Dr. Stephen Menya
Doctor of Chiropractic, Personal trainer, Owner
Robbinsdale / Minneapolis
My name is Stephen Evans Omondi Menya. I moved to the United States from Kenya in 1993 with the aspiration of competing in the Olympic Games. My dream was to represent Kenya in the 400m and 800m track division. I was able to get a good start at Graceland University and run in Midwest Conference. Later, I transferred to the SEC conference for the next period of my eligibility. Unfortunately, with a torn sartorius, my professional track and field efforts came to an end. This sustained injury would not allow me to run the world-class times anymore.
But side-by-side to this goal, was the dream of becoming a medical doctor, which later changed when I met Dr. Richard Alan Greene, a Doctor of Chiropractic medicine. Looking back, the running injury and meeting Dr. Greene were the two best things that could’ve happened to me because I learned a new concept of preventative medicine. I also learned that I have a passion for exercise. This was the beginning of a new chapter in my life. Or, as the saying goes, "my boat had docked".
With a combination of education, practical experience, and world-class athleticism this was my new direction. So, I pursued more education at the University of Minnesota, obtaining my degree in biology. In 2001, I was one of 28 presenters at the first Men's Health and Wellbeing Symposium in the Twin Cities. My "Muscle Fitness" workshop covered all aspects of bodybuilding.
In 2014, I obtained my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN, which has led me to where I am today: owner, personal trainer, and Doctor of Chiropractic at Lions Gym & Wellness.
Lions Gym & Wellness Center stands behind a quality attitude towards exercise. I have the expertise in physical fitness, as well as the education. We have a personable environment that has zero intimidation. But most importantly I CARE.
