For almost two decades, Keith has trained athletes from youth to the professional level. Being a three sport athlete himself, Keith went on to earn a full athletic scholarship to play division 1 college football. Keith holds a Masters of Science degree in Kinesiology and is currently working on his PhD in Health & Human Performance. Constantly striving for new knowledge, growth, and cutting edge methodology.
Keith believes that the psychology of sport is as important as the physical aspects. His unique approach prepares athletes to perform both mentally and physically as they strive towards personal goals. There are those trainers that know what is supposed to be done, those that know how to motivate, and those that know how to teach. Keith's ability to apply all three of these disciplines brings the best out of every athlete.
We're absolutely certain that you'll discover, in your first session, his knowledge of speed development and the science of how it is applied is completely unique in the industry.
"I know first hand what it takes to be an elite athlete. It's not just physical preparation, but mental preparation as well. I spent the better part of my athletic career being told that I was too small and could not play at the next level. My desire and drive is what earned me an opportunity to have my college sports and education paid for. My passion is to teach athletes what it will take to be successful both mentally and physically. At QUEST Speed, I am honest, real, and demanding but that is because I consider every athlete that trains here as part of my family. There is no better feeling than knowing that we may have played a small part in helping an athlete achieve their dream."
