Alex Avanto

Alex is a graduate of Western Washington University with her B.S. in Kinesiology and Sport and Exercise Psychology. In addition to her years of training experience, she holds multiple certifications as a personal trainer, sports performance specialist and yoga instructor (200 RYT). She specializes in working with women who want to build strength or climb harder, but struggle with knowing what to do, being consistent, or having anxiety/feeling self-conscious in the gym.

Alex’s philosophy centers around her client’s holistic wellness, progress, and education. She helps her clients set and achieve their fitness, nutrition, and mindset goals by regularly tracking their progress, taking their mental health into account, and teaching them about their individualized training process. This makes her clients feel confident in continuing on their own goals far into the future.

In her free time, Alex enjoys cooking, walking through nature, journaling, playing with her pups, strength training, and of course climbing!

Jacob Horgan

Jacob was born and raised at the foot of the Wasatch mountains where he began exploring the outdoors from the comfort of his parent's backpack before he could walk. Growing up; hiking, skiing, mountain biking, and eventually climbing occupied the majority of his free time.

After high school he attended the University of Utah majoring in kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise science where he found a passion for training himself and others to achieve sport performance and fitness goals. Eventually his love for the outdoors brought him to the pacific northwest where he splits his time working in a physical therapy clinic, personal training, and of course climbing whenever possible.

Lyra Pierotti - Personal Trainer

Lyra’s strength and conditioning coaching builds upon nearly two decades of experience working with clients in the mountains as a guide. In complex mountain sports, she has observed that ‘fitness’ doesn’t necessarily guarantee performance, and performance, in turn, does not necessarily guarantee enjoyment. As a coach, Lyra hopes to help her clients find better flow in their training, and ultimately, more success and fun on their objectives.

Initial sessions with Lyra are 90 minutes for $150, which includes an initial assessment, training, and recommendations for your weekly and monthly training plan. Subsequent sessions are 60 minutes for $110. Please email Lyra directly for scheduling:
