I have been in the fitness industry since 1994, and it is my passion to help people feel and live better. Over the years my training focus has shifted towards corrective exercise strategies.In 2019, I took a course with Gary Ward's concept of 'Anatomy in Motion' which is based on the premise that the body wants to be at its most efficient and will improve its alignment, when movement potential is restored. Together with NeuroKinetic Therapy, it presents a comprehensive method of an initial assessment. The essence of NKT is to identify inhibited vs facilitated muscles in compensatory movement patterns. In 2009 and 2014, I had already added MELT and The BioMechanics Method respectively to the list of programs I offer. MELT is a method through which people can learn to self-treat their connective tissue. The BioMechanics Method is another corrective exercise strategy which is complementary to MELT and the corrective approach taken by NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). Of course, I am also experienced in the traditional strength, cardio and core training forms of exercise including a multitude of balls, Bosus, balance boards, foam rollers and much more.
