Brittany Diamond “BDimez” began her strong(wo)man career in August 2013, the summer of her junior year of college, when she came across a local show that had a women’s novice class. After graduating and finishing her DI rowing career at URI in May 2014 she began training for what she called the “road to strong(wo)man”. Since then, she has won numerous state titles and competed both at the national and world level. Most recently she placed 6th at the 2016 Arnold World Championship, 1stat the Kumite Classic and 6th at NAS Nationals after some injuries. In 2017 she won her pro card by finishing 2nd at the Arnold Amateur World Championships.
Aside from competing, Brittany loves coaching and programming for people who are looking to improve overall strength, competition prep and have a better understand of their body and what works for them.
Her approach to training revolves around staying healthy—physically and mentally. Strength programs can be hard on the body so she always includes recovery and mobility as part of the program. She programs her tips and tricks for how to compete better than your opponents and requires video of your lifts and regular check ins.
“Getting programming from Brittany was the best decision I have made so far in my lifting career. She is very knowledgeable and super sweet. She is always willing to answer additional questions outside of our check ins. I am very impressed with not only her programs but also the results I’ve seen using her as my coach. Using her program, I won my first strongman competition! If you are considering any strength sports, training for a competition, or just want to get stronger, her programming is definitely worth checking into! I highly recommend it!”- Katie St. Clair 1st place finisher MWW Intense Strongman Comp Jan 2016
“Brittany just recently helped me get on track with a program to help me prepare for my first lifting competition in the spring. Over the course of the past 8 weeks she has helped me with her detailed programming and critiqued my form to address weaknesses. She is a great trainer and I feel as though my strength and physical abilities have improved a lot thanks to her help.” -Sara Francis novice powerlifter at Merrimack College
“Brittany–One of the strongest women I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know and call a friend. I remember watching her on her very first competition. It was because of her that I fell in love with the strongman. It was like watching a strong Barbie killing it on her first comp, and I said to myself, “I want to be strong just like her!”. The strength, the drive. I was in awe!She was my go to girl for questions and tips for when I was training for my very first competition. She provided good tips on the farmers hold, a better way to pick up a sandbag , and my arch enemy, the keg! I can’t thank her enough for being such a great support. I know who I will be going to for any questions and tips. I like to call myself her #1 fan!”
