Ciarán Lane brings international flair to our team, hailing from the Emerald Isle. He originally came to the USA from Ireland to accept a cross country and track and field scholarship at Clayton State University, where he competed for four years and obtained a B.S. in Health and Fitness Management.
Ciarán continued at Clayton State to obtain a Masters in Health Administration, while also serving as Graduate Assistant Coach in XC and T&F, where he worked extensively with multiple NCAA athletes. Intrigued by the coaching world, he completed internships with the Mammoth Track Club in 2014 and the Brooks Beasts in 2016.
Having been fascinated with soft tissue work and its capacity for treatment, rehab, and performance improvement since working with a physio in Ireland years earlier (as an athlete), Ciarán was more than happy to cross paths with Kinetik Founder and A.R.T. practitioner Jonathan Pierce during his time with the Brooks Beasts.
This encounter further confirmed Ciarán’s desire to move on from working a brief stint in hospital administration. He attended the Georgia Massage School, completing their 500-hour course mid-year in 2018. He was able to learn from outstanding, nationally and internationally recognized mentors during this program and also traveled to San Diego in March 2018 to shadow under Jonathan at Kinetik.
Ciarán completed A.R.T. certifications for the Lower Extremity in December 2018, Upper Extremity in March 2019, Long Nerve Entrapment in June 2019 and anticipates completing A.R.T. for the Spine and pursuing a Strength and Conditioning Certificate (CSCS) in coming months.
