From a young age Ian was always Interested in martial arts and after getting his first black belt, he knew the best place to further my knowledge was study in China, so in 2005 Ian travelled to Beijing to and then on to the Shaolin Temple to study martial arts.
He then studied further into different massage disciplines but knew that strengthening the body would prevent as much soreness, this lead him to personal training. After training clients for a few years Ian realised that the mind was one thing that was missing, so he studied the mind, with psychology, counselling and psychotherapy. Ian likes to see the body as a whole picture and this allows me to help a client on many different levels but this by no means will be the end to his studies and Chilli Pilates is helping him greatly with this.
