Tim Stevenson has been a strength and conditioning coach for 13 years and has spent much of this time working within Paralympic Sport.

Later in 2016 with David Jackson he co-founded the School of Calisthenics. Tim has led the strength and conditioning programme at British Para-Swimming since 2016 and continues to provide consultancy services in both physical preparation and development of the performance system. More recently he has used his own personal experience of shoulder injury and years of experience training athletes in overhead sports to launch a new project, Dynamic Shoulder Conditioning, a specialist coaching and education service that helps strength coaches to scale their athletes’ upper body performance and create truly high performing shoulders.

Jacko is now a UKSCA Accredited Strength and Conditioning coach supporting Paralympic athletes and also works with them using his performance lifestyle experience, sports nutrition and psychology qualifications. He is a certified Performance Enhancement and Corrective Exercise Specialist and has trained athletes to win major medals on the world stage.

Movement is a Lifestyle Features 11:20 Paul Sorace




Moving2Live is a podcast about movement and exercise for professionals and aficionados.  We also have Movement is a Lifestyle Features. Each week, we publish a brief highlight of a 2- or 4-legged mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.  Click MIAL Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

This Week: Paul Sorace

Where do you consider “Home”? New Jersey

What are your three favorite movement activities? Run, Resistance Train, Run

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? Las Vegas, I was the 1:30 pacer for the RnR Half Marathon. I finished in 1:29:58. Bummer.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? What else… peanut butter.

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Shake Shack Burger, life changing! But Ben’s pizza may give it a run…

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I’ve accomplished my fitness goals. Running sub-3 in the marathon. Bench pressing 300 pounds (a long time ago). All relative I get it. At this point in my life, it’s about fitness maintenance.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? “I’m too busy”. We all are, I get it. Take a walk during lunch. Walk the hallway if the weather is not ideal. I did it. My co-workers looked at me oddly at first, eventually doing the same.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Running alone in Death Valley. There wasn’t a sign of life for 100 miles. I was crazy when I was younger.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Sleep!

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) Balthazar. Google it. The best restaurant in NYC. I can get you and Ben a reservation (Covid willing) in 10 minutes. And I have the WiFi that “doesn’t exist”.

This Week: We Want Your Story – Scroll down for our Co-Founder Ben’s story for Inspiration…and we’re not just looking for human stories…bring us your cat tales, dog diaries, horse lore…you are only limited by your imagination…read Lisa’s profile…then submit a questionnaire for your yourself or your animal friend…

This Week: Ben Reuter

Where do you consider “Home”? Home is what you make of it/where your safe place is. Currently ChezR, which is located in the Pittsburgh area

What are your three favorite movement activities? Hiking/trail running with my labradors, mtn biking and gravel biking/fire road riding

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? I don’t know if it is the best, but one of the best was a few days in Salida, Colorado to visit a friend/mentor and his wife. We averaged 4-5 hours of movement a day. Probably the highlight was being able to summit my first 14er – Mt. Shavano. The most memorable vacation, or a combination of work as the medical director and “play” – for a number of years I was fortunate enough to go on the Georgia Games Torch Run- 7+ days of running and biking throughout the state of Georgia promoting the Georgia Games- best memory was drafting behind a police car going up over the bridge to Saint Simons Island on a Friday rush-hour when the sheriff closed down one entire lane of traffic 🙂 thumbs up

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Pre-work out – espresso. Post-workout: ice cold water and something salty if the workout was long

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Pizza; espresso; very, very good quality bread

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? Pittsburgh to DC on the Rails-to-Trails in 3 to 4 days and San Juan hut tour in Colorado

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? Fear…of what other people will think of them or that people will judge them.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Probably the first time I went white water rafting. It was the first time I realized that there was something bigger than me that was in control (i.e., the water)

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Sleep

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) There is a spot in Mingo Creek Park in Washington County, Pennsylvania that has a section of trails through a group of maple trees… It is absolutely phenomenal in the fall – almost as good as an Aspen Grove in Colorado

Movement is a Lifestyle Features 3:20 Lisa Boksenbaum




Moving2Live is a podcast about movement and exercise for professionals and aficionados.  We also have Movement is a Lifestyle Features. Each week, we publish a brief highlight of a 2- or 4-legged mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.  Click FitLabPGH Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

This Week: Lisa Boksenbaum

Where do you consider “Home”? I have moved a lot, searching for “Home.” I’m not sure that I’ve found it yet. I think home is where you feel a sense of connection and belonging. I’m currently living in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.

What are your three favorite movement activities? Hiking (or just walking on the rails-to-trails); yoga and/or pilates; suspension trainer/bodyweight workouts…but my goal for this summer is to move cycling in to the top 3

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? Tough choice! I’m going to go with a two week trip to London (part-work, part-vacation). I walked EVERYWHERE for sightseeing, museum visits, shopping…and tried out several local Pilates studios and other fitness facilities.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Pre-workout snack: homemade energy bites (adapted from a recipe by Kathryn Budig in her book, Aim True). Post-workout depends on the intensity of the workout…sometimes trail mix, sometimes a piece of homemade biscotti.

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. A tie: REALLY good ice cream (like Millie’s, which is made in Pittsburgh) or excellent bread, cheese, and wine

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I have a few: Hiking tour of Scotland and Ireland; learn to ride a horse; and a Rim-to-Rim hike of the Grand Canyon.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? A combination of the misperception that movement needs to be expensive and/or complicated to be effective and a fear of trying something new

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Hiking Camelback Mountain in AZ…followed by the Go Ape High Ropes Adventure Course in North Park (North Hills of Pittsburgh)…heights are not my favorite thing…

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Massage (although I rarely do it), acupuncture, and snuggling with the cats and Labradors

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) The Montour Trail…not hidden, but definitely a gem….and the newly-cut MTB trails at FitLabPGH HQ
