To shape the future of how Canadians improve fitness and enhance movement by combining the highest level of evidence based exercise, manual therapy and rehabilitation services to our customers.
The KIN Studio was never supposed to happen. In a time where heavily financed rehabilitation clinics and multi-million dollar gyms with rows of shiny equipment and valet parking dominated the Toronto health and fitness market, a young man with a strong heart and a clear vision was waking up every day at 4:45am to train clients and fold towels at a local gym because in his heart he believed one day he would give people more. His name was Alex Allan and after a decade of achievement, study, sacrifice and practical experience, he became a Registered Kinesiologist and suddenly the “more” he had dreamt about years earlier became apparent. Alex noticed that many of the clients who came to him with the goal of getting in shape also had previous injuries, and muscular imbalances in need of repair. They wanted to increase fitness, decrease pain and not get hurt in the process. The KIN studio was founded to balance these goals at the highest level possible. Our combination of advanced fitness expertise and complex injury management fills a huge gap in the Canadian wellness industry, right between personal training gyms and traditional physiotherapy clinics. 16 years later, The KIN Studio is alive and well, offering proof to the idea that success and positive change can be funded by many different types of currency.

With thousands of personal trainers and physiotherapists in Toronto, making the right choice for your wellness needs can be daunting.
