WHY WHITE PINE ATHLETICS: They’re the only training company I have seen that truly believes in making a better you. Not just stronger, but healthier, happier, fitter, more mobile, and reaching goals you haven’t been able to before. Kyle believes in rest days, and keeping you healthier longer, so that you can reach goals the right way. There is no limit to where White Pine can take you.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF: I grew up in the desert of Arizona and have been obsessed with the outdoors since I was able to walk. Coming from a traditional sports background made transitioning into action/adventure sports a lot easier. I’ve been climbing for almost 6 years now, and it has allowed me to travel to places and see things that most people never get to see. In 2014 I met my wife, Dylan, and we have been traveling, climbing, and creating art together ever since. I first picked up a camera 4 years ago, and instantly fell in love with the art. I was mentored by Three Peak Films, and was instantly hooked on the process of video and content creation. When not trying to keep up with professional athletes for videos, I’m usually climbing, mountain biking, or spending time with my wife (or all three). My wife is pregnant and expected due in June 2017.

WHAT DRIVES YOU AS AN ATHLETE: The idea that improvement only comes with hard work and dedication.

TOP ACHIEVEMENTS: Getting married to my wife, Dylan. The next will be having a child.

MENTOR: George Bruce Wilson (Three Peak Films)

FAVORITE PLACE: Yosemite National Park

FAVORITE FOOD: Anything Mexican 

WHAT IS ONE INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF: I can’t physically do the splits because my hips are broken.
