New to Prevail!
If you’ve been into Prevail Conditioning recently, you have probably noticed some new faces. If you get a chance to say hello and introduce yourself, please do! Our new staff and interns would love to meet you.
Please welcome our new team members.
Mallory Langston-Cooper: Yoga instructor extraordinaire. We have looked high and low to find a Yoga instructor who is the perfect compliment to Prevail’s holistic, multidisciplinary approach…Mallory was our great find. Make sure to check out her Saturday morning Yoga class (all of you who need extra mobility work!)
Justin Willis, CPT, CES, PES: Justin is a recent grad from UCSB and a great addition to our Strength Coach and post rehab training team.
Leah Gaston, CMT:
massage therapy and bodywork has been a long time search and desire for Prevail Conditioning. We are so excited to have Leah on board to offer our clients the soft tissue, trigger point, and myofascial therapy they need. Schedule with her soon!
Alexis Anderson, BS, CSCS:
she is tiny little thing, but sharp as a tack, packed with power, and full of smiles. Alexis is a recent grad of Westmont College and has been a fantastic addition to our Strength Coach and Personal Training team.
Kim Tom, CPT: another wonderful addition to our Personal Training staff. Kim brings a passion for fitness and desire to combine it with travel and adventure for clients looking for something new.
Prevail has the best Interns around. Say hello to our summer crew and see if you can stump them with an exercise physiology question!

Chris Ecklund named Director of Performance & Fitness at La Cumbre Country Club, Santa Barbara
Not too long after Peter Blumert’s arrival at Prevail Conditioning, he and I began to brainstorm some opportunities that may exist in Santa Barbara for us to develop new and exciting relationships that would allow us to further the industry-leading performance enhancement and fitness work we were doing within the walls of our facility. Our desire was to look externally for some possibilities to create satellite Prevail Conditioning Performance Centers at new locations where our impact and reach could grow.
After a couple years of looking into some options, we are excited to announce that a partnership has officially begun with La Cumbre Country Club
. As of July 1st, 2014, I have taken the position of Director of Performance & Fitness at La Cumbre Country Club. For the last several years, LCCC has invested great time and monies into their development of a brand new and cutting edge Performance/Fitness Center. Through some wonderful relationships in the community, their need for a Performance Director was made known to us and we felt it was the perfect fit for Prevail.
Thus, as of July 1st, I am dedicating daily focus to LCCC in order to implement a satellite Prevail Conditioning systems and methodology into LCCC which will function under the banner La Cumbre Country Club. We will be staffing and serving the members with our highly degreed and certified Prevail Conditioning Trainers, Massage Therapists, Therapists, and Yoga professionals.
This will also allow me to continue to function in the CEO role for Prevail Conditioning Performance Center downtown in Santa Barbara while Peter Blumert will run the day-to-day operations of the facility. I will continue to be available and reachable for our clients, so please do not hesitate to call or email me directly should you have any questions or needs.
We are extremely excited about this new relationship and look forward to great things with La Cumbre Country Club. They have a fine tradition of excellence and a warm atmosphere that has spanned over 100 years.

Happy 4th of July weekend to you all. I trust this is a week of celebration and gratitude for the gifts and blessings we get to enjoy with our freedoms as citizens of this country.
As I sit and reflect a bit this week, I realize it has been some time since I have taken a moment to get all of you caught up to date with the wonderful and exciting things that are happening inside (and outside) the walls of Prevail Conditioning Performance Center. So allow me a moment to do so…
Peter Blumert, MS, CSCS, USAW is Prevail Conditioning’s new Co-Owner!
As many of you may already know, Peter Blumert and his lovely wife, Erin, moved to Santa Barbara nearly 3 years ago to join the team at Prevail Conditioning and explore the opportunities as Performance Director and Strength Coach at Prevail. We prayerfully and thoughtfully considered this move for some time and were led to pursue it. One of the primary reasons for this move was to explore the possibility of Peter becoming a Business Partner in Prevail Conditioning. After over a year of discussing and working together, Peter and I agreed to move forward with that relationship. So, we are delighted to pass along to you the official announcement that Peter is now a Business Partner and Co-Owner of Prevail Conditioning. It has truly been a joy and pleasure to have Peter and Erin here with us and we are so excited for the wonderful gifts and passions that Peter and Erin bring to us.
