Background

Dr. Meisten grew up in Montvale, New Jersey.  Moved away to go to college at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, and graduated from there in 1996 with a degree in Adult Fitness.  His earlier childhood dream was to have his own fitness center.  After college he worked for the Fitness Company, which owned and managed 70 fitness clubs up and down the east coast.  He worked at their facility in Newark, New Jersey for 2 1/2 years.  During that time he was a fitness counselor, personal trainer, fitness director, and assistant manager. 

While working for the company three of his fellow employees headed off to Life University to go to chiropractic school.  His mentor kept in touch with him, and felt he would be a perfect candidate to go to chiropractic school.  He knew Dr. Meisten thoroughly enjoys working with people and helping them attain their personal goals in the health and fitness industry.  As his desire to have his own a fitness facility changed, and with much consideration, he decided to give chiropractic school a chance. Dr Ken Meisten family
