What is The Movement Hub?
The Movement Hub is a place where movement matters. We are Kim Tomlin and Chris Kitson. We’re both passionate about movement and the difference it can make to your life. Over the years we have experienced some of the best (and probably some of the worst!) training and therapy methods out there. Together we offer a unique blend of training and manual therapy that is individualised to your needs, building on our expertise and learning.
We’ve ‘been there, done that’ many times and know what works, and what doesn’t. We are extremely driven and have our client’s and patient’s best interests at heart. We also teach in our retrospective subjects for numerous companies, and spend countless hours on continued professional development every year. Simply put, you can place your trust in us. Movement is important to us and we are making it our mission to educate the nation!
What’s more, we love having FUN! And we want you to have fun and love the journey you embark on. The Movement Hub is a Community of like-minded people. All our members are Hub Heroes.
