SCW became our Exercise Physiologist at the end of 2019. As an ex-Service person, I have a few injuries due to my service, and my wife and I are not so young anymore. Our EP was great in setting up an exercise program for each of us and for the both of us, taking into account our fitness levels and health concerns ... and the assistance has worked! Thank you! We look forward to being able to continue our fitness journey with you.
I have been working with SCW for over 8 months, working on my core strength and balance shortcomings. I have found them to be great instructors who explain why we do certain excercises and what areas and muscle groups we are working on. Concise, to the point and drives you hard but gets the results. I like him for the results.
