Athletic & Training Background

I grew up on a healthy diet of Football (soccer) and Rugby. For the past few years I have transitioned to barbell sports, competing in Olympic Weightlifting .

Current Role Working with Athletes

I currently work as a Physiotherapist at CrossFit Central London providing services to a variety of athlete's predominantly Runners, Weightlifters and CrossFitters. In addition to this I work as an assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at Performance Hertfordshire with national and international level athlete's from a variety of sports including Squash, Golf, Football, American Football and Swimming.

Professional Philosophy

My mission is to empower my clients with knowledge and exercise to gain independence and achieve their goals. I see Physiotherapy and Strength and Conditioning as opposite ends of the same continuum. Athlete's should be provided a service that identifies where they are on that continuum and challenges them appropriately as they progress from rehabilitation to performance based training.

**Currently working towards becoming an Accredited Strength and Conditioning Coach with the UKSCA to develop my skills in this area and compliment my Physiotherapy knowledge.
