Note: What is Performance Initiatives Gym?

Performance Initiatives is a not-for-profit 501 c3 organization founded in 2005 in Savannah, Georgia. We work hand in hand with Coastal Empire Weightlifting and CrossFit Savannah. The purpose of the organization is to educate and mentor youth and adults mentally, physically, and spiritually by using athletics and fitness, with Olympic-style weight lifting as the base.

Positive character traits are nurtured in participants in the youth programs – aiming for those who have possibly never have seen hope or encouragement in their life.

Who started Performance Initiatives? The founder and director, Kerri Goodrich has been coaching since 2002 and has taken student-athletes to weightlifting competitions throughout the world, including the Youth World Championships in Peru and Slovakia.

She was a member of the U.S. Women’s Weightlifting National team. She is a graduate of Leadership Savannah and has provided leadership training and seminars for many organizations including the YMCA and the Frank Callen Girls and Boys Club.
