AKA The Stretch Coach
The World’s #1 Authority on Stretching & Flexibility
I’m a Health Science graduate of the University of New England and have postgraduate accreditation’s in athletics, swimming and triathlon coaching. And I pride myself on offering the most simple, easy-to-understand “how-to” information on stretching and flexibility.
Since 1995 I’ve been at the cutting edge of research and development into the field of stretching and flexibility. I’ve written more books and articles on stretching and flexibility than any other author. In fact, Amazon has listed my books on 5 of their best-seller lists both in the US and the UK.
I’m often referred to as the Stretch Coach and I’ve even been called the Stretching Guru. I’ve built a reputation as the go-to-guy for all things stretching and flexibility; so much so, that I now sit on expert panels for 8 different companies and Google cites over 100,000 references to me and my work on the internet.
My stretching and sports injury articles have been published in numerous health and fitness magazines and extensively online at sites such as About.com, Athletes.com and BodyBuilding.com. Magazines such as Runners World, Bicycling, Triathlete, Swimming and Fitness, and Triathlon Sports have all featured my work.
I’ve coached elite level and world champion athletes from sports as diverse as triathlon, motor cycle racing, roller skating, squash and baseball. I’ve lectured extensively on sports injury prevention and rehabilitation. And in 1990 I was ranked 3rd in Australia as a junior competitor at the National Triathlon Long Course Championships (2.2km swim, 80km bike and 20km run).
