In 2008, after a long break from Football, Ed reclaimed his passion for fitness, sport and nutrition. After gaining an unhealthy amount of weight, it was time for a change. Through the efforts of his personal trainer, encouragement and support from his loving wife, and plain determination and hard work, the results spoke for themselves. Ed experienced higher self esteem, a healthier and more fit physique, and a better quality of life. It wasn’t long before Ed was competing in local and regional level competitions testing his strength and conditioning. Though the physical and emotional transformation was nice, he realized that his true passion for fitness wasn’t for his own personal accolades and goals, but helping others reach theirs. After coaching for over 4 years, Ed has come full circle to open and co-own The Tribe Strength & Conditioning. Whether an aspiring athlete, weightlifter, or someone who simply wants to better their quality of life, Ed is excited to share his education in fitness, olympic weightlifting and nutrition in an effort to make a positive impact on your life.

She has been a lifelong athlete since she started gymnastics at age 5. Brooke was awarded best all-around athlete propelling her forward to professionally coach as an NCA (National Cheer Association) Instructor all over the state of Texas. After competing in cheer and taking 1st at the collegiate level at Southeastern University in Florida, Brooke decided to focus more on academics and acting. It was during this time when she stumbled upon CrossFit, which renewed her drive to compete. She instantly fell in love with her new-found community. Brooke graduated with a BA in Communications and a focus in film/acting; however, CrossFit quickly took precedence in her life. When she moved to Austin after college she made the decision to pursue a career in health/nutrition and fitness.
Brooke has now been professionally coaching for 7 years in San Antonio as well as being a head ocach and general manager at a gym in Austin. Being born and raised in San Antonio herself, she is very excited to call it home once again! Overall, Brooke has been Crossfitting for 10 years and intends to make it her lifelong passion.
In addition to being a coach at The Tribe Brooke manages Flourish Iv Therapy, is a write, runs Break Down The Walls, and focuses on being a God fearing wife to her husband Eric and mother to Noah.
Break Down The Walls is the Women’s Only Event Brooke started at The Tribe. It is a group of women who through honesty and love, break down hindering walls and build one another up while getting in a sweat. This event entails a fun partner workout followed by treats, fellowship and a testimony of trial and triumph. You can learn more by following BDTW at @break.downthewalls on Instagram.

Brooke’s motto is to do all things with excellence unto the Lord, as she strives to keep a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
“Life isn’t a race, it’s a marathon… consistency and practicing correct habits will take you to that next level in life. Even if you don’t finish first, the important thing is that you finished.”
Shawn is currently a Kinesiology Student at the University Of Texas at San Antonio.
He began CrossFit the summer before his freshman year of high school as a way to strength train for football. As he dove more and more into the world of CrossFit he quickly realized his passion for the sport and began competing in the CrossFit Open in the teenage division. His success in the Open lead him to securing a spot in the Online Qualifier where he placed well but missed the cutoff to qualify for the CrossFit Games by a few spots!
As Shawn grew more as an athlete he began to also discover his passion for seeing others progress in the sport as well. He began shadowing under Nick and Ed in late 2018 and became a coach for The Tribe by the end of that year. Coaching for Shawn isn’t just a job, it’s an outlet for him to serve others and watch them grow in their athletic journey!
Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.”

Pearson graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Kinesiology in 2015. During his time at Texas Tech, he discovered his passion for fitness and nutrition. This passion quickly led him into the world of Physique Competing. After graduating, Pearson was losing interest in the Bodybuilding world and was looking for something to fulfill his competitive spirit. In 2016, Pearson fell into the world of Crossfit and hasn’t looked back. Throughout his time in Crossfit he realized his passion for motivating and encouraging others. This passion opened the door for him to become a coach at The Tribe in 2019. Pearson works with all athletes at any skill level: young athletes looking to make it to the next level in their sport, people coming out of physical therapy trying to regain strength, and the everyday athlete trying to improve their overall quality of life. His goal is to see everyone who walks through the Tribe doors have their life impacted in a positive way!
In addition to coaching classes and personal training at The Tribe, Pearson works at Airrosti as a Logistics Specialist. He has been there for 4 1/2 years and enjoys working with athletes in all different avenues.
