Our Team


Owner  & CEO

For Graham Wilkerson, the owner of Genesis Sports Performance, there's nothing more rewarding than witnessing an athlete's confidence soar as they achieve new levels of success. It's that feeling of empowerment that has driven his mission since founding Genesis in 2014. An all-state defensive lineman in high school, Graham knows what it takes to excel at the highest levels of competition. He carried that drive to DePauw University, where he was honored as Defensive Lineman of the Year and won the prestigious Monon Bell MVP award. But Graham's true calling was realized off the field, where he discovered a passion for coaching and mentoring athletes. Armed with a master's degree in Athletic Coaching Education from Ball State University and an arsenal of elite certifications - including CSCS, USAW, CPPS 1 & 2, WSBB Special Strength, FMS, and FRC - Graham has dedicated his career to crafting programs that bring out the best in every client. From the raw rookie embarking on their fitness journey to the finely-tuned Division 1 athlete, he designs customized strength and conditioning plans to systematically build skills, strength, and mental fortitude. At the core of Graham's philosophy is the belief that every individual possesses unique talents waiting to be unlocked. By fostering an environment of trust, hard work, and unwavering support, he guides clients to shed their insecurities and reshape their mindsets for success. When he's not on the Genesis floor coaching, you'll likely find Graham practicing what he preaches - pursuing his own physical challenges through strength training and jiu-jitsu. It's all part of a lifestyle committed to uncovering the physical and mental grit that allows people to surpass limits and redefine their potential. So whether you're an athlete with your sights set on the next level or someone striving to uplevel your fitness, Graham's message is simple: Don't be intimidated. The Genesis team will meet you where you are and empower you to surpass where you thought possible. Your path to a stronger, more confident future is waiting.

Coach caleb

General Manager

In the world of strength and conditioning, there are coaches, and then there are life-changers like Caleb. With a Bachelor's in Kinesiology from IUPUI and certifications as a CPT, CPR and AED instructor, Caleb brings a wealth of knowledge to Genesis. But it's his passion for unleashing the potential in every client that truly sets him apart. For Caleb, the most rewarding moments come when he witnesses athletes grasping skills that transcend the gym floor. It's that "aha" moment when they realize the lessons of perseverance, discipline and teamwork aren't just for the weights room, but for life itself. You can feel his pride beam as he recounts stories of past clients taking those intangible strengths into the world beyond sports. When Friday rolls around, you'll find Caleb living out one of his biggest joys - an upper body blast alongside "the boys." There's just something special about pushing through that shared struggle and bonding over heavy iron. It's in those moments that the culture of celebration he so cherishes at Genesis comes alive. Whether it's a 90-pound grandma or a 290-pound linebacker, Caleb finds equal delight in every client's "level up" moment. Maybe it's a new personal record on the squat rack, or maybe it's just showing up consistently for a year straight. Whatever the achievement, you can bet he's letting out a booming "Heck yeah!" that echoes through the gym. For the newbies nervous about taking that first step, Caleb's advice is simple: Have fun with it. Don't get hung up on overnight results. Trust the process, embrace the grind, and forge yourself anew - one rep, one droplet of sweat, one bone-rattling yell at a time. With coaches like Caleb blazing the trail, champions are simply inevitable at Genesis.

Coach Derek Berggren

 Director Of Adult Fitness

From an early age, Derek understood the transformative power of fitness and athletics. Working out and playing sports provided an outlet, a source of positivity that shaped his perspective on life. Now, as an Exercise Science graduate and certified coach at Genesis, Derek is devoted to sharing that same experience with others. For Derek, there's no greater feeling than witnessing a client's face light up after hitting a new milestone. Whether it's shedding unwanted pounds, adding more weight to an exercise, or simply showing up consistently - Derek celebrates those hard-won victories right alongside his clients. His favorite moment? "Whenever a client realizes they've hit a milestone," he beams. Not surprising for someone whose own fitness inspiration was rooted in the uplifting feelings exercise brought to his own life. Derek's coaching philosophy is a seamless blend of dedication and lightheartedness. "The best part about being a coach at Genesis is having fun with the clients while pushing them at the same time," he says. When you step into one of Derek's training sessions, be prepared for an equal dose of motivation and laughter. Though his exercise diet consists primarily of lower body workouts ("My favorite is definitely the squat"), his true calorie burn comes from the infectious energy he brings to every rep and run. To anyone pondering their first visit to Genesis, Derek's advice is simple: "Come in with an open mind, be prepared to lift and have fun." It's a reflection of the man himself - an endless reservoir of encouragement who recognizes that enjoying the journey is just as important as crushing the destination.
