PHILOSOPHY

Exercise is the strongest medicine on the planet."

 

The caveat to that is that the exercise has to be appropriate for the individual, absolutely bespoke. I provide a structured approach to assess, treat, manage and progress my clients through the use of objective selection of exercise.

 

One of the key elements to my work is communication; really listening to my client and working together as a team to achieve their goal - be that living life pain free or reaching peak physical performance in their chosen field.

 

Highly regarded European Tour Winner Eddie Pepperell probably sums it up best:

 

Rob is exceptionally professional, both with regards to time management and level of care. You won’t leave until he sorted what’s wrong!

 

From my perspective as a golf professional and having had back and wrist issues in my career before working with Rob, he has helped me eliminate all pain through good movement and a better understanding of what the problem actually is. Therefore, my self-diagnosis has also improved.

 

He is one of the best.”
