The fitness industry’s most influential specialty area award goes Down Under

The BioMechanics Method Correcitve Exercise Specialist of the Year award is the fitness industry's most coveted and respected accolade.

The BioMechanics Method, the highest-rated provider of corrective exercise education for health and fitness professionals with specialists in over 40 countries, is pleased to name Veronica Sutherland of New South Wales, Australia, as the 2017 Corrective Exercise Specialist of the Year. This prestigious industry award recognizes an individual who is certified in The BioMechanics Method, currently providing corrective exercise services to clients/patients and has demonstrated exceptional application of their functional fitness and corrective exercise skills.

Veronica, who holds numerous certifications in corrective exercise, functional movement and neurology, is a Pilates and group fitness instructor based in Orange, NSW, Australia. As the owner of Pilates Movement and Therapy Studio, Sutherland specializes in the integration of corrective exercise into group fitness classes as well as providing corrective exercise training for individual clients who experience lower back pain, knee pain, neck pain, plantar fasciitis, and other forms of musculoskeletal pain caused by body alignment issues. In addition to working full-time with clients at her studio, Veronica co-owns of one of the largest and most successful Curves franchises in Australasia. She also works with her local government council to bring corrective exercise to the workplace. “Health in the workplace is a very rewarding arena”, says Sutherland. “I am able to give the ‘desk dweller’ the tools required to finish every day stronger rather than a little weaker.”

As the 2017 Corrective Exercise Specialist of the Year, Sutherland will serve as a spokesperson on corrective exercise for The BioMechanics Method. She also receives a cash prize, an education package from PTA Global, memberships with leading health and fitness organizations IDEA Health & Fitness Association and Personal Training on the Net and equipment from TRX Training. “Veronica’s ability to bring corrective exercise into group settings makes her an exceptional corrective exercise specialist”, says Justin Price, Education Director for The BioMechanics Method. “Her teaching abilities are outstanding and bring solid results.”

Veronica has extensive experience in corrective exercise and continually updates her skills to improve the service she offers. Thankful clients who have worked with Veronica have this to say about her: “Apart from Veronica’s professionalism, keen interest and love of her work, her strengths lie in her capacity and ability to relate to others at their level and her holistic approach to functional fitness training”.

“I am very grateful for the recognition and humbled that this has come from an organization I have long admired”, says Sutherland. “My studies in The BioMechanics Method have had a significant impact not just in my one-on-one client relationships, but in all my Pilates classes and choreography of group classes.”

The runners-up for the 2017 CES of the Year award were Adriano Melikardi of Chicago, IL and Thomas Anglin of Gaithersburg, MD.
