Kenny has been my coach for the better part of 4 years now and I can honestly say our work together has been nothing short of remarkable.  I've been competing as an athlete for my entire life, but Kenny has taken me to another level.  By combining his vast experience with and knowledge of human movement and physiology, with an approach that emphasizes connection between body and mind, I am accomplishing things I never thought possible.  If you want to have a strong body and a stronger mind, not to mention a lot of fun, Kenny is your guy.
