About Stephen

Born and bred in Pretoria, Stephen Louw completed his graduate degree at the University of Pretoria in 1994. He then went on to be selected as one of seven students to complete an Honours degree, specialising in Biokinetics, at the University of Zululand.


The following year, Stephen was fortunate enough to do his internship at the Milpark Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Centre under Dr Andres DiGenio and head biokineticist Tertia Putter.


After qualifying as a Biokineticist, he spent time travelling, and this unforgettable experience lasted from 1997 until 2001.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”

“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.”

If you aren’t making a difference in other people’s lives, you shouldn’t be in business – it’s that simple.
