Mark Nuttall

Head of Training and Professional Development

Mark has a unique understanding of MUJO motions and training techniques, developed through treating his own extensive history of complex shoulder dislocations combined with extensive physiological and fitness expertise from a highly practical and educated knowledge base. He is a qualified NABBA personal trainer, nutritionist and strength and conditioning coach, and his approach draws upon motivational and training techniques developed during time in the armed forces and policing service. Mark identified the unique concept of MUJO as a way to improve his own condition after he had tried every available option over a 20 year period ranging from military, NHS and private treatment, including surgical and rehabilitation methods, and found nothing that assisted until MUJO.

Mark’s clients include many involved in work-related physical activities, to those with ongoing chronic conditions through to world class professional athletes and octogenarians.
