Movement Assessment

Discover Your Hidden Movement Problems That Are Holding You Back In Your Training

Running-Specific Assessment

If you have training goals in 2019 but have a movement problem holding you back, we can help.

Movement is a very individual thing – we all move differently and we all have our own unique ways of performing skills like running and squatting.

A ‘poor’ movement might mean you lack range of motion, stability or strength or you may just experience pain when you perform it.

If you need to improve a specific movement for training, the first stage is a movement assessment…

Get Your Movement Assessed

Our assessments are based around you and what you do!

Our personalised Movement Assessment will help you discover exactly how you move and then optimise your movement specifically focused towards your training goals. In the session we will work with you to define your goals then assess your movement in relation to these goals.

If you’re a runner, we will watch you run. If you’re a cyclist we will watch you cycle. If you’re a weightlifter we will watch you lift!

Our approach is personal to you – there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to assessing movement, and we will give you your own personal program to build better movement.

We will help you:

  • Learn exactly where your movement inefficiencies lie
  • Test your power output by creating a movement assessment personal to you and your goals
  • Analyse the biomechanics that you use when you move (joint sequencing)
  • Assess your movement under fatigue (find the point where you get inefficient!)
  • Address any issues that we find with ROM, stability and power output
  • Create a movement program specific to you, to add into your current routine to get you moving better

After Your Movement Assessment Session

Learn specific exercises to help you progress past your weaknesses

Once we’ve been through your Movement Assessment session, created your assessments and discovered where your movement inefficiencies lie we will then devise a program for you to add into your training routine to help you gain new ground in your movement.

From here it’s simply a case of following the program we give you and incorporating it into your current routine, then feeding back to us with your results.

You’ll receive your homework exercises in video format via your phone so you’ll always have program to hand.

Latest Testimonial

How we helped trail runner Cameron avoid his usual training niggles and get race-ready…

“Finished up an amazing 12 week program with @sportfunction and even though this picture shows some great visual improvements, more importantly I feel like I’m running so much better. Running feels easier and a feel like I’m floating along trails right now.”

“3 months of training has lead me to my first big race this year in 10 days time. The first time I’ve got myself to the start line without a major setback” – Cameron Lacey-Coles

 

More Testimonials

“It’s difficult to put into words what Sport Function has done for me. I went to Pete with a history of knee injuries from basketball. An incomplete rehab process after surgeries during which I never fully recovered – and all of the issues that followed.

I’ve tried every physio in town, only to find out their approach never actually worked for me. I was looking for somebody who would drill down and treat the cause rather than the resulting problem, because I knew it would only keep occurring if I didn’t find what was causing it.

Pete has a very customised, agile and responsive approach to his work – no two clients are alike! He appreciates the unique biomechanics of the body and helps identify movements that are comfortable or uncomfortable. Not only is he very knowledgeable but you can see how he applies what he knows during each session depending on what your body and certain movements are indicating.

What I loved most is the fact that he educated me along the process. He was able to explain, jargon free, why I was feeling discomfort during certain moves, and then helped me overcome this and build a better me.

The physical improvement is a fact – I still do my specific homework every other day and always before a basketball game! But what’s even more remarkable in my case is that I no longer worry about my old injuries and I no longer think that the way I move is broken.

It is simply my way, which now thanks to Pete is pain-free! I feel confident and fearless.”

– Victoria Agova

 

“Prior to working with Pete, like many people, I based my training programme on a combination of “conventional wisdom” and the results of online research into sports science trends (which is a minefield of often-unqualified opinion).

Pete is very good at focusing on specific training objectives, tailoring one-to-one sessions accordingly. It’s a very different approach and makes perfect, logical sense when explained by Pete.Regarding my sessions, I’ve had a history of groin and hip flexor injuries and tried many different rehab strategies, with limited success.

Amongst other things, Pete designed a warm-up routine that targets the area of my previous injuries and, whilst some of the movements make me look ridiculous, they have kept me injury free through a pretty tough training year (which seems like a fair trade).

I think most people start working with Pete as a form of injury rehabilitation and, presumably like most people, I spent only a small proportion of my sessions focusing on this rehab. The majority of the sessions were then spent on improving the primary skills required for my sport.

So, I strongly recommend working with Pete if you have injuries to rehabilitate…but I also recommend working with Pete if you don’t have any injuries and simply wish to improve your performance.”

– Gareth Revell, Touch Player & Coach (Cardiff Raptors & Wales)

 

Ankle rehabilitation exercises with Physio Katie

Ankle rehabilitation exercises with Physio Katie

“I started seeing Pete a few weeks ago after sustaining ankle ligament damage when playing rugby. I was having difficulty walking, going up/down stairs, driving, even just moving my ankle due to pain.

After one session with Pete my ankle improved and has continued to every week I now don’t have any difficulty with the tasks I mentioned and can complete them all pain-free.

I understand the importance of rehabilitation as I am a Physiotherapist myself but everyone sometimes need a little extra help.

Working on increasing ankle range of movement, foot movement mechanics and stability combined with some additional hip work my ankle has improved significantly and I am sure I will return to playing rugby in the near future with Pete’s help.

Using a variety of equipment from a Gripr to CMT this has improved my own knowledge in rehabilitation. Thank you!”

– Katie Davies, Physiotherapist
