Coach Morgan started her coaching career as a personal trainer and transitioned into Strength and Conditioning Coach when taking on an internship as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach for The University of The District of Columbia (UDC) while completing her Masters Degree in Exercise Science - Strength and Conditioning at George Washington University. Her passion for coaching has grown stronger over the years and even more so when she finally found the sport she loved the most, Powerlifting.


Coaching to her is more than just a job, it brings her pure joy. She is continuously inspired by her athletes every day and the hard work they put in.

"BTB is more than just a coaching service to me. It is a home for all of our lifters to learn, excel, and find community. I couldn't be more proud of the community we've become and wouldn't trade it for the world! Thank you to each of my athletes current and past for making me the coach I am today!". - Coach Morgan
