Kyle’s Philosophy – “Here at Synergy Sports Performance, l share some core values with all of our other trainers. We believe that each individual person is different, and that means they each need a customized program to fit their needs. We believe in building character through pushing athletes harder than they have ever been pushed before in order to help them develop physical and mental strength. My personal belief is that each football player needs to be evaluated on his strengths and weaknesses in order for a customized program to be built around those strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to use my college as well as NFL knowledge and experience to help turn my clients into the best athletes they can be physically AND mentally.”
