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.
Tiffani started working at Vertex in 2007 at the age of 15. She is passionate about health and fitness and enjoys helping people reach their fitness goals, whether it be through strength training, improving their climbing skills, or honing their overall fitness. She has a B.S in Chemistry from the University of California Santa Cruz, and a personal training certification from NASM.
Tiffani uses every opportunity to get outside and climb. Her other hobbies include hiking/backpacking, camping, spending time with her dogs, and reading about nutrition.
Garrett was introduced to climbing by a friend back in 2007. Before that, he competed and taught fencing at SRJC. Climbing quickly became a passion, combining mind and body to push yourself to reach new limits. After taking various classes at Vertex for nearly 14 years, he decided to get his NASM certification and start teaching. He finds it especially rewarding to help clients meet goals and accomplish workouts that they have never been able to do before.
Outside of climbing, Garrett also enjoys traveling the world, painting, Magic the Gathering, and board games.
