Chad Halford of Synapse Health & Fitness has a goal to improve an industry that is too focussed on generic solutions and not enough awareness that everyone’s needs are different. A weight or exercise program that is supplied without a personal review can potentially do more harm than good as it uses assumed patterns and a workout of the day. We need to place more stress on the personal aspects of fitness. Focussing on strengthening daily movement patterns, decreasing pain, increasing function and making our bodies as efficient as possible without the false presentations of perfection. 

At Synapse, they bridge the gap by assisting therapists to help get their patients back to a more independent life style by providing a safe, educated and methodical approach to fitness.
