More About Coach Kendall

I have been coaching youth and high school athletes for the past 3 years as a coach for LeapFrog Sports, as well as UCLA track and field, where I was a volunteer assistant coach for the last 2 years. I am beginning my first year as a Volunteer Assistant Coach at Rice University in Houston, Texas. I am a USATF Level 1 Certified coach, and registered with SafeSport and USA track and field.

I am currently a professional heptathlete training for the 2021 Olympics. In 2019 I was the number 7 heptathlete in the United States, and qualified to represent Team USA in the Thorpe Cup in Germany. I competed in track and field at UCLA, where I was a Division 1 All-American in the heptathlon. I am the UCLA school record holder in the indoor pentathlon, and on the top-ten list in the heptathlon (2), javelin (5) and indoor high jump (9).

I begin with an evaluation of the athlete and their level of expertise/fitness. From there, I focus on specific technical work for whatever event we are working on, as well as conditioning to improve overall fitness levels. I have experience in a wide variety of events, and am willing to work with athletes who are already competing at a high level, or are looking to learn a new event.

Client Reviews

Great insight, easy to talk, obviously very talented. We can see her being a fantastic resource on the track and off. We are excited to see where she can help take our daughter.

Kendall is the best! I highly recommend.

Kendall is a great coach. She's solid when covering the fundamentals and was then able to push my technique to just beyond the limit of my skill level. Highly recommend!

We've only had one session so far, but will be buying more! She was great with my 10 year old and offered lots of fantastic advice in the very first session. We feel lucky to have found her.

Great with young people

Coach Kendall motivates and works great with all levels of fitness!! She has a great disposition with kids and gets them moving even if they’re not in the greatest shape.

Thanks so much for working with my son. He took away from great new skills. He's looking forward to more training.

Friendly and super helpful. Definitely recommend.

Coach Kendall brings both knowledge and positive energy to working with high school athletes. She has coached my daughter in shot put as well as one of the athletes on the team I coach in long jump, and both really looked forward to their next session. I highly recommend her!

Kendall s been a great support with my daughter. I think she is really psyched up for her event this weekend!

Coach Kendall was amazing my daughter Janessa on her 1st workout. Shes dedicated. Thorough. My daughter loved it.
She look forward to continuing to work with her.

Kendall has been my training partner at UCLA since 2016. It was so helpful having her as a training partner in college since I was previously a 400m runner and triple jumper turned heptathlete by the time I got to UCLA. She made the learning process so much easier and was able to add to what the coaches were teaching me. I was very impressed with how well she knew how to do the events from sprints, hurdles, jumps to throws-It was clear she had years of experience in those events since a young age. Beyond all the technical help or pushing me run through the line on that last 200m repeat at practice together, she has always been an amazing support system. She truly knows how to fully make athletes better: physically, mentally and emotionally. I think everyone on the team could agree Kendall always has a positive and encouraging spirit on the track and has never backed down from a challenge.
