Jason Lapiana

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.

Kyler James

Kyler has been a teacher for several years and has a deep passion for helping people reach their goals. While Kyler has abundant in-depth experience with practically all conventional forms of strength training, his own style is highly progressive. 

Not being a “purist”, his approach embraces all modes and means of increasing health and fitness. His primary goal when training clients is essentially to “bullet-proof” the spine and articulations throughout the body and to forge a material foundation of functional strength via intelligent exercise selection and a common sense nutritional plan. 

His belief is that striving for aesthetics in a manner that is divorced from proper movement mechanics is one of the best ways of creating a physically frail and dysfunctional human. Drawing inspiration from multiple disciplines, the content of his programming emphasizes basic locomotion patterns, compound movements, and the application of these in non-linear “open” scenarios.
