Kynan Cleverley was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho and moved to Washington when he was little where he has lived ever since. He and his girlfriend, Brooke, have lived in Issaquah for about a year now and absolutely love the area. In high school, Kynan did the Running Start program at Seattle Central College, which allowed him to take college-level courses in high school. Kynan has always loved being active, with P.E. always being his favorite class. He recalls several times when he led friends through exercise routines, which may have prepared him for his career as a personal trainer.
During the colder months, Kynan loves to spend his time indoors at home or at the gym. He and his girlfriend enjoy going to dinner and a movie, or just having friends over for food and games. When it’s warmer out, Kynan loves hiking, camping, and seeing things he has never seen before.
Kynan started his career at Issaquah Fitness last spring as a Membership Advisor and is now one of the newest members of the Issaquah Fitness Personal Training Staff. One of his favorite aspects of his job is being able to help people make positive changes they need to their health, and to their everyday lives. He will be taking his test in March to become a Certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise.
One of Kynan’s fitness specialties is martial arts. He started with Korean arts, like Hapkido and Taekwondo, and then transitioned into Boxing, Kickboxing, and Submission Wrestling. Kynan discovered that competitive fighting wasn’t really for him, and realized that he truly loved to teach fighting for fitness. At Seattle Central college, he assisted in coaching the classes and found that he was almost learning more than he was teaching. He enjoyed helping the class stay motivated and is very excited to share his experience in his new kickboxing class at Issaquah Fitness.
