Within one month I had recouped the cost of the initial investment for the series by a factor of 10X. Not only is my company on pace to have its most profitable year as a direct result of working with Chad, I have a completely re-defined concept of what true wealth is. I cannot recommend this (Mind Architecture) investment strongly enough.
Chad is Extremely knowledgable and experienced. I had scoliosis and then had 4 children, leaving my torso scrunched and nearly immobile. I met Chad after 11 productive years working with other effective practitioners and had been swimming and practicing both yoga and Pilates. Chad did a full-body (skeletal, muscular, neural, and organ) assessment of me, and then we met once weekly for 1.5 hour adjustments (some Rolfing, some neural, and some organ) and twice weekly for 1hour complimentary workouts. The changes were immediate and permanent. In our family, Chad has corrected my scoliosis and skewed hips, my husband's long ago rowing rib cage injury, my daughter's scoliosis and my other daughter's flat feet. He is a genius at meeting people where they are each time we meet. We all were very motivated, and he met us there and helped us be our strongest.
Thank you Chad !
In no time, he became integral to my training process due to the sound and up to date knowledge and experience he brought to our work and the gentle, conscientious professional touch he brought to his teaching style. He is ready to tell you as much or as little as you want to know about the whys and wherefores of what he is asking you to do and you have his full attention, which the tiniest corrections continued to attest to. Chad typically starts the work-outs with you and I enjoyed that opportunity to shadow and imprint his movements during a warm-up as a way to ease into the more focused individual work. I have worked with other professional trainers over the years and Chad’s style of encouragement and empowerment were all the more effective because they came across as realistic and genuine, and insightfully personally customized.
He was always thoroughly prepared for each of our twice weekly training sessions and knew exactly which muscle groups to target for hiking and weight bearing (given my need to travel with a relatively heavy pack) and in which order to train them. There was a comforting and satisfying sense of repetition with which I could track my progress, together with a mounting complexity and difficulty that satisfied me that he knew where he was going with a comprehensive plan for optimizing my fitness in a finite period of time. He also did not hesitate to supplement my understanding with diagrams and links to videos of exercises we were working to perfect. And I have never benefitted from so many types of equipment, from ropes and bands to rocker platforms and machines. Yet it always felt well thought out, relevant, and simply the most effective way to strengthen, balance or align me as Chad’s body-worker’s eye assessed my needs.
Having your personal trainer be equipped to do corrections and alignments in body-work sessions is a huge plus since Chad could bring his knowledge of my body’s asymmetries and compensations from training sessions to bear on targeting specific joints or muscle groups in body-work sessions. He set a gold standard for a targeted and individual comprehensive preparation.
While we watched people succumbing to injuries and dropping out or bussing between towns, my daughter and I hit Santiago and kept right on walking—all the way to the ocean and a total of five hundred and sixty miles—all on our own four feet! Two of which turned sixty! Thank you, Chad!!
With extreme certainty and sensitivity, Chad has cleared energetic blocks and scars, softened the fascia that was trapping muscle sets to one another and to bones unnecessarily. The result is enhanced flexibility and more creative physical control. He is so much more than a trainer or a body-worker; Chad is a comprehensive living life trainer.
Chad is an absolute geek when it comes to anatomy and the body, and his knowledge is unsurpassed in my experience. This knowledge allows him to create an individual program for each person. We only get one body, and if you are serious and willing to pay to get yours in top shape, then you must meet with Chad.
I now sleep much better and awake refreshed most mornings. I owe a lot of my recovery to the work Chad and I did together. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a no-nonsense approach to healing. His system works with the complete human being on a physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual level.
