Born and bred in Pretoria I finished my graduate degree at the University of Pretoria in 1994. During 1995 I was one of seven students selected to do an Honours degree with a specialization in Biokinetics at the University of Zululand.
I was fortunate enough to do my internship during 1996 at the Milpark cardiovascular rehabilitation centre under Dr. Andres DiGenio and head biokineticist Tertia Putter.
After I had officially qualified as a Biokineticist I decided to do some traveling and this unforgettable experience lasted from 1997 till 2001.
After returning from my walkabout I held another intern position at the Technikon of the Witwatersrand in 2002.
In 2003 I joined the team at the Healthy i in Benoni where I was first employed as a Biokineticist and then later as a director of the company.
I decided to go my own way in May of 2005, and thus Stephen Louw Biokineticist was born. When I left the Healthy i, I started practicing in Planet Fitness in Benoni and continued with them up to December of 2011. I did a short spell in the Health World gymnasium in 2012. I have been in my current premises at the Living Studio in Benoni and the Health Club at Clearwater estate in Boksburg since October of 2012.
I believe that I am in a service industry where I need to help my clients get better. I use a scientific approach in the application of exercise as well as in determining the cause of the problem. One size does not fit all and just focusing on symptoms and not the real cause will only lead to recurring injuries.
