The Kegel Training Center has announced the addition of Heather D’Errico, founder of BowlFit, as an advisory staff member.

D’Errico will be making appearances at Training Center events to give seminars on mobility, injury prevention, functional strength training and conditioning as it pertains to bowling.

D’Errico founded BowlFit in 2014 with a mission of providing education about fitness for bowlers and training programs to the bowling community.

Kegel’s Del Warren said of the partnership, “Her vision, like ours, is to improve the image of our sport by making bowlers become true athletes in every sense of the word. Her expertise will help KTC to provide students with education on what to do on and off the lanes to truly excel for years to come.”

D’Errico obtained a Master’s degree in Exercise Science while serving as the assistant coach for the bowling team and interning with the head strength and conditioning coach at the University of Central Missouri. She then obtained her Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Last fall, she became a Certified Functional Strength Coach, and continues to train all athletes and general fitness clients at Next Level Strength and Conditioning in Fairport, N.Y.
