Here's more about Diane:

Diane Fu moved to San Francisco, CA in 1998 where her journey in physical culture would begin. Having always had a fascination for all things gym, she knew she wanted to stick close to her passion and be involved in the human movement revolution. From 1999 to 2002, Diane grew roots in the commercial fitness industry as a personal trainer helping people reclaim their health through improved fitness and improved body composition change. From 2002 to 2007, her career took a slight turn and she took on a leadership role in managing various health club brands and helping other personal trainers spread their passion for health and fitness.

In 2007, a new opportunity came along. Diane met the co-founder of San Francisco CrossFit – Dr. Kelly Starrett. She would later join Dr. Starrett and his team at San Francisco CrosSFit in 2008. At around this time, Diane discovered the sport of Olympic-style weightlifting where she delved into weightlifting full time and actively competed from 2009 to 2011. Her passion and dedication for the sport earned her a spot to participate on a national level. Diane now continues her work as a Strength & Conditioning Coach at San Francisco CrossFit and is also the Founder of FuBarbell club -- a concept established in 20011 to create a bridge between the weightlifting world and anyone else interested in getting involved with the iron game.
