Mercedes Pollmeier MS, CSCS / Modus Athletica 

Mercedes Pollmeier

I am passionate about coaching motivated athletes to climb stronger not just for their next project, but for how they will feel long term, arming them with the knowledge to know themselves better as they pursue their athletic journey. It is my goal to advise athletes on how to train strength and flexibility effectively, while also working on their nutrition, mindset, and recovery.

I love seeing my clients progress and gain confidence, as well as to hear about all the new things they have learned about themselves through the process of training with me.

I also love to stay up-to-date with current research and am always continuing my education in the areas of health, fitness, and climbing. I have a Master's degree in Human Movement and Sports Conditioning. I am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach through the NSCA and a Level 2 nutrition coach through Precision Nutrition.
