Therefore, movement is a constant practice that presents itself upon us from the moment we are born. It is a milestone for a baby to start walking, but why does it have to stop there? Whether you run, ski, skate, fight, dance, swim, bike, etc there is one common utility: the human body creating movement. This means, that there is most definitely a universal understanding and approach to movement. By learning the basic universal principles to movement with proper applications can pave a foundation to unlocking a new era of unparalleled health improvements than that of traditional modern medicine alone.

"I owe all my knowledge in physical training and fitness to Jimmy. When I first started, I was a complete novice in anything related to physical fitness. Jimmy had to teach me everything from the ground up and he did a marvelous job. He had the patience and passion to check every detail of my exercise form and carry out corrections. He is a great motivator and sees to it that his clients reach their goals. Due to his training, I can now say that I am well on my way to achieving my goals for fitness and my strength levels have increased to the extent that I can now carry out my physically demanding job (I am a woodworker). In fact, I feel much stronger in the overall functionality of my body including my back, hips and legs."
