The Team

Rob Kuhlman owner of Movement Academy

Rob Kuhlman


Rob began his career in fitness as a personal trainer 2010 in Orlando, Florida, where he earned his personal training diploma at the National Personal Training Institute (NPTI). In 2012, Rob continued his personal training career in New York and became certified in additional personal training services and specialties including advanced kettlebell, TRX, pre/postnatal, osteoblast therapy, functional movement screening, trigger point therapy, ViPR (Vitality, Performance, Reconditioning), and animal flow (calisthenics). He utilizes each of these skills to this day, based on each individual client’s needs.

Rob moved home to Lincoln, Nebraska in 2016 to become a fitness manager at a local gym in South Lincoln, where he led and developed other personal trainers. Rob was passionate about growing a team that was dedicated to helping people pursue their fitness goals in a safe and effective way. In the 10 years since Rob began his career, he has continued to grow and excel in his field, which eventually led him to his ultimate goal of opening his own fitness club, Movement Academy. Opening an innovative new gym in the city he loves is a dream come true! Rob is excited to be a part of the Haymarket community and help people live healthier lives through fitness.


Chris Casper


Chances are, you already know Chris because he is one of the most friendly and outgoing people we know!

Chris has been in the personal training world for 8 years, and his clients RAVE about him. “He’s helped me change my attitude from negative to positive!” – Jodi.

You can find Chris working hard AND having fun, often making those around him laugh. Check out his Friday class at 12:00 PM, Chaos with Chris, for a dose of hard-working fun. Or you can sign up for a personal training session!

When he’s not at the gym, he’s often trying to keep up with his two boys, Owen and Leo!

We could not be happier to have Chris as part of the gym fam!
