Her personality and expertise have ensured the highest of standards with many of our corporate clients, including London City Airport and Newham Council.

    thorough and holistic approach

    I meet Michelle through Twitter when I commented that I was having issues with a frozen shoulder. When I met Michelle she did a very detailed assessment and asked lots of questions about my pain and movement  - I really liked her thorough and holistic approach. She listened to me throughout the treatment and had a good balance between administering the treatment and making sure she wasn't hurting me. My shoulder felt a lot better after the first session - I was seeing her once a month  before lock-down and my shoulder felt almost back to normal. With the exercises she gave me to do at home throughout lock-down my shoulder is much more mobile and with a lot less pain. If you are looking for a professional and top quality sports massage therapist I would absolutely recommend her.

    patient and understanding

    I have always found Michelle to be patient and understanding whenever I see her for personal training and sports massage. She always goes the extra mile to ensure my concerns are put to rest and motivates me to continue with my training. I always feel brighter physically and mentally after a session with her.

    helped my marathon running

    I've been having regular sports massage with Michelle for a couple of months. In that time she has helped me by identifying problems and helping me overcome them, including IT band releases, tendon problems, and general stiffness from running. Michelle also gave me advice on the best stretches to minimise the impact of marathon running on my body. Michelle is so professional and is always ready to research a pain or muscle group to get to the route of the issue. I'd recommend (and have!) Michelle to anyone for sports therapy and will be seeing her again soon.

    Training for the over-50s

    Training at 50+

    As someone who is soon entering her 50’s I understand perfectly how  fitness levels and health can change with age.  A good level of fitness is achievable at any age – we’ve all seen 90 year old marathon runners who put us to shame – but as is the case for many of us – including myself, health conditions often materialise as we get older and the ageing process starts to slow us down. With this in mind, Fit for Longer is geared towards the more ‘mature’ client aged 50+ to keep them mobile and active with my aim to do just as the name suggests – keep you fit for longer. For your convenience sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home or online.

    Consultation

    The consultation

    The free consultation is a chance for us to sit down and discuss what you want from your new exercise programme. If you haven’t exercised for a long time or have a health condition that is hindering your training we can put together a safe and suitable regime that is specifically tailored to your requirements. Our initial sessions will be focus on your posture, flexibility and stability to ensure that you can move and support your body for your progressive weight training and cardiovascular exercises. This is something that is often missed in personalised programmes but is an integral part of training to help avoid injury and ensure long term adherence. 

    Sports massage

    Sports Massage

    Whether you are a regular keep fitter, occasional gym goer an office worker or a busy mum, a niggling injury or pain can often make everyday movement difficult, painful, or stop you doing things you enjoy. General wear and tear due to the ageing process can also inhibit flexibility and movement which is why a regular sports massage should be a part of your fitness and health regime to help identify and correct postural issues and aid faster recovery from injuries.  A sports massage is the perfect way to keep you in tip top condition and help keep ahead of the game with any muscular skeletal issues.
