More About Coach Kevin

I am a NSCA-CPT, NASM-CES, and USA Track and Field Level 1 & 2 Coach. I have trained middle and high school athletes in speed in agility for 7 years in sports such as football, track, soccer, baseball, and basketball.

I was the 2007 AAU Junior Olympic bronze medalist in the long jump. I still compete in track and field and football recreationally in the Austin area.

Sessions last 60-90 minutes depending on the athlete's age and experience. Our training session will include a 15-30 minutes warmup focused on mobility, stability, and movement proficiency. After the warmup, we begin the power development component which will consist of plyometric techniques ranging from jumps training to throws to develop the athlete's explosiveness. After developing the athletes power and force output, we move into the speed component that focuses on acceleration development, max velocity mechanics, and agility/change of direction technique.

Client Reviews

Coach Kevin did a great job working with my son on High Jump. He was there early and all set up when we arrived. Jack increased his personal best by two inches after just one session. We were VERY pleased!!

Our daughter (S) can be very shy... across the board. She can be especially "man-shy." Kevin was absolutely amazing! He connected immediately. He was on time, totally prepared, clearly knows his craft and was simply a pleasure to work with. S engaged with Kevin in her first session more than she has with people she has known and worked with longer. I booked our next session before her first session was complete. With our recent move, we are delighted to have found a great coach and look forward to a long-term relationship with him. Thanks Kevin - YOU ROCK!

Coach Kevin is a great coach. He’s coaching my 11 year old son and 8 year old daughter in sprinting. Both kids are on a track team. After only one session my lil athletes have started integrating techniques they’ve learned from Coach Kevin

Coach Kevin was wonderful for my daughter! He focused specifically on her track events: hurdles, triple jump, and mile relay. He gave great advice and helped advise her through her training with a torn hamstring on the mend. We couldn’t have been more pleased! It was worth our drive from West TX over Spring Break. We will be forever thankful that CoachUp matched Kevin with us.

Coach Kevin was fantastic. My 10 yr old son is an avid soccer player so I scheduled a session to help him improve his sprinting speed. In one session my son learned techniques that we believe will get him on his way to becoming a much faster player.

Thanks Coach Kevin!!

My son just started playing on a new really good soccer team, and it was evident that he needed to become quicker, so we looked for a coach to teach him to run properly.
My son and I really liked Kevin. He's very friendly and made the session fun for my son, while really making him work and making sure my son understood the fundamentals. He was well prepared and the lesson was flowing fast, with a lot of variety to keep it interesting for a young person. He told me that he will tailor the coming lessons toward more soccer specific running. I like that he is knowledgeable enough to coach a lot of different areas.
After the lesson Kevin was patiently answering all the questions I had and gave us feedback on what especially to work on and what to think about. I would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone interested in becoming faster.

Coach Kevin is an excellent. He breaks each step down so it's easy to understand. I've only had two sessions and I've learned so many techniques to help me improve in sprinting and high jump.

What a great first session! My son really enjoyed his first training session and opened up to Coach Kevin immediately. He's really looking forward to the next one!

Look no further...excellent Coach! Had my son train with him specifically to work on his triple jump. After the very first session, my son felt he learned so much. Coach Kevin is professional, courteous, experienced, and knowledgeable! He took my son through a warm up, several drills, and technique for the triple jump. Was able to analize every part of his jump and instruct him properly. Definitely pleased with what we have seen so far and confident in Coach Kevin's methods and ability to coach our son. He is also quick to respond and flexible with scheduling. I definitely recommend Coach Kevin!

Very impressed with Coach Kevin. I went in with expectations of a lot of talk but incapable of backing it up. I was very unprepared for the session Coach Kevin had in store for my son. He was very professional, prepared and most important knowledgeable and obviously experienced. There was not one tedious moment from the very beginning to the very end.
My son said " I learned so much today. I didn't realize how much I didn't know as an experienced runner . I'm excited about continuing to work with him."
So far on a scale of 0 to 10 I rate him a 10.
