Sage has been involved in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting since the age of four. Her first competition was at age six and she’s been competing ever since!
She grew up in a garage gym filled with Nationally ranked athletes (including herself) and World team members. Everyone was coached under her dad, Mike Burgener (Coach B), the CEO of the CrossFit Weightlifting Course. Anyone who has been coached by this man, knows his love for Olympic Weightlifting. Sage believes that all of that love for weightlifting was passed down to her in utero.
Sage is a head coach on the CrossFit Weightlifting staff where she leads and certifies trainers to become Olympic lifting coaches through the CrossFit Weightlifting Course.
