Coach's Creed

Optimal health can mean a hundred different things from person to person. Once you find what those things are for yourself, it is important to know that you have a variety of resources and  fellow members/coaches to help you along the way. Even though your path to achieving your personalized definition of optimal health will be ever-changing...the education you receive, the community you create, and the fulfillment you experience will be forever yours. In a world that claims to be thorough, we hope to also be helpful.

Alex V.  

|| Personal Training Manager

Your weekday wake-up call! Alex helps clients start the day off right with his morning sessions. 

|| Education/Credentials:

-B.S. in Exercise Science (Minnesota State University, Mankato)

-M.Ed. in Applied Kinesiology (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities)

|| Background:

-After graduating with my Bachelor's Degree, I was hired as a head strength and conditioning coach for Hortonville High School. During this time, I created and implemented new and improved S & C programs for all the athletes. I also ran the fitness center that was open to the public after athlete hours. I ran multiple group fitness classes during that time open to the public.

-I decided to pursue my Master's Degree after a couple years of being a head strength coach. During my time at the U of MN, I was a full-time intern with the athletic department. I worked directly with the head strength and conditioning coaches for multiple sports. My time was mainly spent training athletes, performing movement assessments, completing strength and power tests, and aerobic/anaerobic output tests on new athletes.

-After receiving my Master's, I've been training athletes and the general population to help improve strength, speed, body composition, and teaching how to improve one's path to a healthier lifestyle. I have been with Tone 2 Day since the summer of 2016 and have loved every minute of it!


Kyler E.

|| General Manager

Finish off your day and week strong during evening and weekend sessions with Kyler! 

|| Education/Credentials:

-B.S. in Exercise Science (Concordia College, Moorhead)

-M.S. Clinical Exercise Physiology (College of St. Scholastica, Duluth)

|| Background:

-After my undergraduate and graduate schooling, I started as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist in Cardiac Rehab at Sanford Health in Fargo, ND. My main duties were to prescribe exercise and nutritional advise to those rehabbing from cardiovascular surgeries and episodes. I then shifted into working at a medical device clinic (also at Sanford Health) as a pacemaker technician. I always thought I would want to make an impact in the medical field using my Clinical Exercise Physiology schooling, so I moved from Fargo, ND to the Minneapolis, MN area in hopes to finding that "dream job" on that career path. 

-I soon found my passion for personal training at Life Time Fitness Lakeville (6 years) where I wanted to make the same impact through individuals' health and fitness journeys. I believe that all professions that impact human health (physician, physical therapist, registered dietitian, personal trainer, etc.) should work in harmony to change the way we define "optimal health".
