About Kyle Crist

Kyle, a Roseville, California native and baseball prodigy. Granite Bay High School’s champion, leading them to victory in the Sierra Foothill League Championship. The Los Angeles Dodgers saw his potential, drafting him in 2001. But Kyle had bigger plans.

He chose to dominate both on and off the field, accepting a full ride scholarship to UC Berkeley. As a weekend starting pitcher, he commanded the mound for three incredible years, leaving hitters in awe.

In 2004, the KC Royals knew they had found a gem. Kyle’s pitching prowess took him through four years as a dominant starter and two as a fearless relief pitcher. Even in the minors, he was a force to be reckoned with, leaving his mark in AA.

But Kyle’s passion extended beyond the game. Over the past 20 years, he’s taught high school baseball, coached travel ball, and shared his expertise through personalized lessons. His impact reaches far beyond the diamond.

Now, as the driving force behind So Kali Sports and Fitness, Kyle’s mission is clear: unleash the potential of aspiring athletes. Through precise assessments and customized training programs, he’s propelling them to the next level.

At So Kali Sports and Fitness, we’re obsessed with athlete development. Our dedication is unwavering as we push our clients to new heights. Join us and become part of a legacy built on power, precision, and unrelenting drive.

Sports Philosophy

My philosophy is rooted in a simple yet powerful principle: the effort you invest in your craft determines the rewards you reap. With this guiding principle, I am committed to empowering athletes to reach their full potential through a holistic approach.
At the core of my training philosophy lies the belief that success stems from a combination of mental and physical strength. I strive to impart the same fundamental principles taught at the highest levels of athletics, equipping athletes with the knowledge and tools they need to excel.
Every training program I design is tailored to the unique needs and goals of each individual. By building upon a solid foundation, we work together to enhance mechanics, boost performance, and unlock new levels of achievement. It’s about taking your existing skills and elevating them to new heights.
Beyond the realm of sports, my mission is to provide athletes with a comprehensive toolkit that extends far beyond the field or court. From incorporating effective stretching techniques to harnessing the power of mindful breathing and beyond, I empower athletes to integrate these practices into their daily lives. Together, we establish a strong foundation that supports overall well-being and sets the stage for lasting success.
With unwavering dedication, I am here to guide and inspire you on your journey. Let’s work together to forge mental and physical fortitude, laying the groundwork for unparalleled achievements. Get ready to embrace a transformation that transcends sports and extends to every aspect of your life.
