Front Desk Coordinator
My name is Rodrenna Dacus, born in New York and raised in South Carolina. Growing up, my family continued to visit New York, which blessed me with an opportunity to experience the interesting differences between the two places. It was a fun experience, to say the least, and it has allowed me to live my day-to-day life with an open mind, as everyone and every place is different. I have worked in customer service for over five years, and I enjoy the interactions that come with it because it’s a new adventure every day. My main hobby is working with photography because it allows me to capture the moments I cherish. In addition to that hobby, a few things I like to do with my downtime are traveling, trying new food, and spending time with my loved ones.

PT, DPT, CSCS, CF-L1
Adam was born and raised in Bay City, MI (also known as the web space on the hand). He played multiple sports growing up, including soccer, baseball, track, and golf. His love for sports and fitness led him to pursue a degree in Exercise Science with a specialization in Health Fitness at Central Michigan University. While at CMU, he worked as a personal trainer, CrossFit coach, bartender, and Graduate Assistant for the Human Cadaver Lab. To complete his undergraduate degree, he decided to move to Columbia, South Carolina, where he interned at Vertex Performance Training to gain more knowledge in coaching and writing strength and conditioning programs. It was a perfect fit for him, and Adam knew that this was where he wanted to be. He subsequently applied to Physical Therapy school at the University of South Carolina.
During PT school, Adam has worked as a Strength Coach for Vertex, taking on clients ranging from high school athletes, CrossFitters, weekend warriors, to patients transitioning back into sports. He also serves as the Head Strength Coach for the Vertex Run Club, designing strength programs tailored to the specific needs of runners.
