About Kevin

"​​You won’t find a more knowledgeable or caring coach than Kevin Larrabee. Cape Ann’s fitness options just got a whole lot better"

- ​​Mike Boyle

​Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning

​Kevin graduated from Keene State College in 2008 with a BS in Health Science. After graduation, ​he interned for five months at Cressey Sports Performance in Hudson, Massachusetts where ​he had the opportunity to coach and learn under Eric Cressey and the coaching staff.

Afterwards ​Kevin joined Boston Sports Club in Woburn, Massachusetts when they opened their doors in December 2008. While there ​he led the training staff in client retention and personal training sessions.

​After one year at Boston Sports Club, ​he left to accept a position at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning (Ranked #1 Gym in America by Men’s Health Magazine) in Woburn, Massachusetts in October 2009.

Over the course of almost eight years at MBSC ​Kevin coached a wide demographic of athletes and clients, from middle school, high school and college athletes to adults looking to maximize their quality of life. ​

"​I’m excited to see the wonderful impact ​Kevin will have at Allied Strength and give him my highest recommendation."

"​As a coach, Kevin has demonstrated a high-level of proficiency with not only evaluating and making movement better, but also relating complex topics in a simple, understandable way. As a person, Kevin has a great heart, outgoing demeanor, and strong enthusiasm for helping others."

- ​Eric Cressey (​President, Cressey Sports Performance)

Recording an episode of The FitCast in front of a live audience in Long Beach, CA.

In April 2006, Kevin started The FitCast, a fitness and nutrition podcast while a sophomore at Keene State. He has recorded more than 500 episodes and interviewed the best and brightest in the industry. In 2015, The FitCast was named Best Fitness Podcast by Men’s Health Magazine.

​Flash Forward to ​December 2017, Kevin happily opened the doors to his first gym. Allied Strength has gained a reputation as the premiere destination for local adults and athletes to meet their goals. ​​Kevin founded Allied Strength to provide the community of Cape Ann (Essex, Gloucester, Magnolia, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Rockport) and the surrounding area a gym that supports their goals and enhances their lives through movement and strength training.

At the core of Allied Strength is a belief that we are Stronger Together, that is why group training is the foundation of what we offer.


Gyms and health clubs can be directionless, intimidating and uninviting. That is not the case at Allied Strength. It is vital that everyone who walks through the door at Allied Strength feels at home, no matter their age, fitness or training background. We want you to be YOU! This is your gym and it will continue to evolve and grow thanks to the Allied Strength community.

What ​Members Are Saying:

​​I trust Kevin's training. I have a hard time training on my own and he pushes me harder than I would push myself.


​Group Member

Kevin's approach is much more sophisticated than what I've experienced with other trainers. What I love most is how Kevin tracks everything we do. He's got a plan and I'm challenged to do a little bit more each session we have.

​If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.


​Kevin Larrabee founded Allied Strength on the belief that we are all Stronger Together. At Allied Strength you are not alone on your journey towards your goals. You will have a tailored program that will always challenge – but never defeat  – you, along with attentive coaching to assure you are receiving feedback throughout your training session. You will also be supported with weekly education on nutrition, sleep and other factors to improve your life and performance outside of the gym.​

​Allied Strength is community centric. Its core offering is group training. While some may have hesitation about training in a group and/or that they would rather train 1 on 1,  after experiencing the energy and encouragement that group training offers we believe they will understand how impactful and supportive it is. You will not find a better training environment in the area.
