Speed, Strength, and Character Development

At Strive, we deliver excellent results in improving an athletes’ speed, strength, and agility, helping them succeed on game day.

However, our mission does not end there.

Strive is a place where young individuals can develop self-confidence, a strong work-ethic, accountability, and independence rooted in learning to want to achieve success not because their parents, teachers, or coaches tell them to, but because they want to achieve it for themselves.

I want every athlete who comes to Strive to leave here one day with a love for physical fitness, healthy lifestyle habits, and a strong mind-set that will allow them to achieve success throughout their entire lives.


“I came to Strive because it is a great workout and I wanted to improve my 60 (yard dash) time and get stronger. I gained 15 pounds within my first 4 months and lowered my 60 time .3 seconds from a 6.7 to a 6.4.”

Jordan Ramey, UC Baseball

“Strive Training is amazing! Kyle is an amazing trainer and there's not a day where I don't wanna be at Strive. It's so enjoyable! I've never had so much fun working out and getting stronger. Ever since I came to Strive, I've noticed the speed difference in my pitching! Thank you Kyle for everything you've been helping me with!”

Tayler Clark, Softball

"I have really wanted to thank you for all the time you have put into me for training. Today for my freshman workout at Lakota West, I bench pressed 105 11 times and I could've gotten a lot more as it was easy. The second most somebody got, including lineman, was 55 pounds. I could've put the 45s on. I just wanted to say thank you for all the support and help and I have no doubt that I can keep getting stronger and stronger to be the best and have gained so much in just about two months"

Ryland Chaney, Football

"We have traveled all over the country and wrestled many of the best wrestlers and every time I speak with one of the other coaches or parents they always seem to mention how strong my son is and they have never had their wrestler moved around like that. I solely believe the training we have done at Strive has made the difference and put Kane on the top of the podium."

Kyle Shawger, Father of Kane, Wrestling

“After only 5 weeks of training I was able to beat out a bunt which I don't think I've ever been able to do. Even my coaches have noticed an increase in my home to first sprinting speed.”

Chelsey Braunwart, Softball

“I noticed more velocity within a month of Strive. It’s really a blessing. I didn't make the Varsity team my freshman year in High School, I went to Strive Training, worked really hard, and made the Varsity team the next year. Now I am playing in college!”

Mike Kelly, Shenandoah University Baseball

"I have seen dramatic increase in strength and endurance in the past 2 months. I never expected to see it so quick and so evident. My son loves to go to the sessions with Kyle. Kyle makes them fun while pushing the athletes to give it their all and every time we get in the car my son asks when is the next session."

Jim Mitchell, Father of Evan Mitchell

"Kyle does a great job with our 12 year old son Ethan. He has really grown tremendously in strength but also in speed. He recently cut his 5k time from 26:30 to 24:10 in less than two months. Kyle had a lot to do with that. My son enjoys coming to Strive and I believe Kyle does things the right way. It is important to make sure you have proper technique when building strength. Especially at this age. Kyle changes things up to work the whole body (strength, core, speed etc.) and also to keeps it fun for the athletes. I can often here him pushing the kids in a firm but respectful way. It is easy to yell at kids and get some short term gains but much better in my opinion to push them in a way they respect but also keeps them wanting to come back for more."

Michael Pickens, Father of Ethan

"Kyle is a great trainer and an all out great guy. He is very helpful and I am very glad to have him as my trainer. I recommend you to go to Strive!!!"

Jaden Perkins, Hockey

"Kyle is the most motivational trainer. He always pushes me to do my best. Strive training is amazing!"

Owen Gerke, Hockey

"I started going to Strive when I was twelve and I weighed nearly 180 pounds, but since going to Strive I (dropped to) 150 pounds and can lift weights, run farther, and jump rope better than I ever could have imagined. It's great location and owner allows for me and other people to have fun while achieving great success in our muscles as well as our brains."

Blake Richards

"Kyle is awesome. It's always been a blast working out at Strive!! I enjoy it every day."

Tristen Melvin, Football and Baseball

"I have had many of my HS athletes train with Kyle over the years. I have seen nothing but positive results. Not just physical results but I have seen the athletes develop a stronger work ethic and a greater sense of dedication. I have recently had a lot of my summer baseball athletes begin working with Kyle. They have all enjoyed working with Kyle and all are getting stronger and faster but are also developing more confidence. My own sons are working with Kyle and they both think very highly of him."

Chris Fiehrer, Father of Cooper and Spencer

“Kyle is an amazing trainer. He has made me grow so much and become a lot stronger”

Jaxson Perkins, Hockey

“Kyle is an awesome coach. I have known him for a while and I know he is my favorite coach ever.”
