Steven is a Medical Exercise Specialist which means he has the knowledge and skill to work with clients with a wide range of medical conditions.  Steven is trained to develop safe and effective conditioning programs for clients with musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, or metabolic disorders.  Medical Exercise Professionals can not diagnose disorders but work close with doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and physical therapists.  Medical exercise is often called post rehab as it follows physical therapy or after the acute state of a condition and uses exercise to manage medical conditions.

Steven is MovNat level one certified. MovNat is a physical education & fitness system based on the full range of natural human movement abilities. These include the locomotive skills of walking, running, jumping, balancing, crawling, climbing & swimming. In addition we practice the manipulative skills of lifting, carrying, throwing & catching. How we move is how we train.
Having a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition gives me the knowledge to give you the best nutritional information possible with expertise in physiology, superfoods, herbalism, metabolism, juicing, detoxing, and orthomolecular medicine. Most trainers have a certification to train but not every trainer has a degree and certainly not in Nutrition which gives me a wealth of knowledge to assist you in reaching your goals.

“GRIP Approach is a comprehensive rehabilitative system that offers a global (full-body) perspective.”

The acronym stands for Global Rehabilitation & Injury Prevention. GRIP defines the connection between seemingly disparate elements of human physiology and movement and how to interpret these elements for improved clinical outcomes. GRIP incorporates the neurodevelopment movements of developmental kinesiology (Vojta, Janda, Kolar), current fascia research (Stecco, Schleip, Vleeming), and modern pain science (Moesley, Butler) into a workable, exciting, and highly effective rehabilitative approach. We outline Functional Range of Motion (fROM) and demonstrate how to achieve it with the fewest steps and maintain it for performance.

When you treat and train utilizing a global perspective, as GRIP teaches, you eliminate the body’s sensitivity to movement very quickly. As you learn to use a single intervention to achieve a global change, you will see a resolution in many of the areas that previously would have demanded additional focused treatment. This saves time and improves your effectiveness on a wide range of cases. By focusing on gains that can then be sub-cortically integrated, GRIP Practitioners see long-term improvement in their patients and athletes. The old adage of ‘time spent in examination saves time in treatment’ rings true for many. We like to say ‘Accurate examination leads to efficient treatment’. GRIP Approach teaches the clinician how to accurately read the entire body with a select handful of simple tests. As GRIP Approach helps you master ‘The Big Picture’ of how neurology, biomechanics, and pain science intersect, you will improve your management of complex cases and use of current therapeutic tools/methods.
