Meet the Trainers!

Gorden Cooley

Gorden found climbing in 2005 and has been psyched ever since. A former student athlete, climbing imparted a means to stay fit while participating in a sport that he loves. For Gorden climbing is more than a hobby. It gives him focus in training, recreation and life.

Earning a Bachelor’s Degree in kinesiology, Gorden has had the pleasure to train some phenomenally strong climbers, and to see first hand what makes them tick. He is a certified strength and conditioning coach, and holds a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Sonoma State University. He began his career in fitness as a personal trainer in local Santa Rosa gyms. This eventually led to establishing the training department at Vertex. Developing his strength and conditioning system in both climbing and traditional gyms has given him a unique understanding of climbing specific athletic development.

As owner of Vertex he is dedicated to providing a welcoming space and a rich variety of programs for everyone to reach their full athletic potential.

Lucas Judson

Ahoy! I’m so happy to be a part of the Vertex family, because it has always been so good to me! I started training with Gorden and doing the AbDom classes in 2023 and quickly fell in love with fitness and crushing goals. When I’m not here, you can catch me disc golfing at the local tournaments, or if Im not answering my phone its because Im in the wilderness doing some river rafting.

It is my genuine pleasure to help give back after Vertex absolutely turned my life around and changed my relationship with fitness. Let me know anytime if you want to move some heavy metal!
