An Olympic Marathon runner Peter put his body through huge training routines regularly running over 160 miles per week. Injuries,aches and pains were the hallmark of this routine. Living and training in Canada, Florida, Mexico and Barbados, with many altitude training camps in Boulder USA, Toluca Mexico, Peter understands that maintaining optimum performance requires regular body work to maintain fitness and wellness. Maher Sports therapy is a composite of these experiences. Daily use of Hydrotherapy pools in Florida to ease out the aches and pains after grueling training sessions, are vital in keeping suppleness. The use of Saunas to prepare the body for training as a passive warm up and additionally to recover post activity. These are vital in aiding the body pre and post training. The benefits of both are important in maintaining suppleness and flexibility, and also aid in preparation and recovery. These diverse methods coupled knowledgeable hands on therapy had the net effect of allowing Peter 19 marathon victories with a personal best of 2:11:46 in the world cup London 1991.
Through study and working with therapists such as Gerard Hartman, and Aaron Mattes in Gainsville, Florida, during 1990, where this proved to be a valuable learning curve. In working with, Mr.James Waslowski, and completing three sports injury educational videos, was an honour and hugely influential. Anatomy Trains developer, Mr. Tom Myers has had a big influence. So my personal influences are drawn from both being recipient and student and now for over 15 years a practitioner, from a diverse and excellent reservoir of personal experience and knowledge.
