This Month's Featured Athlete

Gage Kingsmith
19 years old
Gage Kingsmith is a tennis player at Eastern Illinois University. Throughout his career, he has had many successes, but one of his most memorable moments was shared with his varsity teammates; clinching their spot in the conference tournament against Tennessee State University. “We were able to win in a tightly contested match with a lot on the line. This not only gave our team a lot of confidence, but it gave myself confidence that I was able to use throughout the rest of season,” says Gage.
But Gage does not plan for that to be the height of his success, he has lofty goals that he is working hard to achieve. He aspires to become a professional tennis player, competing in tournaments on the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) World Tour. Gage knows his dreams are big, but he does not shy away. “It’s a long road ahead of me, and I’m hopeful I can work hard enough to reach my goal!” The constant ability to progress every day is what motivates Gage to keep doing better. “Over the past few years I’ve been able to get a little bit better everyday, whether it’s through fitness, my tennis on the court, or through mental training,” he says.
Gage has much appreciation for the Athlete Factory, stating that “I was fortunate enough to come to the Athlete Factory and have an awesome experience, and I have so much gratitude towards all the coaches, especially Tom Clifford”. The Athlete Factory strives to support its athletes and provide them with the tools necessary to not just compete, but to excel at the highest of levels. For tennis, our distinctive work in coordination effects changes in critical agility capability that is almost non-existent elsewhere. “Training at the Athlete Factory is different than any other fitness program that I have ever gone through. Their attention to detail, focus and willingness to help even when you’re not in the gym is second to none. I feel taken care of and feel like I’m maximizing my ability as an athlete. Every coach at the Athlete Factory is there to help you on your journey as an athlete,” adds Gage.
When asked what advice he would give to aspiring athletes, Gage says “Enjoy what you do. You have the opportunity to be an elite athlete in your sport, so enjoy it while it lasts!”
