"At some point we all moved properly and pain free and my focus is bringing us back to that point in our lives."

Synapse helped me transform my health, guiding me towards the most strength and flexibility I have ever had in 50 years of my life. Chad's knowledge and experience were the primary reason I was able to recover completely from an acute tear to my hip joint that required a hip resurfacing surgery. His approach to rebuilding strength and awareness of movement in my leg is remarkable to me on a daily basis. When I tell people I have a metal hip they are in disbelief! It's great to be trained by someone who truly teaches and knows what they are doing!
