 Kevin R. Gerstel, CSCS

     Owner & sole trainer for 13 Strikes Boxing & Fitness, Kevin Gerstel has years of experience as both a trainer and competitive amateur boxer, as well as a formal education & respected certification in the field of exercise science. 

     Kevin received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports Medicine from Merrimack College in 2003, with a concentration in Exercise Physiology.  He became recognized as a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) by the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) after sitting for the certification exam in 2004.  Kevin is currently registered through USA Boxing as both a coach and amateur boxer.  He is also certified in CPR and First Aid.

     After graduating, Kevin worked as a fitness instructor at Route 1 Racquet & Fitness in Saugus, MA, and later at M.I.T.'s Wang Fitness Center.  Desiring the freedom to train clients optimally with a boxing focus, and without the limitations of the traditional fitness club setting, Kevin started his own in-home personal training & boxing instruction business, RESULTS Personal Training, in late 2004.  Since early 2009, in addition to running RESULTS, Kevin also became the boxing instructor at Meara's Martial Arts in Burlington, MA, where he has taught both group classes & private sessions.   Kevin also trained students at Sambo 7 in Woburn & Quietman Sports in Medford. Currently training is done at the West End Gym in Lowell, MA.

     Throughout 2010, Kevin started making a number of changes to RESULTS Personal Training.   In addition, multiple new programs were designed utilizing newer facilities that became available.  As a result of all the major changes in the business, it was time to update the business name as well.  So in early 2011, '13 Strikes Boxing & Fitness' was born.
