Our Personal Training Staff

Kyle Hyde
Fitness Director
CrossFit L-1 Trainer
Functional Movement Specialist

My Personal Training and Group Fitness philosophy is based on positive energy, intensity and having fun. I help my clients and class participants incorporate health and fitness into their individual lives, and teach them how to exercise correctly to build self-confidence in and out of the gym. As a former recreational and competitive bodybuilder I always based my own training regimen only on building muscle and burning fat, never truly focusing on the power of functional movements and mobility. In 2012 I was introduced to Hard-Style Kettlebell training and CrossFit and my love of fitness was reinvigorated. I learned quickly that true fitness is not what you see in the mirror, but mentally and physically feeling your best as a result of the effort you put in, everyday. I dedicate my coaching to help others achieve the same, everyday!

“I can’t stress the importance of strength training for improving performance, self-confidence and one’s quality of life. My main goal is to create effective exercise routines that compliment an individual’s hectic lifestyle. With my help you will improve your overall fitness, sports performance and self image.”

Paige Dumler
NASM Certified Personal Trainer

My passion for healthy living sprouted from my own personal battles with nutrition and exercise. After an injury I incurred through running, I once and for all discovered the importance of form and function, and that proper nutrition is crucial to reaching any goal.

Building a strong and stable base to condition and strength train from is key no matter your goals. I believe that a step up approach through stabilization, strength and power yield the best, and most long lasting results. The benefits of physical health are immeasurable- mentally, emotionally and financially.

“Living an active healthy lifestyle has always been an important personal goal. In my 30’s, life as a full-time mom provided the greatest challenges to that healthy lifestyle with significant weight gain and indications that I was pre-diabetic. Fortunately my 40’s have been transformational. Not only have I learned to pay more attention, once again, to the needs of my body and mind but I have discovered a passion to work with others to improve their quality of life through personal training and group fitness instruction.

My focus as a personal trainer is to develop a balanced program that is fun, flexible and goal oriented. Whether you need greater balance and stability, a structured post-rehab program or need to make positive lifestyle changes, I would love to help you reach your goals!”

Kathryn Lehner
NASM Certified Personal Trainer
TRX Level 1 Certified

The path to self-confidence is paved by exercise, fitness, and a healthy lifestyle. My goal is to help you feel great in your own skin. With sixteen years of competitive swimming, multiple triathlons, quality time in the physical therapy field, and a photographer’s eye for detail, my life experiences have made me realize the importance of proper form and function. My training style involves educating clients as I guide them through proper stabilization, strength and power. When I’m not at the gym you can find me planning my next cycling adventure, heading into the mountains with friends, connecting with family or scouring the farmer’s market for fresh food. My goal is to make my passion for health and wellness contagious so you feel excited and happy with your fitness results!

I am a Ballard native and started my passion for health & fitness years ago by focusing on my own goals and knowing that I want to live a healthy, fulfilling life.

My focus as a trainer and instructor is to help people by assessing their fitness goals & daily lifestyle. I will help them accomplish these goals through functional training with strength, cardio and total body exercises. I like to help people with proper form to get the full benefit of each exercise. I enjoy working with women in particular who may not have the knowledge about strength training but want to learn more about it and how it can help them become stronger, improve performance and feel good about themselves.

I want to help people find the same happiness and self-confidence that I have found and enjoy, by being the healthiest person they can be for years to come.

“Having a strong background in biological sciences made me realize the importance of the human body, and how fitness and nutrition play a vital role in our lives. This became more evident after becoming a mother when your health, self-esteem and energy levels are important, not only for yourself but for those around you. My aim as a personal trainer is based on building your body and confidence by encompassing strength training, cardio and full body workouts that are based on the principle of stabilization, strength and power”

Eric Hanson

I have always had a love of sports and competed in everything from golf to basketball while I was growing up. In high school I was a track and field athlete competing at the varsity level for four years in shot put and discus.

I continued weight training throughout college, but after graduating and accepting a corporate job, I gained over fifty pounds. After losing the weight and getting back in shape, I became deeply passionate about health and fitness and dedicated my professional life to helping others of all ages and abilities achieve their fitness goals.

I attended National Personal Training Institute before earning my CSCS certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and have been training professionally for the last three years. I am excited to work with members of the OAC, and love building unique programs help every individual achieve their goals.

I specialize in:
  • Fat loss/body composition
  • Sports performance and conditioning
  • Corrective exercise and self-myofascial release
  • Strength training
  • Hypertrophy (muscle building)

Fitness has a been a big part of my life since I was a child. Growing up I studied martial arts and played organized sports. Obtaining a sports related injury in college and having to go through my own rehabilitation, I decided to attain a degree in Kinesiology. This education is where I learned the amazing ability of the musculoskeletal system and how important proper body mechanics are to overcoming injuries and improving performance. My training philosophy is to provide my clients with the knowledge they need to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. I want you to be ready for the activities you love to do, be it competing in a sport at a high level or just being able get out for a hike with your friends. Whatever your goals are, I will help you achieve them

I believe that physical activity is one of the best investments that we can make with our time.
Very few activities in our day to day lives can bring us such pleasure and fulfillment as moving
our bodies. I apply this philosophy to my training as I strive to help people of all fitness levels
improve their ability to use their bodies to their maximum potential. I will listen to your goals and
your concerns carefully and use those to foster a training environment in which you feel excited,
challenged and rewarded.
