About Kyle

"My name is Kyle, and I am a certified Strength & Conditioning Coach with over 10 years of coaching experience. I have worked with just about every sport out there, I coach group Strength classes, and I also do one on one personal training. Athletes are my specialty, however working individually with clients has allowed me to focus on specific needs and goals for each person. My training philosophy revolves around a barbell, free weights, and executing movements with proper form and technique. My attention to detail allows me to get the best out of my clients, but also allows me to be a better coach. In addition to personal training, I also do personalized programming. I believe when we learn how to track, progress, and measure our intensity and volume, we become much more aware of what we are truly putting our bodies through."
