The 31-year-old Iya Villania has been doing the CrossFit regimen for six months.


Iya Villania celebrated a win yesterday, October 16, when she beat her personal record for weightlifting.

The 31-year-old TV host-actress successfully did a full snatch of 105 pounds.

Her previous personal record was for a weight of 90 pounds.

According to Kristen Lim, one of Iya’s CrossFit coaches at Avant Garde CrossFit, Iya has been doing CrossFit for six months now.

CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman featuring varied functional movements done at high intensity.

In the video, Primo's mom was seen doing a full snatch, a move adapted from Olympic weighlifting. 

According to CrossFit.com, a snatch requires lifting a barbell from the floor to an overhead position in one quick motion.

But while the move looks easy, it needs a combination of "strength, coordination, explosiveness, mobility and stability that is not seen in any other exercise."

Iya held the pose for about seven seconds, before doing a dance with her gym mates to celebrate her new personal record.

You better not mess with this weightlifting mama!
