Salt Lake City native Darcie Warren is not your usual fitness buff. Doing 189-lbs clean and jerk routines is almost an effortless task for this darling. Competing and winning in fitness events also seem natural.

“My coaches say what has brought me as far as I have come is my mental game, which a lot of people lack,” Warren said. “They don’t want to take themselves to that dark place.
