To prepare athletes for their games, coaches Kendra and Lee Cendana teach them how to use the one ubiquitous piece of sports equipment: the human body. They condition this tool so that clients can improve their performance in nearly any specialty. Kendra, for example, has coached the national USA Tumbling and Trampoline Team, as well as golf players at William Jessup University. Lee focuses on speed, evaluating clients' running form and gearing them up for marathons.
The pair doesn't discriminate by experience level, though. They teach students of all ages and skills during co-ed cross-training classes, which combine strength exercises—such as lifting weighted bars, swinging kettlebells, and tossing ropes—with agility drills. They also plan personalized workouts for private sessions. Their youth- and team-training programs likewise hone in on specific goals, which can be anything from sprinting more swiftly across the field to unlacing a football in record time.
