Jason is a teacher of physical development and movement practitioner. He earned his B.S. from the University of South Florida in Exercise Science and is currently pursuing a masters degree in Nutrition.
From a young age,Jason took interest in many sports which kept perpetually moving. Just as the body craves a wide variety of nutrients from food it also craves a wide variety of movements for optimal function.
His training system is one of a generalist background, taking aspects of various specialized disciplines such as martial arts, gymnastics, calisthenics, strength training, and dance to provide clients with the essential tools to build a strong, resilient and bendy body.
He believes, and implements well, in taking a playful yet focused approach to fitness. Physical play is something as adults we loose touch with, come. A well rounded training regiment should include a synergistic balance of play and structure.

Dawson Burke (Currently on leave @ SF Selection)
Dawson is a competitor through and through! His primary background is in the strength and conditioning field.
Kyler is an avid researcher, and zealous practitioner of movement. His goals are to facilitate growth through
movement and provide people with the knowledge and tools they need to become autonomous as movers
who can explore and create within their own practice.
At the age of 15, Kyler began lifting weights in his fathers garage and educating himself about strength training.
In 2018 he was introduced by a friend to the work of Ido Portal whose movement philosophy deeply resonated with him. This event led him to expand his physical practice. He began to study movement widely; capoeira, kung fu, contemporary dance, tumbling—while maintaining his strength base. Creating a unique synthesis of pedagogical material which he passes on to his students, he seeks to continually grow from observations in his own practice and his teachers.
Kyler received his Certified Personal Trainer through the ISSA in 2017 and has been coaching since. Some of his interests currently include tricking, barbell cleans, gymnastic rings, handstands, rock climbing, free running and salsa dancing.
My name is Jesse Lapiana. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from FGCU (yes Dunk City!). I’m a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
Most notably, I’ve worked for the Boston Red Sox as a Minor League Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Lowell Spinners. There, I was in charge of improving athletic performances through intelligently designed workouts, daily corrective mobility exercises, and strict nutrition guidelines.
I was assisted by athletic trainers, baseball coaches, and mental skills coaches for the sole purpose of improving the performances of these potential “Big Leaguers”. I was offered a full-time position with the ball club but declined as I had a bigger vision in mind. I wanted to bring what I had applied to professional athletes to the young athletes!
I’ve spent the past 2 years in New York where I have worked with hundreds of young athletes! I decided to move to Florida in November 2020 to work with young athletes in the sunshine state.
