Upon completion of his internship, Clemente was offered a permanent position as a Strength Coach for HIT Center Austin, where he has worked with hundreds of athletes ranging from middle school to the professional level. Combining his lifetime involvement in sports with his desire to learn, he has developed a great understanding for the body and what it takes to achieve total fitness. This has also prepared him to work with clients from a variety of backgrounds and fitness levels. Clemente is also a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA).
In addition to personal training, Clemente runs HIT Center Austin’s Youth Athlete Developmnet Training (ADT) classes.

Clemente strives to help every client reach fitness goals in the quickest, safest way possible while emphasizing the importance of sustaining those results after the training is over. As he reminds his athletes: “It’s not a race, it’s a lifestyle. Train like there is no finish line.”
