Founder & C.H.E.K. Practitioner
Sevrin Baker is a Corrective High-Performance Exercise Kinesiology (C.H.E.K.) Practitioner who has been practicing in Nelson for the past 15 years. His interest in how the human body worked began when he was coaching community wrestling. At this time he was introduced to a Swiss Ball exercise class run out of the same facility. Through this exercise class new and exciting ways to rehabilitate his own injuries and physical problems were learned. He became aware of how many of the common conceptions of body mechanics and exercise were incorrect, unfounded even. The straight forward explanations made something that had always been daunting (how the human body worked) easy to understand. When this understanding was combined with an impressive increase in his balance, coordination, and strength he was determined to understand more. After a year of observing and training his mentor put him to work training clients having recognized his talent.
Over the course of his seven year apprenticeship under Swiss Strength Coach and Efficiency Expert Ed Feuz, he developed a keen discerning eye and was introduced to the C.H.E.K. Institute. Following his desire to increase his understanding of the function of the human body and how best to revitalize it, Sevrin has taken time to explore numerous other methodologies seeking to increase his perspectives and techniques. He has learned from practitioners of the following fields: Ancient Swiss Medical Qi, C.H.E.K., Feldenkrais, RMT, TCM, Acupuncture, Breema, Psy-K, Touch for Health and ART. His practice has evolved to incorporate aspects of these other practices creating a system as efficient, effective, and painless as possible.
Sevrin, went on to establish his own business and continued to develop his techniques. In 2012, he was approached by the Dean of the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences (an internationally renown academy training Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctors, Acupuncturists, and Herbalists) to instruct the course 'Applied Meridians' with him on a yearly basis.
In late 2016, Jesse Pineiro, a former professional boxer asked Sevrin if he would be interested in working out of his facility. Currently he operates out of the Nelson Boxing Gym & Fitness Center where Pinero, Mateus Dachwitz, and himself aim to create a wellness center.
