Garrick has been lucky enough to go to many top level sporting events as an athlete and has recently completed his Masters of Physical Education. He focused primarily in rehabilitative exercise and health promotion. "Everyone deserves to feel healthy and move freely. However, I also know that sometimes knowing where to start can be the hardest part. Therefore, as a personal trainer, I find it important to help members really understand what their goals are, and from there ensure they have the tools and help necessary to achieve success."
