Robert Vano, DC- Premier Bicycle Club.




Premier Bicycle Club (PBC) was founded by nine recreational riders in the North Hills of Pittsburgh when they came together with an ambitious goal founded on a pragmatic vision. They established the Premier Bicycle Club on the tenet of offering a best-in-class bicycling club that could target a wide range of riders and their unique strengths. To live up to the name “PREMIER”, the founding members desired the club to run in a professional manner, utilize newly available technology, and offer a wide variety of local, remote-start, and multi-day rides accessible to riders of varying abilities and ambitions.  Understanding the importance of a comprehensive approach to wellness, officers and board members have promoted healthy eating at club events and encourage all to enjoy the shared experiences and camaraderie amongst other members. Since its inception, the club has experienced rapid membership growth and continues to prove it is The PREMIER Bicycle Club! We interviewed Robert Vano, D.C., Founder of the Premier Bicycle Club.

Kelly Kuhn PT- Telemedicine & Physical Therapy




Kelly Kuhn, MPT, CSCS, PES, Cert-TMD, Cert-MST (in her own words): I became a physical therapist and a CSCS almost 18 years ago because I was an athlete and wanted to work with athletes. I started my career in Florida, my home state, working with athletes. Over time I began to work more with every day pain and injuries as well and realized that the same “athlete” principals apply to everyone. But, I also really began to focus on running as my way to stay connected to the athletic population. I just love getting people moving and back to what they love doing no matter what it is and feel that changing the way we look at and approach pain, movement and exercise can have major benefits to our overall well-being.
