During his time at Back in Action and more latterly back at the Princess Grace Hospital, London, he worked with more clients without traditional physiotherapy problems but who required specific fitness coaching (including personal training) or health and wellbeing coaching. A particular speciality was personal training case management for clients seeking to undertake major physical challenges such as running a marathon or ultra-events such as the Marathon des Sables across the Sahara Desert. He also treated more complex rehabilitation clients and those with chronic pain, often referred to him by junior colleagues. His post graduate training (other than his formal University qualifications) reflected this alteration to his client group with training on diet, hydration, refuelling/rehydration, strength and power training, cognitive behavioural therapy, endurance training and the psychology of athletic performance.
Following a variety of external influences, he had the opportunity and motivation to set himself up in business and the idea of Super Fit was conceived.
Simon has worked successfully with a wide variety of clients over the past 23 years including amateur and professional athletes, clients undertaking significant fitness/physical challenges, clients with multiple health challenges as well as regular, more traditional physiotherapy patients.
