“I coach to help people maximize their potential athletically in an environment of respect, accountability, discipline and selfless encouragement, believing that everyone I coach has the ability to positively impact the lives of many.

To achieve this we at PSP3 have created an Athlete Pledgewhich all athletes must embrace and abide by.  We feel that through this pledge that our athletes will not only become elite athletes, but elite individuals.”

Kory Robertson, Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach/GetFit Assistant Coach

BS – Exercise Physiology (Kansas State University)

Precision Nutrition Level 1

Functional Movement Systems Level 1

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (Weightlifting)

USAW-1 – United States of America Weightlifting, Club Level 1 Coach

Throughout high school Kory was a 3 sport athlete competing in baseball, football and wrestling. Growing up the youngest of 3 he is, by nature, a competitive person. Kory was a 4 year letterman in football as well as 2nd team All-State his senior year. While attempting to walk-on the football team at K-State he found CrossFit and fell in love with fitness and it’s ability to help others! Kory’s competitive spirit quickly switched and he has put everything he had into it.

Kory has been training people of all ages since 2012 and has a huge passion to help others reach their potential physically, mentally and spiritually.  While coaching groups, personal training and virtual online coaching he has learned that coaching people is much more than teaching them how to exercise. His coaching is behavioral based because if we adapt good behaviors then physical performance, mental health and personal growth become byproducts.

After graduating from KSU in 2014, he worked with a company called Iron Tribe Fitness.  While at Iron Tribe Kory developed a distinct ability to make an individual impact on many people at once. The relationships that were gained through this were unparalleled as he not only got to know many of the athletes by their physical abilities, but also as the people they were/growing to become. Kory knew what drove each of them individually, allowing him to help them achieve their goals.

“We are so excited to add Kory to our team here.  He brings not only a vast knowledge in the field but also a personality that our athletes will be drawn toward.  His commitment to the betterment of our athletes will be noticed immediately and I have no doubt that he will help us continue to develop the most complete strength and conditioning program in Kansas City.”
