Hayleigh Gouws – Biokineticist
Being a gymnast for most of my life helped me develop a certain respect, control and fascination for the human body. My love for Biokinetics started then.
I was a national gymnast for 12 years, when I became a Gauteng coach and now still a Gauteng judge. I work closely with the South African High-Performance Gymnasts as their Biokineticist. I enjoy working with and have worked with many children and hope to focus on the ‘’High Performance Child Athlete’’. Another one of my interests is neurological rehabilitation whereby I have done Biokinetics combining hydrotherapy and land-based therapy for the best results. I studied a BSc Sport Science at UJ after which I attended WITS where I completed my Honours in Biokinetics.

Luke Steggman – Biokineticist
Sport and physical activity teach us so many valuable life lessons and it certainly taught me many things growing up. I learned to face hardships and adversity, about humility, teamwork, communication, and dedication among other things.
After a school career filled with enjoyment on the sporting field and having had opportunities to travel, represent my province and learn valuable life lessons through sport and physical activity, I decided that studying and choosing a career where I could give others a similar opportunity, was fitting.
Initially, I coached waterpolo and rugby at Jeppe High School for Boys after school and began studying sports psychology to understand the mental side of sports better and to help others cope and learn from this. I qualified as a Biokineticist in 2011 and was excited to be able to offer others an opportunity to help them get healthy and experience the enjoyment and benefits of sport and physical activity.
I really enjoy working with sports orthopaedic injuries and poor biomechanics. Secondly, I enjoy helping young children who are suffering with certain abnormalities preventing them from participating in activities or limiting their level of participation.
