“I truly enjoy what I do, and the way I share that energy and enthusiasm is through what I do.  But it’s more than that still…..    

 

I have been a professionally active trainer since 1988/89, and for a period of 16 years I was also involved as an athlete in professional sports (skiing & cycling).

The education, certifications, and special training I have acquired to provide the variety of services at SportsLab are not just past experiences, I continue to be very active with independent research.  Over the years I continue to see research and theory mesh with “real world action”.  Working with human performance and the “limits” of our adaptive capabilities, I have seen some remarkable things and still recognize that our true capacities have yet to be discovered in many cases, and to never assume a current state as “done”.

It’s because of working with this vast potential within all of us that has led me to develop the methods in use at SportsLab today.

The training methods  I have developed are not a radically different approach, yet there is a rock-solid, bomb-proof core methodology with a consistency and ease of understanding that you won’t find elsewhere.
