on a napkin
Kinplus started as an idea on a napkin with my twin brother Derek. We both had experiences with the healthcare system due to setbacks in running and often found ourselves engaged in debates about healthcare ethics during our time at university. These discussions sparked something within me, making me think about the potential of Kinesiologists. In 2015, Kinplus was born, a name that represents the bond between brothers ("kin") and the outstanding attention to detail, value, and service we aimed to offer our clients. With the support of my mentors, family, and friends, I bootstrapped the business and started teaching fitness classes and making house calls. In 2018, I rebranded the logo for a more professional look. Despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic, Kinplus persevered thanks to the unwavering support of my clients and family. In 2023, I had the opportunity to expand by occupying the unit next door, enabling me to bring in more professionals and enhance our clients' wellness journeys. My intention in sharing this story is to show the community that dedicated professionals exist who strive to provide care even in the face of adversity. As the only Kinesiology Studio in Niagara, I aspire to reach more people and positively impact their dreams in 2024.
Registered Kinesiologist, Founder
Kevin Moore, R.Kin understands the role that health professionals have in maximizing a client's potential. He has been a distance running coach in the area since 2009, working with youth to adult populations. He has been the head coach of two university athletics programs at Brock University. This blend of experience, professionalism and leadership sets him apart, and he is a true pioneer in the field of Kinesiology. I have always been curious about how the body reacts and adapts to stress. As a national class youth athlete, I wanted to understand the training that I was performing and enjoyed searching for resources that helped me grasp these ideas. In university, that passion continued to progress. It was at this time that I started coaching adult athletes and in order to help them. I now applied the academic knowledge from my Kinesiology studies and the empirical lessons from the great coaches and athletes in our sport. Through these experiences I was able to develop my professional capacity as a coach and then as a Registered Kinesiologist. That curiosity in how the body moves, reacts and adapts has led me to where I am today. I see firsthand how athletes move and interact in the world, this blend of professional competence and real-world application make me a uniquely equipped to effectively provide Kinesiology services to my community.
