More About Coach Michael

I have experience coaching athletes at the highest collegiate level down to the youth level. I am currently the Head Jumps Coach at St. Ignatius College Prep in San Francisco. After competing at the Division 1 level, I took my knowledge and transitioned into coaching at the high school level. In the time since, I have continued my work with these high school athletes and also added experience working with Division 1 sprinters/jumpers as well as youth athletes just beginning in the sport. I have learned from some of the best minds in Track and Field, including Olympic level coaches, and use that knowledge with my athletes. In the past 4 years, my long jumpers alone have accounted for over 30 League medals, 9 Section medals, and 2 State Medals.

I competed at the Division 1 level at the University of California, Irvine. At Irvine, I was a long jumper and short sprinter (100, 200, 4x100). I was a 2x team captain and an All-Big West Scholar-Athlete in 2012, 2013, and 2014. I graduated UC Irvine in 2014 with the 6th best 100 meter time in School History, running a PR of 10.63. Prior to Irvine, I was a two-time CA State Meet competitor, finishing 8th in the State in Long Jump in 2010, with a high school PR of 23' 1."

I customize my training programs for each of my athletes given their age, level, skill set and goals. I find it vital to get to know my athletes and communicate what it is they want to improve upon. I can then put together a training plan using their feedback and my knowledge of the sport and its required training. Among other things, I specialize in sprinting mechanics, top end speed, speed endurance, explosiveness, jumping ability, core, and overall strength & conditioning training. Each client session is different and varies given their preferences and skill level. My philosophy revolves around setting a strong foundation before moving on to more complex concepts.

Client Reviews

Coach Kennedy was instrumental in my development as an athlete and is the best coach I've ever had. I worked with him non stop for a year and went from jumping 21ft to 25ft. Working with him enabled me to finish 2nd in the State my senior year and receive an athletic scholarship to UCLA.
Coach Kennedy is a great coach who has a proven record of success. His knowledge of athletic training is second to none and his level of commitment and communication set him apart. He is able to get the best out of each athlete he works with.
