My name is Javier Dominguez, originally from Spain but now just one more citizen of The World :) My friends know me as Javi Clayton. I’m currently based in Dubai, and besides being a Senior Engineer in one of the world’s largest IT companies, I’m a very passionate climber always looking for challenges to give the best out of me on all diverse adventure sports I practice regularly. I spend most of my days working hard to deliver World-Class IT Support to some of the largest Telcos and Hosters around the World. For the last 16 years I’ve been pushing hard at work to overcome my limits by working towards clear targets with passion and determination. For the last 6 years I’ve been doing the same on my free time out of work, enjoying all forms of climbing (sport, trad, ice, alpine) all around the World, riding my motorbikes on the road and the sand dunes, exploring the desert with my Jeep, paragliding all around the World… but my real passion is High Altitude Mountaineering, and my biggest dream is taking part of complex expeditions to the most challenging peaks on Earth. Speed equals safety in big mountains, and with the help of ISE I’m specialising on fast ascents on either heavy or alpine style. I perform extremely well at high altitude, probably thanks to my genetics, but also to the specialised training I’ve done over the recent years, and incorporating intermittent hypoxic training supervised by Fabien. All together allow me to move fast at altitudes over 5000m, where most athletes suffer from the effects of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). My training goals today are to gain more strength on lower body, back and core, as well as improving balance and stability to be able to move with heavier loads on alpine climbs. I’m also working on polishing my trad and ice climbing skills, and looking to get into cross country skiing this year. My short term objectives are climbing one more big Eight - thousander in Pakistan, and doing my first Ice Cap Expedition in Greenland, Patagonia or Alaska.
" Highly dedicated. Great integrity. Extremely demanding and 100 percent focussed. Fabien has helped me achieve my goals that we set when we first started. Sometimes I tease him and say I am on the search for a lazy coach. "Amal
" Five years ago I met Fabien right in time when I needed therapy for both of my knees after sustaining injury. Since then, Fabien has been working with me and with other members of my family, helping us to firstly learn about how to improve our posture, secondly helped us in bringing awareness to the importance of maintaining certain levels of healthy practices and finally guiding us and teaching us about best practices for future improvements. Fabien has always shown a great work ethos. Indeed, he is always punctual, driven, motivating, and always shows concern even when off site. Many times, I had to ask him to send me guidelines when I had pain and he would always email me websites and best exercises that soon improved my situation. Fabien’s manipulation and therapeutic practices are simply amazing, and he is always on top of research as he brings in the latest discoveries and applied technology while manipulating bones and muscles. Fabien always sets high standards not only for his patients but also for himself, as he always tells about his experience in participating in marathons, decathlons and triathlons. He is a living example of how he inspires his clients to be and to the best practices he tries to apply. Thank you Fabien for everything. "Dr. Grace Chami-Sather
" I have trained with Fabien individually and in a group for ver 3 years. Using his expert combination of plyometrics, metabolic, cardio & endurance exercises, he has helped me to reach levels of fitness, agility and strength I had not dreamed were possible. Training with him is challenging and fun. He is definitely a cut above other trainers in his field. "Loma
" Fabien is the most professional and dedicated coach I have ever met. Three years ago, I visited Fabien for a series of physiotherapy sessions and the goal was to be able to travel, drive and walk without aches and mainly be able to get rid of heavy medication and pain killers. I ended up signed up for the 10kms run after less than a year, exercising regularly and never get bored. I have so much fun even if the session sometimes are tough but Fabien has the talent to have you make it. I would have never thought that I would be exercising again regularly and furthermore, never with such a pleasure. Thank you Fabien for your dedication and endless encouragements! "Naouel
