Hi, I've spent all my life since the age of 10 years old in some kind of physical pursuit there's not much I haven't attempted in one form or another. Ive gained black belts in various martial arts like Aikido and competed in Judo and Karate like Kyokushinkai and Wada Ryu for many years.
I began my career in training and rehabilitating people seriously in around 2007 after having had some horrendous lumbar spine prolapses, knee surgeries and neck and shoulder nerve problems.
Before that I had a pretty successful career as an electronics engineer having worked my way up the scale from a simple engineer to a design engineer and eventually a projects manager.
I re-trained as a Sports Therapist, Sports Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer then added some very specialist training systems such as Functional Range Conditioning (FRC), Active Release Techniques (ART), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS), Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Functional Movement Assessment (FMS), Functional Range Release (FRR), Functional Range Assessment (FRA), Kinstretch, Kettlebell Trainer, MACE Trainer, Persian Yoga Instructor, Functional Training Coach, Strength Trainer, and well the list goes on and on. I added things like Iridology (study of the eyes and their relation to health), Acupuncture, plus Nutritional Therapy for Cancer and anti ageing.
I seriously looked at doing a degree in Physiotherapy, Osteopathy or Chiropractic but it just didn't spark the same passion as following all my other courses, the ones that I thought would benefit people better in my opinion. Nothing wrong with these courses they just weren't for me and I couldn't find anything else that targeted the whole system that I like to give to my clients. In any case I've spent the best part of ten years doing extensive research and training and now consider myself top have a pretty good understanding of the many facets of rehab and training.
I have had my own therapy and training practice for the last 10 years specialising in rehab, strength and mobility training. Exercise wise I've concentrated on the arts of Persian Yoga, Mace/Gada training as used by the Indian Wrestlers, Club Swinging seen in the ancient warrior cultures, and Kettlebell training brought to us by the Old time strong men. I believe this way of training builds a very strong and functional body with less rigidity than when using traditional Barbells, Dumbells and Machines. I couple this with movement therapy drawing on my years of martial arts and adding sprinklings of my training in QiGong, Tai chi and Functional Range Conditioning. I have studied with some of the worlds best coaches and trainers and am still one of only a handful of trained people in the UK for FRC and Persian Yoga.
Ive also added Lifestyle coaching and Nutritional coaching for health along the way to help people fight disease and dysfunction or simply just for weight loss and health.
So if you are looking for a health and fitness coach with the experience as well as the education then please get in touch.
There are no shortcuts, you have to build the foundations first.
