What people are saying about our rehabilitative personal training programmes

The rehab team at Elevate LDN are incredible! I've been sending my patients to see them as part of their recovery programme for years! Everyone I've sent has been delighted with their results.
Robert Griffiths
Chiropractor at Pro Performance Clinics
I recently sent Ben a patient with a disc protrusion who has made remarkable progress and is back playing rugby. He also helped one of my patients avoid the need for surgery for a chronic disc issue. Whether it’s my sport athletes or my desk athletes, Ben is the guy I send them to.
Nick Tzanos
Chiropractor London Healthcare Clinic and Hackney Chiropractic
I started working with Mike after emergency spinal surgery, followed by physio that had left me feeling vulnerable and weak. Mike’s expertise and support have been transformative. He’s helped me, bit by bit, to rebuild my strength in a sustainable and powerful way, that has left me feeling confident in my body, and has totally eliminated my back problems. Perhaps most importantly, Mike has taught me how to understand my body better and how to exercise in a way that keeps me fit, well and avoiding injuries in the first place.
Collaboration with Ben was truly a great experience in my clinical practice. He is always very proactive, reliable and hugely experienced as a trainer and rehabilitation specialist. His understanding of functionality of human body is admirable and he is able to utilise his skills in effective rehabilitation and training. His special interest in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation makes Ben one of the few trainers in the world licensed with this highly effective technique, and that is one of the many reasons I referred a large amount of my patients to Ben.

Physiotherapist - World Surf League
Following an excursion to the North Pole, I had to go in to hospital for a back operation. I tasked Mike with my post-operative recovery and to prepare me for the ‘OtillO’ adventure triathlon in Sweden. His highly specialised and phased process enabled me to build stability, strength and stamina. I was in great shape and highly confident for the event. Mike keeps me in solid condition in anticipation of the next crazy plan we put together and has a highly agile approach to repair me from and prepare me for my adventures.

What does it involve?

Movement Assessment

Movement assessments are integral to all our programmes but they are particularly crucial in rehabilitation personal training. All training starts with an assessment of your posture, movement and mobility.

This enables us to build a programme that allows you to progress steadily and safely while minimising the risk of re-injury.

Core and Breathing

Our specialist rehabilitation personal trainers analyse how well you use your core from breathing to stability. We see this as the foundation of healthy, pain-free movement.

This insight helps us select the most effective exercises for proper core muscle activation, crucial for those who have experienced back pain. pain.

Balance and Stability

During movement assessments, we examine your balance during everyday single-leg movements, vital for preventing hip, knee, and ankle injuries.

Joint stability is also essential; many joint problems stem from instability, so enhancing it can help protect against injury.

Movement Quality

“Move well then move often” is an adage we live by. Repeating poor quality movement can lead to injury.

Therefore we look at how you move through a range of exercises so that we know exactly what to focus on. Then you can safely progress without aggravating old injuries.

Core Function and Stability

In clients with back pain or other injuries, or those with sedentary work lifestyles, core muscles often function improperly.

Training that targets core function improvement can boost back strength and stability and even improve how you breathe.


Many people struggle with proper breathing, which hinders effective core muscle usage.

We’ll teach you exercises and techniques to breathe correctly, reducing neck and shoulder tension while strengthening your core muscles.

Core Stability

The next key role of the core is to stabilise the spine and trunk, maintaining a healthy spine position while sitting, standing and moving.

Our coaches will show you how to properly engage the core muscles and use them correctly. You’ll see there is a lot more to core training than sit-ups and planks.

Dynamic Core Work

Once you’ve mastered proper breathing and stabilisation, you can safely and efficiently perform dynamic movements, ideal for returning to demanding sports.

We’ll guide you through safely progressing to dynamic and loaded movements while using your body correctly.

Movement Coaching

Modern lifestyles often lead to poor movement, resulting in injury and pain due to inadequate joint, muscle, and tendon loading.

We coach you to enhance body movement, protecting joints, increasing flexibility, and promoting efficient movement in daily life or sports.

Mobility and Stability

Gain the flexibility and control to move well and minimise your injury risk. See what exercise are best for your body and your needs.

Our specialist trainers know that not all exercises are right for everyone. Therefore our programmes are designed to give you exactly the right exercises to safely progress.

Balance and Coordination

When walking, we spend more time on one leg than two, yet we often struggle with balance. Learn to properly use your muscles to keep you upright and stable.

Coordination also plays a huge role in keeping us free from injury whether in daily life or sports. Developing this ability will keep you agile and healthy.

Exercise Technique

Poorly performed exercise can do us more harm than good, so learn how to perform exercises effectively and safely.

We’ll give you the coaching and feedback needed to boost your confidence to be able to train without fear of injury.
