What to Expect at a First Session

I’m really proud to share this video that we created recently. I wanted to make something that helped take away the uncertainty of coming to see me for a screening for the first time. My plan is to send this to clients before they come to see me.

This process allows me to find out what exercises […]

Toploper! Me?!? Schoorl Half Marathon

It wasn’t my intention to write a specific blog on the Schoorl Half marathon. However, I was so pleased about how it went that I thought it deserved its own spot in my blog.

Boston Marathon Training Update

Earlier this month Boston Marathon were showing on Facebook and Instagram that they had already painted the finish line. At the moment I don’t feel the finish line is quite in sight. But training is definitely going well and has included a cross country.

MAF Training for Boston Marathon
