When he isn’t leading TRX classes in Brookhaven and Buckhead, you are likely to find him enjoying time with his wife Alissa and their daughter Katherine.
In the office, he enjoys helping athletes of all abilities to achieve their optimal performance level. According to Dr. Ward, “A key element to maximize athletic performance is to insure proper motion in the joints of the spine and extremities to coordinate, strengthen, and stabilize the kinetic chain.
When the joints of the spine or extremities aren’t moving properly, that joint and the other components of the kinetic chain are affected and performance is impaired.”
