As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, I founded Logan Kinei in 2014 as I recognized huge gaps between the realms of physical therapy, rehab, fitness training, sport training, work and play. At that time, I set out to help change and improve upon the current approach to health and fitness, especially with regards to human movement. However, what I was actually seeing was huge gaps in health, and life, in general.
Through my experiences of working and interacting with people who have pain and injury, I began to question. I was questioning everything, and I started questioning early on, which led to the start of Logan Kinei in 2014. However, it wasn't until the end 2018 that I actually gained more clarity on my path. I realized that I was actually questioning the approach of Western medicine, our health care system. But, not only was I questioning health care, I was also questioning the popular societal approach to life.
Through questioning, continuing to work with people, and self inquiry, I also realized that movement is a small piece of the overall picture. Movement is a limb of life, however the way I have always been able to help people the most is through personal connection. Most of the issues I have seen with people stem from a strong connection to the mind. To help people, to teach and guide others, I build trust and the ability to be vulnerable.
I recognize that all people have to improve themselves first, their awareness (or consciousness), to further evolve throughout our lives. As humans, we can only help others once we first help ourselves. This is the evolution of life. The more clarity we get, the more self accepting we are, the more joyful life becomes. With joy comes all else.
We all have the ability to achieve great things in life, but we have to be able to move beyond the pull of self doubt, self consciousness, comparing ourselves to others, and our past. We can do this, and I recognizes the strength of providing help and guidance to others through this process.
In 2019, participated in the first quarter of the Fit for Service Mastermind with Aubrey Marcus of Onnit. He also strongly connects to the teachings of Wim Hof, Joe Dispenza, Rupert Spira, Sri Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj, to name a few, to improve his own life as well as help others.
Honestly, I have never been more excited about life.
I look forward to working with some very special people to create a place for people to see themselves in a positive light and then be able to spread the energy and love with others.
I live in Philadelphia with my wife, Kait, and our mini goldendoodle, Avett.
We work hard to travel, connect to other cultures, and be kind to the environment and all of nature.
At Logan Kinei, we proudly support Sea Legacy, Charity: Water, and the Farmers Footprint. All of these causes are working to connect us, humans, back with nature, clean water, and quality food. A necessary step if we are to survive as a species, and help this earth and all living beings thrive.
The Logan Kinei Podcast: Ep. 2
I first started Logan Kinei with private training, working only with individuals one-on-one to provide the best quality of care as possible. I focus on longevity of health and working with people for long periods of time to help guide them in their quest to be healthy, fit, and feel good. I focus on long-term goals because quick fixes are always temporary. In my experience, I have noticed that true changes start to take place anywhere from 1-2 years of consistency, after everything finally 'clicks'.
Though I have experience and enjoys working with clients at all levels, I am particularly skilled in working with those whom are new to exercise/fitness training, need to gain mobility, have strange/chronic pains and injuries, and those returning from injury - as far as movement is concerned. My clients range from: no pain or injuries to significant limitations due to chronic pain, injuries, or surgeries. My clients participate in a wide variety of sports, hobbies, occupations, fitness backgrounds, and lifestyles.
I feel it is important to learn from all experiences in life, whether good or bad, for entertainment or teaching. Everything we do at every level involves movement and affects our physical and mental health.
Though my approach to therapy and training is to not get caught-up in one school of thought, I do align strongly with principles of Functional Range Conditioning (FRC®). I am a certified FRC® movement specialist (FRC®ms). To learn more about FRC® please visit functionalanatomyseminars.com.
Movement is part of the answer to healthy joints, so individuals need to have an understanding of the movement and the body, but also have to have an understanding of body-mind unit. Success always starts with knowledge.
Through his career, I have worked with and helped athletes and non-athletes of all ages and skill levels - from children and adolescents to working adults, professional athletes, including Olympians, NFL, MLB, basketball, and a variety of high level NCAA sports. I have extensive experience treating clients with a wide variety of injuries, pains, and surgeries throughout the body. Including, spending some years as the "go-to" concussion physical therapist for the Philadelphia Phillies.
I have a long list of physical therapy continuing education experiences and certificates, however I find them irrelevant at this point.
I received my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Drexel University in Philadelphia; and my Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology: Movement Science from Penn State University.
Though I enjoy working with individuals on their movement, it is really getting to connect with them that I enjoy most. I love to teach, give guidance and advice that will help people make thoughtful decisions for themselves.
I am setting out to change the way people interact with their world.
This starts with being people knowledgable to have the awarenss, confidence and understanding to be more autonomous with their own health.
