Why did you go into Personal Training?
In 1998, I was in a bus accident where I suffered a traumatic brain injury and was not given great odds. After surviving, I had to go through 6 months of physical rehab and wore a helmet for 2 years. After rehab, I had to see a cognitive therapist after school for 7 years. They said I would never go to high school, never go to college, and never be able to compete in sports. It was a serious blow, but with the support of my family and friends, I was able to get the help I needed and work through my disability. I finally overcame it and have the success I have today. I love to bring hope, direction and help people the way I was supported all my life.
Kyle’s Success Stories
Staying motivated is the most difficult challenge of wellness programs. In addition to Kyle’s personalized attention to my fitness goals, he actually makes my training experience fun! He incorporates a variety of routines during each session, which definitely helps keep me motivated and returning for more!
Training with Kyle helped me improve my health and overall fitness. Kyle is a good listener. He personalizes fitness plans for me and my goals. He is very professional and knowledgeable. Kyle is personable and always makes me feel comfortable. He focuses on correct form and monitors me closely. As a result, I feel safe and confident, even when working out on my own or in a Group Fitness class. He is a great motivator. He is encouraging and challenging. He makes the sessions fun, and always ends on a positive. Kyle explains the purpose of each exercise. He varies workouts to keep them interesting, which is not necessary because an hour session goes by quickly with Kyle. I joined the Center last year. I was recently retired, out of shape, and overwhelmed about how to change. Thanks to Kyle’s guidance, I am closer to achieving my goals. I lost weight and inches, and gained muscles, energy, and confidence. I increased my strength and endurance while improving balance, coordination, and flexibility. I feel better than I have in years. I think Kyle is as vested in my success as I am! I look forward to continuing our training.
