Brian Krupke

Personal Trainer | Instructor

About me

My interest in health and human movement started as a kid carrying stones, flipping tires, and throwing hay bales on the family farm in northeastern Washington. Lifting weights in the shed and hiking around the countryside turned into training for high level competition in ice-hockey and CrossFit as well as participation in multiple other sports like baseball, football, MMA, basketball, tennis, and, of course, rock climbing. I believe that all humans should be able to push, pull, squat, hinge, twist, and
propel themselves, without pain and with a purpose. The dosage may differ from person-to-person but the necessity of quality movement patterns is universal for everyone and yields results no matter what the goal. My knowledge of anatomy and physiology paired with 10+ years of training and coaching clients from a wide spectrum of ability levels makes me capable of creating a specifically tailored plan for any individual with any training goal.

Be prepared to enjoy yourself during each training session and leave knowing a little bit more about yourself and the human body.
