Kyle Paton
Level 2 Coach

A former college athlete, powerlifting medalist, and current lead programmer for our kettlebell work, Kyle’s soft spoken demeanor is rivaled only by his intense inner drive to be the best he can be. If something is worth pursuing, it’s worth pursuing excellence in it. This is a basic philosophy that drives Kyle’s actions inside the gym and out, and a lesson he imparts on everyone that he coaches. Kyle is humble, a relentlessly hard worker and an obsessive learner who craves constant betterment in what he knows, and how he can expose greatness in others.
