Daniel Cabuling graduated from Carroll University in 2016 with a Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology with an emphasis in Strength and Conditioning. He also graduated from Westmont College, in 2012, with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology. He currently is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Daniel’s passion for exercise science and performance began during his time at Westmont College as a baseball player. He spent many stints on the disabled list due to several different injuries. Those experiences along with guidance from different mentors pushed him to learn as much as possible about developing athletes. His passion encompasses working with all athletes, but he spends more time dedicated towards developing baseball and softball players.
His passion for training baseball players is due to his own personal experience in the sport. He believes that most baseball players fail to live up to their athletic potential due to the nature of baseball being a game of failure accompanied by the belief that good baseball players are born with their athletic talent. The “why try” mentality is commonly experienced in the sport.
During the last 5 years he has witnessed hundreds of athletes surpass their perceived potential. This includes athletes throwing over 100 mph, running sub 6.5 60-yard dashes, or gain 20+ lbs of muscle. He by no means has the secret formula or quick fix, but he does know that if you genuinely believe an athlete can improve, give them the tools, and encourage them to work hard, crazy results can happen. He utilizes an in-depth assessment protocol to help identify areas for potential improvement, helps build self-belief in every client he works with, and ultimately believes that process will lead to enhancing their performance on the field.
Khailyn Neumayer graduated with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from West Valley College in 2016. And then furthered her education on a softball scholarship at the University of Minnesota-Crookston. In 2018 she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology. Khailyn’s interest in exercise science sparked when she spent several months rehabbing from a shoulder injury during her senior year of college. She remembers many moments in physical therapy and in the athletic training room rehabbing to get back on the field to compete. She ended up needing to surgically repair her shoulder due to playing through it for the entire season. She had previously undergone surgery to repair her hip and both of these experiences influenced her decision to find a way to work with athletes.
She was also able to serve as an Intern for the Athletic Training Staff during her time and UM-Crookston. She was responsible for pregame preparation, had on field responsibilities, and supported the Athletic Training staff on a daily basis. All of these experiences have culminated in a desire to share her experiences and knowledge with younger athletes so they can be successful in achieving their goals.
As an alumnus of Live Oak High School, she looks forward to helping youth softball players in the south bay area stay healthy, competing at their highest level, and pursuing their athletic dreams.
