About our team

Ren Caldwell, NSCA CSCS, FMS


Owner, Strength and Conditioning Coach

In the last few years, I’ve focused on providing high quality, sport-specific and innovative programming to the ultimate community. I’m committed to working with people to improve their movement patterns and safely load their bodies, especially young female athletes! I write a monthly training column for Skyd Magazine (which has worldwide readership), have released instructional videos through RISE UP, and have been flown around the country and the world to educate ultimate players and coaches. FUN FACT: I used to be a professional modern dancer!


Bert Abbott, NSCA CSCS

Team Programming Coordinator, Strength and Conditioning Coach

I recently made the switch from teaching secondary science to strength and conditioning coaching for ultimate players. As a long-time youth coach and a captain of Seattle Mixtape, I'm excited to work with the Seattle ultimate community in this new capacity. I'm interested in helping teams and individuals move their work in the gym and on the field from simply exercising to sport-specific training. 


Kira Morin, Basi Pilates Instructor

Business Manager, Core & Stabilization Coach

I have been playing recreational ultimate for 10 years and more competitively in the last couple years. I have always loved the spirit of the game and the community it brings. When I got injured (hip labral tear and annular tear in my spine) I turned to RenFitness and Pilates to avoid surgery and to get stronger. It worked! When I heard that Ren wanted to open a gym, I jumped at the opportunity to help in any way I could. I have a background as a Pilates Instructor and in Organizational Development. I like helping people be healthy and strong, and creating systems that help people and organizations be successful. With RenFitess I get to do all of that and get to work in a place that cultivate the ultimate community!
