Radio Toni Every Day Business with Grant Wood

Woodzie’s Story

Grant is a qualified P.E teacher and massage therapist with more than 40 years’ experience in the health and fitness space. Earlier in his life he played provincial-level rugby in New Zealand and was a high-performing adventure, mountain and endurance runner.

As a result of these high-impact activities he suffered significant and debilitating injuries in his early 40s, including herniated discs, hip flexor and neck problems, and issues with his knee and ankle joints. The extreme pain and loss of function he experienced set Grant on a new course looking for exercise that was effective in building strength, mobility and flexibility with low to no impact.

Grant’s wide ranging research of global fitness trends has resulted in a program influenced by yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, martial arts and cardio. His diverse repertoire of exercise blends these elements into a fitness package that builds core strength, flexibility, mobility and endurance in a challenging yet fun way.

As a therapist, Grant has more than 30 years’ experience in advanced massage and remedial techniques including trigger point release and origin-insertion treatment.
