I was recommended to see Scott in Jan 2017, a year after 3 fractures and minor surgery on my right foot. In the meantime I had only managed a partial recovery – I was up and running, but still with some pain and a noticeably one-sided gait. I also had residual muscular aches in my upper back that had been concurrent with the foot injury.
My aim was relatively simple to say, but not so easy to achieve: to pass selection for the Royal Marines and start training in September 2017.
So my challenge to Scott was not just to get me running pain-free, but to build an all-round fitness and robustness in movement that would allow me to complete selection and the subsequent training.
My testimony is simple – I passed selection (and more easily than I had done 3 years previously, just before my injury) and am now 9 successful months in to training with the Royal Marines. I look forward to being able to update this testimony having successfully completed the Commando Tests, but that will be down to my mental drive; Scott’s work in helping me to get here is done.
I really believe that Scott’s movement based training was very beneficial in developing an all-round “useful” strength – not specialised in heavy lifting or a particular type of strength. This was key for me in my application to the Royal Marines which involves a large range of movements from crawling to carrying or dragging others.Theo Scott
I have known Scott for good few years now and fully aware of his work. So after I finished my sessions with my physiotherapist we both agreed Scott would be the best person to move onto.
I attended physiotherapy due to spinal/pelvis and hip issues and after finishing my sessions I was advised I had to start moving my body as a whole, for 5 years I’ve weight trained and broken my body into sections. Scott was the perfect person to help me with this, due to his incredible knowledge and understanding of movement coupled with his skills in coaching.
After 5 amazing sessions with Scott I was able to get back out running after 5 years, was deadlifting and squatting without any pain. My biggest accomplishment was overcoming childhood fear when Scott brought out the rings and taught me how to forward flip and back flip (Amazing).
Scott doesn’t over coach which I find great, you can get overloaded with information then you end up over thinking the exercise. He looks and finds a way of getting you where you need to be without being so technical.
I would highly recommend Scott 🙂Natalie Reid
I got in touch with Scott back in 2015 initially to help me with lower back pain. Before working with Scott I had seen countless Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Orthopaedic Consultants but experienced no real improvement. I was more than a bit skeptical that I was going to find a solution.
