Soccer Background/Awards 

Brandon Ramirez, Head Soccer/Strength & Conditioning Coach

Exercise and sports were a big part of my life since the age of 7, when I started to play my first sport competitively. Playing soccer, basketball, baseball, football, and track at competitive levels at a very early age. Even back then I loved the enjoyment and the competitive nature they all bring. Sadly, during my senior year of high school through my junior year of college, I had to undergo 5 different left knee surgeries which cut my competitive soccer career short. Only 1 year later finding myself almost 15 pounds overweight, due to major knee pain and being told by multiple orthoptic surgeons and physical therapist that I would never be able to run or lift heavy again. I was then fueled to find ways to live a healthier life and safe ways to workout. Now after losing almost 15 pounds of fat, gaining years of exercise knowledge resulting in an Exercise and Sports Science degree and 3 personal training/sports performance certifications, and the ability to lift heavy without knee pain. I solely focus on helping athletes and individuals reach their fitness goals, ranging anywhere from; reducing injury risk of athletes, increasing overall athletic performance, helping individuals lose unwanted fat, helping gain mass & muscle or just being able to workout and live a pain-free life like myself. I have been blessed to be in a position to help others and will always do my best to get you to your personal fitness dreams and goals!

Background

Started playing soccer at age of 4, competitively since age 7. Playing the majority of my youth career for the Sporting Academy team (then known as the KC Wizards). Played for the Bishop Miege Stags (winning 2 state titles and a list of individual awards) in high school. Eventually went on to accept a scholarship to play at Rockhurst University. After 5 knee surgeries between my senior year of high school and sophomore year of college I had to give up the sport competitively. I then went on to coach youth soccer where I was awarded Boys Heartland Coach of the Year just after my second year as head coach. Now currently head coach of 2 youth teams and founder/head coach of Full90Fitness.
