I’m Kyle Johnson. I am an avid health and fitness enthusiast. As a physical therapist, it is my job to help people restore their body to its optimal level of function. It is also my passion to help people achieve a sustainable lifestyle that leads to a body and state of mind they desire.
Growing up, I was involved in many sports. I played soccer, basketball, lacrosse, football and ran track and field. I was also lucky enough to walk-on to a top Division I football program at Penn State University. Through my career as an athlete, I did a lot of training. And to better understand how to make myself the best athlete I could be, I did a lot of reading on different training methods, injury prevention, and nutrition. Through my learnings, and putting into practice what I learned, I transformed myself from a decent high school athlete to a Division I athlete. I have stood toe-to-toe with some current NFL players and All Pros (and am blessed to call a few my close friends).
I’m sure you can imagine through the participation in sports, I sustained many injuries. And yes, I was a regular in the physical therapy clinic. It was then that I knew, “This is what I want to do.” Being able to help people return to high level of athletics or get through their day pain-free has been my mission since a young age. Currently, I treat patients for Excel Physical Therapy in Washington Square, Philadelphia and am thankful I have the opportunity to call my passion a career.
I started this blog to help pass on the knowledge I have gained, and continue to gain, to anyone who wants to learn more and take control of their health and wellness. I feel there is a gap between being “injured” and maintaining a healthy, pain-free life. I want to bridge that gap by providing readers the knowledge and tools so they are informed and prepared in their everyday lifestyle. I also want to show you how you can achieve the body and attitude you’ve always wanted through diet and nutrition. I hope to inspire people to utilize this blog as a resource for motivation to reach their fullest sense of self.
