA in Applied Somatic Arts at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. Her third decade is an embodied exploration of how structural issues, pain, and injury patterns occur when the nervous system creates physical adaptations to stressors.

Mark McFarland, Powerlifting Coach

Mark McFarland

Mark played handball and squash for years before a knee injury took him off the court. His doctor told him given his age and type of injury, handball was out of the question. He also said Mark would probably never squat again. Mark decided to slowly work at increasing his lower body strength; he ended up falling in love with barbell training and has been squatting, deadlifting, and bench pressing extremely heavy weights ever since!
