We pride ourselves in our coaching and high levels of standards in regards to fitness and knowledge. Our coaches all must go through our certification to coach at our facility.
He founded Atomic in 2009, after getting a business degree (barely) from Texas State University. Being a fiscally responsible adult he convinced the US ARMY that they should pay for his college in exchange for 4 years of shooting guns, roping out of helos, and jumping out of airplanes. They accepted his proposal and sent him to 3rd Ranger Battalion in Fort Benning, Georgia where he spent the next 4 years of his life giving his superiors gray hair and training new Rangers.
He used to be a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association but let it expire because, well, the NSCA is a racket and he was tired of them trying to take his money.
Early on in his career Jake spent 2 years as a contract coach for Military Athlete (now MTI) where he was an instructor for their military programming seminars and Range Fitness program. He has coached athletes of all levels from UFC fighters, competitive grapplers, Force Recon Marines, SFOD Candidates, SFAS candidates, Professional Mountain Guides, Special Forces Instructors (SWCS), FBI agents, Professional Triathletes, First Responders, SWAT Officers, Professional Skiers / Snowboarders, and everyday athletes.
Fantasy novels, chasing elk in the mountains with a bow, doing Karate, recreating John Wick scenes, drawing dicks on cars.

Coach Moore’s athletic experience runs the gamut: marathons, competitive triathlete, and getting punched in the face repeatedly in Thailand by some of the best kickboxers on the planet.

Saying inappropriate things to shock an awe and audience, groping moms, Rose, excessively fancy meals.

Jordan spent six years in the Navy as a nuclear operator aboard the USS Charlotte (SSN 766)where he shared a bed with 2 other men. Afterwards, he attended and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas at Austin in 2009. He weighed a whopping 150lbs.
During college, he competed as a road cyclist, including Nationals at Fort Collins in 2008. But that really doesn’t matter as road cycling is the golf of endurance sports.
He was a National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, but, you know, that whole thing’s a total racket, so he let it expire also but not because he disagreed with their capitalist structure but because he is the cheapeast coach at Atomic. He has certifications from Athlete’s Performance and is a Military Athlete (now Mountain Tactical) certified coach and spent 3 years coaching and designing training programs for U.S. military members the world over, many preparing for selections and/or assessments of every kind.
He has coached and instructed certifications for multiple Army and Air Force units. Additionally, he’s worked with multiple law enforcement units including DEA, U.S. Marshals, BORSTAR and BORTAC, and FBI.
Jordan has had the privilege to work with multiple world-class endurance athletes and sports, including coaching one to a U.S. National Ski Mountaineering Championship, and another to a podium. He has coached world champion alpine skiers, professional ultra-runners, top-level professional mountain guides (Exum, JHMG), high-level sport and trad climbers.

Brittan realized there was probably more to life than being really, really, really ridiculously good looking, so he left his modeling career in Milan to focus on his studies. While completing his degree in business, he applied as an intern to Atomic Athlete where he fetched food and coffee for the senior coaches, giving out back rubs when summoned. He attended our first SOFFIC course alongside Special Forces cadre from Fort Bragg and passed the Atomic Athlete Coaching Assessment with flying colors. In 2017 he came on full-time and he now manages Atomic Outpost. Coach Brittan doesn’t drink coffee because humming birds need sugar; Capri Sun is his food of choice. He also eats pizza, tacos, and cake every three hours to stay in optimal shape and keep the Mullet growing strong (pizza grease is a great alternative to hair conditioner).

Billy began training at Atomic in July of 2013 and quickly learned he was not as manly as he once thought himself to be. Atomic would help him tap into his true potential, one sweaty session after the next. His love for the gym and its community grew so large, solely training with his fellow athletes was not enough. Billy set his eyes on becoming a coach and in the Spring of 2015, that dream came true. If you are an early birdie, you just might catch sight of Coach Billy in a 6:00am session. Just don’t bring him any oatmeal raisin cookies; he knows fool’s chocolate when he sees it, and will pulverize said cookies with his bare hands.
