Introducing James Kiel-Los Gatos Boot Camp Instructor

I’m excited to introduce one of the newest members of the lifeSport Fitness team, James Kiel.

James is the Head Coach of our Campbell evening boot camp (May through October) and our Los Gatos evening boot camp  (October through April).  James has been a fitness professional for 6 years and has experience at both the High School and College level as a Strength and Conditioning Coach.

By day, James is a Business Analyst at Stanford Medical Clinic.  In the evening, James gets to make use of his degree in Kinesiology and his passion for helping people stay fit by leading our fun, fast paced boot camps. A former Division 1 football player, James is no stranger to tough workouts.  But don’t let the tough football player exterior fool you, James is a warm and caring fitness professional who has what it takes to push our hardcore exercisers to new levels of fitness, while making our newbies feel welcome with his quit wit and attention to detail on proper exercise form.

One of the neat things about our Los Gatos boot camp location is that we have the ability to work out indoors when it’s cold and dark outside–so you don’t have to get wet while you work out!  If you’d like to experience a fun, fast paced workout on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, please go to our Los Gatos and Campbell boot camp webpage and sign up for a FREE trial week at James’ class!

Committed to your success,
