Our Coaches

Kyle Balliet


n high school, Kyle  was a multisport athlete (football, baseball, basketball) who went on to play Division II baseball in college. He started doing CrossFit at home and loved it so much he wanted to join an affiliate. Later, while searching for a CrossFit internship, he found River 2 River Fitness. “I contacted Patrick and we talked for a few minutes. Two weeks later I was moving from my native Ohio to Metropolis, Illinois.”

“I have a passion for helping people and with River 2 River Fitness I can do that daily. One of my goals is to get to know every member as well as I can. I want them to see me as both a friend and a coach. That connection makes training easier and much more rewarding.”
