WHAT IS HAMMERHEART?

 

Hammerheart Strength & Conditioning is a gym in Corvallis, Oregon that specializes in small- group training (all classes are limited to 6 participants) and personal training. I place a strong emphasis on educating my clientele how to properly train themselves, with a focus on improving their total body strength, mobility, flexibility, and endurance.

More specifically, "Hammerheart" is a heavy metal album by the Swedish artist Bathory. Its perhaps one of my favorite albums of all time and to this day continues to impart its energy, wisdom, and courage upon me.

WHO AM I?


WHO AM I?


In 2011 I began an internship with the athletic performance department at Oregon State University. I worked daily with the schools Division 1 football program, eventually assisting with other teams including women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s swimming. After three years as an intern, I began searching for the next step in my athletic performance career. I met with other colleges, professional teams, and notable private facilities. While some of these paths seemed appealing, particularly the professional level careers, they all had two things in common: I had to leave Oregon, and they wanted all of my time. I knew I had come to a crossroads. After much deliberation, and a little bit of time working as a barista, I decided to create Hammerheart. Today, I operate Hammerheart mostly full time,  while spending the rest of the time raising my wonderful daughter.

I have a bachelor of arts in history from American University, where I wrote my thesis on Captain America. I also developed an incredible fondness for Japan while studying there (and a little in Japan) and that influence can be seen in the gym.

I’m married to a beautiful, intelligent, and compassionate woman that I first met when I was 10 years old. We have one human child, Sophie, and one dog child, Big Lou. 

 

[Jordan’s] willingness and ability to connect with all people (student athletes, staff and clients) is really what separates Jordan from your normal performance coach... Jordan approached each day at Oregon State University the same way he approaches everyday of his life; that each day is a blessed opportunity to provide the positive spark in someone else’s life.
— Bryan Miller, Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach, Navy Football

 

I have had the pleasure of knowing Jordan for 5 years, I think very highly of him. I would recommend anybody in the Pacific Northwest who is trying to reach competitive excellence in any athletic arena to train at hammer heart. Jordan is committed to the individual and will go to great lengths to make sure his clients are receiving the best possible training to meet their individual and competitive goals. Also, to the individual who is looking for a healthy lifestyle change: Jordan is a great teacher and a living example of his teachings….what a great person to learn from.
