Inside the massive, well-outfitted Sportsplex, Fit Club Fairfield's team of personal trainers and fighting coaches teaches martial arts as both a method of self-defense and vigorous exercise. They train aspiring fighters in boxing, jujitsu, and muay thai, arming them with a suite of takedowns, punches, and kicks used in professional bouts. In sessions geared toward fitness, the team pits students against punching bags and focus pads as they battle off calories in pursuit of slimmer physiques, making participants more confident to don swimsuits or show their pillows who’s the boss.
Some people call Kevin Ensenat a certified strength and conditioning specialist. Others call him a level 2 A.R.T. provider. But perhaps the most important title is simply "coach." In that capacity, he privately coached New York Giants players Kevin Boothe and Chris Snee to prep for their Super Bowl championship. He guided college athletes through injury recovery, healing ACL tears and opening the door for continuing athletic careers. He did it all through personal training and group classes at his own indoor exercise studio, K-Strength Sports Training.
Joined by ACE-certified personal trainer Dan Hennessey, Kevin runs three distinct boot camps, two geared toward maximizing athletic prowess with progressive strength and agility training, and one designed to help women lose weight. The team of two also conducts one-on-one lessons and personal-training sessions for dedicated players seeking to target specific aspects of their game, such as tackling for defensive backs or lifting football players one by one off a dogpile for referees.
