My passion for performance and efficient movement comes from a life of sports and sport competition which includes; road cycling and cross country skiing, Tae Kwon Do, Squash, Downhill skiing: Giant Slalom and Slalom, Track cycling as well as the participation in multiple equestrian adventures around the world.
Applied Health sciences, metabolic fitness, cellular health, physiology, Functional Movement and nutritional studies; including Ancestral, Paleo, Low Carb, Ketogenic, reduced feeding window, and fasting are all central to my strategies for optimizing health, performance, longevity and general wellbeing.
Empowering people with the knowledge and tools necessary to take back ownership of their health, and to optimize their functional movement, while enjoying an extended pain-free health-span.
Building a better foundation. Whether you are a circus performer, a gymnast, a yoga practitioner, an Olympic lifter, a X-Fit athlete, or any form of athlete engaged in the rigours of intense training and sports specialization, it is important to understand the consequences that injury to an athlete’s connective tissue support system will have on their potential for coordinated, pain free proprioceptively aware movement. When a structural dysfunction resulting from an injury like a fall or a strong impact with an external body or a wrong move is not recognized, its impact on the body will have life long repercussions. This dysfunction to the athlete’s support system will continue to interact negatively with all future athletic movements, creating a series of performance limiting compensations that will ultimately compromise the athlete’s likelihood for success. It is a priority to screen/assess the client for dysfunction/asymmetries and then rapidly restore balance in the athlete’s support system to avoid further structural dysfunction, dysfunction that will be exacerbated through the continued efforts of training and competition.
