“I started working with Mike over a year ago following a broken leg and resulting in a lot of muscle loss.
Wanting to get my running back up together and with a place in the London marathon I started with a number of strength sessions and running analysis so I could run in the most efficient way.
Once I was back running Mike also done a weekly bespoke training plan to get me through the marathon resulting in a 3.28 finish a year after my injury.
Since then I’ve still been doing weekly strength and conditioning sessions to make sure I stay injury free. Can’t recommend him enough especially if you’re a keen runner, experienced or not”
Dan Mellor – Lordshill Road Runners
“I have been working with Mike now for 6 months wanting to improve my strength and conditioning whilst running. Having been a runner for a number of years, strength and conditioning was always something that scared me. I thoroughly enjoy my sessions with Mike, he guides me through each exercise and explains exactly where I should be working. My running has come on leaps and bounds, my form has changed and I am a lot stronger. Having a PT who understands what is needed for runners is key and Mike knows his stuff! Fun sessions and some fantastic results”

“Although I’ve only been going to see Mike for a few months, I’ve already seen benefits in this time. I feel stronger towards the end of hard training sessions and races as he has helped me identify weaknesses, baselined these and targeted them as areas for improvement.
His sessions are varied and engaging and so they are enjoyable as well as productive. As an experienced marathon runner, I would highly recommend!”
Marcus Green – 2;35 marathon PB
“I worked with Mike to build strength and reduce my risk of injury whilst training for the London Marathon. It worked! I managed 20 weeks of training with no injuries and feel fitter and stronger than ever!!
I wanted someone specifically experienced in running, rather than a general PT, and Mike’s background made him the ideal choice. As well as the physical exercises, I appreciated being able to discuss my wider training, and his belief in me lifted my confidence.
The strength training, combined with the running mileage I did, meant I started the race relaxed & with an “I can do this” attitude – and finished it happy I’d done my best!! Thanks Mike”

“Mike has been incredibly helpful to my progress this track season. He’s worked around my training schedule and has come to my house to be as convenient to me as possible.
During the massages he’s talked through what he’s doing and why to help me with my own knowledge and given me stretches and foam roller techniques to do myself. This has aided my recovery in training to have my best season to date”
Will Bryan Southampton AC
” Mike has been performing regular massage for me whilst I’m training for Berlin Marathon. Having weekly massages has enabled me to sustain a high volume of training whilst recovering well. Mike is highly professional, listens carefully and adapts each session to specific niggles and issues that arise each week. The best thing about Mike’s treatment is that he knows when to apply pressure. This ensures that he alleviates any deep tightness without having a huge impact on your body such that you are unable to train. I’d highly recommend Mike to anybody looking for sports massage treatment!”
Dan Cunnington Winchester & District AC
“Only started seeing Mike recently but have been excellent sessions focused towards my specific needs and sport. He is very adaptable too. If I have a race coming up he will cater the session based on this and also with regards to post racing. Definitely recommend Mike, he focuses on when you need sports massage and not when he can fit it in. Five Stars from me!!”
” I had a course of treatment with Mike over a period of 3 months while I was injured from running. He greatly assisted me with my recovery from an ongoing knee injury, from making sure all muscles were in top shape and condition for my recovery work and he advised on exercises to do that would speed up my recovery. I’d go to Mike with any issue sport related and he’ll know the solution. An all round top guy and excellent sports massage therapist!”
Keir – Birmingham University
“I’ve seen Mike through the summer to assist with preparation for and recovery from athletics and now the same for hockey. He combines his sports therapy knowledge with his coaching experience to provide a very professional and rounded service.”
Colin – Head of PE
“Mike offers great treatment, particularly in the buildup to a target race. He gave me things to try in training to improve my running as well as effective massage on any niggles/soreness I have. I was able to stay injury free throughout a tough training program and achieved a great Berlin marathon time as a result. Thanks Mike, for all your help!
George Winchester & District AC
“I met Mike in my local gym and soon signed up for some personal training sessions with him. I wanted to shed a few pounds, get fitter both physically and mentally.
Each session was high intensity but every time I felt great and knew I’d been pushed. Mike’s advice on diet and exercise was second to none. As a result of Mike’s time I’m now looking and feeling a lot healthier and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”
“I love coming to strength sessions each week and I struggle to imagine not doing it in the future. I feel strong, flexible, empowered. I have listened and taken on board what I have learned about nutrition during the sessions and improved my diet for the longer term. I look at the things I can do now and I would never have believed that I could ever be able to do those things. This year, as you know, I ran my first 10km ever, and our sessions have contributed to that through strength and determination and encouragement. So thank you!”
