Dr. Kelly Barron, a chiropractor at Method Health Center, set five South Carolina State weightlifting records recently. Competing at the 2016 Palmetto Powerlifting Classic, Dr. Kelly set records in the squat, deadlift and bench press, along with others. This was especially surprising considering it was her first weightlifting competition!
Dr. Kelly spends most of her time making sure her patients can move better, live pain-free and become healthier and stronger, but she also practices what she preaches. She credits her years of training, a clean diet and chiropractic care with her winning lifts. She trains at AE Fit in Mt. Pleasant and Crossfit Discovery on Daniel Island. The coaches help her with the technical aspects of her weightlifting and the members keep her motivated.
While this was her first weightlifting competition, Dr. Kelly is no stranger to athletic competitions. She was a competitor on American Ninja Warrior and has been a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter.
