Not getting the results your hard work deserves? If your body is out of balance it's unlikely you ever will. Whether your training results are poor, you suffer from back pain or you have physically compensated because of an injury, Corrective Exercise will allow your body to return to balance and achieve better results. The one thing an 80 year old adult and a 22 year old professional athlete have in common is that they would both benefit from Corrective Exercise.
Movement originates from posture and the overall structural integrity of the body, so if your posture/structure is less than optimal your movement patterns will be inefficient meaning that you will obtain decreased results from any training program - and possibly also pain.
There are many classic problem patterns that your body may display such as rounded shoulders, forward head, flat back, flat feet, knock knees, excessive lumbar spinal curve... the list is endless! All of these patterns, if allowed to persist and progress, will eventually result in pain, injury and poor performance. Corrective Exercise will tighten up those muscles that are long and weak while stretching out those that are tight and overactive. So, whether you are a casual gym user, office worker, recovering from an injury or are a competitive athlete, Corrective Exercise will benefit you and allow you to achieve improved function and performance.

I have now over 30 years experience in this field ( started in 1990) and have probably more experience of anyone on the planet in working with people one to one. On the basis of 20 to 30 hours a week and working 48 weeks a year since that date I have accumulated between 30,000 and 46,000 hours experience. As I write I am now 60 years of age, married with 4 kids and very active and participate in exercise most days. I have currently none of the age related illness we are led to believe we should expect and feel well. I take no medication and have never been recommended any. I haven't have a need to visit the doctors for as long as I can remember except for injuries incurred falling on the Alps. I regularly push weights, train Bodyweight exercises , do mobility and flexibility training, cycle every other day, practise Muay Thai and spar 2-5 times a week, ski 30 days a year, Kayak all summer, enjoy a glass of wine, enjoy food and stay relaxed. All of this may be good luck and/or good genetics but there is sold evidence out there that trying to do the right things regarding food, exercise and lifestyle can make an enormous difference to health outcomes. I'm very grateful for my good health and I'll also keep my finger crossed fi now and also keep doing the right things. I'd like to help you achieve what I have over the years and beyond.
