Marathon, half-marathon and multiple 5Ks and 12Ks are part of Dr. McMaster’s athletic history. He played both Hockey and Rugby Football at the University and continues to have an interest in personal fitness and body efficiency. Both education and personal experience have provided Dr. McMaster with a strong background to teach the very basics of personal wellness – the proper walking gait.
Using his wide-ranging knowledge and education he is able to pinpoint specific areas of your walking gait that may cause problems with shoulders, back, hips, knees and ankles. Walking engages the entire body and, when done poorly, puts added stress on joints and ligaments. With just a few changes, you can experience incredible benefits of reduced pain, reduced athletic injuries and improved muscle development.

Nate Grigsby, Personal Trainer
Nate graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Exercise Science covering areas of weight training, exercise psychology, applied anatomy, kinesiology and bio-mechanics. He is also a NETA Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified DNS Exercise Trainer.
DNS stands for Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, which is a manual and rehabilitation approach to optimizing your movement based on scientific principles of kinesiology. This core stability improves athletic performance and reduces your risk of injury in everyday movements. The approach is not achieved purely on adequate strength of the core muscles, but rather on a precise coordination between the muscles and intra-abdominal pressure regulation.
Incorporating all his training, Nate is able to offer professional coaching for postural strengthening, breathing and core activation, endurance challenge of specific muscles to improve performance deficits and help you control transitions between body positions to improve your movement stability.
These functions help improve athletic performance and reduce your potential for back pain after sitting for hours at a desk chair. Through learning to control and coordinate your movement you protect your joints and maximize structural performance of your joints, muscles and tendons. Each of these help with recovering from injuries.
