"I focus on developing our ability to move and perform with control, strength and rhythm. I work towards movement fluidity, whether it is running, cycling or body work practice"
My training is diverse as I integrate and fuse many training forms into one. It is process of exploring the possibility and capability of what your body can achieve that I find interesting.
There is something charming about training contrasts, the contrasts between environments, speeds and challenges which makes them exciting.
I highlight the importance of conditioning your movement first, as this creates the platform for performing physically well. Building space into the joint structures and elasticity into the soft tissue enables the body to move efficiently through 3 dimensional space. Whether you are a athlete or want that joyful athletic feeling to play with your kids. Moving well and effectively is essential for optimal physical well-being.
I work with 3DFT (3 dimensional functional training), which is a concept where we condition the body to move through multiple planes of motion; Such as laterally, forward-backward and in rotation, Research supports the fact that variable movement helps enhances human function and reduces potential injury.
Further more we understand that to develop true authentic functional strength, that has the biggest cross over to sports and life. It is training variability that creates the bigger changes when we discuss human performance. I pay attention to conditioning the bio systems such as control systems, respiratory, and reaction systems, In turn this keeps the body alert and sharp both athletically and mentally. Which is ultimately is what WE all want!
