Neil trained at the North London School of Sports Massage and STOTT Pilates and is a full member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM),
With a background in Athletics, Gymnastics and Martial Arts followed by a career as a Firefighter, Neil understands the strain put on the body both in physical training and in day to day life and work.
Neil is fascinated by the body’s ability to produce compensation patterns very quickly following injury, or over a period of time from poor postural habits. He holds an additional qualification as a Biomechanics Coach™ and is able to screen for a number of ‘hidden’ compensations which can cause injury and pain elsewhere in the body. This enables him to target specific problem areas and prescribe simple ‘take home’ exercises to help rebalance the body, thus in many cases facilitating a quicker and longer lasting recovery and aiding the prevention of further injuries.
Neil qualified as a Certified Pilates Teacher with Stott Pilates in London, and enjoys bringing the benefits of Pilates to the male population with his 'Men Only' class in addition to his mixed classes. Since qualifying, Neil has undertaken further training in Pilates for Osteoporosis/Osteopenia, and Pilates for Pregnancy and Post Natal. In addition to Pilates, Neil will be offering Personal Training later in 2018.
Since graduating in Sports/Remedial Massage in 2006, Neil has practised sports massage at Fore Street Osteopathic Clinic, One Addison Complementary Health Clinic, Fitness First Leyton and at various sporting events including the London Marathon and 24 hour endurance event Spitfire Scramble.
Neil teaches Pilates classes on Monday mornings and evenings, Wednesday morning and evenings, Thursday evenings, and Friday mornings, and is available for private appointments on Monday early afternoon, Tuesday mornings/early afternoon, Wednesday early morning and early afternoon, Thursday all day, Fridays from 11am through to evening and Saturdays 7am-1pm.
