RECOVERY.

Your body is designed to heal your injuries. I'd like to guide you along the healing process so that you have the best shot at a full recovery and pain-free living.

PREVENTION.

Many injuries are predictable, and thus preventable. Learn the art of reading your body to help you avoid injury.

PERFORMANCE.

Discover your weak links and learn to address them to improve your performance. Link-up with a coach in my network so that we can work together to avoid injury and meet your performance goals. 


 

Services are available at Ground Up Climbing, your Squamish home, and most recreational areas and fitness facilities.


My APPROACH

I want you to come away feeling empowered and ready to tackle your recovery, prevention and performance goals head-on. Science and research informs my approach, while simplicity guides my teachings. You'll be involved throughout the process to help you get the most of our sessions. 


The Process

1. The process is the same whether you're looking to recover from injury, looking to prevent them or wanting to improve performance metrics.

2. I'll start off by determining your goals and expectations. From there I'll perform an individualized assessment to help us determine what we should focus on. 

3. Once we know the direction we're headed we'll discuss ways of getting there. We'll then lay out a plan using your goals as a compass to guide the way.


My Commitment

1. I'll use the best available science to guide you through the process. 

2. I'll check-in frequently to make sure we're achieving your goals and meeting your expectations.  

3. I'll do this by staying transparent and honest, and by treating you with integrity and respect. 


My Expectations

1. I expect you to play an active role in the process. 

2. I want you to ask me hard questions -- the more you ask the more you learn. 

3. Come prepared to be challenged, to feel frustrated, and to feel rewarded and accomplished.

4. Most importantly, come prepared to gain a new understanding of your body.  


PREPARING FOR YOUR FIRST

1. Reflect on your goals and expectations for the visit. 

2. Think about your injury, your pain, your perceived weak links or performance barriers. Write down any questions that come up.

3. Gather any imaging reports (e.g. x-rays, MRIs), surgical reports, program designs or training schedules.

4. Wear clothing you can move and exercise in. 

5. Bring a pen and paper, smart phone, or camera to help you take notes, pictures or videos.
