Craig Hyslop, CAT(C), BKin-AT

'While you’re still young.'  Craig believes the body depreciates more from lack of use than lack of youth.  At any age, with proper education and guidance, you can: advance your health / fitness, extend your quality of life years, and actively recover from those acute or chronic nagging injuries.  Craig founded Alpine Athletics in 2019 to assist all abilities of the general public; whether your goals include: being able to walk your furry friend again or compete at the highest level in sport.  Away from the ‘office’ Craig fills his time in the outdoors, mainly on bikes and skis.
