The Philosophy of Conditioning:
Through my expert knowledge of functional anatomy I focus on conditioning the body through training of movements to prevent injuries and improve performance. Fundamentally, the aim is to ensure the sessions are ‘functional’ to you, based on your posture and whatever your sport or desire may be: beating a PB in a triathlon, getting stronger or improving your wellbeing and posture.
Why would I improve my posture?
Posture is not only static, in fact it is synonymous with musculoskeletal balance – it is dynamic, fluid, alive, functional, and aligned. Dynamic posture as demanded by many athletic activities requires many transitory postures being performed and efficiently transitioned resulting in increased functional strength, force production and motor control. For movement to be efficient, muscles must be recruited in patterns that mirror those demanded by the sport or activity resulting in optimum firing frequency.
Consequently we will incorporate multi-joint and multi-plane work with high proprioceptive demand in a fun and progressive environment.
I use science to investigate sports techniques, seeking ways to improve athlete performance and reduce injury risk. For the non-sporting clients I focus on improving their movement patterns and posture to relieve stresses and improve energy levels which results in fat loss and improved muscles tone and mass.
What that means in practice:
I carry out a full biomechanical screening to observe dynamic muscle imbalances.
I will ensure a structured development based on scientific foundations – not guesswork – using your personal biomechanics, injury history and sporting requirements.
