Kyle Smith, ISSA certified Personal Trainer

He can professionally guide you not only with your weight training or cardiovascular regimen, making you more muscular and fit. But, he can also utilize his nutrition knowledge in helping you get lean as well.

Kyle’s unique background filled him with experiences that he can leverage to help you achieve your own fitness goals. He began lifting weights and hiking with his Marine father when he was just 4 years old. The following year, Kyle found a passion for wrestling and became one of Wisconsin’s elite wrestlers, earning both state and national wrestling titles. Meanwhile, his Portuguese mother taught him the importance of utilizing proper nutrition to maintain his powerful physique.

On November 4, 2017, Kyle participated in the Vermont Power Lifting Competition “Old School Iron Wars.” At this event, he took the overall champion with a total weight lifted 1,587.32 pounds. Individual lifts were Squat: 551.15, Bench: 496.05, Deadlift: 540.13.

Continuing his Power Lifting career, Kyle traveled to Dayton, Ohio to compete in the IPL Midwest Open on October 27, 2018. At this event, he upped his numbers significantly with dedicated training and working with a power lifting coach. Kyle earned 2 WORLD RECORDS. Lift amounts were: Squat: 650, Bench: 512 (World record for Junior 275 weight class), Deadlift: 650, 3 lift Total: 1812 (World Record for Junior 275 weight class) At Kyle’s latest meet in December 2019, Kyle upped his numbers with a 727 squat and 670 deadlift.  He hopes to advance his Power Lifting career over the years. Having a trainer who pushes himself as hard as Kyle guarantees he will research YOUR needs to create the best workout for you.

Kyle has also competed in bodybuilding in the physique category. When preparing for his first bodybuilding show, he began meal planning for himself. He creates delicious, nutritionally sound meals based upon total daily energy expenditure and figuring out macro-nutrients required. Kyle can assist you in helping to create a sustainable meal plan to achieve your fitness goals.

Kyle works with each individual’s base line health and works towards goals in a motivating, safe manner. He wants to share and promote a healthy lifestyle, positive change, and self confidence due to his lifelong commitment to his own health, physique, power, and strength.

Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present. We cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.

  2. Sign in at with the sheet provided by the front door for contact tracing. If you prefer another method, please text 414-312-1444 or email us at so we have a record.
  3. We recommend wearing a mask until you can get set in your own workout station. Masks are then completely up to you, as we don’t want anything to interfere with your ability to breathe while working out hard. But, please be mindful of the direction of your breathing. Also wear one when you are closer than 6 feet from other people, such as when spotting. 
  4. Members will obtain individual disinfectant spray bottles and microfiber towels for the duration of the workout. You will see the “Clean” and “Dirty” bins for the towels. These are mandatory for before and after touching every surface. You will see multiple signs regarding these regulations in every room of the gym. Hand sanitizer is provided in every room of the gym.  
  5. Socially distance yourself from others while working out. We will block off every other piece of cardio to help you distance yourself easily. Please maintain 6 foot distance while working out. We will limit the amount of people to 16 at a time. This is in accordance with the State of Vermont’s current mandates of 1 person per 200 square feet. We will try to have windows open as much as we can to help disperse particulate matter unless it is windy.
