John has worked with people from all walks of life, all levels of fitness, and sees clients who present with seemingly insurmountable health challenges.

The desire to improve movement crosses all boundaries and ages – which means we work with any person who wants to improve their ability to move. We work with your average person who wants to move better to those with chronic pain; people recovering from surgery who need to increase their range of motion; to the youth or adult athlete who wants to move more fluidly to enhance their performance in their sport of choice.
Do you find yourself saying ‘I’m just not that flexible’; ‘I can’t move as well as I used to – that’s just a fact of life’; or, ‘If I move too quickly, it hurts’? Perhaps you would just like to improve how you move. The ability to move, your confidence level and self-esteem are all tied together. If you feel you don’t move easily or well – you may find yourself avoiding activities with family members, friends or colleagues. You may even find you don’t function as well at work – even though your work is more mental than physical – because you just don’t feel good about yourself.
What is movement? Movement is a combination of flexibility, stability, strength, endurance and power. If one part of your body’s movement is off – it can, and will, impact your overall motion – possibly even leading to injury and pain. Movement Training By Design’s core premise is to:
Movement Training by Design offers more than fitness. You may be physically fit, yet not move well or easily. Movement Training By Design benefits your ability to move and increases your fitness level while reducing the risk of injury. One of the more pleasant side effects of movement training is reduction or complete elimination of pain.
