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 […]

10km swim – done

Corrien came to see me for Biomechanics Coaching because she had this amazing goal to swim 10km. I was very excited – to be part of somebody’s plans for a big goal like this is always a delight!

Corrien swims using the Total Immersion method of swimming. There is a lot of movement required in […]

Race report – Bosbaan Triathlon Olympic distance

Last week I sent out the following in my newsletter leading up to the Bosbaan Olympic distance triathlon, taking place just a 15 minute cycle from home.
I’m exposing myself a bit in this month’s newsletter.  The reason is that I am writing this before my last triathlon of the season and I really don’t like […]

Back to running 10km

Christien came to see me as she had heard about my Biomechanics Screenings and wondered if I could help her.

She had been running for a while and when she decided to move up from running 5kms to half marathons she started to experience injuries. She has successfully ran 4 half marathons despite the occasional […]

Why I became a Biomechanics Coach

After being a Personal Trainer for about 5 years I was satisfied and happy with my work but I had the feeling something was missing. I had clients who weren’t able to move in what I learned was good form and then other clients who had “perfect form” that could still get niggles and […]

Race report – Wormerland Triathlon

It was a couple of weeks back that I completed the Wormerland Sprint Triathlon, my first of 2017. I had originally planned a different triathlon  that day which was then cancelled, leaving me quite disappointed. Luckily I found another on the same day and the same distance, and that was also not so far […]

My longest injury free streak

I started running back in 2004 (or was it 2003?). I started exactly how I now recommend runners should start. With a simple programme where for the first week you run 1 minute, walk 1 minute x 10. Strangely my memories of this was doing it in the dark and I had no idea […]

As Take That sang – “Have a little patience”

The start of the triathlon season has taught me the act of being patient.  Reflecting on last year I often found myself constantly low of energy because I started the season too soon after I had run a marathon and there were a lot of things going on in my life.  I therefore decided to […]

Be a rebel – take the challenge

As you will no doubt have realised if you follow me, I am always trying to encourage people to sit less.  Today I take the challenge to get off your butts.

We are designed to be hunters and gatherers but there has been a relatively recent change in human behaviour. We now sit more, we are […]

It’s love!

 

Since changing the direction of my services from quite a generic Personal Training Service to focusing more and more on movement I have found myself in the enviable position of having a job I love more and more.

More than 2 years ago I qualified as a Biomechanics Coach and this has been a real […]

She is a Nutrition Therapist and has created a space to help share her knowledge on how to slowly change habits to improve health, happiness and nutrition. Joyce has asked me to write a […]
