Athlete of the Month: Morgan Wagner

Coach's Remarks:

I have worked with Morgan for about 9 months now. In this short time, she has developed into a really solid youth weightlifter. She has amazing intensity, drive and is never scared to go after heavy weights. There are two kinds of people I coach, those who need to be told to lift heavier and those who need to be told to lift lighter and work technique. Morgan never needs to be told to lift heavier, that is for sure!The one thing that always impresses me about Morgan beside her tenacity to attack heavy weights is her memorization of all her current PRs across all exercises and rep ranges. Before coming to the gym she always knows the daily workout and what weights would be PRs for that days lifting. At twelve years old this is truly a mark of a future champion.
