Jordan West - Exercise Science BS

Jordan grew up playing multiple sports in the Lapeer area. From basketball to soccer to track, Jordan tried it all. He eventually found himself recruited for his talents on the track. He attended both Mott Community College and Eastern Michigan running the 1500m. After finishing his track career he attended Saginaw Valley State obtaining his Bachelor’s in Exercise Science. Jordan hopes to help athletes get the training necessary to become a better athlete. This was something he did not have access to, but quickly realized how important it was.

"I soon realized upon getting to college that the level of training that I had up throughout high school was not nearly what it should’ve been. I couldn’t help but think of “what could have been” if my training was better. As I got older and realized more of what I wanted to do for a career, I vowed to do everything in my power to help the next generation of athletes not feel that “what could have been” and to achieve their highest potential. During my search for an internship location, I felt as though Total Performance was one of the best places for me to learn and grow as a coach to be able to help young athletes reach their goals and help them to the top of their game. I’m really looking forward to what I can learn during my time here and I hope to transition my newfound knowledge from the staff here into a successful career someday!
