1. Movement Therapy
Exercise specialists and personal trainers need to know how to safely perform a number of different exercises. They also need to understand the impact those exercises will have on a person's physical health. Exercise specialists have specific qualifications, knowledge & expertise to be able to work with people who have been affected by disease or chronic illness/injury and their objective is to help improve the person's physical health through exercise. Personal trainers do not usually work with people who have medical conditions unless they have studied additional qualifications . They focus on working with clients that have specific health & fitness goals.
Below I have outlined the type of exercise rehabilitation & personal training I offer.
Over 15 years as an exercise specialist I have built up an impressive portfolio. I hold specific qualifications within exercise medicine enabling me to work alongside health professionals in cardiac, stroke rehabilitation, back care, pelvic floor restore and exercise referral.
Exercise rehabilitation is bespoke to every client; duration, frequency & type of exercise will be dependent on the presenting issues. On enquiry a health questionnaire & information will be gathered. During the initial assessment I will outline the options & you will be clear on the process & expected number of sessions.
Some clients will have a rehabilitation programme devised by myself & work through at home or in their local gym & attend check ups monthly, other people attend the clinic 1-2 times per week, everyone is unique but from the assessment it will be made clear. To enquire please click below.

'Michelle came into my life when I had hit rock bottom. She made me realise my potential and chase my dreams. It's because of her I had the courage to follow my dreams and do what I am passionate about everyday. Because of Michelle, I have also managed to reconnect with old friends and I have made lots more. My confidence has hit a new high and my life has been filled with more 'well that didn't work out did it' than 'what ifs', Michelle and her aura are incredibly contagious, beautiful inside and out. I feel honoured to know her and have her in my life;. - Nadine
