Cory Ortman


Growing up Cory was always the fat kid. At his peak, he was 280 lbs…in eighth grade. He eventually decided to make a change and started exercising and by the time he was a sophomore in high school he was down 100 lbs. During this time he was inspired to start lifting weights and becoming strong.

His lifting career started, like most teenagers, at his local gym. Without an idea of what he was doing, he was graciously taken in by some of the more experienced lifters.

Over the years, Cory's passion for training grew and drove him to get his degree in Physical Activity and Sports Performance and also for competing in powerlifting.

Now, Cory's focus for training is based on quality movement patterns and strength. Cory believe these two qualities lay a strong foundation for any fitness related goal.
