KIRK MYERS

FOUNDER

Born and raised in Kansas City, MO, Kirk Myers is a fitness industry legend. For the past 17 years, his commitment to health and fitness has allowed him to not only transform his own life, but also those of his clients. Having struggled with obesity and heart failure at an early age, Myers felt it was his destiny to overcome both these obstacles and use that to inspire others. After graduating from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, he leveraged his knowledge gained from his own weight loss journey to start Kirk Myers Fitness, with the goal of helping others transform their own bodies and lives. In 2011, he made the move to NYC and by 2015, Dogpound was created. By creating an authentic, positive and vibrant atmosphere at his famed gyms in NYC and LA, Myers built more than a space for working out, he has built a community and a vibe that can be felt by everyone who touches the brand. Myers inspires not only his celebrity clients to lead healthy lives, but encourages his team of trainers to be inclusive and uniquely competitive, creating a truly magical experience. The organic and genuine relationships fostered by Myers is the driving force behind all things Dogpound.

CEO - DOGPOUND

Liu is a New York native and a mother of two, who was born in China and raised in Chinatown/Lower East Side Manhattan and is a part of several non-profit organizations including Community of Unity and the Bowery Mission. She has 15+ years of experience in real estate, investment and wellness.

Like Kirk, she realized early on her life's purposes was to help others and this helped align their vision and goals. As she’s watched DOGPOUND grow and expand, she has stayed focused on making an impact and most importantly shaping the company culture around helping others.
