As a Sports Physiotherapist, I see a large variety of running injuries present at our Clinic. Whilst you may injure a joint, muscle, ligament or tendon running - initially you need to address the local site of pain, weakness, inflexibility, poor control, etc - ultimately you need to look at the complete kinetic chain & running gait that overloaded your injured running body part in the first place! Keith has not only been an invaluable part of returning my injured runners back to health, but also contributing to runners' education, gait efficiency & PBs. Thanks Keith!

Keith's training session was incredibly worthwhile. I've been running properly for about 4 months and in that time had several recurring injuries likely due to my technique. Keith took the time to completely change my style into what I knew was the proper technique but didn't know how to achieve myself. He did this using easy to understand drills and using simple language. I have not mastered running yet as I only had the session last week but in the two sessions I've had since, I can feel the improvement. Highly highly recommend having a session with Keith.

After taking up running a few years ago my times became stagnate and it didn't get easier as my legs were constantly injured and sore. A month ago I was introduced to Keith; his knowledge and skill identified my problems straight away and his straight forward approach then allowed me to see the issues for myself. With a basic plan and lots of hard training I have been able to lower most of my PB's over various distances. Anyone interested in running needs to spend some time with Keith, it's essential!!

Many of the records listed below have been broken a number of times and those in the 45+ age group have since been broken by my friend Jamie Harrison - my aim is to make the 55+ records even harder than the 50+ records to keep him on his toes - go Jamie!!
