Foghorn Fitness

I didn't really plan to be a fitness trainer, and I certainly didn't intend to launch a business around it. I'm a recovering litigator, a serial sports entrepreneur, a professional marketer, and a writer.  I've been a competitive athlete my entire life, that's true. I played baseball on the club team at Duke, and I've competed in Shotokan Karate (returning during the pandemic after a 20-year hiatus), triathlons, cycling, open water swimming, and running events for the past 25 years or so. It turns out that I really enjoy suffering--the hours in the saddle, the pavement pounding, the endless crawling around chilly San Francisco Bay, the daily grind at the gym. In recent years, I morphed from a spin class junkie to a spin class instructor, and things sort of took off from there. 

I became a TRX and Schwinn-certified group exercise instructor, and began teaching 50+ classes a month at private clubs all over the Bay Area. Along the way, I cultivated a holistic approach to training (and living), with a particular emphasis on breath practice, mobility work, meditation, and clean eating (e.g., Whole30). Oh, and I've whipped up a killer series of Spotify playlists for my group exercise classes. :)

When the pandemic hit a couple years ago, I saw that my little community was struggling, and that people were losing their mojo to stay active. So I continued teaching a handful of Zoom classes through the private clubs. But I recognized that I could do more. So I started this little business--Foghorn Fitness--as a way of helping people to stay active and to live healthier lives during these extraordinarily challenging times.

I lead about thirty group fitness classes and personal training sessions each week (virtual and in-person), and dole out plenty of (mostly welcomed) advice about healthy habits along the way. Over the past couple years, I've trained a few hundred people across a thousand-plus fitness classes and personal training bouts, and I think I've helped folks manage their way through these crazy times. I bet I can help you too.  

 

Weekly Schedule

I teach about thirty classes each week: TRX, HIIT and Spin formats, and Shotokan karate, too.  All levels welcome, and my training sessions can be scaled up and down for beginners and elite-level athletes alike.  Some classes are offered through the YMCA, some through other private clubs--these require memberships. I also offer classes my own Foghorn Fitness classes that are open to everyone (no memberships required). My current weekly calendar is below, so scroll down.

I regularly post outtakes from my classes--and a bunch of info regarding diet, breath practice, meditation, mobility, etc.--on my Instagram feed. And I write a regular "Foghorn Fitness' Week Ahead" email, that you can check out here.  I hope you'll subscribe to the email blast (you can do that at the bottom of this website, assuming you somehow escaped that intrusive pop-up).

Personal Training. It's not just about turning yourself inside out during sweaty training sessions. Any trainer can do that to you. For me, the most rewarding aspect of this whole thing is showing people how to lead healthier lives. So Foghorn Fitness' Personal Training emphasizes a super holistic approach: breath work, meditation, sleep hygiene, mobility, posture, diet & hydration, recovery, home gym-building, workout programming, and even a deep dive into performance via integrating cutting edge fitness tracking with a discounted Whoop strap. Curious? Ping me here and we'll talk.   

Keir's Backyard Zoom Classes

At present, I'm offering two Foghorn Fitness classes: TRX on Mondays at 12p PT and HIIT on Fridays at 9a PT.  I teach these classes virtually, via Zoom, and the action goes down in my backyard (weather permitting). If we're lucky, the Golden Gate Bridge's foghorn might even blow during class (hence my little company's name, get it?).  At the appointed hour, all you've gotta do is click on that little red button below to join any of these three classes. Shoot me $15 on Venmo when you get a chance.
