Colton Waltner

Colton was born and raised in Newbury Park, Ca, where his love for sports and movement started at a young age. It was apparent from a young age that baseball would be the vehicle that would lead him to playing collegiately for the University of San Diego and later professionally when he was drafted by the Minnesota Twins. After numerous injuries and surgeries, he had to medically retire from baseball but luckily he found a community and home at DEUCE Gym as a student. Not long after he received a challenge from Logan and encouragement from other coaches to join coach’s prep and begin his new journey in fitness. Now hungry as ever, Colton continues to grow as a young coach. Utilizing his experience as a high level athlete and his understanding of primal and functional movements, he strives to make training in the gym as transferable to an individual’s life as possible. Leading from a place of love and connection, Colton understands that training isn’t always about the fitness but it is always about the person.

Everyone except a man by the

Jack of All Trades: Good or Bad?

Benjamin Franklin. All around smart dude and founding father is known for many things like his theories on electricity (i.e. that whole kite and key thing) and notably his help in drafting the Declaration of Independence. But what you may not know is that he is famous for saying one of the most egregiously misquoted
