Travelers Rest, SC 29690
As an exercise physiologist, I have always been interested in human movement. That interest has lead to studying aspects of human performance, whether for sports or just the activities of daily life. This has allowed me to work with various populations in all aspects of pain and injury rehab, improving strength and mobility and improving the functional ability of the individual I am working with.
To further my education I return to school in 2008 to a 40 week mentorship in an area of movement science call Applied Functional Science through the Gray Institute. The focus of the program is to understand what ever joint and muscle in the body is doing during any given movement and how to correct dysfunction when it does not do what it should, which generally results in pain or ineffective movement. (i.e.: the inability to load the hips in the golf swing leading to low back pain would be an example) I am now a facilitator for that program. In 2011 I completed another 40 week mentorship in the Gray Institute's PCM program.
I have also co-authored a book entitled Training for Speed, Agility and Quickness with Human Kinetics Publishing. It has been translated into 7 languages and has sold over 100,000 copies.
I have had the honor to have spoken at the national level at fitness and health conferences and have sat on the Journal Review Board and the Conference Committee for the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
