Gareth and James both have a background in high level acrobatics and movement having both graduated from the National Centre for Circus Arts. Gareth toured internationally and James coached elite level gymnasts.
They have always been interested in what creates a truly adaptive and adept human capable of complete control over their body.
This led them into the world of neurology and how important the brain is in the experience of pain and restriction.
Learning to apply neurology and mobility movement techniques during their own recovery journeys has led Gareth and James to understand that building a truly functional body with healthy movement patterns at any age requires neurological input as well as physical.
It doesn't matter if your goal is rehab, skill based, strength or flexibility.
Our primary focus at The Nerve Guys is developing the nervous system in movement.
We look at movement training through a neurological rather than a biomechanical lens.
After training with both the Academy of Applied Movement Neurology and Z Health (world leaders in movement therapy) we focus on helping others improve their overall health, function and abilities with a brain first approach.
We have adopted principles from many training systems to provide well rounded training encompassing both the brain and the body.
Our courses build strength, flexibility and movement capability, whatever the starting point to allow you to move in whatever way you want, confidently and consistently.

The human body is amazing and can achieve almost anything. Small steps done consistently can take your ability to move well to new levels of freedom. I have suffered shoulder and back problems from years of gymnastics and honestly though I would never really move without pain. Our approach to movement training has shown me you can teach an old dog new tricks with the right guidance.
This approach to mobility training has changed my life after a serious back injury. I spent a year unable to move and lived in constant pain. I never want anyone to experience same fear of moving I had. It's my goal to help everyone see they can improve their quality of life and pain levels by improving how they move. It doesn't matter how old you are or your previous injuries, everyone can learn to move pain free.
