#HighFivesAthlete Update, David Hewel!

David has been crushing his recovery and working hard with Performance Trainer, Chris Cloyd in the healing center. Now at a pivotal time and making leaps and bounds David has increased his work load by adding sessions with Jack Powell.

“Motivated by two trainers, David will be making amazing progress!” Jack Powell aka #JackTheTrainer


Reno native, Hewel was involved in a speed flying accident at Heavely Resort in South Lake Tahoe, Calif. In June 2014. Toward the end if his flight, Hewel was surprised by a strong gust of wind that sent him and his parachute into the air causing him to crash-land on his back. Hewel was immediately rushed to Renown Medical Center in Reno, NV where he was told that he had suffered a burst-fracture of his T-12 vertebrae.


Background behind Head Trainer Jack

Having a diverse background, Jack moved to Maui, Hawaii to study a specific form of rehabilitation called NeuroKinetic Pilates with the world famous trainer Alejandra Monslave. Since that experience, Jack has brought that knowledge back into the Healing Center, cultivating clients around the country.

He now provides personal training sessions for not only #HighFivesAthlets but to Community Members as well. Get a taste of #JackTheTrainer every Tuesday for Tip of the Week!
