​​Meryl is an Integrated Coach, athlete, competitive powerlifter, and owner of Wicked Iron Strength. She has over 10 years of coaching experience working with athletes, military, and high performing humans. Her coaching focuses on strength, nutrition, mindset, and behavior change. She works with her clients to make fitness and nutrition work for them and with them as part of their life so they can happily live a life that feels whole, empowering, and ever-evolving. 

She supports others in building their strongest body AND their strongest minds because she believes that THIS is where the coolest shit happens. There are so many parallels in life and she aims to help her clients connect them so they can feel empowered and grow their confidence as a whole.

Meryl fell into the fitness industry after an expected pivot in life and truly can’t picture it any other way. She has found her passion and she continues to push and pursue growth. She lives and breathes her message every day and is building a compassionate coaching business that is client centered and impact driven.


Paul's singular goal is to raise the bar for coaching. He is committed to being the signal through the static of the fitness and health industry.
