March Athlete of the Month is Coach/Athlete Kirst!
The first few Athlete of the Month posts will be dedicated to getting to know the Siemens Weightlifting coaches… here we go!
I first met Kirst when I started lifting with the club, and was immediately drawn to her positivity and the intensity she attacks every lift with. She is fierce, and people pay attention when she lifts.
She’s also super knowledgeable- she has several coaching certifications under her belt and is a certified nutrition coach.
If you’re new to weightlifting, Kirst is a great athlete to watch. She is persistent, disciplined and has a LOT of fun. She gets that weightlifting is a long game, and pursues it with that in mind.
