I approached Cyle for training and mentoring sessions in the neurologically based performance enhancement and personal training system he is schooled in. Cyle went above and beyond to assist me in not only working on my injured ankle, but helping me deal with the mental and emotional concerns that training would be painful or re-injure me. In the beginning, I could barely do a lunge pattern without cringing. Because pain-free reps are the only reps allowed in his training, Cyle scaled back all movement until I was able to develop the confidence to move into more athletic positions without a grimace on my face! In other words, easily and effortlessly. His combination of patience, knowledge, experience, hands-on coaching, and willingness to try new approaches to my movement problem (which was partly mental) eventually took me from tiny lunges into entire lunge matrixes that included multiple directions, angles and foot positions. It is interesting to note that much of the work Cyle did with me to alleviate pain, discomfort, stiffness and immobility, as well as fear, was not in my ankle. Visual (eye movements) and Vestibular (head movements) work was just as important in creating progress as precise movements of the injured ankle joint. Cyle explained this in easy to understand terms that made sense to me, although the actual neurological principles are relatively complicated to the uninitiated. All I cared about was that it worked. In addition, Cyle gave me breathing drills, opposing joint drills (wrist) and unilateral drills to correct some other imbalances that were inhibiting my performance, and therefore my range of motion and experience of pain. I actually have better balance and posture as a result. I can also hike again. (My original injury was a severe ankle sprain that took place on a hike.) The brain-based training was-without a doubt-faster, more efficient and more fun than any other training or rehab work I have done. Cyle was always prompt with emailing feedback and homework, as well as arriving on time for appointments and answering questions. He was very good at keeping in touch and following-up. I appreciate that very much. Some trainers I have either worked with or observed appear bored and disengaged. Cyle was just the opposite. I could tell he cared about me and in some ways, I think that sets the stage for healing and recovery when you are hurting. Thanks Cyle!
