This week we interview Kaitlin Burgess, a Pro Strongwoman in the middleweight & heavyweight division Kaitlin will be competing this weekend at the first ever Arnold Pro Strongwoman contest and we talk all about what that means for Strongwoman, how she feels to be a part of it, her competition, whats next and how she got started in the sport.
