Kevin Caldabaugh, CSCS,*D
Kevin Caldabaugh graduated from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Economics. His love for the Olympic sport of weightlifting led him to a career in strength and conditioning, and personal training. Caldabaugh completed a Master's degree in Human Performance at the University of Florida (UF). While at UF, he had the fortune of working with Olympic sports athletes in the Strength and Conditioning Department. He has helped guide champions in the SEC, NCAA Regional Qualifiers, and in NCAA National Championships. He has also worked with professional and amateur athletes in all major sports, national and international-level weightlifters, and Olympic gold medalists. His degree and experience with elite-level athletes helped him acquire a job at a sports performance training facility in Sarasota, FL where he ascended into the role of Facility Director. After several years in Sarasota, he transitioned into the private club industry. Combining his initial interest in economics and passion for training, Caldabaugh quickly realized that directing a fitness center in a private club setting would provide a healthy challenge for him and be a wonderful way to make a difference in people’s lives. In 2011, he was named the Fitness Director at John’s Island Club. Recently, he also completed a second Master’s degree in Sports Management at California University of Pennsylvania. His current certifications include the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with Distinction, the National Academy of Sports Medicine's Corrective Exercise Specialist, the Titleist Performance Institute’s Certified Golf Fitness Instructor Level 1, Functional Movement Systems Levels 1 & 2 certifications, TRX Suspension Training, and USA Weightlifting’s Level 2 certification. Caldabaugh also serves on the Board of the Club, Spa, and Fitness Association as the Education Committee Chair.
