My name is Kyle Long, and I am a certified personal trainer located in Chicago, IL. I would like to give you a brief biography of myself, to allow a better understanding of my background, and how my life has been influenced by health and fitness! I was born and raised in Central Ohio in an extremely small town. My parents were both very successful athletes, my dad a national caliber runner and my mom swam in the Olympic trials, and thus I was born into a very active life. As a child I played a wide variety of sports, and eventually found my passion in soccer. During my teens, I won several state championships, played semi-professional soccer with the Cincinnati Kings, and even spent time in Europe training with professional teams. After graduating high school, I attended Baldwin-Wallace College, pursuing a degree in International Business while playing collegiate soccer. While at Baldwin-Wallace, I found my passion for fitness. I began as a complete beginner, and my first workouts in a gym setting consisted of me wondering around the gym doing a few sets on almost every machine in the facility! When I began organized weight lifting, I weighed 150lbs at a height of 6 foot 2 inches. As I progressed and watched more experienced lifters, I began to self educate myself. I spent countless hours teaching myself about fitness, nutrition and would absorb any information that was thrown my way. After a year and a half of learning and lifting, I had gained almost 45lbs of lean muscle, and had discovered my true passion in life. I transferred to Wesley College in Dover, Delaware, where I declared my major as Exercise Science. During this time, I became certified as a personal trainer through the International Sports Science Association (ISSA) and had reached a point where I was taking my training to the next level. I was integrating nutrition into my exercise program, and realized this was my calling in life. I started my career as a trainer at Urban Active Fitness, and progressed from there into an independent setting, training clients privately on my own. While in Dover, I worked as a trainer at First State Health and Fitness, specializing in one on one training and boot camp style workouts. Over the last year I was a coach at Jim Karas Personal Training in Chicago, IL, and have now launched my personal brand, Kyle Long Fitness
