Don Armand - The Gaming Athlete

Don Armand, Founder of The Gaming Athlete

Don has recently retired after spending nine years playing rugby for Exeter Chiefs and now channels that drive and passion into helping empower others through his business, The Gaming Athlete.

Having played rugby at the highest level for so long, Don knows the importance of movement; and utilising the expertise of trained professionals to ensure your body functions at an optimum level.  The Gaming Athlete endeavours to educate gamers on the importance of maintaining health & wellness during sessions whilst providing equipment designed to improve your performance.

Throughout the workshop, Rachel will not only perform an Intrinsic Biomechanics assessment of Don but also discuss strategies for maintaining physical wellness during time spent at a computer.

I'm really looking forward to introducing more professionals to Biomechanics Education and the impact it can have on their clients. Assessing Don, identifying movement limitations and suggesting ways for improvement will be a really unique way of showcasing what Biomechanics Education offers.
