Our Story

It all started in a basement with no windows, no A/C, and a leaky roof. The year was 2016 when owner Kyle Dosterschill’s dream of creating an Olympic Weightlifting gym became a reality—an  Olympic Weightlifting community in Dallas that puts its members’ progress first. 

You see, Kyle was tired of seeing the poor techniques and stunted progress rampant in globo gyms and Crossfit boxes. He realized the problems stemmed from the gyms’ misplaced priorities and unwelcoming atmosphere. Consequently, Kyle shifted his focus from competing to coaching. As an Olympic Weightlifter with a long career in competitive sports, he set out to create a gym that was not only welcoming, but prioritized the fitness needs of the individual. 

Thus, Hunger in the Wild was born from this dream and now offers a variety of strength and conditioning classes for adults of all fitness levels as well as youth, both on-site and online.

Our Story

We want people of all fitness levels and backgrounds to have a safe, encouraging place to train with expert coaches and a tight-knit community to support you along the way.

Building this dream was a journey that has been nothing short of rocky. Since its beginnings in an 800 square-foot basement, the Hunger in the Wild family has weathered a fire that destroyed our location and much of our equipment. But in true Hunger in the Wild wolfpack fashion, our members have stayed loyal, and we thank you. The Hunger in the Wild pack has since realized that together, there’s nothing we can’t overcome and accomplish.

At Hunger in the Wild, we promise to match you with programming that works for you! Our welcoming and encouraging gym family is here to push you every day — no matter your fitness level and goals. Check out our classes and join our wolfpack!

Our Goal

At Hunger in the Wild, we prioritize coaching that fits the needs of the individual. We’re not your run-of-the-mill gym that herds you and a dozen others along with the same prescribed fitness program. Every individual has different fitness levels and athletic goals, that may require a different training and conditioning journey. 

Our goal is to match you with programming that challenges you at your current fitness level, while providing a welcoming, encouraging atmosphere to reach your athletic goals. That’s why we aim to offer a variety of on-site classes in our Dallas, TX location with top-of-the-line coaching, as well as flexible, online virtual coaching.

We’re on a bold mission to set new industry standards by providing education, inspiration, and expertly designed strength training programs to people all around the world.
