Kristin Horowitz – CEO /Founder
Kristin is the machine that makes everything work. She has been working for small businesses as the principal support of the owners since she was in college. Office manager, Quickbooks maestro, marketing manager, you name it, she’s done it all.

She has the unique ability to learn things quickly and save money because of it. She handles everything from legal compliance to vendor contracts to financial oversight to cultural atmosphere and policy setting.
Yishai Horowitz – Business Development Director/Founder
Yishai is the believer. He pushes the standards of excellence whether its in offerings, aesthetics, or the larger vision for our community.
He’s the one that’s responsible for the layout of the gyms, shape of the walls, and character of the place. He spends his free time looking at buildings, analyzing climbing walls, and developing relationships that enable us to grow and contribute the community in a myriad of ways.
He is also the primary race director (and founder) of an event company that specializes in high logistics human powered, outdoor events.
Jessica Mitchell – Chief of Operations
She looks at a problem and says “HOW DO I SOLVE IT?” but the best part about it is that she solves it with energy, delegation, and support.
She started out with our organization as an event planner and has moved up the ranks because of her penchant for making things better when she’s frustrated, her candor, and her sass. A previous regional manager for a large retail operation, Jessie’s bringing her retail game to our mech and taking everything she’s learned from “real corporate world” and making it useful for us.
Jon-Erik Storm – In House Counsel
After a colorful career in business and employment law, Jon gave it all up for joy and moved to the Central Coast where he only uses his JD for good (and us). When he gets bored, he learns a new language, teaches math and Spanish, and serves the California military as a JAG and Deputy Chief of Staff for the military.
Human Resources Director
You need heart, investment, and things done right? You go to Jacob. He keeps us on track, stable, and grounded.
Customer Relations Director
An advocate for the customer, the team member, and her own bosses, she believes in the mission and never wants it to be just on paper. And she works to make sure team feels the same way.
Setting director and interim-youth programming director
A certifiable super boss – he elevates those around him to new heights, both when he’s setting and designing coaching programs.
