John Miller is about 5’10” tall, about 83Kg in weight and about 66 years of age. He lives in Canberra, bush capital of Australia, so named because when ever you drive anywhere and you don’t have your street directory on your lap or a Tom Tom on the dash board you get bushed!

He’s about your average level of fitness and can run about 45 laps of the 20m run course in five minutes. He can do about a good minute’s worth of situps, pressups and squats.

He’s had a crook back, a very crook back and if you’ve got one he recommends you go to the the Global Back Care website. It will be the best investment in your musculo-skeletal health you’ve made in a long time.

His vaulting ambition is to have the CrookBack Clinic run in fitness centres world wide and advance the fitness industry to the front line of health care for the personally-generated metabolic and musculo-skeletal dysfunctions.
