Evan Kleinhaus grew up in Lancaster City being a multi-sport athlete and knowing a good bit about the human body from the sports he played. An avid runner, Evan was on his high school and college Cross Country/Track and Field teams.
Evan received a BA in Global Geography at Millersville University. During that time he also coached Cross Country, Track and Swimming at McCaskey High School.

This provided Evan with a balance between the two professions of massage therapy and personal training, giving him an advantage to help clients achieve their goals.
