DON HAYS, OWNER
Don’s inspiration for AKP began with his core family values and burning desire to always persevere towards perfection. “Helping individuals overcome obstacles, gain confidence and feel better is a challenge, but facing those challenges and generating success from them is what I practice and preach.”
Don graduated from William Paterson University, where he received his degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Health and Physical Education K-12. He played baseball at WPU as their catcher and captain, and helped lead the Pioneers to their division playoffs every year. Upon graduating, the coaching staff invited Don to work as a specialist with the pitchers and catchers due to his intense regimen and insane focus.
Don’s passion for thrusting self-improvement unto others through his business is one that cannot be matched. His experience and attitude towards positive personal development reflect upon the wide range of individuals he has personally worked with throughout his ongoing career as a baseball coach, teammate, fitness professional, motivational speaker and educator. As a young and enthusiastic perfectionist, Don uses team tactics and personal exercise as the vehicle to help others identify their potential, improve individual success, and unlock their inner-excellence.
