Wade always does his best to lead by example, making sure that he can perform and excute rehabilitation exercises just as well as his athletes. He puts a lot of focus on rehabilitation and works on what is not commonly focused on in general strength training. He believes that physio is all about teamwork between his patient and himself. Being a professional athlete himself he understands the mindset and discipline required by his athletes to perform at the highest level.
