For Klarissa a passion for health and fitness was always present, although it was with crutches under her armpits and a boot on her left foot, that she discovered this passion would become her career. As a stubborn injury put a hold on her collegiate athletic career, Klarissa was offered an internship with a sports performance center, where she learned the art of training for performance without compromising the body’s durability. The knowledge she gained inspired her to become a personal trainer helping others maximize their potential in sport, activity and quality of life. In 2014 she became a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) as well works as an assistant coach with Pacific Lutheran Universities Track & Field team. She has extensive experience with athletes of all levels, specifically in speed, agility and power training.

Wednesday Night Trifecta

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014


Cycling – like climbing but not as vertical and a little faster. Jayson got so excited about his new helmet that we’ve decided to host a free ride for our members* around the North End of T-Town on Wednesday nights. It’s not really a climbing event, but more of an opportunity to get together, meet other members, and spend some time outside the gym.

*All members, future members, potential members, friends, family and people with bicycles are invited; the more the merrier – but expect to hear about our Corporate Specials if you are not already involved.

We’ll leave from the gym parking lot at 7pm and head out for a ride around the North End. Then, after about an hour of riding, we’ll stop at the HUB for 10% OFF dinner ; heading back to the gym around 9:30pm via North 11th.

Don’t forget to bring a helmet, bike lights, bike lock, money and ID!  We look forward to seeing you there.
