Gray Caws

Director of Adventures In Movement, Level 4 specialist Personal Trainer, Run With Ease™ Coach, Buteyko Practitioner, Oxygen Advantage Instructor, Master Kettlebell Coach

"I discovered a passion for health and fitness in 2004. After struggling with niggles and injuries when running, I attended a workshop with ChiRunning founder Danny Dreyer in 2010. This encouraged me to qualify as a Certified Instructor. I also went on to qualify as a Specialist Personal Trainer and Master Kettlebell Coach.

In 2014 I was appointed Master Instructor and Director of ChiRunning UK & Ireland, responsible for the management of ChiRunning across this region. Looking to develop my skill-set further, in 2016 I trained as an Oxygen Advantage Instructor and 2018 as a Buteyko Practitioner with Patrick McKeown.

I became the first UK Oxygen Advantage Certified Instructor, teaching a programme of breathing exercises that help address every-day breathing pattern disorders alongside improving sports performance.

I work with clients on a 1-2-1 basis and also hold regular workshops in London, across the UK and Europe. I also organise and teach new instructors in the Run With Ease™ and Oxygen Advantage methods.

My current personal practice includes kettlebells and body-weight strength training to complement a marathon-maintenance running programme.

I enjoy running marathons and half marathons with my first venture into ultras at the Royal Parks Ultra Marathon back in 2014.

I am director of Adventures In Movement, a health and lifestyle company dedicated to improving people's wellbeing through simple practices and common sense programmes.

I also developed a keen interest in how the body works and how nutrition supports health.

REPS level 4 professional with Exercise Referral and Lower Back Care qualifications.

Over the last 15 years, I’ve worked with a wide spectrum of clients, with a variety of problems to overcome, and goals to achieve. I’ve become familiar with almost all the equipment and gadgets within the world of fitness and exercise. It has been a pleasure not only to assist people in taking a journey to better health and physiology but to share with them my excitement and satisfaction that comes with learning physical control and movement. 

You only get one body, use it, play with it, and enjoy it.

I have a keen interest in biomechanics and the way forces load and react on the body. The three-dimensional spider's web of bones, muscles, and fascia are the keys to comprehending and improving movement and strength. I encourage my clients to understand their own bodies, through self-awareness, and a tactile sense of response to the difference between altering the body to accomplish different activities.

Whether you are simply looking to lose weight or symptoms of pain, or training to play sports or trek in the Himalayas, learning how to move with greater control of your strength and fitness are critical tools.

Susie Willsher

BANT Registered Nutritional Therapist

I have always had an an interest in food and cooking and when I was diagnosed with ‘IBS’ in my 20s my interest in food to took me to look at food as medicine. After improving my own condition through dietary changes I went on to get my BSc (Honours) in Nutritional Therapy from the University of Westminster. I have 10 years experience as Registered Nutritional Therapy practitioner, and have seen first-hand how diet and lifestyle changes can make such a positive difference to our health and wellbeing. I am also on the BBC’s panel of nutritionists and have appeared on numerous radio shows.

Now more than ever it is clear that one size does not fit all when it comes to our health, so it’s important to understand your individual balance. The body is amazingly complex and no one part of it works alone, so I aim to bring together my knowledge of nutrition, supplements and functional testing with a detailed understanding of how food works with the body to improve your health. I work using the Functional Medicine model and keep up to date with current research in health and nutrition. I aim to concentrate primarily on diet but I also have a very extensive knowledge of nutritional products and supplements to help support my patients.
