DAN CARTER

Nutrition coach, professional development coach
BACKGROUND
I have always been inquisitive and active: playing sports, pulling things apart and putting them back together, trying to understand how things work and how I can make them better. The sports I engaged in as a child and teen fuelled a passion for technical knowledge and performance improvement. When I was working as an apprentice mechanic, I started Muay Thai kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, so in both my trade and my leisure I was seeking to understand the intricacies that helped me improve my performance. To supplement my training (and give me options after I finished my trade), I studied to become a Personal Trainer as well.
I joined the Army in 2011 in an effort to create meaning and feel like I was contributing to improving people’s lives, somewhere in the world. It was during this stage that I started to really fire up in my passion for training, whether it was in the gym lifting stupidly heavy things, out on the battlefield running and crawling through contact drills, or helping some of my buddies get past their injuries and improve their health and fitness after they, or I, had seen a physiotherapist.

In 2013, I started to sustain multiple injuries through my back, shoulders, and ankles. I saw 3 different physios in 3 states who all gave me different diagnoses of the issues, and I felt lost and confused. In 2015, I ended up seeing a great sports physio who was able to identify my movement patterns which were causing my problems. It was through this physio that I started to really understand how everything is linked together in the body, and I was disappointed as I realized I shouldn’t have had to see multiple professionals to identify how my poor biomechanics were causing these issues. My passion for solving movement challenges and building the bridge from injury to activity was born. In 2016 I started Revamp Personal Training, a rehabilitative functional strength and conditioning business which integrates with Allied Health Professionals in supporting patients from the end-stages of their initial rehab, back to full function and performance in their daily lives. I became qualified in Functional Training, Boxing, and Rehab FX which reinforced that the training methodologies and techniques I had applied with my patients are not only effective but supported by evidence and AHPs in practice.
