Meet Your Phoenix Team

Travis Grant - Founder/Owner/Trainer / Coach


I am originally from Clemson, SC. While in high school I set the school and state records for the most yards passing in a single season. I also set several state records in track & field.   I left to attend the University of Nebraska and become a Cornhusker.  While participating in both football and track & field I set school records in the 40y dash, 55m Dash, 60m Dash, 100m Dash, 200m Dash, 4x100m Relay, and the 4 x 400m Relay.  After college I spent 10 years running for NIKE International Track & Field Team and Team USA. At different points in time I have held the world's fastest time in the 100m dash and 4x100m Relay. I have competed in 3 Olympic Trials and was an alternate in the Olympic 100m dash. Since retiring from football and track & field I have excelled in martial arts training.  I am currently a 3rd Degree Level 4 Black Belt in Taekwondo.  I am Certified as a Personal Trainer, Nutritionist, and Speed/Agility Coach. I know speed. I know strength. I know agility. I know excellence.  If you're up to my challenge, train like the Phoenix and Always Rise.

Chyna Grant - Office Administration / Meal Prep


I am originally from Lincoln, NE and I recently joined the Phoenix team.  Travis is my dad and has "trained" me since I can remember.  While growing up in Lincoln I participated in Track & Field for South Lincoln Track and the Lincoln Jets.  As a 12 y/o I had the fastest 100m dash time in Nebraska.  That was awesome.  I have also attained my Black Belt in Taekwondo.  Come see us at the gym and don't forget our meal planning to help you reach your goals.  As always, train like the Phoenix and Always Rise.
