ABOUT

Henri (@hcterblanche) is a Sport Physiologist applying his extensive knowledge of human physiology in Strength & Conditioning.

Henri believes that key foundations to a healthy and happy lifestyle encompass being active, strong and mobile. These attributes are within every individual, waiting to be uncovered. He lives these values with his loving wife and beautiful daughters.

Working across a wide array of clients and athletes keeps Henri’s work interesting. From a strength and conditioning standpoint, he specialises in athletic movement and improving physiological performance (strength, speed, endurance, power, explosiveness, stability, etc.)

Having a keen interest in the nuances of exercises and people, Henri helps his clients build solid foundations, instilling sound movement patterns and techniques towards anti-fragility, training consistency and progression. He finds motivation in hearing peoples’ stories and helping them improve themselves.
