Jhonphilipp Yonan, RTS, CPT, PES, CES, CNT2, INPAX4, is the Founder and Co-Owner of MÜV Integrated Physical Culture in Pittsburgh, PA (East Liberty). Jhonphilipp, in his own words:
I have been lucky to be surrounded by so many intelligent and progressive professionals throughout my time in the fitness and martial arts industry. They inspired me to constantly question what is being dictated by the industry. They have encouraged me to analyze every movement, its effect on the kinetic chain and to engage and inspire every individual I come in contact with throughout my career. Generally, we all have two arms and two legs and three energy systems we should tax based on our goals. I tend to steer away from mindless systems and trends. As a trainer, the experience I provide for each client should be in depth and mindful every time to challenge them accordingly. What we trainers/consultants do is invasive to the body and we should be aware of how we apply forces to every single joint and muscle. My path with the development of MÜV Integrated reframed my focus on fitness. It changed from the need of self-image actualization to a path toward self-actualization. I began to understand how to be in the present not only in life, but in the movement I’m doing at that point in time. My relationship with my own body has become stronger. Not to be like someone else, but to be the best version of me possible.
