Jordan Pettyjohn is a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach and Athletics Fitness Association of America Certified Group Fitness Instructor. He is currently studying sports performance, corrective exercise, and behavior change.
Growing up as an athlete, Jordan naturally fell in love with fitness at a young age. A complicated leg fracture in 2009, health complications in 2011, and transitioning to a plant-based/gluten-free diet in 2016 exposed him to the challenges of physical and mental rehabilitation and the unique challenges we face trying to navigate the hardships of life while starting or continuing healthy exercise and diet regimens. This ultimately led him to study nutrition along with fitness.
Knowing that fitness and nutrition are inseparable, and have numerous benefits for physical and mental health, he began his professional journey helping others of all ages. From youth athletes to seniors, he helps people with all goal types navigate the process to reach their own goals. With 10+ years of experience in fitness and 5+ years in studying nutrition, Jordan strives to help others reap the physical and mental health benefits of regular exercise and healthy nutrition practices.
He specializes in guiding clients through mindful and personalized stability, mobility, endurance, strength, and power programs. This is accompanied by nutritional guidance to help achieve functionality and ultimately a high quality of life through safe and effective programming.
Chloe Pape is a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer. She has been in the world of dance and fitness for 9 years. As a former competitive dancer, she quickly fell in love with the health and wellness industry. Once the days on stage came to an end, she quit exercising altogether and couldn’t seem to keep up with a fitness routine. It left her in a dark place with not much self-confidence for quite some time. A few months later she knew it was necessary to pick up a new hobby and get active again. Inexperienced with zero knowledge, she decided to sign up for membership at a commercial gym. In 2021 she started her own lifting journey and not long after became a certified PT to channel this growing passion.
She now specializes in strength training, coaching clients both individually and in group settings. At this point in her career, she has helped clientele of all ages and experience with weight loss, muscle growth, mental blocks, nutrition, and more. Not only does she build programs and meal plans but also works to build a safe space where failure and growth are equally encouraged.
When Chloe is not working, she is still dedicated to her own personal weightlifting progression, hiking in Sedona, doing something crafty, or keeping up with spiritual practices. As a coach, she prides herself on being a mentor for the mind, body, and soul overall. Her mission is not only to inspire but be hands-on in helping others create their personal version of a healthier body and life.
