Collin Hoffman


Collin lives and breathes fitness, proper nutrition, and athleticism. A
proven motivator, coach, and educator, Collin specializes in taking the
guess-work out of training. If you have ever played team sports, or more
broadly, ever struggled alone to break through a fitness plateau, for
instance trying to reach a goal weight or performance milestone, you

an experienced coach can make.

A major proponent of progressive training throughout each camp, and

intensity. The sand is much easier on the joints than any gym floor, and at
the same time, it adds a level of intensity to even the most basic
exercises. Because of that, Collin’s classes tend to draw a highly varied
population, from those working through post-rehab and anyone who is new to
training and currently deconditioned, to the weekend warriors and fitness
enthusiasts, all the way to elite athletes who typically feel restrained by
group classes. He maximizes the group’s potential by his ability to adapt
the workouts to the individual’s strengths and limitations.

Collin is also a nationally recognized authority on sport specific strength
and conditioning, coaches lacrosse at a local high school and university,
and still finds time to play himself (he’s a member of the Grand Rapids
Dragonfish, a CILL box lacrosse team). And speaking of Grand Rapids, Collin
proves that Michiganders are more than capable of surfing. In fact, you’ll
typically find him out on his board when he’s not running classes on the
