Personal Training

Choosing a Personal Trainer is just like any other relationship – You’re going to get hurt, so find one that’s worth suffering with. And don’t expect results when you’ve never even tried! If you’re open minded, have an affinity for adventure, and want to improve the quality of your life, while having a blast – Call me, maybe!? Learn More

Brody Welte, Founder PaddleFit

ABOUT ME: City Of Light Fitness was created in 2013 as a platform to bring my own style of fitness training to Buffalo, NY. After completing studies in both Marine Science and Exercise Science and traveling the country I decided to return home to Buffalo, NY and integrate my passions as a surfer, SUPer, and weightlifter to develop my own unique style of fitness training. I partnered up with KC’s Fitness and Mustache Fitness & Barbell where I apply my knowledge as a Certified Personal Trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, a Level 1 Sport Performance Coach with USA Weightlifting , and Kettlebell Training under the StrongFirst methodology. I have used my skills to help clients pursue their weight loss goals and athletes of all abilities take their performance to the next level. In addition, I’m a Certified Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Instructor with PaddleFit and I have introduced the joy of Stand Up Paddleboarding to Buffalo’s waterfront since 2013 through Intro Lessons, Fitness Classes, and as the director of the Buffalo Paddle Festival – Buffalo’s first Stand Up Paddleboard, Kayak, and Canoe race event!!!
