Meet the Trainers
Our trainers bring years of experience from multiple disciplines.
…With CrossFit I don’t feel like I need to think too hard about whether I’m progressing; it just happens.Rod Wada,
I had a heart attack in September 2011. Two years later, I started searching for a personal trainer or small gym. I'd gotten tired of just walking, and 24-hr clubs didn't work because I didn't know enough about fitness. I found and visited CrossFit Kindred in December 2013. I told myself I’d just commit to 3 days a week and see what happened. It turns out, I did better than I thought I would. Doing the “Baseline” workout on my first day, and then as early as 3 weeks later, I noticed an improvement in how I did, and how I felt. I got a blood test recently, and all my numbers improved and are now at or below the maximum healthy range. I also went from being on 2 medications to just taking vitamins. When I started, I couldn’t even walk 400 meters, let alone run it! Now, during CrossFit workouts, I can do the whole run without stopping. The funny part is, with CrossFit I don’t feel like I need to think too hard about whether I’m progressing; it just happens. Part of why I wanted to do CrossFit was because I had a grandson on the way, and I knew it was going to take a lot of energy to spend time with him. Now I do have more energy for him.
Feeling healthy and strong, especially as a woman, is a huge confidence-builder.Peggy Galdamez,
It’s a form of exercise like none other. I’ve never experienced something quite as intense. I’ve done circuit training at the gym before, but it was nothing like this. As someone who’d gone from being very physically active to doing nothing for 4 years, CrossFit was a shock to my system. But it was a challenge that I welcomed and appreciated. I enjoyed all the different movements, and always felt like I was learning something new and being pushed forward. I have more energy now, and I sleep really well at night. Feeling healthy and strong, especially as a woman, is a huge confidence-builder. I want to have a long healthy quality of life for myself and for my family, and I feel like I’m building that every time I come here. And having the support of the coaches and people around us, we’ve started some really nice friendships with people here. As an adult, you don’t really have time to hang out and meet new people. You’ve got your own lives professionally, you have kids, but this group of people welcomed us, and we really appreciate the community that we have here.
I have the greatest coach, and support from the Kindred family.Becky Pichardo,
I started this journey with my sister Terry and her girls...the CrossFit journey, that is. I have lost 25 lbs to date after three months! I am so jazzed, so sore, and so blessed to be part of a great box. I have the greatest coach, and support from the Kindred family. I cannot wait for the next three months, and for the rest of my life. Thank you all at the box for all your support and cheers when this old lady can’t move, or says "I can’t do that!"
Throughout my years of working out, this has been the first time ever that I have been able to do back squats with perfect form.Angelo K.,
I began working out at CrossFit Kindred in October of 2011 with Jeff Muya. I appreciate his involvement in my training and value the skills that he brings to each training session. Jeff’s training philosophy is getting back to the basics. Throughout my years of working out, this has been the first time ever that I have been able to do back squats with perfect form. I highly recommend CrossFit Kindred to anyone looking for a family oriented gym that has a dedicated, motivating and friendly community to get in shape with.
I have learned to LOVE the muscle that I now have.Mayra Zavala,
You both made a big impact in my life. Because of your constant support, encouragement, and the community you guys have created at the box, I have learned to LOVE the muscle that I now have.... I was even able to carry heavy boxes, a vacuum, and even a dolly up and down the stairs while moving. That is something I could not do before. :) Thank you Jeff and Cindy for being awesome coaches!
I am working out consistently for longer than I ever have in my life.Ben H.,
I have been a member of this community for seven months now. I am working out consistently for longer than I ever have in my life. I owe this to Kindred. When you come in for the first time you will be greeted by everyone. When you leave, everyone will say goodbye. It's the little things like these that make this place my second home. You will get stronger and you will live a healthier lifestyle after working out here.
CFK is a tight community with people who genuinely care about you safety, progression, and your short and long term goals.Amanda R.,
My sister is a huge CrossFitter and told me about CrossFit Kindred. I signed up for a consultation and decided to join the minute I arrived. From the get go everyone (coaches and gym goers) were all very warm and welcoming and that's what got me to sign up and that's what will keep me. CFK is a tight community with people who genuinely care about you safety, progression, and your short and long term goals. I've found the workouts to be fun and I'm pretty addicted to the results.
I used to think that CrossFit was too intense and would never want to try it. This place changed that mindset.Patrick N.,
I used to think that CrossFit was too intense and would never want to try it. This place changed that mindset. The owners, Cindy and Jeff are warm and welcoming and build a strong community. It's a very small box (gym) which makes it great because of the close attention you get from the coaches. I've learnt a lot about proper form and have gotten much stronger. I highly recommend this place if you are new to CrossFit.
They have built a safe place for anyone of any fitness level to feel they can conquer any workout and feel accomplished.Annie N.,
It's a small gym but it packs a big hearted community. The coaches, Jeff and Cindy, are awesome. I had this image of drill sargents barking orders at me and belittling me. They have built a safe place for anyone of any fitness level to feel they can conquer any workout and feel accomplished. The people I've met here have been awesome as well. Everyone is helpful and everyone is rooting for you to finish strong.
CrossFitting at Kindred has helped me discover the mental toughness I’ve kept hidden, and now I take that mentality wherever I go.Alyssa Ablaza,
Took me about a day to get over the initial shock of my first workout, and that’s when I realized that what I was doing was challenging myself, both physically and mentally. Something I rarely allowed to happen at the same time. That was me leaping out of my comfort zone and doing what my mind told me I couldn’t. My whole life I’ve kept to myself and played it safe all because I was afraid of what I was truly capable of. Being at Kindred, however, has showed me the absolute wonders of taking chances. I don’t hold back anymore. CrossFitting at Kindred has helped me discover the mental toughness I’ve kept hidden, and now I take that mentality wherever I go.
