“I wanted a chance to change the world” – Devan Kline

1987

The Beginning

Devan and Morgan were brought up together in Battle Creek, Michigan. They first met in 6th grade and became childhood sweethearts!

To say they’ve had difficult upbringing would be an understatement. Devan was a victim of his parent’s drug, alcohol, and physical abuse, while Morgan’s father’s life was tragically ended in a car accident when she was only five years old. The two met in 6th grade and became each others outlet, best friend, and life long soul mate!

Devan struggled to pull through his childhood and Morgan stayed by his side. The couple graduated Lakeview High School and went to college two hours apart. Morgan earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Food Marketing from Western Michigan University while Devan played baseball on scholarship at Central Michigan University.

Finding Passion

After Morgan graduated college she moved to Naples, FL to elevate her marketing career. Meanwhile, Devan was signed to a professional baseball contract with the San Francisco Giants traveling the country following his dream.

While traveling, Devan would stay with host families. It was a revelation to Devan seeing how normal families function as a broken home is all he knew. For once, he got to experience what parents dedicated to their children looked and felt like. Homemade meals, clean laundry, and unconditional respect urged Devan to show love back. For over six years he would assist the host families with their health, nutrition, and fitness plans.

Devan got a chance to experience how building happiness through health spread throughout the household. How helping a mom put herself first made all of her relationships flourish. This brought an unparalleled level of satisfaction he had never experienced before, even greater than striking out the side in the 9th!

These moments did not breed an “AH HA!” moment for Devan but soon would become the foundation for changing lives all over the world.

After being released from the San Francisco Giants, Devan and Morgan would live together in Naples, Florida. While Morgan was excelling the food marketing industry, Devan began his life’s work as a Certified Personal Trainer. He started a women’s only boot camp called “Lightning 900 – Burn 900 Calories Lightning Fast”. This program quickly became the most popular fitness program in Naples and further shaped what Burn Boot Camp would ultimately become.
