The Founders

living and training from a holistic perspective 


Coach KG



• Enhanced Sports + Life Performance 

• Mental Fitness + Mindful Movement 

• Holistic Wellness + Healing 


With over a decade of experience as an NASM Certified Personal Trainer (2011) and Group Fitness Instructor & Coach specializing in:

  • Holistic Training Methods  

  • Strength & Conditioning

  • Sports Performance  

  • Dance, Yoga & Mobility 

The foundation of my personal fitness journey began with dance and running track; and has taken me from CA, to Peru, Argentina, Brazil, and eventually to NYC - where I have now coached thousands of group fitness classes and trained hundreds of clients over the past 7 years. 


My focus and passion in the fitness industry shifted when I was introduced to weights + strength training + functional movement + mindfulness; falling in love with feeling both mentally + physically stronger, and knowing I wanted to support others in doing the same. 


I am committed to helping people fuel their instinctual desire to take care of themselves and thrive while developing their own skills + strengths, not only in fitness and training, but in all aspects of their lives.


Bilingual English + Spanish and conversational in Portuguese with 4 years of international work experience and relationship-building in local communities as well as coaching & instructing in Spanish.

Commitment + Strategy

  • Strength + Conditioning

  • Sports Performance

  • Speed, Agility + Footwork

  • Plant-Based Athlete 

With a specialization in strength & conditioning, agility training, footwork, speed, & mental performance - my goal is to help you feel & move your best.

My experience comes from a decade as semi-pro football player with the New York Gators and the New York Bandits, but my love for sports, optimal performance + pushing my limits came long before that. 

As a plant-based athlete for 6+ years, I want to show you what is possible when you shift your perspective about the way you view food, as well as help you achieve results that make you feel better and perform better in all aspects of your life. 

Performance Training has helped me mentally - to challenge myself and push harder than I ever knew I could.

With the right combination of commitment + strategy you can adapt to whatever performance challenges come your way.
