With a prominent background as a contemporary dancer in Australia and the UK, Peter has trained his body to the highest level in his field and always had an interest in injury prevention, treatment and ensuring the body is able to achieve what you ask of it.
A healthy interest in sport led Peter to his award winning dance career and in the past 8 years, he has returned to recreational sports, playing competitively and internationally as well as accessing varying training modalities and health genres.

He can identify bio-mechanical influences from sports and activities as well as employing rehabilitative practices to redress imbalances and promote a more efficient body for future action.
