I was first referred to Heike by my therapist after having had complications with a hip replacement which resulted in having further surgery for revision hip replacement followed by 2 knee replacements.

I must stress that as a 70+ person who has avoided physical exercise sessions and using the gym on a very ad hoc basis, apart from socialising with friends for coffee, I was not as candidate for a Personal Trainer, and had the view that a Personal Trainer was for people wanting to have fantastic figures or run marathons.

How wrong I was, since working with Heike over the last couple of years I just wished I hadn’t had such a narrow minded view.

Heike assessed my medical history and ability before providing a tailor made fitness program to meet my needs.
Although I still have restrictive mobility my core strength and flexibility is much improved.  Heike encourages me to achieve things I would never have imagined I could achieve.  Following my knee replacements Heike encouraged me every step of the way and I can assure you it was a difficult program which at times I felt we would never get to the stage I am now.

We continued our sessions via Skype throughout the lockdown, but I do look forward to getting back into our old routine at my home.  I cannot recommend Heike enough not only is she very professional she is an amazingly kind and compassionate woman .  I just wish I had met her years ago who knows I may have run marathons.
