"My vision has evolved from simply training my clients to educate them and inspire a step onto a higher performance plane”
Whether it is that they want to straighten up their posture while standing or moving, or get rid of that nagging ache that’s now become a part of their life, or just to get rid of that saying, “it’s just old age” and want to be able to move comfortably like an adolescent, he is driven to spread accurate and actionable knowledge to those in pain and those who are pain-free for the sole purpose of better movement in everyday life.
He thrives for the self-improvement of others. Using the Functional Patterns methodology at its core, Charles combines self-myofascial release with postural correction and three-dimensional exercises for better posture and movement awareness for his clients. These methods boost biomechanical capabilities by analyzing individual movement patterns before applying correctional measures for higher quality everyday movement.
Way back when
“My personal journey in the health industry started in my early teens with a background in athletics, field sports, weightlifting and gymnastics.
After a lifetime of being active and always a member of the gym, there were always nagging aches and pains. How could this happen if I was always “looking after my body?”
Enter Functional Patterns. The answer was about how efficiently I was looking after my body.
Taking into account what anthropologists have confirmed that as human beings we evolved to stand, walk, run and throw respectively. All Functional Patterns training exercises are then based upon the ability of improving and mastering those four functions. Whether there is a need to build muscle for a specific reason, move in 3 dimensional spaces for sport or everyday life, improve chronic pain, or correct posture, using gait as a fundamental base line has helped me and my clients achieve their goals.
