Kristen Trombetta

Growing up, I was introduced at an early age to the benefits and joy of leading an active and healthy lifestyle. That joy led me to playing many sports and earning a college scholarship for volleyball. Post college, I was fortunate to play volleyball overseas and discover more deeply my passion to help others with their health and fitness lifestyle.
My passion is to truly help you be the best that you can be in all aspects of life; mentally, physically, spiritually. I believe that with proper guidance, discipline, and a positive attitude, that YOU can succeed. I aim to show you this and help you reach your goals.

Today, I am fortunate to work full-time as a Fitness Lifestyle Coach. My programs include a 16-Week Body Transformation Program, Group Training, Bootcamp Class, Individual Nutrition and Exercise Programming, and Foundations to Fitness Youth Class. I would love to help you on your journey.

Why not YOU? Why not NOW?



My name is Sharon Trombetta, a.k.a. Derek’s mom. I am fortunate to have been born in this beautiful state of Colorado and into a family with a great appreciation for being active and embracing all the great outdoors has to offer. My passion for health and fitness along with my physical therapy background allows me to assist people on their journey to a healthier life!

I enjoy an active lifestyle with an exuberance for hiking, running, yoga, snowshoeing, strength training, horseback riding, swimming, obstacle course races, and anything that involves being outdoors. I am always up for trying new activities, my determination and curiosity has me never turning down a challenge, or an opportunity for a new experience. Time and time again, I’m reminded of the positive effects exercise has on my own physical and psychological well-being, and my appreciation for what our bodies and minds can achieve. I want to share my enthusiasm, and encourage a happier and healthier lifestyle to everyone I encounter. I believe with the right training program, being surrounded by the right people, being surrounded by a caring, fun, encouraging and dynamic environment, along with a bit of determination and support you can and will achieve your goals!

I am grateful to be a part of 970Muscle from the very beginning. Life is an adventure filled with continual improvement.

Alecia Gordon

I’ve led an active lifestyle and have been very passionate about health and wellness my entire life. I began to learn about nutrition at an early age and encouraged my parents to eat healthier. When I was a kid, I used to ask my mom to buy me spinach :) I continue to read and study and learn more about nutrition and exercise each day. It is fascinating to me!

I am very fortunate to be able to work in the Health and Wellness Industry and to train my clients at a very special place called 970Muscle! What I absolutely love about our Facility is that everyone feels welcome… All ages and all fitness levels!! I am committed to helping my clients become healthier and to reach their fitness goals! I love to show people that age is just a number and that you can feel great and can be in the best shape of your life at any age! I am especially fond of seniors! We are all going to get older, but we do not have to become frail or sick. We can stay active, feel great and enjoy life well into our senior years!

My programs include 16-Week Transformations, Private Individual Training Sessions, Small Group Training Sessions and flexibility to modify and customize to your needs. Please contact me for a great experience!


Matt Hancock

My father introduced me to the weight room at 11 years old and I haven’t let a barbell go since! Being obsessed and captivated by strength and being yoked at a young age I took an interest in Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, Strongman and just general Hard and Heavy Training. This has led me to compete in Highland Games and Powerlifting. No rest for the wicked, I set my sights on furthering my strength and physique goals by competing in more Powerlifting Meets, Strongman and Bodybuilding.

The body cannot reach its full potential if the mind is not mastered. Willpower and Discipline are stronger than any muscle! Heavy Duty Strength is more than just moving massive weight. More than setting 1-rep maxes or toiling in the gym for hours on end increasing numbers. Become a stronger, more satisfied you; demolish preconceived notions and become boundless! Whatever strength is in you, we'll find it together, through discipline, hard work and true grit. Become a believer in yourself!

I am a Full-Time Strength Coach. Programming includes 12-Week Body Recomposition, Group Training, Athlete Development, and Individual Nutrition and Weight Training Programs.

Deep down YOU are stronger than all!!!


J.J. Johnson

Full of energy, genuine person with a contagious positive attitude. I love the mindset, lifestyle and nutrition side of fitness and helping people fall in love with making it a lifestyle. With a Bachelors in Kinesiology with a specialty in the physical therapy and rehabilitation of injuries, I attended Colorado Mesa University. I’ve been personal training for five years and absolutely love my job. I can literally modify anything you need. Archery and the outdoors is another passion of mine whether its fishing, snowshoeing, hiking you name it. I would love to introduce you to an active lifestyle and bringing out the best version of you. Whether you are brand new to the working out, in a rut or needing a new perspective on things. I cant wait to help you achieve your goals!!!

“Jasmine Johnson ‪is a great trainer. She prepared me for the podium in the Super Masters Division at Train To Hunt Nationals Colorado 2016. The last two years she has gotten me physically & mentally ready to take on the Himalayas in 2017. She took my training to a higher level. I never thought I could do the things I could do when I trained with her.”

Chance Sidebottom

Physical activity has been a part of my life for as long as I could remember. I practically grew up in cleats playing every sport you could imagine. For me sports were about more than physical activity. Growing up being a part of team and leading people to be the best version of themselves was always my true calling. From the first time, I laced up my cleats to the last time I competed in an athletic event I was always the captain or a co-captain. Once graduating high school, the next adventure of my life was all about how I could use my skills to better the lives of others. I received my Certified Nursing Assistant certificate, started working at General Nutrition Center and began helping people truly live life to their fullest.
For me, it’s more than just how a workout or a supplement can temporarily help someone. It’s about digging down to the root cause of a person’s needs. After nearly six years with GNC, I was approached with opportunity of a lifetime. As a member of 970Muscle it is our mission and has always been mine to help others live and love life. By leading others down the path of being their best, it has lead me down my own path of being my best. I continue to grow, learn, and everyday develop a deeper passion for truly understanding and making a difference in people’s lives. Not to mention, I am doing all this while obtaining my undergraduate degree in Certified Public Accounting through Colorado Mesa University. It doesn’t stop their either, at the end of 2016 I received my Personal Training Certificate through International Sports Science Association. I will continue to pursue knowledge and personal growth until the day I can no longer pass it onto the lives of others. At twenty-three years young, this is just the beginning of my journey.

Brandy Elliss

I grew up in Colorado and found as a child I loved activities that helped me to stay active, fit, strong, and healthy. Hiking, hunting, fishing and roaming the mountains of Southwest Colorado were a normal part of my young life. I also played a multitude of sports through high school and continued staying active and competitive in college through intramural sports and fitness training. I have continued this active lifestyle ever since, including competing in bodybuilding competitions, powerlifting meets, and many obstacle races. I am a very competitive and driven individual who likes to push myself and others.
I obtained by BA in Psychology Counseling and my Juris Doctorate in Law. I then spent 12 years in the practice of law in Colorado. However, I decided to pursue something that I was truly passionate about and became a Fitness Coach. I am so thrilled to be able to help others on their own fitness journey, assisting and encouraging them to see all that they are capable of accomplishing—both physically and nutritionally. I love Jesus and believe that we can do ALL THINGS through Christ!
I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have been given to work out of 970Muslce, there is not better facility or members anywhere! My programs include 16 Week Transformation, Individual Training, Group Training, and Youth Strength and Conditioning. Let me help you on your fitness journey to becoming a stronger, healthier, more confident YOU!

Kathi Schnake

ACTIVE... That's the life I've been living for as long as I can remember. Growing up in the day when riding my bike, walking, or running to where I needed to go was just routine. Swimming, golf, indoor & outdoor activities with family & friends, casual group games of kickball, baseball, hopscotch or just good old run around the neighborhood helped shape the desire to live a healthy, active life. Organized sports were for the boys, so synchronized swimming was my sport in high school. Over the years, I've kept an active life and become more interested in getting to the gym to stay in shape, thanks to an encouraging push from my son & daughter, who are both Fitness Coaches.
HEALTH/NUTRITION... I've been on this journey for 30+ years. I started taking healthy food supplements when there were very few choices on the market. I've learned a lot over the years about the value of reading supplement and food labels and also enjoy reading books and articles on health & nutrition. A healthy diet is something I've worked on over the years, trying to keep our 3 kids on a healthy track as they grew up. Following a healthy nutrition plan continues to be part of my daily routine. I love that I can continue to study and learn about a field that is changing everyday!
RELATIONSHIPS...this is my passion and what I believe I was created for... #1 a relationship with God and out of this a relationship with others.

Being a part of the 970Muscle Team, gives me an opportunity to reach out to those around me, helping them as well as letting them help me!



All through high school, I was part of a competitive dance team and then afterwards a semi pro dance team. I also coached several dance teams after graduation, which I absolutely loved! Dance has always been a huge part of my life and my favorite way to stay active, but after high school and college there isn't much competitive dance locally. However, dance will always be a huge part of who I am and something I love to do.

I was first truly introduced to health and fitness in 2010 when my husband, Nick, and I joined one of Derek's group workouts. After the workout, Team 970Muscle had posing practice in preparation for the NPC Northern Fitness Competition and we decided to stay and watch. I instantly felt the need to do a fitness show, so Nick and I started prep for the 2010 Warrior Classic where I competed in the bikini class. The dedication it took surprised me, but it was worth it! I then competed in three more shows over the course of two years, beginning my health and fitness journey, and love for the gym. I became addicted to the challenge to be better each day and along the way had friends and family even join me to learn workouts and began asking advice regarding their journeys to healthier lifestyles. My love for helping others discover an active and healthy life began!

Now, 2017, we have a three-year-old son and I want to be the best role model I possibly can, trying to show him how fun and rewarding it is to be active and take care of ourselves. So, when I was asked to join 970Muscle as a Fitness Coach, I was both ecstatic and incredibly honored! The opportunity to help others and to share my love for fitness was one I couldn't pass up. The 970Muscle Team members are passionate about helping others become the best version of themselves, in the most motivating and positive environment. I am dedicated to helping others reach their goals, all while continuing to educate myself and grow in the health and fitness industry. Part of my excitement with Fitness Coaching is getting to watch and help others fall in love with fitness, and create a healthier lifestyle for themselves. Reaching their goals, hearing their stories, and learning from everyone, continues my own drive to constantly be better.

Don't know where to start? We can help you take that first step! "The first step to getting anywhere is deciding you're not willing to stay where you are."


James McCormick

To say that I have always been involved in Health and Fitness wouldn't be that true..Yes, I was a kid that played street basketball in D.C. and Denver. Parents loved Basketball and Football. Dad was in the school band and Mom was a cheerleader. But, when I hit the real real world into college, Basketball took a backseat for me. Was much easier to cram for tests and exams if I didn't leave the house. Then from that, became depressed and started to get unhealthy in life. Now telling a 20yr old James, "hey man all you need to do, is get back to what you love..." If you aren't listening, you cant hear..I actually sat at in a hotel one summer while the entire family went to Sea World. Fast Forward to 2002, when I took my life back. Focused on one credo, "It's never too late to become what you could've been..."Since then I have pushed myself, and can come from the aspect and the perception of being that guy in the weight room with no clue, being that guy in the group class or small group that had no idea what was going on. Now that is my drive. To match Members and Clients 100% and give all of myself and have them leave better than they came to me.

Here's to The Journey of LIFE!!!


Kaley Flukey

I have been involved with fitness in some way or another since I was in middle school; competing in bodybuilding, training, and learning the constantly changing fitness industry trends.I am very passionate about fitness and nutrition, as they can be developed to be vital tools in acquiring the lifestyle balance of health and happiness. I am equally passionate about mental and spiritual health, with the understanding that becoming strong and confident does not begin with developing physical strength.My training style involves a lot of physical and mental strength training, combining your developed mental strength, your progressive physical strength, and the proper nutrition or 'fuel' for your human body to feel as good as possible while we get you to your goals. With this combination of training, you will be set up not only for your short-term goals, but for a lifestyle change that will benefit the rest of your life!Working together, we can identify and replace daily habits that are holding you back from your destiny, and magnify the strengths and passions you possess that will take you to your next level!

I have the incredible opportunity to coach and train at 970Muscle and would be proud to be on your team in helping guide you to your fitness and wellness goals!

John Brewer

I'm a Georgia native but a Coloradan at heart! I decided to head west after college in pursuit of big whitewater and even bigger mountains. Equal to my love for the outdoors, I'm also passionate about a fit lifestyle and over the years I have discovered just how much they go hand in hand. I began my journey as a Fitness Coach even before my start of college at the University of Georgia. Like many trainers, my style, technique, values and understanding have evolved over the years. I'm a firm believer in functional training and low impact methods, which help protect and promote joint care. My skill sets range from those new to fitness, bodybuilding, show prep, fat loss and general conditioning, all the way to the advanced athlete!

What about this industry am I most passionate about you might ask? It is finding out what type of physique and conditioning it is that will suit you best for achieving your goals and then obtaining it! Of course we can make you fit that dress or tailored shirt the way you would like, but let's go beyond that! Let's also make you a better skier, mountain biker, tennis player, or whatever it is that you enjoy! The key for us in achieving any of this is to have some serious fun along the way and "fun" is what I may do best!!!
