A man of humble beginnings, Dr. Romanov became a star Track & Field athlete, a champion with several records in high-jump standing unmatched for years, coached champions, conducted a significant body of scientific research, wrote two groundbreaking books on technique & training as well as published numerous scientific papers, and started a revolution by pointing out Gravity as the leading force in human movement.

DR. ROMANOV’S MISSION
Dr. Romanov’s mission is to advance the science of human movement and make it useful to people. As we age, it becomes more and more obvious that a preventative medicine approach is the best way forward. While everyone insists that an active lifestyle is the answer, nobody talks about injuries that prevent people from staying active if proper movement is not taught or learnt. Dr. Romanov set out to provide people of all walks of life with simple and easy to follow instructions on how to move properly to enjoy an active lifestyle and to avoid getting injured.
