Needed to be fit for a trip to London

Needed to be fit for a trip to London

My name is Marcus Chilvers and I am a director of J R Pitchers Ltd (a motor engineering firm). I have been lucky enough to get a place via ballot on the London Marathon for 2013 after 3 previous attempts.

Following previous treatment with Steve Kirby at Get Fit Stay Fit for a neck injury I discussed with him my impending challenge. Steve suggested a weekly sports therapy session which included Bioneuro therapy and Hydrotherm massage therapy treatments, along with the usual sports therapy massages. He also suggested what type of training to do to increase my stamina and improve my breathing technique.

I have had some injuries which have crept up on my during training, a groin injury and a foot injury.

Which Steve has attended to and subsequently advised me the best training to do (or not to do) that particular week to ensure I do not aggravate the condition but to keep me on track with my training.

The Bioneuro therapy and Hydrotherm Massage Therapy are treatments which are amazing to see and feel the benefits from – these have certainly helped my body to recover from training and build up my core strength. Sometimes they are that effective I almost relax too much on the therapy treatment!

All aspects of the training advice, therapy and treatments have enhanced my ability to ensure I will be fit on the day in April. Recently I did a run on a snowy Sunday morning which was just under 10 miles but the whole journey was along the beach which Steve advised me – “you can double any beach miles” which pleased me tremendously. After completing this 10 mile distance I felt confident and very happy to know I am in safe hands and progressing nicely towards April’s challenge.

I just wanted to thank Steve for all his attention and advice leading up to my big day in April and I know this is certainly helping me get where I need to be fitness-wise so thank you.
