Deborah Wilks
Moving Stretch Trainer

As a Personal Trainer I see the importance of integrating my experience with the functional fitness of mobility and flexibility.

So if you’re ready to put a stop to nagging aches and pains, eliminate the mobility restrictions keeping you from performing your best and stop worrying that you’ll have to give up your favourite activities as you get older, or even if you just want to get stronger and more resilient to push your limits and break your PB, I can help.

Assisted-Stretching and Walking Massage Session

I will commence with a walking massage to improve circulation throughout the body and prepare your muscles, tissue and fascia for stretching.

The pressure of the massage will vary depending on your needs and preference but is likened to a deep tissue sports massage which is an effective treatment on its own.

This will allow me to investigate which areas I feel will benefit from stretching the most. This is a very effective way to address a wide variety of postural issues, physical imbalance and tension. The sessions are completely tailored to your body.

I specialise in:

  • GRAVITY which is perfect for toning and conditioning, along with improving core strength and mobility. It is a low impact, safe form of body-weight resistance training, ideal if you are recovering from injury or you haven’t exercised in a while.
  • Moving Stretch®: 121 and Classes is a specific type of self stretching. In all stretching there are two key components; movement and resistance. By engaging our muscles, we also engage the fascia (a type of dense connective tissue) so that when we stretch we can recondition and reshape our fascia, leading to significant and more lasting change.

"EXCELLENT! I have had lower back pain for three years. Just one session with Debs made a difference straight away. By doing the daily exercises I am able to maintain the new reduced pain and increased flexibility. Exercise are easy to fit into everyday life. Fascia stretching with Debs is an investment in my daily well being - worth every penny." Liz Mcdonald

 

"In 36 years of training (and making excuses for not training!) my body has never said thank you every time I stretch - until now. With Debs help, I have refocused my regime by including 'Moving Stretch' to assist body alignment and strength alongside my exercise classes. It has helped me enormously to move more freely and with a lightness of step - improving everything from yoga to spin. After years of driving and computer work my arms were permanently bent at the elbow - no more, thanks to just a few sessions of Moving Stretch. Debs makes the sessions fun but ensures proper alignment for maximum benefit - no cheating allowed! I include a few of the stretches during my day as well, when making coffee or as a screen break. It is easy to fit in as you just need a few minutes for each stretch. We are all different but try it. I think you will be glad you did...." SG
