I was training for the London Marathon and had gathered quite a few aches and pains along the way, particularly in my hip and knee. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to continue training properly.

In addition, I was finding it difficult to shift some weight, especially considering I was doing so much running (3-4 times per week!). I was keen to have a holistic assessment to help improve my performance and physique.

Having never heard of Biomechanics, I was unsure what to expect. However, I was keen to give it a go. I did some research and felt comfortable approaching Libby for an appointment. I was looking forward to the whole person approach.

It was wonderful working with Libby right from her warm, enthusiastic greeting to the congratulatory text and email after I completed the London Marathon. Being asked to do a food diary and then listening to Libby’s analysis was a revelation.

Turns out I wasn’t eating enough! I was given a strict (but easily understandable) regime to follow, bespoke for my needs and situation. The biomechanics assessment and subsequent exercises made a significant difference to my body (and mind). And, the sports massage was out of this world…..I learnt a lot about nutrition, performance psychology and biomechanics from my sessions.

After the sessions with Libby I was successfully able to continue with my marathon training. My body shape changed, I lost weight and my energy levels significantly increased. My body felt stronger and the issues with my knees and hips disappeared. And this meant I hit my goal of a sub 5 hour London Marathon, finishing in 4hrs 50…..I was delighted.

I believe I wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without the support from Libby…Thank you!
