My health has been impacted by long term back issues and specifically after a fall early on in the pandemic, when it was difficult to obtain physiotherapy for the injury. My condition worsened and eventually led to a lower back herniated disk. Glen was recommended to me as a muscle activation specialist who might be a solution to getting my back and knee into better health and for learning to restrengthen the core as recovery and future stability. In the past I have worked with other personal trainers – but really felt that things clicked with Glen. Overall his background and training seemed to better prepare him to look at the issues from a number of perspectives. Despite the fact of our age difference I felt he understood the mobility challenges my 60 year old body was experiencing. And most importantly was willing to listen and be patient. He took the time to not only explain the procedures we were working thru but why, in plain language, so it was easy to understand. He is solution oriented and so if one type of movement caused pain, he adapted to another movement working the same muscles but in a less painful or stressful way. The result of this adaptability was that it encouraged me to do the homework exercises he recommended as I felt both capable and that I wasn’t going to injure myself further. While I remain a work in progress, I see this as a long term commitment to Glen to continue to improve my mobility and core strength so that as I continue to age, I can face life’s challenges with greater grace. Four months ago it was almost impossible for me to walk from my couch to the kitchen … and while not completely healed I am feeling stronger and getting better rest every day. I credit a lot of that advancement to Glen’s program. His business is aptly named “integrated health” as I feel as a client that he does take the time to integrate many points of learning into his personalized recovery program for me. And he has been good about sharing his ideas and thoughts with my other health care professionals. Anyone who can arrange the time to work with Glen should consider themselves very fortunate as he will support you in whatever way he can thru your recovery and long term healthy goals.
