KYLE GOLDEN, FOUNDER AND CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER
Kyle’s expertise and passion makes him one of the best personal trainers in Austin.
– Maria O., client since 2008
As a kid, Kyle struggled with his weight. Often unhappy with his body, he knew he needed to make significant changes for the sake of his health. In high school, he dedicated his time to working out and eating healthier. It took a lot of determination and commitment, but he was able to turn his body and life around for the better. He had more energy than ever before and loved how he felt.
In 1997, he moved to Austin to attend St. Edwards University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. After working in the financial services industry for many years, he decided to turn his passion for fitness into a career and became a certified personal trainer through the International Sports Science Association (ISSA). In 2007, he founded Work It Personal Training.
After years of being personally interested in plant-based nutrition, Kyle officially completed the Certification in Plant-Based Nutrition through the T. Collin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies in 2017, which allows him to offer a more holistic approach to health and fitness by integrating more lifestyle and nutrition guidance for Work It’s clients. These two aspects in addition to physical exercise are crucial for overall health goals to be met.
Featured in many publications, including austin360.com, KXAN Austin-News, Tribeza Magazine, The AGLCC Agenda, and Austin Way, Kyle has continued to exhibit his excellence in the personal training community in Austin. He has also appeared on the Cooking Channel’s Restaurant Redemption and is a contributing fitness writer for many online and print publications.
In the ten years since he founded Work It, he has never felt so fulfilled. He loves working with people and helping them set goals. Most of all, he is thrilled to see how meeting those goals can positively change a person’s life.
