What is it you’re training for?

Nature has a natural progression: Mobility leads to stability which in turn sets you up to build strength. But today we rarely see this progression.

The essence of Motus is the sweet spot where mobility, stability and strength meet. It’s where you relearn how to move with confidence and precision.

About me.

I have a rather eclectic background. I am classically trained as an aerospace engineer, but what I do today, I call “Body Engineering.”

After spending 8 years in a cubicle environment I started to have some problems – epigenetic scoliosis, a stress fracture in my foot and just about every running injury you can shake a stick at. But when I started to apply my engineering mind to my own body it started to become clear that redundant training and specialization in my activities was regressing my body’s natural movement. Something was missing.

I then discovered a whole new world of the health and fitness community.

Long story short, despite 5% body fat and a six pack, my body’s movement was a mess.

I started thinking differently. And it has now become very clear to me that being a generalist and doing a little bit of everything is the key to moving well for years to come.

Let’s work together to become strong, lean and happy people.
