Ask The Expert: Alfred Ball, Lifemoves Health and Rehabilitation

Alfred BallThe first Ask The Expert piece was hosted on AccessAthletes.  The second one was done here at SAB.  Now, we are back to AccessAthletes with a new expert: Alfred Ball.  Ball, a registered Kinesiologist, Facial Stretch Therapist, and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, is the Founder and President of Lifemoves® Health and Rehabilitation, a health, fitness, lifestyle, and rehabilitation company based in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia.

Alfred was asked 10 questions and responded with very extensive answers for every single one of them.  Strength and core training is important not only for all athletes, but really for everyone.  As agents, we may find ourselves sitting at a desk or on planes for long periods of time.  Alfred’s wisdom can come in handy for a wide variety of people.  He also provides some good advice on the challenges of starting up a business.
