The C.H.E.K Institute’s approach to functional exercise and optimal health was developed by the founder, Paul Chek and is based on his 30 years of clinical practice working with clients from all walks of life, as well as his diverse educational background as a Holistic Health Practitioner, Neuromuscular and Sports Massage Therapist. Paul’s methods are truly holistic, viewing the body as a system of systems – a fully integrated unit where physical, hormonal, mental, emotional and spiritual components must be considered.
At AOK fitness we undertaken a variety of different C.H.E.K. courses and are qualified as a C.H.E.K Practitioner and CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach.
