Meet The Team

Gray Caws

Gray Caws: Founder & Director

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.

Luke Rose Lead Personal Trainer

Luke Rose: Lead Personal Trainer

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.

I have been working in the outdoor health and wellness industry for 20 years and helped thousands of children and adults become more resilient and achieve their goals through a variety of activities.

Currently I work with, corporates, professional and amateur sport, schools, and individuals as well as organising and leading retreats and adventure holidays.

Elaine Jackson

Elaine Jackson: Coach

With a background in dance teaching, I started running to enhance my fitness but very quickly realised it was more than that.

I found a sense of freedom and space, which was always welcome at the end of a day in school! Over the years I’ve taken part in various events from 5k to the London marathon in 2016, and subsequently qualified as a running coach in 2017.

My passion lies in helping others to progress, to achieve their own goals but more importantly, enjoy the journey along the way.

I first joined Gray on the Costa Brava Adventure in 2018 and I’m still telling everyone about it now!

Kevin Chamberlain

Kevin Chamberlain: Coach

I started running when a friend challenged me to train to run the 2007 London marathon which initially amused most of my friends.

Whilst my first efforts were not a pretty sight, it kickstarted an interest in managing my health, fitness, and wellbeing. I had discovered how to get an amazing sense of freedom and self-worth.

I continued to run a marathon each year and with each year came a new injury that I would need to research and resolve.

I then attended a ChiRunning course with Gray Caws in 2011 which dramatically improved my running efficiency and stopped the injuries. I went on to train as a ChiRunning Instructor and an Oxygen Advantage Instructor to further my knowledge and to help others.

Seeing each run as part of a breath and movement practice was a revelation. I find a holistic practice combining running, functional movement and  breathwork have a positive impact on my personal and working life.

I encourage clients to follow a similar approach using the AIM Run With Ease programme.

I currently run a regular running club in London and I teach the AIM Run With Ease programme to small groups and individuals – breathwork, postural structure and bio-mechanical efficiency.

Real People. Real Results

Thanks again for your very useful tips, your great insights, and your enthusiasm yesterday. I think I was lucky to have you as an instructor. You turned every exercise into a learning experience that was fun to do. You're an excellent coach: relaxed, patient, blending sharp observation with empathy.

If you are looking for an open mind, want full attention, crisp explanations, sharp observation, and friendliness go no further!

Gray changed my life within the first 10 seconds of seeing me run! I have been a serious runner since childhood but had all kinds of injuries. Then in my mid 30s I started getting calf tears more and more regularly. I tried everything to no avail. Someone put me onto the ChiRunning book, which helped somewhat but not completely. Then I discovered Gray. Within 10 seconds of him watching me run he spotted things that no book could. He transformed my running immediately, and each week improves it further. I can now run as far as I like in complete confidence that I won’t get injured. Thank you Gray!
