It’s a great way to get into shape and improve your all round fitness. A really enjoyable experience. ”
The time I previously spent weighing myself on my home scales was rather excessive . By being educated by Lee and Mark on what matters has stopped the daily weigh in and emotional connection I had with a number. I have realised that less time on the scales is less time worrying, more time concentrating on what matters and more time fitting into smaller clothes. 8 pounds of fat off and 8 cm off my hips in 5 weeks has proven this. You wouldn’t find that on a weight watchers scale!
After a few years of chronic injuries, osteoarthritis and 2 operations, I had been working by myself to get fitter with only limited results.
Finding a qualified and experienced personal trainer can be difficult, my gym has lots of glossy ads making extravagant claims for its trainers but I wasn’t convinced that they were up to the job from what I saw when I was working out there. I also knew I would be well outside my comfort zone doing personal training sessions.
Having personal training sessions with Mark at Bodymotiv8 has felt absolutely right from the very first session. I have enjoyed the wide variety of exercise techniques he uses, his knowledge and enthusiasm have motivated me and kept me on track. My weight loss has continued and I am now exercising at a higher intensity than I thought possible.
It was important to me to learn the correct the correct exercise technique both to get results and to avoid injuries and Mark always explains in detail and demonstrates each exercise to make sure I get it right. I have been exercising at a more intense level for a few months now without any injuries holding me back.
Also as Bodymotiv8 is a private gym, the personal training sessions are more structured and intense because we are not having to wait to use gym equipment or compete with other gym users.
It might seem like a luxury to have PT sessions but I would not have improved my fitness to my current level just muddling along by myself at the gym. I recommend personal training at Bodymotiv8 highly.
I broke my leg and ankle in seven places in a snowboarding accident in January 2010 and met Lee Spendiff to help with my recovery.
The consultant at Ninewells Hospital painted a bleak picture of a slow, difficult recovery. I was told that I would still be using at least one crutch at the end of 2010 and to refrain from beginning physiotherapy treatment until then. However, I decided to return to training in June 2010 and it is the best thing I have ever done.
It was very hard work. Lee made me lift weights I couldn’t manage before the accident and encouraged me when I felt low and in pain. Even though I had a lot of work in the gym over the next twelve months, I can honestly say that Lee performed a miracle with my recovery and would encourage anybody with broken bones to have a consultation with him.
The consultant nearly fell off his chair when I cycled to Ninewells Hospital from Broughty Ferry in September 2010! I now realise that if you are willing to work hard in the gym, with the correct supervision, anything is possible!

I met Lee for the first time for Sports Therapy on a wrist injury, due to an accident at work. It was weak, painful and had limited movement, despite the operation I underwent. With a course of treatment which encompassed exercise, massage and ultrasound, I have experienced an enormous improvement. I will never have full mobility of the wrist; however I now have less pain and more flexibility, which allows me to complete everyday tasks that I was previously struggling with. I have continued to see Lee for treatment of other injuries I have gained, due to being accident prone! I have always found him very knowledgeable and professional in his role.
I began having personal training sessions with Lee one year ago and he has helped me to improve my fitness levels. I have noticed dramatic changes in my body, helping me to feel happier and more comfortable with myself. He is always happy to answer my questions, no matter how silly, gives me solid nutritional advice and makes experience working out enjoyable.
When Lee told me he was starting a boot camp, I was, of course, keen to join. It is a good addition to the work I do in the gym and as difficult as the sessions are, Lee and the Bodymotiv8 team always make them fun. There have been some fantastic, extremely hard sessions, in the gym and on the beach. The three sessions a week have helped my fitness levels, making me fitter and stronger. The instructors at Bodymotiv8 are always thinking of challenging and innovative ways to train us.
I would recommend Lee to everyone requiring treatment or looking for Personal Training.

Lee was recommended to me by several fellow runners, who gave glowing reports of his services. I started seeing Lee for regular Sports Massage treatment as part of my preparation for an ultra-marathon in France. I had always felt quite sore and stiff after ultra-marathons, however since undertaking regular treatment this stiffness is mild and my niggles during the race (tight glutes, shoulder and hamstrings), post-run ache and sore feet have gone. There is no doubt in my mind that seeing Lee enabled me to compete well, with no niggles, in a 22 hour run in France, Italy and the Swiss Alps, and allowed me to walk normally in two days. I felt brilliant during the race and my recovery was extremely quick. Lee is professional, approachable and certainly knows his stuff. He is always able to provide comprehensive answers to my questions, such as Body Mass Index (BMI) readings, with additional information on body fat and hydration, and advice on how to build up weaker muscles in the gym. Big thanks Lee, see you in the prep for the next ultra!
Trainee Clinical Psychologist
I wanted to thank you for all of your work with my chronic Achilles tendonitis. When I first came to see you I had come to terms with the idea that I would never do a lot of running again, but was eager to continue hill walking and other outdoor pursuits. I now run up to three times per week and do lots of hill walking, with no discomfort. Furthermore, I have developed an in-depth knowledge of how to deal with the problem if it arises again. Many thanks Lee!

I have just completed a block of ten weekly sessions with Lee. In that time, with his support, I have lost one stone and gained an enormous amount of confidence in my physical ability.
After several years of no regular exercise, I was fat, frumpy and incredibly moody. Lee’s nutrition advice has helped me say goodbye to high fat food cravings and being accountable to him keeps me on track. I can’t believe the difference in my strength levels, with statistics to prove that I have turned fat into muscle (Lee uses special equipment to measure this, which means I get a bit of a rest!) After my initial assessment, the training sessions have involved using different machines, weights, equipment and even basketball, with no two weeks being the same. I am becoming more toned and have rediscovered my energy.
Today I ran outside for forty minutes and felt great afterwards, which makes all my efforts worthwhile. I can’t wait to see what the next block will do!
Nursery Head Teacher
This is just a wee thank you note for helping me achieve my goal of running under three hours (2:56:04) for the London Marathon. Without your efforts in treating my aches, pains and injuries in the lead up to the Marathon, I doubt I would have achieved my goal. Anyone who runs regularly would benefit greatly from Lee’s expertise and I will continue to use his services as a regular part of my training routine. Many thanks Lee!
Dundee Hawkhill Harriers
After six years of running regularly, I was struck down by my first sports injury, and with four weeks until my first marathon it couldn’t have been worse timing. I had shooting pains in my feet which made it very difficult to continue running. Lee Spendiff was recommended to me by a friend and I was impressed by how quickly he diagnosed the problem. The injury was not to my feet but my calf muscles, which after four months of marathon training were extremely tight and full of scar tissue. Lee measured the flexibility of the affected muscles and treated my calves with Sports Massage. He also gave me stretching exercises to do at home and after a couple of weeks, I was back to normal.
With Lee’s help, I ran my first marathon pain-free. In addition, he showed me how to warm up properly before running and recommended stomach and iliotibial band strengthening exercises, which will improve my running in the future. I would highly recommend Lee Spendiff to anybody who runs regularly, both for injury prevention and treatment.
I was fast approaching 50 as a fat, unfit lump of lard! Having moved from academia into the pharmaceutical industry in recent years, I was wearing the excesses of my corporate lifestyle around my waistline and felt deeply unhappy. I contacted Lee via his website and asked for help for my husband and I. Until I met Lee, I believed that Bodymotiv8 would probably be, yet another, failed attempt to get our health and fitness under control. However, Lee is an amazing person and when I met him, I felt that this experience would be different. He is extremely knowledgeable, calm, reassuring and was totally non-judgemental of my husband and I.
Lee gave me a full body analysis and the results were shocking. I had 42% body fat, weighed 77.6kg, had a BMI of 32, a waist circumference of 106cm, hypertension and, to top it off, I was dehydrated!
Undaunted by the task ahead of him, Lee has worked closely with me and my results are amazing, six weeks in. I feel wonderful and much more positive about life. I have lost 6kg, including 20cm from my waist, and my fitness levels are higher than they have ever been. What has helped is that Lee has encouraged me by checking my body fat and muscle percentages, which showed that I had lost 4kg of fat and gained 4kg of muscle one week when the scales didn’t register a loss. He has designed a programme to target the body parts I am concerned with and leave me with the curves I want to keep!
I am very grateful to Lee for his help and encouragement. There have been days when motivating myself to go to the gym has been a struggle but by the end of my training session, I am glad that I attended. The reward of an occasional massage has also helped me enormously!
What is most important to me is that I am thoroughly enjoying my training sessions and I intend to keep attending them. I cannot believe that I am writing this as until now, I have always been a gym phobic!

I was advised by a friend to see Lee Spendiff. I weighed 85kg, had 46% body fat and felt very unfit. Additionally, I looked like a sack of potatoes and had poor confidence in myself.
Lee gave me a full body analysis and designed a unique fitness programme, arranging to meet me once a week. It was great! Lee is very motivating, professional and knowledgeable. I have a recurring back problem and he knew exactly what kind of exercises I needed to strengthen the area, for long term benefit. This gave me an enormous amount of confidence.
I now weigh 79kg, have lost five inches from my waist and 32% body fat. It has been worth all the effort because I feel great and look 100 times better, thanks to Lee’s encouragement and support. I would recommend Bodymotiv8 to everyone!
Hilltown Property Management
As a 53 year old male with 36 years of pen pushing behind me and no regular exercise for 20 years, my health profile was less than ideal. I was two stone overweight, suffered from high blood pressure and climbing three flights of stairs would leave me gasping for breath. Add into the mix countless failed diets and exercise regimes, and you get a picture of what I was like.
I found the BodyMotiv8 website and thought, perhaps with help, I could improve my fitness levels, lose weight and lower my blood pressure. To be honest, I approached Lee with a great deal of apprehension and uncertainty as to what would happen. I had an image of being the proverbial ‘fish out of water’ in the world of personal training. I could not have been more wrong.
Four months later, I am 20lbs lighter, my blood pressure is 15 points lower and I am exercising at a level I didn’t achieve in my 20s, never mind my 50s. This would not have happened without Lee’s help and encouragement, which he links into new challenges, week upon week. He is very professional and it is evident he takes great pride in his work.
Somewhat perversely, I actually really enjoy training with Lee and look forward to my sessions. I guess that is his greatest attribute! I am looking forward to continuing to improve my physical well-being with Lee’s expert assistance over the months ahead.
Operations Director, Blackadders Solicitors
I would recommend Lee Spendiff at BodyMotiv8 to anybody with a musculoskeletal injury, especially if it is sport related. I am a runner, occasional triathlete, adventure racer and all-round glutton for punishment, as well as being a hospital doctor in my spare time! Last year I was laid up with a gluteal injury, tight iliotibial bands and, to top it off, a torn calf muscle.
Lee is an outstanding sports masseur, and this was the best way to treat my injuries, but he also measured the strength and flexibility of the muscle groups, giving me special stretching and strengthening exercises to do. As a result, I got back on the road quickly, and thanks to Lee, I was third in a duathlon in the summer.
I am 62 years old and recently retired, having spent many years sitting in front of a computer at work. I am not actively involved with a sport (I watch the Olympic Games every four years) and not especially overweight, although recently I have gained more of a bloke’s belly! I am relatively healthy, with average fitness levels for my age, but have suffered from a frozen shoulder for a couple of years.
My wife Carol wanted to improve her health and fitness with a Personal Trainer, so I was dragged along, reluctantly, to provide moral support. She thought it would help us to stay healthy and make the most of my retirement. After a fitness assessment, I learned I am stiffer than average (off the bottom of the scale to be honest!) but fairly strong (must be all the curries I have picked up over the years!).
After the assessment, my next session was at the gym with Lee, with the potential to be intimidating because I had never been to a gym before. However, he was very reassuring and gave me a tour of the gym and equipment, making me feel relaxed and confident. Lee put me through a variety of exercises and provided lots of guidance and encouragement at each stage.
I now have approximately one session per week and am impressed by how many different exercises Lee has in his repertoire. This helps to make my training sessions interesting and enjoyable. As the weeks have passed, I have been feeling fitter and stronger, and return from the sessions feeling motivated to continue with exercises at home. The more I exercise, the more physical activity I can do. I find it mentally stimulating and wish I had started training with Lee years ago. I would never have been motivated to go to the gym by myself and exercise effectively without his guidance. Having a frozen shoulder means some exercises are difficult, as I have a limited range of movement, but Lee works around my limits and gives me special exercises to improve the area. His input has been invaluable to Carol and I and we are very grateful for his support and encouragement.
I am a 36-year-old woman who started going to the gym, albeit reluctantly. I had back pain which no specialist could cure, so a friend recommended Lee Spendiff to me. I started attending Sports Therapy treatment and after a few sessions, the pain was gone. I asked Lee about Personal Training and whether he thought he could get me in shape. I was not overweight but wanted to be fitter and trim up certain body parts.
I started training once a week with Lee. It was torture, I won’t say it was easy! After the second session he convinced me to change my diet and eat proper food, and it was not the uphill struggle I thought it would be. We all know what is required to lose weight, however it is essential to work with someone who can motivate you, help you with your diet and give you advice for the body shape you want to achieve.
Lee is very competent, as a Personal Trainer and Sports Therapist, and knows how to motivate you. I have been training with him since November and by the end of February, I had reached my target. I decreased my body fat by 10% and lost 8kg. I feel great and very content with my health and body. I now have another goal, which will be harder, but with Lee motivating me I know I will achieve it.
Lee knows everything about health and fitness and how to motivate you, without putting you off. If you want to change your life and get in shape, I would recommend Lee to you. It is really worth it!
After Lee Spendiff was recommended to me by a work colleague, I started seeing him for regular Sports Massage sessions. Furthermore, he has given me a flexibility training programme and does developmental stretches with me, to increase my flexibility.
I have always found Lee very professional and knowledgeable in his field. He is friendly, approachable and highly motivating.
First Team, Dundee United Player
Approximately ten years ago, I injured my shoulder at work and was in a car accident shortly afterwards, causing a bad whiplash injury. Since then I have suffered from chronic neck and shoulder pain, which has been virtually impossible to get rid of. I’m only 30-years-old and because I’m a nurse, even a small flare up of my symptoms makes working painful and difficult. I have tried most treatments; reflexology, physiotherapy, reiki, osteopathy, heat and cold therapy, and of course painkillers, however massage is the most effective. I met Lee through a friend who has also benefited from his treatment.
His holistic approach to my injury is very refreshing and reassuring. Lee really does seem to have ‘healing hands’ and is very knowledgeable about treating injuries. Since undergoing regular sessions with Lee, I rarely need to take painkillers, which I used to take daily just to function. He also helped me to regain some movement in my neck and shoulders, which tend to be very stiff.
Over the past ten years I have been told by medical specialists that my injury will cause me life-long problems. Thanks to Bodymotiv8, I have hope that these will be minimal. I would not hesitate to recommend Lee’s services to anyone with a similar injury.
Earlier this year, I developed a calf injury which prevented me from running. I was examined by two physiotherapists who successfully diagnosed the problem, however my injury persisted. Fortunately, a fellow runner recommended Lee Spendiff to me. His holistic approach, i.e. listening to the client and treating the entire leg, rapidly settled the problem. In addition, Lee has given me a lot of advice on injury prevention, stretching, diet and exercise, which I have found incredibly useful. His professional manner and thorough approach make working with him a delight and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
I was introduced to Lee Spendiff a few months ago by a fitness instructor. I have flat feet and this has devolved to my experiencing poor mobility, chronic pain and swelling of my ankle and knee joints. When I first met Lee, my ankles were so rigid I could only walk a few yards without severe discomfort. He introduced me to a chiropractor who helped to ‘free up’ my joints while he worked on my muscles.
Over the years I have tried several types of therapy, however they only gave me short term relief. After working with Lee for several months, my mobility has returned and my body is more flexible. Today, I walked seven miles with only mild discomfort. I was lucky if I could walk around the supermarket without suffering severe pain and swelling of my joints before!
It is a pleasure being treated by Lee because he is highly motivated and professional. He has worked on my entire body as the joints have come back into alignment, giving me appropriate exercises to do. Furthermore, he created an individual programme to deal with the problems I experience.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lee for giving me my mobility back and eliminating the chronic swelling around my ankles. It is just a pity you don’t work for the NHS!
I hurt my back when I was pushing a wheelbarrow in the garden (where else does one in their seventies wheelbarrow?) and resembled a walking, Leaning Tower of Pisa. The chiropractor re-aligned my bones and after several weekly treatments, suggested I undergo deep clinical massage. Lee Spendiff was recommended to me because he has many years of experience of working with back and sports injuries.
When I met Lee, I felt his positive energy and a sense of security from knowing he would help me. And this he did.
The pain decreased from my first massage and I experienced such relief! He also designed a programme of exercises to strengthen my back, doing them with me, and explained the muscles involved, showing me them on a wall chart. Lee did everything in his power to assist the healing process and I am now ‘fixed’!
I can only say one thing; Lee Spendiff’s commitment to his clients is faultless, he has magic healing hands and he can ‘fix’ you, as he did me.
Retired Professional Dancer
I like to stay fit and regularly exercise by jogging and cycling. At the beginning of the year, I was jogging and pulled my hamstring and front quad muscles which prevented me from participating in any exercise. I desperately needed treatment from a recognised physiotherapist.
I was advised to contact Lee Spendiff from BodyMotiv8 who provided me with Sports and Remedial Massage, and Personal Training. From the beginning, he put me at ease and located the problem area of the injured muscles. At the end of the treatment, my hamstring and quad muscles were restored to full fitness and I have been able to continue my fitness programme without any further problems re-occurring.
I would have no hesitation in using Lee’s services again.
I consulted Lee Spendiff with shoulder pain that had been troubling me for several years and was becoming more severe, in spite of physiotherapy. I was impressed by his swift diagnosis of the root cause of the problem which allowed him to develop a treatment and exercise regime that produced rapid results.
For the first time in ages, my shoulder is pain free. This is entirely due to the expert treatment and advice that Lee has provided, and the professional manner in which it was delivered.
Lee Spendiff was recommended to me by a fitness instructor at Energie Fitness because I had very tight calf muscles. The atmosphere at Bodymotiv8 is warm and friendly, and Lee made me feel very comfortable. The treatment I underwent was highly successful and the advice I received was concise and easy to understand. I would not go anywhere else and would highly recommend Lee to anyone who needs treatment.
Lee Spendiff is a highly competent Sports Therapist and adviser on fitness and nutrition. But more than that, he really identifies with you and your problems. When I first came to Bodymotiv8, I was in my mid-40s with a ten year knee injury, having played a punishing amount of football when I was younger. I had been told that my knee could not function properly for football again. However, Lee looked at the problem from several perspectives and came up with a treatment programme that released the pressure on my knee.
This has allowed me to play football again and by following Lee’s advice, I am making great progress with my fitness.
Professor at University of Dundee
I have been running marathons for 25 years and subjected my legs to plenty of punishment, so it is unsurprising that they have been paying me back with niggles and minor injuries lately. However, since I started visiting Lee Spendiff for regular treatment, my legs have been rejuvenated!
Lee is very knowledgeable and detail orientated, and takes a holistic approach to treatments. From visiting Lee, I have benefited from Sports Massage therapy and helpful advice on training and nutrition. I have recommended him to many fellow runners, all who have experienced a positive outcome to their injury problems.
I would highly recommend Lee to anybody who needs training and nutritional advice, or injury treatment.
Over the past two months while attending Bodymotiv8 for treatment, I have valued Lee’s professional and caring approach. He is genuinely interested in my ailments and his treatment has been highly effective. I would encourage everybody to contact Lee, his help will be invaluable!
Guest House Owner
I experienced excruciating back pain for a couple of years, due to a previous employment post. I consulted an osteopath, who was helpful, however I hated getting my back cracked.
After undertaking a massage and stretching programme with Lee, my back pain almost completely vanished. I am now able to attend Body Combat classes, without being in agony the next day, and can play rugby, which I never thought I would be able to do without suffering from back pain. I would definitely recommend Lee to anyone.
I had suffered from back and shoulder pain for years and undertaken two courses of physiotherapy, with little improvement. At certain points, I was finding it difficult to sleep without painkillers and carrying heavy bags had become increasingly painful.
I was impressed by Lee’s professional attitude from the beginning. He completed an assessment of my medical history and gave me individualised treatment which was continuously re-evaluated, depending on my progress. Unlike an ordinary massage, which relieves tension for a number of hours, Lee provides treatment and advice which gives long-lasting results, even if you have a chronic condition.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Lee Spendiff to others. His friendly, yet professional, treatment will suit so many people.
I would like to express how wonderful Lee was at our Healthy Living Day. He was professional and knowledgeable, and we have received a tonne of positive feedback from employees who enjoyed their massage!
We look forward to working with Lee again in the future.
I go to the gym regularly but recently developed a foot injury. When I visited Lee at Bodymotiv8, he diagnosed the problem and root cause. Since then, he has designed a stretching programme for me, on top of a course of Sports Massage. This has been extremely effective and my foot is much better. Bodymotiv8 also helps me to maintain a healthy weight, providing excellent training and nutritional advice to its clients. I would strongly recommend it to help you feel and look better!
Primary School Teacher
I injured my back more than three years ago, creating difficulties in my professional and social life. I joined the gym, however I found it difficult to do anything apart from swimming until Lee made a training programme for me. Doctors and physiotherapists had been unhelpful, never identifying the root cause of the problem, but I had a Sports Therapy massage at Bodymotiv8 and knew it could help me. Lee immediately identified the root cause of the problem and gave me exercises to complement the massage therapy.
After seeing Lee for almost three months, my back is much better; I feel like I walk a foot taller after every massage, I never leave work early in pain and I sleep soundly. I am very grateful to Lee for his help and enthusiasm, and would recommend him to everyone!
Having been bothered by a trapped nerve in my shoulder for at least five years, it is fantastic to be shot of the problem, a few months after consulting Lee! His exercise regime has made me fitter and stronger than I have ever been. I would highly recommend his professional services.
I didn’t know there was anything wrong with me. Then one morning when I woke up, my back and neck just froze. For three weeks I was looking to the left, whether I wanted to or not. It was a nightmare. Not only was it incredibly painful but even simple things like opening a door were a puzzle I had to think through in detail. Should I pull with one hand, block it with the cup of tea I was carrying (consequently burning myself and twisting my shoulder) or kick it open, Karate Kid style, with my right foot while facing in the opposite direction and run through it backwards?
My doctor referred me to a physiotherapist who gave me advice like ‘keep warm’ and ‘sort out your workstation’ before he decided I did not require further treatment. A few weeks later, I tried to start exercising at the gym again. Within five minutes I was sitting on the steps outside the class, in tears, with shooting pains in my back, neck and head. That was when I met Lee.
He told me it would be a slow process, and it was. Lee started my treatment with a programme of massage and stretching exercises. The results were immediate. My headaches vanished overnight and I got a full night’s sleep for the first time in months. My mobility increased and I was able to drive, without a fear of parking in small spaces!
Lee has created an exercise programme for me and it is a relief to work through it without worrying that I will aggravate the injury and cause more pain. My latest programme focuses on mobility, and strengthening and stretching exercises for the injured area. For the first time in months I can push myself at the gym and see results. A couple more months of this and I will be in the best shape I have ever been. Nice one!
Lee’s approach to massage is very holistic, taking into account the individual’s overall well-being. He is knowledgeable and stays up-to-date with the latest developments in the Health and Wellness Industry. However, his greatest strength is that he makes massages feel incredible!
Furthermore, Lee has been a fantastic, creative personal trainer. He always incorporates fun exercises into my workouts to ensure I don’t feel bored. He is also well-informed in relation to healthy eating and has helped me to stay on track with my diet, without feeling deprived.
Health Promotion Specialist
No more creaking neck and aching shoulders! Lee is a very professional therapist and knows his stuff, inside and out. An absolute must for anybody who wants relief from pain, due to muscle tension or poor posture. I was a victim for years, now it has gone!
I have experienced a huge improvement in what was a recurring, debilitating back condition, since beginning my treatment with Lee. He has pinpointed the root causes of the problem and is systematically correcting them, using a hands-on approach which was lacking in the previous treatments I received. He has used massage and advised me on stretching exercises, to help increase the flexibility and condition of the problem muscles. In turn, this has given me the freedom to embark on a training programme that will help me fulfil my long term goal of playing rugby again. Thanks for all your help!
Since I started receiving physiotherapy treatment from Bodymotiv8, I have been pain free for the first time in four years. Before I started working with Lee, walking upstairs was incredibly painful and doctors recommended that I undergo knee surgery. After only three weeks of treatment, I can walk upstairs, with no pain, and begin thinking about hill-walking again!
I have been treated by Lee several times over the past three or four months. He is very thorough and accurate in his assessment of people, carrying out treatments in a friendly, relaxed and professional manner.
Lee has improved my back pain and successfully treated a recent shoulder injury. He has also given me excellent advice about body posture and exercise. I would not hesitate to recommend Lee’s services to friends or colleagues!
Lee has done more for my knee problems in one month than doctors did over many years! After undergoing Sports Massage treatments and following a training schedule for four weeks, I feel more fit and supple than I have for a long time.
Being one of Lee’s older clients and previously unfamiliar with ‘gym culture’, I would recommend him without hesitation. I have experienced incredible results after only one month. I wish I had found him years ago!
Lee highlighted problems with my posture which I had blamed on ‘the way I am made’. He emphasised that if I didn’t address them, I would experience major issues with my back in later life. The exercises I had been undertaking at the gym were actually making the problems worse.
Lee gave me a customised training plan and several Sports Massage sessions. I now have no neck ache and can see a difference when I look in the mirror. We also examined my diet, which has made my workouts more productive. I have now lost 6% of my body fat, gained muscle and feel and think more confidently. Thank you Lee!
Brassica Crop Manager
I arranged to meet Lee because my work life is hectic, but sedentary, and I struggled to focus on training on a consistent basis. I eat a healthy diet but needed to build strength, as I planned to participate in a quadrathlon. Moreover, I have been finding that as I creep through my 30s, it is increasingly difficult to keep my weight under control.
Lee has designed various gym programmes for me to build strength, increase flexibility and, above all, stay motivated. I now have better all-round fitness, less body fat, better muscle tone and better posture, plus am eating more than I was before!
As a regular exerciser, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I didn’t know everything about how my body works. I would recommend speaking to Lee for an honest appraisal of your fitness; you will find his enthusiasm for health and wellness, and commitment to help YOU succeed infectious.
Development Manager, Private Banking
After suffering from a hip fracture, I found that coming to BodyMotiv8 helped me to walk properly again. They fully restored my range of movement and returned me to full, functional fitness, including dancing.
I had experienced pain and frustration for years, going to my GP and physiotherapist for painkillers and unhelpful exercises. A chance meeting, informal ten minute chat and several tests with Lee finally identified a possible cause of my pain. After a full consultation and assessment, the cause of my torment was pinpointed and I have been improving ever since. I am very grateful for the help Lee has given me.
