After 13 years working in Media Sales with Channel 4 Television I decided it was time for a change and started to explore my lifelong interest in sport and fitness. I have always been a sport lover and believed passionately in the positive role sport plays in society and our communities. I understand the need for good training and physical health, because in my busy working and home life, running was my ounce of “me time”. However, in 2010 there was a hiccough. Through over-training and dysfunctions in my movement, I developed a very painful injury that required several surgical procedures. After weeks of pain during my recovery, I lost motivation and my stress levels began to rise due to the demands of every-day life. I decided at that point that if I needed help to rediscover my love of running after injury, then others did too.
My journey lead me to qualifications in Sports Psychology, Personal Training, Fitness, Biomechanics and Sports Massage Therapy, building the foundations to treat clients suffering from a multitude of contraindications. Many, it seemed, were not athletes but had similar backgrounds to myself; office jobs that leave them with pain in their upper and lower back, legs, pelvis, neck and shoulders.
During my career I’ve had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients’ in their homes, offices and sports clubs to improve their movement. It has been a pleasure to work alongside physiotherapists, busy injury clinics, celebrities and professional sports people. I’ve been honoured to donate my services to the Manchester Titans American Football Club, Bolton Rugby Club, World’s Strongest Disabled Man 2016 and many others.
Motion Sports Therapy have been working on both myself and the Manchester Titans American Football Club ensuring our athletes remain fit and healthy throughout our season. Stuart has been fantastic treating a number of our injured players both pitch side and in a clinical environment.
