What We're About
The undeniable goal in exercise is to promote happiness. As your trainer, my hope is to inspire genuine happiness and pride in the most pure, unadulterated way. The kind of happiness and joy that existed before shame, complexity, and fear of judgement set up shop.
Ascend is about dripping sweat and getting the endorphins pumping. It’s about seeing and feeling results. It’s about working on the outside as a vehicle for joy on the inside, and vice versa. And it’s about a day by day approach with a new workout in your inbox each morning. But mostly, it is about a lifestyle that promotes pure pride and happiness within ourselves. A lifestyle that strengthens our soul so that we don’t feel the need to facetune, filter, and curate out our imperfections. It is my honor to be with you every step of the way. Let’s ASCEND!
In gratitude, Micah

Micah Golden-Grant is approaching his second decade in the Wellness Industry and is as inspired as ever. Born in sunny San Diego, CA, he grew up with his toes in the sand, surfing, playing volleyball, and going to punk rock shows. A natural leader, Micah graduated high school knowing full well that whatever direction his career took, he would want it to involve inspiring people. He attended college at the University of California, Santa Barbara majoring in Sociology to learn how people connect, communicate, and grow and then decided to stay in paradise for another couple of years to receive his Masters Degree in Education. After school, Micah quickly decided to pour his desire to educate and coach into a venue for which he had passion: Fitness. He received his Personal Training Certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and in the following years, worked with just about every kind of client and group: professional skateboarders, beach volleyball players and other athletes, movie and television
stars and performers, and humans looking to tone muscles, lose weight, and feel strong. Micah also managed and professionally developed teams of personal trainers, group fitness instructors, and sales teams at boutique fitness and Sports Medicine studios in Los Angeles and Seattle. Further, he has written or contributed to articles in widely spread magazines and wellness publications on the web. Micah believes that no matter the person, the passion, or the path, fitness always comes down the deep, human desire to be happy, comfortable and free. This seemingly simple yet quite complex concept involves great vulnerability, connection and honestly with one’s self, and a willingness to explore the depths of one’s soul. He has learned through the years to use fitness and physical wellness as a vehicle for his own emotional joy, as opposed to a simple ego boost or a cover for insecurities. For this reason, Micah could not be more excited about.
