Taylor-PollioTaylor Pollio

  • Phone: 828-442-2121

Taylor began his career as a fitness professional in 2005 at Philadelphia Sports Clubs. Having certified through NASM and ISSA, he worked mostly with the Optimum Performance Model to ensure safety and appropriate progression of training for his clientele. Taylor knew though that with a more individual specific system of training and a more diverse skill set, he could get greater results for his clients and become a greater professional in a changing industry.

Taylor’s search for the ‘perfect system’ brought him to study Ki-Hara Method of Resistance Stretching. Ki-Hara emphasizes the development of strength simultaneously within flexibility. This revolutionary stretching system has been widely promoted by Olympic swimmer, Dara Torres. Taylor studied directly under Dara’s trainers. After completion of his Ki-Hara training, Taylor spent a month at SomaVeda College for Natural Medicine where he became a certified Thai Therapist. This gave him a greater awareness of the body/mind/spirit connection and awakened him to Energy Therapies such as Reiki and Breath Work Integration.

Taylor’s most recent work with the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) allow him to assess movement patterns and muscle relationships before designing an appropriate exercise program for any individual. His work with Anatomy in Motion deepened his understanding of movement and gait even further. Taylor currently offers private customized training and group classes in Movement Awareness, Functional Mobility and Gait Training.
