Ergonomics and Posture
Ergonomics is the science of arranging our environment to suit our body, posture is organising our body within itself for greatest efficiency. These two skills are often ignored but are critically important. Back pain, neck pain, wrist pain, shoulder pain, headaches and so many other problems stem from bad sitting standing and working postures.
We can help you learn to use your environment and body to best effect.

We can also build programs to help you prepare for specific events whether you are returning from injury or simply unsure how to train up to that level, including:
- Half or full marathons
- Oxfam 100km walk
