Jarod Cogswell is an Alpha Warrior Pro Coach, veteran fitness professional, certified performance enhancement coach and mountain athlete. His passion for high energy fitness began when training for high school sports, which later evolved into collegiate football. Soon after college, he professionally continued his mission “to help enhance and transform lives physically, mentally and emotionally.” To this day, his training focuses on mindset as much as strength and conditioning.
While living in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Jarod began backcountry snowboarding, which evolved into a passion in climbing many of North America’s classic peaks and routes. As a mountain search and rescue team member, he has been honored and awarded for his commitment to helping others in need. He has reached the summit of Mount Hood by various climbing routes nearly 100 times. Cogswell points to fitness and “interesting climbing experiences” as his main reasons for maintaining focus, a positive mindset, and having fun in a sometimes-hostile mountain environment.
Professionally, Jarod has owned a gym and is a fitness industry leader who serves as a presenter, business mentor, coach, and team builder. As a fitness pro, Jarod feels it’s his purpose to educate, motivate, and inspire those he leads. He resides in Portland, Oregon.
