Want to lift with the best in the world from all over the world? Well, come on down to Risto High Performance Training Center!!
This week, Luz Mercedes Acosta of Mexico, Jonny Andica of Colombia, and Lesbia Cruz of Guatemala graced us with their presence. For our new lifters, this was an awesome opportunity to see a fantastic display of power and technique.
International phenoms Luz Acosta, Jonny Andica, and Lesbia Cruz lift with Risto Sports
Seeing a woman with 12% bodyfat toy with 90kg snatches is incredibly motivating. Seeing a 77kg lifter snatch double bodyweight for reps was also incredibly motivating. It is an eye opening experience, to see that, yes, lifting huge weights is possible!
Risto Sports proudly welcomes the addition of Tony Blanksteen to our staff — AKA “Tuba Tony”. Tony joins our Team in the office and on the platform. Tony will be persuing his weightlifting dreams while working for Risto Sports.
Tony is a classically trained Tuba player and has a Master’s Degree in Music from UMASS Amherst. Tony’s professional experience aslo includes teaching music at public schools. We really look forward to the professionalism that Tony will add to our customer service team.
More importantly, Tony will be training twice a day under the coaching expertise of Ivan Rojas. Ivan fully anticipates Tony to sky rocket in his results. (Risto sports exists for athletes, when lifting is on the same level as work, our products get better as we understand the athlete’s needs better).
We are happy to help an athlete train fulltime while improving the Risto Sports operations.
FYI: Tony welcomes any classically trained Tuba player to challenge him on his claim as World’s Strongest Tuba player
