"I started training with Coach Kilts in 2015, with no prior powerlifting experience. Since then I have set 16 State Records, 9 National Records, and 1 World Record. I also won silver overall when I went to USPA Drug Tested Nationals in 2019. I had originally trained with Coach Kilts in person while she was in Chicago. I have trained virtually with her since she moved back to LA. I have been just as successful training virtually with her as I was in-person. I placed 1st in my Weight and Age Category and 3rd overall in the Open category at my latest meet in 2020 while qualifying for Worlds and Nationals. I genuinely do not think I would have stuck with this sport if it hadn’t been for Jess and her coaching style. She’s very tough and will push you but it’s because she really cares about you."
