“Be the weirdo” Ido Portal.

For a long time now I’ve been known as the“weird mobility guy” in all the gym’s I’ve worked in. The guy with the strange shoes, doing the funky warm ups, but there is method to my madness.

Im a teacher of movement, its my obsession and I love it.

I have spent most of my adult life exploring the human body and how it works, pursuing as many different styles and disciplines of exercise as I can, constantly trying to deepen my understanding through practice and play.

My approach to training is the sum of over 10 years of experience in the industry. I prioritise movement efficiency, strength and longevity above all else, giving my clients an understanding of how they move and the tools to maintain their bodies on a daily basis.

My sessions could be described as “strength and mobility training”. I will teach you how to move correctly, load correctly, mobilise your joints, organise your body, and build strength, control and stability. 

Everyone is unique, everyone moves differently. Whether your goal is to build powerful Glute's and a strong core, or just cure some back pain, with my guidance your body will thrive regardless of your age or ability.


Since 2016  I’ve been studying the FRC training method, and am now qualified in both Function Range Conditioning + Functional Range Assessment. 

Developed by world-renowned musculoskeletal, and human movement expert Dr. Andreo Spina, Functional Range Conditioning (FRC®), is a system of joint health, and mobility training based on scientific principals and research.

Using these protocols I can assess your entire body, and quantify each joints individual movement capacity. Based on these scientific principals I can  make the decision on what exercise's I choose to progress you with, and we go from there...

Do you have an injury? Or struggle with daily pain? Are you doing anything about it? 

The human body is amazing, infinitely smarter than we give it credit for. If you invest some time into it, I can teach you how to both understand the pain, and how to remove it. You will be amazed how quickly the body can respond when given the correct input.

Many of my clients first came to me with pain and dysfunction, such as Arthritis, knee pain or a bad back; that they had just learnt to live with. Every single one of them had the same cure, strength and movement practice.

Take the initiative, invest in your body. Nourish it with the correct stimulus and allow your body to heal and progress to a stronger version of yourself.
