About Revival Strength > Lane Gard
Lane Gard grew up playing an array of sports such as baseball, basketball, swim, and water polo. Lane would eventually excel in both water polo and basketball in high school and enjoyed the hard work and team camaradery that came with the two sports. After completing high school, where he earned several awards for his athletic accomplishments, he contemplated playing collegiate water polo, but instead joined the United States Marine Corps in December of 2005. While in the Marine Corps, Lane would be selected to a special unit that was responsible for the physical security of the President of the United States. He would also become a pistol and rifle instructor, a Marine Corps Martial Arts Instructor, and was responsible for the training and well-being of hundreds of Marines.
Shortly after leaving the Marine Corp in 2009, Lane would begin his journey as a high school basketball coach, where he enjoyed guiding and teaching others. It was during a friendly basketball scrimmage against his own players that left him bent over and gasping for air, which then helped him realize that he needed to increase his level of fitness. Thereafter, Lane walked into his first CrossFit gym, and began his life in functional fitness. Lane has always known that he wanted to guide and teach others as he had done in the past, and with his new found knowledge of functional fitness, it set forth a new path that would allow him to continue to do so.
Since 2010 Lane has continued his coaching journey through continued education by accomplishing both CrossFit level 1 and 2, completing the USAW Sports Performance course, and progressing through the OPEX CCP Level 1. Lane had also gained valuable experience when he partnered to open a CrossFit facility for over two years, and ultimately decided that individual design could best help those looking to live their best lives through life coaching, nutritional guidance and program design. Lane was so convinced that he could make a positive impact on the lives of others with individual design, that he packed all of his belongings into his car and moved from Southern California up to beautiful San Rafael when given the opportunity to work at Revival Strength.
