Jamie is a CFLV1 Trainer, Special Forces Medic, Rugby player, Former United States Ski Association Ski Racer and general fitness and wellness aficionado. After years of competitive ski racing, high school football and high school/college Lacrosse at the University of Colorado at Boulder he joined the army and became a SF Medical Sergeant. During his time in training at Ft. Bragg, NC, he discovered what was then a brand new way to excel in fitness, Crossfit. It was also during this time that Jamie found "The Gentleman's Game" of Rugby, a passion he continues today both as a player and a youth coach with the Tacoma Nomads Rugby Football Club.
Jamie firmly believes that fitness is the foundation to a stronger, better and more fulfilling life. He finds deep pleasure in helping people "level up," watching not only their physicality improve but also emotional and mental well-being as well. Having travelled to over 20 countries, he observes "I have met successful people that are not physically fit but I have yet to meet, on any continent, a physically fit person who isn't also successful outside the gym."
When Jamie is not serving in the National Guard, playing rugby or heading to the wilderness he enjoys spending time with his wife Deanna. She is a fellow veteran, fitness enthusiast and their son Brody; who can usually be found climbing to some precarious height in the gym, requiring his parents to engage in hostage negotiation techniques to get him back down.

Mattheos is an Infantry Officer in the US Army, former Collegiate Wrestler at Virginia Tech University and an avid Crossfit Enthusiast! Mattheos has been coached from the best; ranging from top renowned Strength and Conditioning Coaches to Olympic & World Champion Wrestlers. He continues to train at the highest level and always seeks guidance from his peers on ways to get better.
Everything about coaching lights a spark in him. He thrives on watching people improve themselves, and is inspired by the amount of hard work he sees around the gym day in and day out. The connections made daily, the smiles in the gym, the hard work and looks of “I can do this”, the triumphs, and even to an extent the failures; every one of those are things that he cannot get enough of.
He's all about people trying new things and getting out of their comfort zone. Seeing the changes that people make after coming to the gym and intentionally improving their life and lifestyle is nothing short of amazing. Being able to be a part of that change is something Mattheos will always be grateful for. Coaching is a passion of his – plain and simply.
"To my athletes – thank you for letting me be your coach."
