Becca Antcliff is a CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting coach at CrossFit Texas Tech. She is currently a freshman at Texas Tech and is studying Petroleum Engineering. She was a competitive Junior Olympic springboard diver and after no longer being able to pursue this dream, she found the passion and excitement for CrossFit and immediately fell in love.  CrossFit represents who she is in every way. Outside of school, she enjoys hanging out with her family, church family, and you guessed it, doing CrossFit!!! Becca enjoys pushing herself as hard as she can; she is continually striving to become the best athlete she can be.  She believes “there is no limit to what is accomplishable, you can always become better.”  Becca has trained under well-known Olympic lifting coach, national champion, and world team member, Ursula Garza Papandrea and has gained a lot of wisdom from her.  She is very excited to be a part of CrossFit Texas Tech and to help others reach their goals. 

Josh Josh
Josh was in the Marine Corps for six years and was part of Ft. Sam Houston Boxing. He was also briefly on a Semi Pro football team and have been a volunteer firefighter. He first discovered CrossFit while deployed to Afghanistan. CrossFit allowed him to keep in shape in the small amount of free time he had. One great thing about Crossfit is that it allows people to always improve themselves no matter where they are in life. That's why he loves being a CrossFit coach at CrossFit Texas Tech and helping his fellow Red Raiders realize their own potential.
   
Seth Seth
Seth began powerlifting in 2008. He powerlifted for four years, training primarily on squat, bench press, and deadlift movements. In the Spring of 2011 he discovered CrossFit. What appealed to him most about CrossFit is the incorporation of Olympic lifts into fast paced, high intensity quick workouts. He quickly became aware of the diversity and versatility of CrossFit, which inspired him to become a CrossFit Texas Tech coach. He is majoring in Exercise Science/Pre-PT.
   

Olympic Weightlifing Coaches

Dominic Dominic
My name is Dominic, and I coach Olympic weightlifting. I first discovered weightlifting when I began CrossFit back in 2012. After a few months of CrossFit, I began training several times a week with a weightlifting team, working only the olympic lifts. Soon after that, I participated in my first competition, and I did very well. From that point on, I trained solely for Olympic weightlifting, and have been doing do for about a year and a half. I'm currently majoring in Chemical Engineering at Tech, and am considering going to med school after graduation. I like doing pretty much anything active or outside, and I'm also currently a part of the Texas Tech Climbing Club.
