Unlocking movement for greater performance!

Chloë’s unique approach for rehabilitation and performance training goes outside the traditional model and aims to enhance sport specific mechanics and physiology by correcting imbalances before they affect performance, and developing skill training which both eliminates the cause of overuse injuries in endurance athletes.
The athlete becomes stronger than the demand of the sport.
To endure is to perform
