Brendan Irving

Brendan grew up in the Illawarra practising martial arts and training in dance from an early age. He relocated to Sydney in 2004 to study and graduate from both the Talent Development Project and the National Institute of Dramatic Arts.
A growing obsession with the beauty and complexity of human movement led him to the Fitness Institute of Australia for further study and he has thrived on making the eastern suburbs of Sydney stronger and sexier since.
Now an accomplished professional aerial acrobat and a student of the Ido Portal Method, Brendan’s training focuses on enhancing the functional strength required for performance based movement. His specialised programs focus on function over form in pursuit of strength, mobility and movement quality.
Brendan is the Founder and Head Coach of ‘The Movement Academy’.

As an accomplished professional aerial acrobat, Brendan’s training focuses on enhancing the functional strength, mobility and movement quality required for performance based movement.
