Jorey Hansen, A CPT and Elite performance coach has recently as of Jan. 3rd, 2022, purchased full ownership of Prolific Performance, a private, specialized training facility here in St. George.
Born in Houston, Texas, Jorey has always been closely connected to fitness & exercise through his love for athletics. As a former Juco & D1 walk-on football player at Utah State University, Jorey understood early that no achievement would ever come without immense work.
After becoming a college dropout in 2015, failing to receive a degree & working as a front desk clerk at a corporate chain gym, Jorey began personal training early that year and til this moment, has not stopped doing so. Jorey stepped away from the corporate fitness world in 2018 with hopes to pave his own lane in game & he was determined to give himself the best opportunity to HELP others,
Owning Prolific Performance has been a dream of Jorey’s since he was 15 years old. Chasing it down & turning his now private training facility into an Elite spot for athletes & non athletes of the St. George community to better themselves & work together toward a common goal! A healthier community!
Jorey’s mission has always been simple. With a true love for training the youth, we keep them pushing forward as we pass the knowledge we have gained through 15+ years of experience on the field. On a daily basis, we strive to become Prolific.
