Jens KielingConsultant
Jens is an expert in picking out all the deficiencies related to stability and movement of the human body. It is in recognizing these minute and tiny details that we are able to correct those areas through consistent training programs. By working those deficiencies, you greatly reduce the risk of injury but also significantly improve the quality of movement. Quality of biomechanical movement relates to performance in sport. Poor biomechanical stability/movement equals poor performance in sport. Excellent biomechanical stability/movement equals outstanding performance in sport.
