Kevin Branco (owner/trainer)
I learned early on that, for me, hard work, perseverance, and dedication were essential to attaining my academic, personal, and professional goals. I also learned that although some things come easier than others, the only way to improve is through commitment and repetition. This ethic allowed me to excel both academically and athletically. I participated in multiple sports in high school and my performance in these sports resulted in a football scholarship from Kutztown University where I earned degrees in Political Science, Public Administration, and Speech Communication.
Saying that I achieved these successes by myself would be both egotistical and misleading. While my commitment definitely played a key role in my achievements, I could not have excelled if it were not for the parents, friends, teachers, mentors, and coaches who helped me keep focus. While looking at a number of career options a few years ago, I spent a lot of time working out and helping friends improve their fitness through personal training. This led to my decision to purchase the Main Street Gym. I am now a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Council on Strength and Fitness and have over 3,000 hours of personal training experience.
My philosophy as a trainer is not only to understand my clients’ needs so that I can develop personalized programs to help them achieve their objectives, but also to coach them and instill in them the importance of committing themselves to a healthy lifestyle that includes physical fitness.
