Head coach, Owner
Kyle Spears found CrossFit while serving in the United States Marine Corps. After his service he began coaching group classes and while doing so, found a love for coaching. This passion lead him to further his coaching education, begin individualized programming, and eventually work and mentor at Training Think Tank.
Kyle has over 5 years of experience with individualized programming. His clients diversity spans from those who are staying in shape to the competitive CrossFit athlete, field sport athletes, and even coaches needing a mentor. Spears has helped multiple people from all walks of life reach their fitness goals.
is an experienced strength athlete and coach who grew up playing baseball and basketball, and has competed in a variety of strength sports including highland games, Crossfit, and powerlifting.
Kegan was deployed in the 82nd Airborne shortly after graduating from Springfield College in Massachusetts with a degree in Business Management. He played rugby and basketball throughout college.
After four years on deployment, Kegan's military career came to an abrupt end due to internal injuries suffered during a training exercise that resulted in nerve damage in his right leg and which he spent the following year extensively rehabilitating. After making a full recovery, he decided to try Crossfit in an effort to get back in shape.
Kegan quickly discovered that his large frame was not well suited to such dynamic and endurance-heavy workouts, and refocused his training efforts on highland games and, most recently, powerlifting. Throughout this transformational process in Kegan's training career, he moved across the country and trained with the best coaches he could find, absorbing all of the knowledge that he could from each of them. His most recent lifting accomplishment is a 500 pound bench press.
Kegan's ability to clearly and creatively convey and implement the training knowledge he has gleaned from his mentors has earned him the opportunity to train high-level Crossfit Games and Regional competitors. While he finds any opportunity to help an individual reach their goals rewarding, he perhaps most prides himself on being able to do so with aspiring youth athletes. He believes that the clients he works with are to be treated and respected as individual human beings, and not faceless numbers in an accounting ledger.
