Rehab Trainer was founded by highly experienced Australian Sports Physiotherapist Ulrik Larsen, who brings with him 25 years of injury management at elite and social sports levels.
After years of working with coaches and Personal Trainers, Ulrik realised that one of the main frustrations for Fitness Professionals was dealing with chronic pain and niggling injuries in their clients. Whether it is the re-emergence of an old football injury or the sudden onset of pain while doing a particular exercise, if not dealt with effectively, clients ended up dropping out, creating a hole in the Trainer’s diary and disillusionment for the client.
Ulrik realised the need for some education to bridge the gap between the medical world and the fitness industry, and so Rehab Trainer was born.
