"Saw Carl today for the first time and it was obvious he had taken the time to look at my medical history which helped a lot. Nice guy who spent a lot of time not only ensuring I had the knowledge of exercises to help with the reason for my visit but also some exercises to prepare my body for some forthcoming training."
