Sam Smith - Strength Coach
Sam is a powerlifting, weightlifting and CrossFit coach at United Barbell, joining in 2017 from another gym in San Francisco.
A Chicago native, Sam discovered CrossFit while living in Washington D.C. for law school. His love affair with CrossFit happened quickly and he went from 1-2 classes a week to daily classes to competition programming. Sam has competed at dozens of local competitions and coached at gyms in DC and the Bay Area. He loves working with new athletes to unlock their potential!
Outside of the gym, Sam works in technology consulting. He's known to spend an entire Sunday watching football or playing golf, and still doesn't completely understand microclimates.
