“I injured my back lifting a cooker. It was a serious injury that left me in a lot of pain. When I decided to start the journey back to fitness, a friend referred me to Chris knowing he’s an expert in this field. I was very nervous that it wouldn’t be possible or I would injure myself again. Chris really put me at ease, due to his knowledge. I had to build my strength & stability and it was really been worth it. After 12 weeks I had seen changes, from being able to do only a few simple stretches to running 3 or 4 times a week again. I’m now in the gym doing strength workouts.” Jackie
