Dr. Kyle Coffey is a physical therapist, exercise physiologist, faculty member, and clinical educator who is passionate about increasing knowledge of movement, health, and wellness with patients and clinicians. Driven by research and experience, his ultimate goal is to get every person he works with to become resilient in their life or sport.
In addition to owning his own clinic and educational company, Motus Physical Therapy and Performance, Dr. Coffey is a full-time Lecturer and Exercise Physiology Program Director at his alma mater, the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His research interests include the role of physical activity in memory, cognition, and academic achievement particularly in the elementary through high school population.
What began as self-application of blood flow restriction (BFR) training to stay healthy while recovering from an upper extremity injury, turned into a love for the research and a desire to safely and effectively apply in both the rehab and training populations. Time is our greatest resource, in life and in the clinic - an adjunct to traditional strength training was needed to help people train and rehab smarter, not harder. Thus Modern Strength Training was born!
Outside work, Kyle likes to spend time with his wife, son, and dog. He enjoys cycling, running, reading, gardening, and landscaping. He has a good sense of humor and challenges you to give him a good one-liner.
