What our Clients say – Google reviews
I’ve always been motivated and had no trouble going to the gym. However, after over a decade of doing weights I noticed I started to have some lower back problems. After doing a bit of yoga, I did start to develop a higher interest in my flexability, rather than building up my muscles.
After seeing Paul, I was amazed at the science/knowledge that Paul had in regards to a person’s core strength and how much lack of awareness I really had about this. My body had become stiff like a ruler, I was so inflexible. I actually never properly engaged my core or my glutes and how this really affected technicque in so many common place gym exercises. I suspect a lot of guys have these same issues, we’re not normally taught these types of things.
Before seeing Paul, I used expensive personal trainers which I now realise a lot of have no depth in terms of how a personal actually engages their core and/or if a person is putting too much load on ones lower back and their general flexability.
The programs are difficult for a reason, but really challenge you and you can feel your body really getting stronger in so many ways that you have never even with not lifting any weights.
The science and depth behind these guys is really valuable, they are really passionate and a real benefit to the Health and Fitness industry.
Stay Tuned Osteo’s, Physio’s & MYOS have kept me on track and injury free during my health & fitness journey. Highly recommend!
Very friendly and nothing is to hard. They go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. I have 8 years up now and still continue to go there! Great place.
They do a great job and really seem to care about you.
