‘Warwick is here to help improve your health through Movement.’

 

Background

Warwick has always been a mover, childhood sports such as baseball, soccer and surfing were a big part of his life growing up. A gap year (which became multiple years…) working in ski resorts saw him living and snowboarding in the Colorado Rockies where he undertook his first Pilates class; following this the seed for Movement Health was planted.

His movement education began with the study of Remedial Massage, followed by Exercise Science and Pilates, the common thread being a desire to learn more about health and human movement. The culmination of Warwick’s formal education was being awarded a scholarship to undertake a research project; the final thesis was awarded First Class Honours.

 

Qualifications

Professional Interests

Exercise and aging

The topic for Warwick’s Honours thesis involved older people, physical activity and falls prevention, undertaking this project has reinforced the value of movement positively affecting the health of older people.

Pilates

Joseph Pilates was well ahead of his time and if he were alive today would have been an outstanding Exercise Physiologist. Warwick is interested in how Pilates aligns with contemporary exercise science.

Chronic Pain

The neuroimmune system is such a fascinating part of our movement anatomy and Warwick enjoys working as part of a pain management team providing pain education and counselling clients on the positive role exercise pacing can play in their pain experience.

Physical Culture

Warwick has an interest in the Physical Culture movement which emerged in Europe during the 1900’s, this movement emphasised a calisthenic style of exercise and encouraged individuals to engage with their own health. The foundation for modern Gymnastics, Physical Therapy and Physical Education was cultivated during this time.

 

‘Warwick loves living on the beautiful NSW Mid Coast and can often be found surfing and exploring the surrounding environment.’

“I am a 67 year old reasonably active person with some knee problems and a few other issues, and sought a referral from my doctor to Movement Health to see if Warwick could help with some remedial fitness training, some weight loss and some tummy conditioning. After a few months I have lost the extra kilos I did not need, my waist is reduced, my general fitness is much improved and I feel good about my health. I am walking over 250 minutes a week and also playing golf twice a week. By way of example I recently had cause to travel by car interstate over five days and was sitting for over 32 hours. My lower back was  hurting and after my regular session with Warwick it came good again and there are no residual issues. Thank you Warwick – I am happy to recommend you and your studio to those who feel they need your expertise to assist them to enjoy good health.”
