What makes Chris Walker different is his approach. He focuses on correcting movement patterns, from stability, mobility and motor control.

“It’s all about creating a stronger foundation for life” he says.
Chris enjoys anything active –  from hiking, to kettlebell flows and barbell training, he embraces all types of training that challenges and strengthens movement patterns.
This is at the core of his personal training program.  By correcting the body to perform better for longer, participants can expect to see improvements not only physically but mentally as well.
Established 6 years ago in Orange (Central West NSW), he successfully runs training sessions both face to face and online with a global clientele across Australia, UK and Europe.  A stint in London gave him the chance to train actors through a private studio.

Tempo Speed for Control of Movements ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Are you performing your movements at the right controlled tempo 💁🏻‍♂️ ➖ What is tempo?… ➖ Your tempo is the amount of time it takes on each section of a movement, such as a deadlift – 1 second up and 2-3 seconds down, this is a basic tempo that people usually use. ➖ If you constantly throw your weights up and down or perform a movement to quickly, you’ll have no contraction and most of the time you stop working on your actual motor control, let’s say you are performing a Bodyweight squat and you are rushing the movement and not thinking about where different parts of your body should be and a example would be – knees collapsing in because your not focusing on externally rotating your hips which turns your knees out. ➖ More control of each exercise means faster progress to your goal, take your time with each movement and focus on keeping the technique perfect with each second 💪🏼
