Dane Stair was born and raised in southwestern Wisconsin just outside of Milwaukee in a small town called Muskego. As a child he was heavily involved in athletics and sports performance as he participated in Football, Basketball, Soccer, Rugby, Tennis and Golf throughout high school. Because he was so involved in athletics, injuries started to come about and dismantled his athletic identity. At that point, Dane was in dire need of some means to help build himself back up to game-level performance and keep himself there. Dane participated in Physical Therapy sessions which had drastic results and allowed him to get back on the field, playing the games he loved. This experience lead Dane down the path toward a degree in Health and Wellness, because he knew exactly how much of an impact this form of therapy has.
