Kevin is part of the Chalkheadz team that instructs those who want to learn how to move and control their bodies in new and really cool ways! As a kid and young adult he was very active in the martial arts, bikes, skateboards and rollerblades to name a few. When moving onto college he found club gymnastics at CMU, where he was able to learn new skills and train regularly. Not really the competition-type, Kevin is motivated more by fun, freedom and fitness! He recently has been brushing up on Parkour and tumbling skills, while integrating calisthenics and flexibility training into his regimen. Kevin is a doctor of physical therapy and a fellowship-trained orthopedic manual physical therapist with over 15 years of experience. Aside from evaluating and managing the human body’s quirks he enjoys opportunities helping all ages of people to stay moving, seek opportunities to learn new and unique skills and do so in a safe, fun and energetic environment!
Andrew is excited to encourage participates to move and control their bodies. He has been an active rock climber, slack-liner, and a seeker of movement based activity since a young age. In general, he loves to share these experiences with others and seeing people challenge themselves to do new things. Since 2002, has been working in the experiential education field, challenging kids and adults to discover new ways of interacting and being. Most notably, as a trainer and consultant, Andrew has worked with physical education programs and teachers around the country to implement programming that promotes play, movement, and choice as an educational tool. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Recreation, Park, and Tourism Administration and focused in experiential education and adventure recreation. In 2013, Andrew shifted gears to be home on a regular basis with his beautiful family and is working as a project manager and tower climber for a local IT company. Even in the shifting of jobs Andrew finds himself moving and teaching, he is regularly climbing 500’ towers and teaching others how to climb safely. He is ecstatic about the new program at Chalkheadz so that he can move, teach, play, and have fun with all involved.
