About me

I am Thomas Maeseele, a qualified physiotherapist with a passion for everything involving movement. Because of my passion I have been teaching ski-/ and snowboard lessons with the Austrian ski school in Vorarlberg and was involved in fighting sports (Shin Gi Tai Kempo) for 10 years, although I focus mainly on rock climbing and mountain biking nowadays. In my spare time I also practice yoga and am involved with hiking, horseback riding, slack lining, running, scuba diving and surfing.

During my studies at the Free University of Brussels (VUB), I worked at the Stellenbosch Academy of Sports (SAS) with athletes from the Western Provence Rugby Institute and South African National Rugby Sevens team (Springboks). I was also employed in Cape Town at the Sports Performance and Rehabilitation Center (SPARC) with surfers, climbers, trail-runners, cyclists (road and off road) and Ghost Ultimate frisbee Club.
