Kirklan Taber

Certified in Pilates, Personal Training, and Manual Therapy

As a young man, my favorite gift that I received from my family was a set of weights. In 1994, after suffering an injury, I founded Kiki-Yo Fitness and began a journey of discovery. Along my path, I have been inspired to delve into various exercise and rehabilitation techniques geared to protect and strengthen the human body.
