“I first met Adam 10 weeks ago, after deciding I was going to be 50 soon, and was sick of feeling old and decrepit. I have always been hypermobile and quite strong too, but after a few major surgeries and another traumatic event, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Like many people I was told, to do this but then not to do that, my core was weak as I had been cut through my stomach, blah blah blah… Eventually, I was told by a senior specialist physio I would have an uphill battle for life, as I needed to decrease mobility for the hypermobility, yet increase it for the fibro……. Yeah right…so how do I do that; ‘well possibly walking in a swimming pool?’
So after a few months of whinging and feeling sorry for myself (very unlike me) I decided to research. Before I even started I spotted a Facebook page with Adam on, and just thought I have nothing to lose….
So initial meeting….mmmh went away and thought some fairly negative and possibly unkind things, (Yes I have apologized to Adam now!)
But come on a week of cold showers and the dreaded foundation exercises……what on earth is the point of that? How the heck is that going to change me?
However, my 8 weeks are now finished on a one to one basis, and can I tell a difference? Oh yes I can. Week two I lifted Geoffrey, didn’t even blink, because I believed I could. (He is a 120kg tyre, just in case you’re wondering)
I can honestly say, hand on heart, how hard but how rewarding it has been. I feel encouraged, challenged and spurred on by Adam, who God help him gets an ear bashing, thumped in the leg and swore at twice a week, but the fun side, the encouragement and the belief he has in me keeps me going.
I don’t feel 50 in my head, so having a body that feels the same can only be a bonus”

I’ve had a lot of emails lately asking if there will be any more road shows this year. At the moment I have a lot of projects going on including the book, the hypermobility exercise DVD and looking towards expansion. With all of that being said, I have decided to do one last roadshow, which, in all likelihood will probably be my last. Due to commitments, I can’t travel too far this time so I have capped the workshops to Scotland, the North-West,  the Midlands and Wales as there have been lots emails from there.

Each workshop slot will be 2hrs in duration and cover everything I would do with a regular workshop. Although condensed; you’ll be getting exactly the same including a follow-up regime to follow at home and unlimited remote support from me for as long as you need it, to get the results you desire!  If you are committed to recovery and not just simply interested; a workshop is for you!  Due to the travel element, all fees are non-refundable as that’ll be contributing towards travel costs, venue hire and accommodation. However, due to the travel element again, and seeing multiple people per day, the workshop fee is £100 instead of £180.

Booking needs to be done via email and it has to include: – Full history (diagnosis, medications) – Pain levels – Detail any surgery/surgeries – Detail current involvement (e.g. Physio)

Remember that slots are limited and once they’re gone, they’re gone – and this time it’s for good!

Get booking and see you soon.
