For 13 years I was a professional contemporary dancer. During rehearsals in 1995 I landed badly and tore a knee ligament and meniscus. Following a surgical tidy up, and drawing on my own knowledge of movement training I did my own rehab and got back to performing in rapid time. After helping a few others recover from injuries, I decided to take it further.
In 2002 I qualified as a Physiotherapist and went on to work in the NHS, military and in pro sport, ultimately as Head Physio in premiership rugby. I soon realised that most of the injuries we were seeing were because of underlying faults with basic movement patterns. Things only got properly fixed and injuries resolved when we spent more time focussing on fixing the underlying movement qualities of athletes. I later qualified as a strength coach and began to integrate the concepts of moving well and gym work with weights into a logical continuum.
In 2009 I Started PhysioConditioning and began to deliver the SuperMonkeySystem (SMS) of natural movement training and performance development.
Since then we have gone from strength to strength, building a growing reputation for producing exceptional results for a wide range of clients from fitness keen Joe Public right up to World and Olympic Champions Ben Proud and Ruta Meilutyte.
More than 30 years of experience with human bodies, injuries and movement, has allowed us to develop a unique approach to physical training. SMS reboots our primitive physical connections and liberates us from the restrictions of a modern lifestyle and environment. We learn to rediscover our ancestral strength, agility, mobility and balance.
Im in my 50s now and in the best shape since my 20s thanks to my SMS training.
