"I have had 3 visits to the performance lab. once for a test and two occasions for achilles tendon problem. Lee was superb taking me through the phases of remedying the injury and rehabilitation. The gait analysis was very informative and gives me something to work on and hopefully progress"


"Very knowledgeable, relaxed and friendly. I had a running injury so saw Lee, who as a fellow fell runner understood what had caused the issue, how to fix it and what to do to prevent it happening again. Perfect!"
