Our Philosopy

We believe each person has unlimited potential to achieve far more than they feel is possible. In order to reach that potential, one must be able to envision their dream, embark on the journey, navigate and persevere through the storms, reach their summit and then use the momentum gained to create a new vision. This is a Summit Journey.

We believe that a healthy lifestyle is of paramount importance to obtaining the Summit Journey. Well-balanced nutrition, fitness, and mental health are the tools needed for achievement.

We believe when great effort is put into reaching personal summits, grand rewards will follow.

Aaron Ogden
Chief Fitness Officer

Aaron is a native Utahn who was raised in a family that actively embraced an outdoor lifestyle, using the four distinct seasons of Utah to become proficient at many outdoor activities. He graduated from the University of Utah in Exercise Science. Since sitting at a desk was not in his make-up, he pursued a career in health and fitness.

Aaron is a certified personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine, has Reebok Neuromuscular Training, is a herbalist from School of Natural Healing, and is a Wilderness First Responder.

Aaron is dedicated to his own self-development using continued education, community service and physical activity that pushes his own abilities. Some of the adventures he has done are backpacking for 6 months across Alaska with just the pack on his back, many adventure races, and whitewater kayaking on more than 100 rivers, including the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon. Each of these adventures strip the layers and help him to connect to who he really is.

Aaron has worked with many people and is continually amazed at how many people simply exercise for their health, but then do nothing to reward themselves for the effort put in.  For this reason, he founded KOLIfit, a company that prepares people with the fitness level and skills to accomplish amazing things outdoors. His passion is to help people to experience life in the great outdoors.

Aaron’s spirit animal is the Bear Cub: Work hard, play hard and learn all you can.
