FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT EXPERT
  • Certified Functional Movement Screen (FMS) practitioner since 2012. (The 1st in Südtirol). This forms the basis of my assessment and corrective strategies.
  • I also incorporate the principals Functional Stability Training (from CSP) into all my programs.
  • Using these systems allows me to identify and address limitations and weaknesses in order to improve functional performance whilst reducing the risk of injury.
INTERNATIONAL FITNESS MODEL
  • For over 20 years I have worked as a commercial model, specialising in fitness & ‘body’ work
  • Whilst working around the world I have learned how to stay in shape as efficiently as possible, mainly using bodyweight exercises. In the future I hope to share this knowledge and help others how to do the same!

HOME FITNESS SPECIALIST
  • My new HOME-FIT program combines my experience of bodyweight training with the principals of performance training, and functional movement.
  • The result is an effective full-body program that will improve all aspects of your fitness, from body composition & cardiovascular health to functional movement.
TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
  • ALIGNMENT IN NEUTRAL: Whatever you’re training for, it always comes back to the basics. Good posture & movement quality is the foundation of your fitness. If you’re training out of alignment then you are just setting yourself up for problems.
  • PROXIMAL TO DISTAL: Talking about basics, it all starts with the core. Get the core working properly and often the rest sorts itself out. Almost every exercise comes back to the core.
  • DO SOMETHING YOU ENJOY: My training system can use a wide variety of different training methods, including: Breathing Drills, Pilates, Bodyweight Training, Traditional Strength Training, Olympic Lifts, Kettlebell Training, Resistance Band Training, Speed & Agility Drills, Jump Training and more…
