Physiotherapy Canary Wharf
Super Fit offers high quality, experienced & dynamic coaching and treatment for complex athletic performance, complex rehabilitation, complex pain and complex lives.
The approach of Super Fit is science based as well as drawing on Simon’s substantial experience. Each programme will be bespoke and address the specifics of that individual. The starting point is a two-part assessment. The spoken assessment or interview will determine what the client would like to achieve and what they are prepared to do to attain their goals. Also discussed will be the client’s activity levels with detailed description required in many cases; the physical demands of the client’s occupation; their current medical status and previous medical history. Other discussed areas will be an outline of the individual’s diet, their perceived sleep quality and quantity and What motivates or de-motivates the client regarding exercise. For those clients who have an active injury or have chronic pain, the assessment will include sections specifically relating to these areas such as a history of the problem and a pain questionnaire.
Following the spoken assessment, a summary report and proposed plan for the physical assessment will be generated and emailed to the client. There may be additional information that needs to be acquired such as completing a food or sleep diary.
The physical assessment will follow the plan that was set after the spoken assessment. A variety of tests may be used to determine strength, speed, stamina, range of movement, flexibility and skill. The client’s static and dynamic posture will be assessed with attention paid to movement control in appropriate individuals. The results of the physical session will then lead to a programme for the client to embark on. The programme will aim to achieve mutually agreed SMART goals and would include physical drills and exercises as well as mental techniques to enhance achievement. Super Fit will then provide regular reviews with the client with reference to the set goals.
Super Fit can provide regular sessions with certain clients but can also refer onto other respected health care professionals for clients to work with, for example personal trainers for regular weekly training sessions or psychologists for more in-depth mental health assessment and treatment.
Super Fit does not offer ‘fast results’ and won’t agree to or set unrealistic goals. Results will come from a collaboration of detailed analysis, the appliance of science, mutually agreed goals and hard work. The analysis of each individual will be particular and cater to the desires of the client.

In his own words
My assessment is key to assisting the client to achieve their goals. A specific assessment enables the training/treatment programme to cater to the individual. My assessment has been moulded over the years by experience and by the best available scientific literature. The training/treatment programme is similarly science and experience based. Following best evidence to guide practice is hugely important but trusting your practitioner is also critical to achieving the desired result. I don’t promise quick fixes or agree to/set unrealistic goals but do promise to make your goal my goal and your challenge my challenge.
