Hamish McShane

“Most people who do a lot of exercise, particularly in the form of competitive athletics, have unneurotic, extroverted, optimistic personalities to begin with.(Marathon runners are exceptions to this).”
– Robert M. Sapolsky

about hamish

Hamish grew up playing schoolboy rugby union, competing in the 1500m running event, and skateboarding in his spare time. Skateboarding was fun but dangerous! He racked up an extensive list of injuries. The silver lining: through the repeated process of returning to play after each injury, he was forced to learn how to rehabilitate.

Hamish ended up with acute chronic lower back pain, and to help remedy the pain he set out on a journey of education in rehabilitation and more. By implementing his learnings along the way, he’s now able to live pain-free – and help others do so, also!

training philosophy

As a species we have a history rich in story-telling and community, it is how we have evolved to this place in time. I strongly believe the narrative we need to succeed is the story of our future selves and not of our past. The introduction of such a narrative is how we invoke the change we want, be it physical or psychological.

  2. I used to bartend for many years, which means I can whip up some cool drinks – even though I don’t drink ?
  3. I once swam across Lavender Bay in the middle of winter at night!
