Caleb Williams (Head coach)
I have been and am currently an active competitor and coach in strength sports since 1995. I developed a passion for this at a young age and never let off the gas! In 2002 I decided to help several athletes with their Sports Performance Training and they had incredible transformations! I decided to pick up and move to Duluth, GA and founded Peak Performance Weightlifting where we specialize in Sports Performance Training for tons of serious local athletes!
We are now expanding our knowledge, reach and impact to include Crossfit Gwinnett so that we have the opportunity to continue to grow our fitness family and help you reach your health and fitness goals! Nothing is more rewarding than seeing someone’s life changed and being blessed to have a part in the transformation!
My competitive career began in Powerlifting (Squat, Bench, Deadlift) in 1995. As a drug-free lifter in 12 years I accomplished:
- 2 Time IPF World Champion (67.5 kg/148 lb Class)
- 2 Time IPF World Silver Medalist

- Hold 17 American Records

In 2006 I left Powerlifting to pursue a lifelong goal….to compete in the Olympic Games. I began training for and competing in Olympic Weightlifting and fell in love all over again. The lifts provided a new challenge and a new opportunity to help others succeed as well. I also met my lovely wife through Weightlifting!! Competing in the 69 kg (152 lb class) I have attained:
- Senior National Champion
- Senior National Silver Medalist

My name is Adam Reese, I am 23 years old from Duluth, Ga. I began performing lifts such as the clean, squat, and bench at the age of 8 under the supervision of my father, Coach Kenny Reese, a 30+ year wrestling and football coach in the metro-Atlanta area at the High School level. At the age of 17, I began training with Caleb Williams out of Quest Gym in Duluth, and at the age of 19, I began competing. Since then, I have achieved prestigious accomplishments in both competitive powerlifting and competitive weightlifting, on top of having a chance to work with some of the biggest names in both sports. In 2008, I came on as a trainer for Peak Performance Weightlifting and have been here ever since. Outside of Crossfit Gwinnett and PPW my other passion is music and I also am a Drum teacher at 3 Angels Music and Arts in Suwanee, Ga.
