- USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Coach
Fatimeh was not born an athlete. Her first weightlifting coach told her that she moved like a deer on ice skates. Prior to that, Fatimeh evaded countless gym classes with feigned cramps and a headache. It wasn’t until recently that she began to identify as a mover.
Movement, and strength training in particular, is now an integral part of Fatimeh’s life. It has come to redefine how she relates to her mind, body, and spirit. Fatimeh is a better person for the triumphs and teachings she’s encountered as an athlete. As a coach, Fatimeh aims to be a steady source of accountability and love for the Hardware community.
Outside of the gym, Fatimeh is a workplace democracy and cooperatives practitioner. She spends a great deal of time thinking about the future of work and how to use legal tools to support human-centered practices in the workplace. Fatimeh loves art and plants. She is grateful life partner to Keaton and mama to Boogie the pit bull.
