About Me


I’m CJ Gotcher, an officer in the Naval Reserve and strength coach living and training in Vista, California.

I’m a Certified Starting Strength Coach, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach (Pn1), CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, and Super Saiyan.

My passion is simple: to take the complex and break it down into practical, useful tips and platform coaching to help you achieve success in mission, sport, and life.

I provide platform coaching, program design, and physical fitness test preparation out of Iron Monger’s Gym, the Strongest Gym in North County.
