I am incredibly grateful for the exceptional support and guidance provided by my personal trainer, Simon. As someone with a rare muscle disorder, finding a trainer who could accommodate my unique needs was a daunting task. However, Simon exceeded all my expectations.From the very beginning, Simon took the time to thoroughly understand my condition. He not only designed a tailored fitness plan to suit my requirements but also conducted his own research to ensure that every aspect of my training was safe and effective. His dedication to helping me achieve my goals has been truly remarkable.Simon is a master communicator. He explains every exercise and technique clearly, making it easy for me to follow along. His ability to make me feel comfortable instantly has been invaluable, especially given the challenges I face. Despite my struggles with certain techniques, Simon's patience never wavered. He continually encouraged and supported me, allowing me to progress at my own pace.Overall, Simon’s professionalism, expertise, and genuine care for his clients make him an outstanding personal trainer. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking personalized and compassionate fitness guidance.

I am hugely grateful for all the amazing guidance received from Simon.When I arrived at his clinic I suffered with extremely painful hips due to bilateral tendonitis.After only a few physiotherapy and personal training sessions with Simon everything started to feel a lot better! After 6 weeks I no longer had pain in my hips and lower back.Simon is incredibly knowledgeable about all things health, body and fitness.Thanks to Simon I developed a deep understanding of my condition and how to manage it effectively.I would highly recommend Simon as both an incredibly knowledgable and passionate physiotherapist and personal trainer.It really takes your health and fitness to the next level when you can combine physiotherapy and personal training with the same person.Thank you for all your amazing work!

Simon is great! I needed support for injuries sustained while training for a half marathon and he was a huge help. Really clear communication in our sessions and he sent a clear plan for me to follow afterwards. Highly recommend!
When I first reached out to Simon, I was grappling with excruciating knee pain that limited my mobility to just about 10 minutes of walking. Despite three months of physiotherapy via NHS, there was little improvement. Fast forward six months of working with Simon, and the transformation is astounding. Not only have my knees ceased to hinder my daily life, but I now effortlessly tackle a minimum of 10,000 steps daily. I can now enjoy leisurely hikes and really looking forward to the festival season this summer - I had to give it a miss last year due to to my low mobility. Simon's tailored program has massively broadened my horizons. Beyond addressing my knee issues, his holistic approach has fortified my entire body and enhanced my range of motion. What sets Simon apart is not just his expertise but his dedication to educating and empowering his clients. Every exercise and technique is meticulously explained, leaving no question unanswered. Simon's vibrant personality adds an extra layer of enjoyment to our sessions, making each one not just productive but downright fun. Starting from rock bottom, I've been transformed into a dedicated gym-goer, and it's improved every facet of my life. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Simon to anyone seeking a life-changing fitness journey.

Simon is an exceptional physiotherapistI first saw Simon for treatment on my lower back. I have chronic back pain that impacts my day to day activities.From the initial consultation, Simon was very proactive and was able to provide relief through hands on treatment, then set out a clear plan to address my issues.I have since extended my sessions for injuries to my wrist and elbows, and will also start sessions for my long covid symptoms.His depth of knowledge and experiance is very refreshing and provides you with the confidence you're in safe hands.I would highly recommend Simon for any muschoscheleto treatment and much more.Not to mention Simon is very professional and a joy to work with.Regards, Ash
I’ve been working with Simon for several years on and off due to my other commitments. He’s a great trainer, really flexible and has massively helped with my control over my hypermobile joints with tailored exercises and activities. Would recommend for anyone looking for a professional, experienced and knowledgeable PT 🙂

I worked with Simon for over a year and can highly reccomend. I went in with reccuring low back pain after many years.The best thing about his sessions (I had in the Puregym Limehouse) is that he works like a Personal Trainer guiding you through full length workouts but he also has the knowledge/experience of a physio. For me this was important because one wrong move could throw my back out, and form is hard to remember, so we perfected form one rep at a time.Having regular training sessions he put together a bespoke exercise programme and tailors it over time as your condition changes. The programme included strengthening, mobility and stretches - some of the stretches in particular helped with short term relief.He also helped me with pain flare ups as i'd still go to the gym and he would take me through a "recovery" type workout where i'd feel better afterwards.I had a clear increase in strength even getting into weight lifting and pullups which i'd never done and my back benefited from these workouts allowing me to live more normally.

I worked with Simon on my running technique and some injury prevention exercises. In about nine months I've built up my running from three twnety minute sessions per week to three to five hour long six milers, and I feel great. All this at the ripe old age of 53. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon for his scientifically informed yet pragmatic approach.

I found my physiotherapy treatment plan from Simon at Superfit was extremely beneficial and his knowledge was key in my rehabilitation. Not only did he assist me in providing his physiotherapy knowledge, he kept me on track and shared his knowledge to help me going forward. I highly recommend super fit !
Professional and well knowledged .
Simon is a seasoned professional with experience in physiotherapy and personal training. This is an amazing combo as he understands how to rehabilitate and train the body like no other, not only for optimum health but also optimum training. He’s now helped me fully recover from a torn ligament in my knee and a repetitive stress injury in my upper back/neck. Strongly recommend for anyone wanting to learn more about injury prevention in training, as well as anyone injured wishing to come back to full on 100% pain free training.

I had a pretty bad injury on my foot. I was playing football and I landed in a way that I thought I would break my foot. I didn’t go to Simon straightaway, but I went into gym to get myself into shape. I had Tony as my gym coach(amazing coach btw), and he sent me to Simon when he understood that I suffered a pretty bad injury.Once I got to Simon, he reassured me that the injury that I thought wasn’t as serious as I thought, and that the recovery time would be a lot quicker than I imagined . After a session with him he showed me a few simple, yet effective exercises, which sped up the recovery of my foot by a mile. What I thought would take months to recover, only took at most 3-4 weeks.Definitely 5 stars, and absolutely recommend Simon to anyone who need some physiotherapy. Greatly appreciated how he helped me.

Simon is a consummate professional. His combination of academic qualifications and years of practical experience in physical training, physiotherapy and anatomy make for a formidable combination. I was particularly impressed with his attention to detail and technique ensuring any existing injuries or poor form are considered. Additionally he demonstrated his flexibility for both in person training and when I was overseas providing realtime online training sessions. I would not hesitate to recommend him on qualification, experience, flexibility and price.
Simon helped me develop a liking and a routine for gym practice for the first time in my life. Professional, knowledgeable and completely flexible to the individual needs of the client.Couldn’t recommend him and Superfit programmes enough

Simon delivers his sports and physio expertise in a professional yet very welcoming and empathetic manner. Above all though he knows an immense lot about the human body, its mechanics, and sports rehabilitation. He has been a huge help as I (a committed amateur cyclist) recover from a broken femur. His instruction is very clear, he is motivational yet still mindful of limits, and steady progression. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Simon has been an incredible force in my fitness journey. His approach goes beyond the typical personal trainer role; he's a true mindset shifter. Under his guidance, I experienced a remarkable transformation both physically and mentally. His expertise not only helped me shed excess weight but also fundamentally changed the way I perceive and approach exercise.What sets Simon apart is his multifaceted skill set. His prowess as a personal trainer is undeniable; he designs workouts that are challenging yet tailored to individual needs, making every session both effective and enjoyable. But what truly impressed me was his dual role as a physiotherapist. Whenever I faced muscle soreness or felt a bit out of sync, his knowledge in physiotherapy proved invaluable, aiding in my recovery and ensuring I stayed on track with my fitness goals.Simon isn't just about workouts; he's about holistic fitness. He took the time to understand my goals, limitations, and preferences, crafting a program that not only helped me achieve results but also kept me motivated throughout the process. His encouragement, support, and positive attitude created an environment where I felt empowered and motivated to push my limits.I can confidently say that without Simon's guidance, I wouldn't have achieved the level of fitness and wellness I enjoy today. His dedication to his clients' success is evident in every session. He's not just a trainer; he's a mentor, a motivator, and an expert who genuinely cares about his clients' well-being.Thank you, Simon, for being an instrumental part of my fitness journey. You're a true legend in the realm of personal training and an invaluable asset to anyone seeking genuine transformation and long-term fitness success.

I came to Simon with a serious lower back injury (disc extrusion). I could barely walk and the pain was excruciating. Within 3 months of Simon’s training, massage therapy and guidance I was back to lifting weights, mountain biking and I was pain free. He was pleased to answer any questions I had in between sessions and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Dean.

Simon at Super Fit is an excellent physio and PT. I had 8 sessions with him over an 8 month period and his knowledge and professionalism are both very good.He built me a programme to work on, developed this over time and would check in regularly to see how I was getting on.After many years of seeing various physios and not getting diagnosed and treated correctly, Simon was exactly what I needed.Happy to say I am now fighting fit and I have Simon to thank for this.I would definitely recommend Super Fit for treatment.

I initially went to Simon for a foot injury from playing football. He went over the MRI report with me and explained it way better than the physio at my GP did! I instantly felt reassured with the knowledge and experience he has. He wrote up my rehab programme and after a few sessions, I was able to return to playing pain free! As season just started, I do get some aches and pains, and as a frequent gym-goer, whenever I see Simon he is always willing to stop and say hi and check up on me. Whether you’re going through an injury or wanting to become more athletic, Simon is your guy!

Simon is a very good physio, very up to date on the latest research. He is very accessible and he always tries and finds the best suited exercises for your specific problem.
Simon helped me post a leg surgery for rehabolitation getting me to walk and attain my natural gait and also strength and conditioning for with my legs.His exercises/suggestions were super helpful and had a solution for most pains/stiffness I had, and helped me increase my ROM.I was so much impressed with it that I also took PT for upper body strength and conditioning. With his form/techniques I could also feel the exercises a lot better.Would definitely recommend him!

Simon is excellent. I played a lot of rugby and Gaelic football over the years so unfortunately accustomed to injuries and the recovery process!!. I had a long standing hip issue which I thought I would have to carry through life… Simon was able to rehabilitate the problem, I’m now completely fine. I was very impressed by his in depth knowledge of the body. The guy to see for anything complex!!

Simon provided an in-depth assessment of my physical and functional abilities following an extensive ankle injury. He provided a personalised graded physio program considering both the muscular skeletal and neurological elements to the injury.

Simon has been great during the whole duration of my shoulder recovery (and then ankle recovery 😅). Very professional and helpful in the way he accompanied my recovery. Arranged real life appointments when needed, to show exercises and assess state of recovery. Otherwise would follow up on my exercises via WhatsApp, which was great to keep progressing in between sessions.Always reachable for questions or doubts. Cannot recommend enough.

I needed to get an ankle, sprained the previous year, strong and flexible enough to manage a couple of weeks trekking in Nepal. I only had a few months to play with.A series of in-gym physio sessions with Simon plus a home regimen did the job nicely.From a personal standpoint, was also a pleasure to work with him.Recommended.

Simon is professional, courteous and considerate. Offered modifications for all physio exercises thoughtfully.
I met Simon when I had no clue how to get started with my fitness journey and was dealing with some injuries. He understood my needs and helped me improve my fitness and confidence step by step. Simon is extremely knowledgeable and whilst I do the exercises in the sessions, I also pick his brain to understand various concepts around fitness. I then go home and take notes as I would have learnt so much! His kindness, patience, skill are all unparalleled. Best investment I have ever made!

Simon was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve been training with Simon for a year now and we’ve been focusing on lumbo-pelvic stability to help me get back to strength after having two children. Simon has put together a selection of programmes I can do between our sessions which are perfectly detailed for me to follow on my own. I would highly recommend Simon, he is very professional and knowledgable.

Simon really knows his stuff, where you might here differing opinions from online sources or from friends, Simon explains the reasoning behind the exercises to ensure you know exactly why you're doing each movement. Very attentive with his follow ups and flexible with the plan he gives you depending on how you're getting on with it, would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a physio!
