CHARLES SWETTA - HUMAN BIOMECHANICS SPECIALIST

Charles had been an athlete his entire life competing in multiple sports. He began weight training at a very young age. 12 years later he realized that linear training methodologies such as traditional weight lifting, powerlifting and gymnastics did not seem to transfer over to a 3 dimensional context for sustainable and efficient performance.

His interest in analysing and addressing relative human movement for sustainability soon followed and a need developed when he completed his Functional Patterns Level 1 Qualification.
Charles addresses dysfunction that opens up the gateway to dynamic posture while moving in a 3 dimensional environment.
