About (Old Backup)


“You can learn more about a person in an hour of exercise than in a year of conversation”- Plato.

My background in gymnastics, corrective exercise, studies in various movement philosophies and more than 24 years of experience has evolved me as a person and shaped the way I train, coach, mentor and teach my clients.

I offer a holistic service that integrates Lifestyle, Intention, Food and Exercise to anyone who has health, fitness or performance goals.

I can coach you if you want to lose weight. My book “The Bottom Line of Fat Loss” serves as a guideline for all daily health needs and a template for fat loss.

I can coach you if you are injured by assessing your posture and muscles imbalances and designing a programme to correct them. My app “5 Animal Mobility” helps people remember the exercises and to self-correct common postural problems and learn life movement patterns.

I can coach you if you want general fitness and just want to tone up and lose weight. My book “ROAM: Movement as Medicine” shares my understanding of movement and how I encourage people who hate exercise to “enjoy regular and varied exercise”.

I can coach you to elite level performance. All you have to do is show up and put the effort in.
