Conor Sandford

Growing up in Canada, I was incredibly fortunate to have been surrounded by top notch trainers with backgrounds in Kinesiology (study of human movement) and Exercise Physiology, who helped me get the most out of my competitive sports (American football, lacrosse, athletics, skeleton).

This pushed me to pursue my initial degree at the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Human Kinetics (BHKin), which only sparked my interest in how the human body moves. Soon after, I decided to undertake a Fellowship in Applied Functional Science (FAFS) with the Gray Institute in Michigan, U.S, furthering my understand of functional movement and biomechanics. Why stop there though!? I then decided to focus on the rehabilitation side by pursuing my Masters in Sports Therapy (MSc ST) at BNU. All of this education and experience has allowed me to train my clients with a variety of evidence-based research, clinical rehabilitation and functional biomechanics to get the most out of their goals.

I have been fortunate enough to have worked with athletes in the National Hockey League (NHL), Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), American Hockey League (AHL), Western Hockey League (WHL) and developmental ice hockey players.
