SPORTS PERFORMANCE & PHOTOGRAPHY
Hi! I'm Coach COJO
2010: Began Coaching Gymnastics at Hawkeye Gymnastics in Iowa City.
2013: Opened Hard Drive as a business and began doing private lessons for strength and conditioning and helping my husband run the martial arts classes; specifically, kickboxing. During this time I began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA in conjunction with the kickboxing. We also developed one of the first girls wrestling programs in the area. I was also responsible for documenting the journey and earning a photography degree from the Academy of Art, which was how I developed a passion for sports photography.
2017: Graduated From Academy of Art with a degree in photography/photojournalism
2018: Hard Drive opened up on our new/current location and I began taking a larger number of clients for strength and conditioning and eventually grew out of the space at Hard Drive
2020: Opened HD Elite and focused on solely developing athletes.
2022: Have worked with 100s of youth athletes in our area and looking forward to providing our area’s athletes with more opportunities.

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. – Bruce Lee
