Our metabolic conditioning and multimodal sport training involves the necessary components needed to become a better athlete in the sport of fitness.  

Customized programming, weak point analysis/improvement, and new progressions for new movements will be accessible to you with the highest quality coaching expected from our coaches. 

Through weightlifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning we assess each skill and build a program based on individual needs. The program is for athletes of all abilities. 

Each one of our coaches will address the following: 

  • Weightlifting: Focus will be on building strength and technique of the clean and jerk, snatch and all other related lifts. Focus will also be placed on barbell cycling of the movements during workouts and under fatigue. Coaches will utilize video analysis for technique and progressions. 
  • Gymnastics: Progressions from basic body positioning and awareness to advanced gymnastics movements. Coaches will watch and evaluate videos on specific gymnastics/skill movements in order to create appropriate progressions. 
  • Metabolic Conditioning: Workouts will combine multiple energy systems, movements, time domains, and rep schemes to enhance an athlete's sport performance.

A former Division 1 (UConn) and semi professional (QS Lady Blues) soccer player, she has spent years coaching dozens of athletes to prepare them for their collegiate athletic careers, both as a team head coach and individual trainer.

She has finished 11th overall in the world with the Spartan Race in 2014, 17th overall in 2013, has 10 first place finishes and has made the podium in over 95% her races. This year has marked steady improvements in all her capabilities, and with a near triple bodyweight deadlift and sub 6 minute mile time (5:42), she is well positioned to make a mark in several new athletic endeavors this year.

Jordan has a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and has been working in ICU since graduating in 2015. She has a passion for learning and challenging herself not only physically but intellectually as well. She has her Crossfit Level 1 Certification and has continued to attend seminars for training and nutrition. She has a passion for helping others and wants to become more involved in the fitness community.

Jordan grew up playing soccer and running track but later shifted her focus on competitive cheerleading, which she continued through college. She has always been extremely competitive and driven and when competitive cheerleading was no longer there she needed something to fill that void. After a year of working out in globo type gyms she came across the Crossfit Games on TV and knew she wanted to be there one day. A year after starting Crossfit she started competing and shortly thereafter she started coaching.
In the winter of 2014 she briefly did a powerlifting cycle and competed in an RPS meet where she came in first, totaled elite, set a world record squat in her weight class, and qualified for the XPC Finals at the Arnold Sports Festival. The following year she turned down the opportunity to compete at the Arnold to help her team at Crossfit Wilmington qualify for the Crossfit Games. Her team qualified and she participated in the 2015 Crossfit Games in Carson, California. In 2016 she qualified as an individual for the Crossfit Atlantic Regionals. Since regionals she has started a new job and is training for the 2017 season.

Sarah Pierce has coached CrossFit for eight years and currently owns two Strength & Condition Gyms for the past seven years. With a double Bachelors Degree in Biochemistry and Physiology from Sonoma State University, Sarah has coached high school volleyball for three years, gymnastics for five years and has programmed both nutrition as well as strength and conditioning for seven years.

Sarah is a Level 1 and Level 2 CrossFit, Nutrition, NASM, and USAW certified. As a Regional CrossFit competitor from the NorCal Region, Sarah has also consistently finished within the top 30 in both the Open and Regionals each year.

Along with her coaching accolades, Sarah is a competitive Olympic weightlifter who has achieved an 89kg snatch and 113kg clean and jerk. She started her CrossFit career with CrossFit CSA in 2015. Later that year, she placed 8th at the California Regionals.
