About the Founder
Kevin Heine

I am an ACSM certified Exercise Physiologist and the founder of Dynamic Health and Wellness. I am passionate about health, wellness, and fitness as medicine and want to help others improve their well-being. I live in Lakewood, OH with my amazing wife, Kelley, and our beautiful daughter, Norah. 

My passion for exercise started when I was in high school. My coach at St. Louis High Performance Volleyball Club, Scott Mebruer, started a weight training program for my team. I immediately saw my results transfer to the court. Because of my improvement on the court, I was recruited to play at The Ohio State University, where my passion only deepened. Andy Britton, my strength coach at OSU, taught me more about physical fitness, and I soaked it all in. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by players who also bought into the training, and it culminated in a National Championship victory in 2011. (I'm somewhere on the bottom of this pile in the picture below!)   
While working toward that National Championship, I was also working on learning more about exercise physiology. I earned my degree in exercise science (as well as a minor in business) from Ohio State, taking courses in anatomy, physiology, nutrition, and exercise physiology. I learned about the human body and all of the positive benefits of both cardiovascular and strength training exercise. I was fortunate enough to learn from some amazing professors and graduate from one of the top-rated exercise science programs in the country. 

During this time, I also gained some very valuable work experience that took me further down my current path. During the summer, I worked for the Ohio State Department of Recreational Sports, eventually developing a summer camp curriculum aimed at increasing physical activity in the campers. During the school year, I worked for the NeuroRecovery Network at the OSU Medical Center, helping spinal cord injury patients learn to walk again through a specific treadmill training protocol. Upon graduation, I sat for and passed the ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist Exam to receive my credentials. 

My passion for wellness led me down multiple roads in my professional life. As a corporate wellness coach, I helped people reach their own fitness and wellness goals. As a researcher at the Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods at Case Western Reserve University, I helped children diagnosed as obese discover exercise. In my current role as the exercise physiologist for the Improve Study, I developed and implemented an exercise program for women over 65 who have had breast cancer treatment. While working with these women, I see first-hand the positive effect that exercise has on them. Their symptoms lessen, they walk better, they sleep better, they simply FEEL better. Yet most of them had never been a part of an exercise program before and few had touched a weight before joining the study. 

Through my own experiences, my coursework at The Ohio State University, and my career thus far, I have gained a well-rounded picture of the power of exercise and physical activity. I have formed Dynamic Health and Wellness to share my knowledge and to help others improve their health.
