“Welcome to Mike’s Gym
Where legends come to be born
Where Geezers become young
Where the spirit of Father Lange Lives Forever! “
These words found on the wall of coach Mike Burgener’s garage gym might not have any meaning to you quite yet.
This weeks show is simply put, a tribute, that is dedicated to one of the most impactful coaches we have ever had in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting & CrossFit.
As one of Chris Moore’s latest projects, this was actually the first Full Depth episode that was filmed.
Things would not be where they are today if not for the love and passion of teaching from Coach Burgener. If you have aspirations to become the greatest coach you possibly can, sit and take note. You’ll learn some of the most valuable lessons from a man who’s dedicated his life to helping others achieve their form of greatness.
If you learned how to snatch or clean & jerk in the past 8 years, there is a very high chance that it was influenced by Coach B. Coach B brought a love and passion for weightlifting to the masses. He helped bridge the gap between the exploding sport of CrossFit® & brought new life to American Weightlifting.
In favor to and appreciation of our dear friend Chris Moore, please share this story to those you know will appreciate the hard work and craft that has been put into this show. This truly is something special to all of us. It was such a treat to see and hear Chris back on the camera for a bit.
I hope you enjoy!
