Personal Trainer, Don Wolvington, Sante Fe, NM

Don Wolvington has been Rolfing since 1977 when he attended the Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO.  After his certification, he moved to Portland, OR where he continued his practice until the sunshine of the Rockies lured him to Santa Fe in 1995. 

Soon he began personal training himself and felt the profond changes in his structure and realized the benefit his clients would get from core training in conjunction with Rolfing.  In 2000 he started Core Connection with David Henry. He is passionate about skiing and mountain biking.
