Kyle, a former competitive golfer and RE/MAX World Long Drive competitor, started CrossFit in 2008 in a quest to find functional fitness after joining the Knox County Sheriff’s Office as a Deputy Sheriff assigned to the Training Unit. Kyle quickly discovered the benefits of the CrossFit methodology when applied to law enforcement tactics, firearms training, and mindset. Since joining CFKT, Kyle has been a staple in the early morning crowd as an athlete and as a coach and now leads some of the 5:00 AM sessions.
Kyle has been married to his wife, Mandy since 2007 and has one child, Nolan, who was born in 2013. Kyle attended Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina for his undergraduate degree and graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law in May 2008. Kyle is now a practicing business attorney with the law firm of Long, Ragsdale & Waters, P.C. and continues to be a part of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Regional Training Academy staff, where he focuses on legal and force-on-force training.
