Kyle "Coast" Kilroy

Co-Founder & Head of Human Performance

Kyle is a California native who pretends to be a pilot in the Army, but really commands a desk. He has a wife, an amazing baby boy, and plans to make a transition out of the Army to continue pursuing his dream of flight in the U.S. Coast Guard. He slays weights in the gym from time to time and loves to give out bad advice to fellow gym rats. He can be found in the squat rack yelling obscenities or in the sky chasing tail winds and blue skies.
