Champion Living Fitness Coach 

CLFHey! I’m Libby Winchell, an Assistant Coach here at Champion Living Fitness. After graduating from Scottsbluff High School in 2017, I attended Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, Wyoming and completed an Associates in Science with a concentration in Pre-Allied Health. Then I attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas where I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise and Allied Health in 2021. Recently, I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Exercise Science in 2023.I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge through my education but also hands-on experiences. I have worked at a physical therapy clinic where I gained hands on experience of rehabilitation of all walks of life, from sports injuries to post surgery rehabilitation and everything in between. While being a student athlete for the Tarleton Rodeo Team, I had the privilege to be a graduate assistant. I helped coach a regional champion women’s team by assisting with strength and conditioning programs and running individualized event specific practices. Like many of us, rodeo has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. From a young age, I have competed in goat tying, breakaway roping, and barrel racing, and have continued through high school, college and now professionally. My love of fitness and the human body began when I sustained a knee injury my senior year of high school. And then long story short, I have had two more major knee surgeries. Throughout my rehabilitation process, I realized how amazing our bodies are and how we can train them to perform at an elite level. It is no secret that the rodeo world is becoming bigger and tougher than ever before. In order to win in the arena, work must be done outside the arena to prepare through fitness and nutrition. I am so excited to be a part of the Champion Living Fitness team!! I love that Champion Living Fitness understands rodeo athletes. I understand that everyone may not have access to a full gym but that’s okay. There are so many things that can be done to train the body to win at home and on the road! With my love and understanding of rodeo and knowledge in nutrition, rehabilitation, and strength and conditioning I plan to coach everyone to become the best versions of themselves.
