Our team of coaches and instructors varies in personality, interests, background, and coaching style. One thing that holds true in all of our coaches and instructors is that we all aim to provide a welcoming and safe environment to meet you as you are and safely challenge you from that point forward, both physically and mentally.
Coach Dillon | Golf, real-estate, and being a husband + dad to two adorable little girls take up most of this guy's time, but man we love having him around Assemble. He is incredibly strong, one of the hardest workers in the room, and he expects the same effort from everyone in class while he's coaching - you will hear him, no doubt. If you think he works hard, you should see him play. He's sucker for a good dad joke and on any given day he could tell you how many days he has left until golfing Bandon Dunes.
Coach Emma | This adventurous, old soul stole all of our hearts the moment she walked through our doors. Coach CoCo as the 5 AM class calls her, loves rock climbing, triathlons, baking delicious healthy goods, and living into her faith. She has a love and passion for overall health and helping others live wholesome, fruitful lives. Her and her husband love good coffee, whiskey, wine, and exploring the great outdoors. We love every ounce of who she is and what she brings to this community, truly a blessing sent from above.
Coach Kelsey | From the advice she gives during class to being right beside you as you cross the finish line, she is the coach in your ear at all times. She commands a room with her confidence in both herself and everyone she coaches. Her background in exercise science is very noticeable in how she breaks things down, but it's her passion for mental conditioning that really shines through. As a mom of two kids who love sports, she started at Assemble to help with our sports performance training program and boy does she have a knack for it. She was meant to coach and you can usually catch her doing it with a big ol' smile on her face!
Coach & Yoga Instructor Marisa | Grit and grace at its finest, she is truly one of a kind. If she was going through something, perhaps even cancer, you would never know if you did not know. Her mantra and name of her full-time massage business, "All Good Days." When things get tough in a workout physically, she focuses on what still feels good/is going well. She is a wife to a firefighter/EMT and mom to two young boys and she is one tough cookie. As a coach and yoga instructor, she understands the human body very well.
Coach Mike | Lead guitarist/vocalist of the Assemble band (if there was one), super-dad, stand up comedian, sommelier, and the list goes on. As soon as Mike walks in the door, everyone's day is better. It is almost a guarantee he will be one of the first people to make you laugh and feel right at home. He leads by example in how he goes about his workouts and is always up for a good time or a friendly competition.
Coach Nellie | Captain activities, the most loyal friend, a nurse, wife to a firefighter, an incredible eye for design, and a new mom to our favorite little Hayes! This busy body loves staying active. It was a priority for her to exercise throughout her entire pregnancy as she recognizes the benefits for both the mom and baby during pregnancy, labor and delivery, as well as postpartum. Nellie is super athletic, loves having a good time at all times, and wants to make sure things are done right. She's thorough in all that she does and loves the details, which shows in how she coaches. We love having her and Baby Hayes around!
Coach, Yoga Instructor & Owner Kesha | A person who truly enjoys the process of pursuing a goal. Since she was a little kid, her father has called her sunshine, and it fits. Kesha's personality is warm, but there's an edge there. She takes her personal growth and that of others seriously. Kesha has been in the strength and conditioning space for almost fifteen years, and has turned Assemble into the premier health and performance training experience in Washington. With an emphasis on vulnerability, kindness, limitless thinking, hard work, and community at all times - she is the nucleus behind this place.
Coach & Owner Marshall | As a prior two sport collegiate athlete, this guy pitched a no-hitter, hit a grand slam, and not only threw for but also caught a couple touch downs at both quarterback and receiver. Marshall loves to stay active and prefers if it involves some competition. From bow hunting in the fall and salmon fishing in Alaska every summer to mountain biking and golfing, he is known as Mr. Hobbies. While he works full time in commercial insurance and never had any aspirations to coach, we love any chance he steps in to coach because he is full of knowledge and actionable advice.
