He currently hosts a TV talk show and proudly volunteers his services for a number of local charities and not for profit organizations:
- Ovarian Cancer Walk of Hope in Hamilton
- Canadian Critical Incident Stress Foundation (a charitable organization dedicated to the prevention and mitigation of disabling stress for Emergency Service Workers and the prevention of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- The Escarpment Project (an organization dedicated to improving the health of the Niagara Escarpment)
The reason I am developing this website is because after becoming a Registered Massage Therapist in Hamilton, Canada, I was working out at the gym and noticed how many people struggle in pain during their workouts... and not the good kind of pain. Even the trainers have been unable to help them. Some of them are also experiencing pain and its just not necessary. Since then I have made it made it my mission to educate trainers and athletes beginning with common musculoskeletal injuries and how to avoid them or self treat them if they do happen, in order to save a lot of recovery time and money.
I truly care about people and if someone is willing to come and see me and wholeheartedly work at improving their health I will do my best to help him/her.
Step one is teaching people the muscles of the human body which are contained in this website. (or at least will be once I have finished construction of the site.) Feel free to have a look at the links in the Muscle Essentials section. There are unfortunately no images yet but will be eventually. Oddly step one in learning the muscles is learning directional terms and body planes, followed by the bones and their surface markings. I will be adding video footage of it all in the coming weeks both here and on my Instagram.
Feel free to follow me on Ig @greglenko and until then…
