The Elevate Mission

Meet Matt and Paden


Matt Moore


Leader / Visionary / Son of God
The one who goes first.

God placed the vision of Elevate on my heart at a young age. As c*vid shattered my lifelong dreams of college baseball I had a decision to make. To take the 4 year beaten path leaving me with a meaningless piece of paper, a job I dreaded, and a life castrated of adrenaline or do I bet on myself going all in on the vision of building a brand, traveling the world, and paving the path for other men. Men who also feel the pull down the path less traveled.

As I write this, I am 3 years self employed and Elevate has now grown to over 150 men. God continues to use me for far more than I could've imagined. Connecting men from all over the world, hosting events of 100+ guys, and defying all the people who told me I was "throwing my life away" by not choosing path 1.

My passion is simple. Trail blaze, empower, and cultivate an environment around path 2 for guys like you. To build a brand and a community to act as a foundation for men who choose to join me on this narrow path. The path to becoming ones best self and fully embodying what Elevate is truly all about. Living life at the highest level.

That is my selfish mission for what is being built here. To share this life of fulfillment, adrenaline, and purpose.

To display what it means to walk with God. 

Paden Hodges


Driven / Passionate / Son of God
A foundation for others.

I embody our Elevate motto "Life at the highest level" because I am filled with curiosity of the depths in which I can take my mind and body. Testing the limits through vigorous physical challenges such as Strongman and Ironman while intellectually tasking myself to reach millions with this God given mission in Elevate.

My vision stays fixed on growth and the adventure that lies ahead as I simultaneously ensure that no man is left behind as we walk the path to excellence together.

I carry a deeply rooted passion for experiences as I tap further into every inch this world has to offer. This passion bleeds into my favorite aspect of Elevate... Events. I get to share my passion with others as I cultivate experiences all over the world for our members to connect, grow, and explore. From crafting the electric atmosphere of our annual THOS deadlift competition to leading men through their deepest fears at 14,000ft elevation.

I was alone on the self development journey... craving a fresh start, a higher standard, and a brotherhood to lean on. I found that in joining Elevate

Now I am determined to give this gift to millions. The gift that God gave me.

The gift of Elevate.  

Why we have dedicated our lives to building community

God has given us a mission to bring together like minded men because we both have experienced the loneliness of self development and ultimately the loneliness of being a man in todays world. So we have created a space for men to connect. A space where true strength is found through vulnerability and men can open up about their struggles. Our mission is to build a brand that reaches millions of people and empowers them to lean into that higher calling for their life. That pull you get to do something that the rest of the world just won't understand you for. But we will. We are building a community and a brand for those who feel called to take the path less traveled. Those who know they need the best surrounding them to become their best. Those will answer their call from God and truly embody what it means to Elevate and live life at the highest level.
