Sean Mata

Growing up, Sean has always had a passion for health and fitness. He started playing soccer at the age of 4 which then continued throughout high school. During his short college career challenging himself in the gym became a priority. While studying Hotel Restaurant Management in college and burnt out on studying and paying student loans his mother asked him “what do you want to do with your life?” He answered, “I want to own a gym.” So it began…
Sean began picking up towels in the locker room at the Houstonian Lite while he began slowly climbing the ladder. By the time he left, he was a personal trainer, spin instructor (mic and all), and membership manager. In December of 2012 he opened Covenant with 6 members, some are still here today! In 2014 he qualified for the CrossFit regional competition as an individual. Aside from competition, Sean thoroughly enjoys engaging with the community in and outside of the gym.
In 2018, Sean decided to take the gym to another level by not being affiliated to the CF brand and focusing on multiple training systems. Although CF changed his life forever, his hunger grew for more knowledge in the health and fitness industry. His number one priority is dedicated to creating a healthier lifestyle amongst fellow Houstonian’s through knowledge and experience. Along with improving his skills as a coach/trainer, Sean continues to pursue certifications offered throughout the community. If Sean is not in the gym he’s hanging out with his beautiful family. He enjoys traveling to the mountains, hanging out with Juice, or completing house projects.

Brandon August

Brandon started his athletic career playing baseball, which he stuck with for nearly a decade. After a string of injuries and shoulder surgery, he switched his focus to strengthening his body with functional movements by first exploring the sport of powerlifting during his first year of graduate school at Baylor College of Medicine. At his first powerlifting meet in Houston, TX in 2015, Brandon observed a CrossFit competition being held in the same arena. He was immediately captivated by the camaraderie within the community of people competing on the same side, but also teams and individuals competing against one another. Within a few weeks, Brandon began practicing functional movements through the application of weightlifting and CrossFit and hasn’t looked back. Since then, he has competed in several CrossFit competitions including Wodapalooza in Miami, FL in 2017 and The Fittest Experience in Austin, TX in 2019.
Brandon is passionate about obtaining and spreading knowledge, as shown by his work towards the completion of his PhD in cancer biology. This passion extends to coaching, where he enjoys teaching skills and functional movements, improving fundamental movement patterns, educating people on health and fitness, and ultimately helping others reach their fitness goals. Brandon continues to expand his education through certifications and the scientific literature, which he then applies to his life and the lives of others around him.
Brandon obtained his CrossFit L-1 certification and is eager to continue his education by completing additional certifications and coaching athletes from all backgrounds. Outside the gym, you’ll most likely find Brandon with his dog Bella, spending time with loved ones, and enjoying nature.

Mateo Jimenez

Mateo enjoys various competitions around the Texas area. He is a member of multiple amateur soccer teams and a regular participant of marathon races. Competition and challenging workouts is what attracted Mateo to the gym, but is the friendships and community that keep bringing him back. He enjoys seeing people from different backgrounds encourage each other to reach their personal fitness goals.

Jack Feigleson

In his early years Jack lived by the motto “Ball is Life” playing basketball competitively year round through high school. After high school, Jack participated in multiple intramural sports at Clemson University and after graduating returned to Houston where he transitioned to spending most of his weekends on the lake wakeboarding & wake surfing. Looking for a new challenge and motivation to his workouts after injuries from the lake begin to add up, Jack tried several of the group fitness options available in Houston. He found Covenant in 2015 and from the first day knew it was the perfect fit of community and programming.
Jack begin coaching at Covenant in summer of 2019 and has enjoyed the added challenge coaching brings with it as well as getting to know Covenant members better across all class times. Jack lives in Houston with his wife Ricaé. They enjoy traveling whenever they can and promoting and experiencing all things Houston Heights when in town!

Sarah Miszkiel
Coach

Sarah Miszkiel

Maintaining an active lifestyle has always been an integral part of Sarah’s life. She grew up in the mountains on the New Mexico/Colorado border, where hiking and skiing were regular occurrences. When she wasn’t on the trail, she could be found on the soccer field or tennis court. In high school, her soccer coach introduced her to Olympic weightlifting and she was hooked, even competing in local weightlifting competitions.
Over the years, she has shifted her focus to building strength for everyday life. Two of her most recent accomplishments include finishing the Houston Marathon and MS150. As she has participated in more endurance sports, she’s never lost her love of the barbell. She enjoys sharing this passion with the Covenant community. For Sarah, Covenant is much more than a gym. It’s a family that fosters and encourages the personal growth of each member; building stronger individuals and a tighter community.
Outside of the gym, Sarah enjoys climbing new mountains around the world with her husband, Ray.
