I worked with Dean for a summer rehabbing a knee ligament injury. Dean produced a personalised programme that progressively rebuilt full functional mobility in my knee, whilst working on ensuring I was injury resistant moving forward. All in all I entered the rugby season fully recovered and in better shape than ever.

Having combined a semi-professional football career (playing goalkeeper) with being a self-employed builder for many years I developed severe lower back pain due to the intense nature of both. The pain got so bad that I sought help and advice from Dean, he identified some issues with my hip mobility that needed addressing. He provided me with a training programme that improved my overall hip flexibility whilst also building my trunk strength and improving my overall conditioning. Not only did this deal with the lower back pain, it also improved my performance on the football pitch, ensuring that I was fit for purpose both in relation to my football and at work.

I first contacted Dean mid October 2018 because I needed help to pass a fitness test for work which I had previously failed. Right from the first session Dean gave me loads of tips and showed me techniques which helped to improve my running in a short amount of time, so much so within a few weeks I passed the fitness test with considerable ease. His knowledge and guidance proved really helpful and supportive, and we are continuing to work together as I continue my basic training.

Dean helped me build up my fitness base to meet the high standards in the Royal Marines. Working with Dean helped me to overcome the initial fitness tests that qualified me to go onto Royal Marine basic training. Dean's approach not only got me into the best physical condition possible, he also managed to support my psychological conditioning through his ability to mimic the kind of things I was likely to experience during basic training within his coaching style.
