Jay Lopez

Boxing Champion | Boxing Conditioning Coach | Personal Trainer

I have been training, competing, and coaching in full contact sports my whole life. Started learning Martial Arts at a very young age of 5 years. Competing in both katas and co-ed sparring throughout my youth and teens winning multiple competitions and taking home numerous grand championships. I started my teaching and coaching in assisting my father with karate classes and eventually going on to instructing my own classes and coaching the sparring team for tournaments. I currently hold a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Shaolin Kenpo Karate.

A little over five years ago I walked into my first boxing gym and never left the sport. I soon found myself working out with the Amateur fight team and wanting to compete. About three years ago I was approached with the opportunity to become a Certified Rock Steady Boxing coach, to teach a specialized boxing class for persons suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. Shortly after that I obtained my Coaching certification with USA Boxing to be a Boxing Coach and train Amateur Boxers. Continuing my journey forward, with the Amateur boxers turning Professional, I soon became a licensed Professional Boxing Manager.

I am also a Licensed Cosmetologist with 20 years of experience and a certified Emergency Medical Responder. In my spare time I enjoy competing in obstacle course races, such as Tough Mudders and Spartan Races. I am a Marvel Comic Nerd who loves to Cosplay. I celebrate Halloween every day and I believe Unicorns are real. If I could have any superpower, it would be to control the weather like Storm.

With five years of training experience, I have worked with student athletes at Tactical Strength and Conditioning and the general population at commercial gyms; all helping clients achieve their goals through strength and conditioning.

I am here to guide and teach, build self confidence in the gym, and help you get stronger all while having fun! Seeing my clients achieve their goals in the gym that transfer to overall success in life gives me joy.

Daniel graduated from SJSU with a degree in Business with the intention of opening a gym, but he soon found out he'd rather be working with clients and leveling them up in their fitness journey than managing a gym.

He has experience in many styles of training, however he specializes in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting and always jumps at the chance to teach the Snatch or the Clean and Jerk. Daniel also has coached athletes at local weightlifting competitions and at the national level.

If he isn't coaching, you can find him at the gym (most likely in a singlet) watching weightlifting videos or practicing the snatch.

Phillip Nguyen

Assistant Strength Coach|Personal Trainer

Hey guys! My name is Phillip! I am currently working on my BA in Kinesiology with a concentration in Rehabilitation Sciences at SJSU. My fitness journey started my freshman year of high school where I had promised myself to make a change. I was overweight almost the entirety of childhood years. I’ve always known the issue was there, but had brushed it to the side, laughing it off and not seeing it as a major problem. It wasn’t until I started noticing my health and fitness level beginning to affect my everyday life, both physically and mentally, that I knew I wanted to be different and improve every aspect of myself.

I have dedicated years to doing this very thing. Being better. I have learned a lot and want to help spread what I know and help people get to where they want to be.

Helping people is all I have ever wanted to do. I will be your dedicated coach, biggest motivator, and friend in the gym. Come train with me and we’ll have fun and get better together!

Gabriel Bendo

Assistant Strength Coach|Personal Trainer

You can call me Bendo or Coach Bendo. I graduated college at California State University, Sacramento. I received my Bachelor’s of Science, Kinesiology, emphasis in athletic care. I’m using my degree to grow as a personal trainer here at Hyper Strength and Conditioning.

In my years of playing active sports, I played football for all 4 years and ran track for 3. In track, I competed in many events including: pole vault, high jump, long jump, 400m. I‘ve been practicing resistance training for about 3+ years. I use resistance training to help my clients build muscles and lose body fat.

Outside of fitness, I love to play video games, movies and watch anime. I love horror films. Also, my favorite anime is Naruto and my favorite character is Jiraiya. I look forward to training and talking about anime or movies with you.

Kenneth Tadeo

Assistant Strength Coach

My name is Coach Kenneth Tadeo, you can call me coach Ken; I have been training/coaching for about 3 years. In April of 2013, I was in a life-threatening accident; I was hit by a car going 40 miles per hour. I flew hit my head on the concrete and suffered a traumatic brain injury and through this journey, I got into coaching. For 4 years I focused on getting back on my feet, such as learning how to walk, talk and be independent again.
Through those years I grew a passion for helping people and I thought there was no better way to do that than through what I love to do, health and fitness. As soon as I began training people, I fell in love and couldn’t get enough of it. The joy I get from helping people reach their goals and helping them feel/look better is something I can’t find anywhere else.
My goal is to not only help you reach your goals but create sustainability in this lifestyle and make it fun for you. Let’s celebrate all the wins towards your path of success together.
