I took a course in posture, and I was hooked. I could see problems before they happened and caused pain and injury; I could do funky exercises and solve people’s pain it was fantastic.

Some of my clients started to feel better, and I could ignore the ones that didn’t, so I began to fall.
Unfortunately, this was based on me believing the research that I was being presented, which was a problem for me later on.
The Cult of Functional 3D movement
I moved out of the clubs and into education, that is where it kicked off. As I finished my MSc in Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement, I started to notice the industry was becoming a mess. But I chose to ignore that and join a cult!
MSc Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement (Year 1), Chain Reaction Biomechanics and GIFT (Year 1)
This training helped me help people immediately. I could use my hands, people in the industry were talking about me, and as long as I ignored the fact I was making this up, based on the courses I had been on, then everything was great. Some of the results I achieved were incredible, but then some went spectacularly wrong, I never mentioned those though. Safer for my fragile ego not to.
At this point, I also started FASTER, with a genuine want to make the industry better and share my skills as an up and coming guru. I was being asked to present everywhere because the industry liked my newness, confidence and although I was not to realise it yet, complete bullshit confidence in my ability to beat science to an answer.
