Ciara Van Ness

Coach

As a lifelong athlete, I have a passion for coaching and helping others reach their highest potential. Running has always been a passion of mine but eventually, I wanted to try something new. This is when I finally began my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey. It has allowed me the opportunities to not only learn self-defense but has also filled my training with purpose. It has taught me valuable life lessons, renewed my self-confidence, and inspired me to help others who have self-doubts about their own physical and mental strength. I am currently a purple belt under Professor Matt Jubera and Sensei Xande Ribeiro representing Six Blades BJJ. I have every intention of eventually earning a black belt. I have won major tournaments and even graced the podium at a world level. Allow me to teach you how to face your fears head-on and show you how powerful you truly are. I believe everyone has the potential to reach any fitness goal. My goal is to help others become the best version of themselves.

Zac Lokay

Coach

Zac has spent his whole life playing soccer, even playing at a DIII level at the University of Puget Sound and going as far as Sweden to play semi-professionally. While at school, Zac majored in Exercise Science with a Neuroscience Emphasis. Zac has worked with a wide range of athletes of various ages and skill levels, doing sports performance for athletes of all ages from 11 to college aged. He has also helped lead group classes for people of all different experience levels.

After experimenting and coaching so many different fitness routines over the years, Karen witnessed numerous overuse injuries from bad movement pattern and no real plan on how to achieve your goals. Her frustration with unsustainable results in the fitness industry grew into a deep passion to help people not only get fit, but stay fit for life.

At 40, Karen is stronger, fitter, and more confident than ever. She attributes this to eating clean, meal prepping and following a sustainably smart, simple and safe strength and conditioning program consisting of squats, deadlifts, pushes, pulls, gymnastics and proper mobility work.
