Testimonials

"I have been a professional Superbike rider for over 15 years, and have competed in the British, European and world Championships. The training involved in competing at the highest level is very intense and it is vitally important to succeed. I have trained most of my life, and had my fair share of injuries along the way. I started working with Alan in 2009 when I was suffering with a back injury and was very impressed with his attitude, professionalism and most of all, the results. I have worked with therapists from all over the world over the past 15yrs but after meeting Alan and working with him since 2009, I would not use anybody else. I class him as the best I have ever worked with. He keeps my body in shape for my Superbike Racing and I could not do without his help. Alan works with me both, before and after races and has attended British Superbike races with me. I would recommend him to anyone."

ďHaving been a member of Elswick Harriers for 50 years (since age 12) I have covered over 140,000 miles of road, cross country and track running. When Alan Lattimer became involved in Elswick Harriers offering sports therapy sessions, I jumped at the chance to see what benefits his therapy sessions would give an older athlete like me.

It soon became apparent that what Alan had developed through his initial and ongoing training in sports therapy, was a real expertise in this field. His clear passion and commitment to the profession was obvious and his knowledge of sports people helped him develop a genuine empathy with his clients. Alan has gained a good reputation in the north east through this passion, expertise and commitment.

The benefits on Alanís sessions to me personally were obvious, especially in relation to avoiding injury and preparing for fairly intense training and competition. Alanís support in 2007 proved so helpful that I returned from the World Masters Track & Field championships in Italy with silver medals at 5,000 metres and 10,000 metres plus a bronze medal from the 8k cross country. Thanks to Alan for this.

Alan has a real appetite for further developing his skills and expertise and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking help and support through sports massage.Ē

"I have been a professional mountain biker for nearly ten years. I am 27 years old and looking after my body is essential in the sport and lifestyle I lead. I moved further north a few years ago and I was searching for someone to look after me with sports massage. I am quite particular when it comes to a therapist, and by chance I found Alan, I went to see him on a Saturday morning and I was so pleased to finally find such a professional, enthusiastic, laid back guy who really loves his job. He is an athlete himself so has lots of experience and as an athlete myself, I find that really helps. I now see Alan regularly which is helping me keep my body in great shape for when I start my serious training. I canít thank Alan enough for his help. I have had a few injuries in my career so he also looks after them, which is very important to me. If you are looking for a sports massage therapist then I would only recommend Alan."

"In 2009 I made the transition from triathlon to cycling, and with it came a significant increase in my training, focus and effort. Along with any increase in training comes an increase in strain and load on your body. Thankfully, at the same time I also found Alan Lattimer, and his sports massage made a huge difference in terms of my recovery and preparation in both training and racing. I have been using Alan on a regular basis for ongoing massage, and also for pre and post race sessions. Alan has also attended races and administered post race therapy. He has really become an ingrained part of my training routine, and when I have missed a session with him I've really notice a hugely negative difference. Alan's professionalism and his ability make him fantastic to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone who trains seriously for any sport. 2009 and subsequently 2010 saw my lifetime best results and along with my coach, Michelle Dillon, I view Alan as an inherent part in my success."

"I'm a great believer in the benefits of Sports Massage and Alan is a great practitioner. He's looked after me for a number of years and I've always felt a real benefit from his treatment and leave the sessions with a better understanding of what's been going wrong! Being an athlete himself, he understands the sportsman and woman's imperative of regaining performance. He's great value and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to any sportsman or woman who is interested in maintaining their performance and health."

"I have always found Alan to be extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly and would not hesitate to recommend him to any one. We discuss my training and racing plans and, as a runner himself, Alan is always careful to tailor the massage to my needs. Any niggles or tight areas have been cleared up and Iím sure this has helped me to stay injury free and to continue running at a high level."

"Alan is a first class sports masseur and an invaluable member of our XC race support team. Providing massage and rider support at our win at Mountain Mayhem 24 hour race and will be supporting our team in 2011 at National races. His attention to detail and passion for sports massage is exactly why he is an integral part of our Scott team both on and off the race circuit."

Steve Carter - Scott Sports SA (UK Branch)

"I had been running for some time and decided to join a running club. The step up in training resulted in an IT band injury. Alan was recommended to be by an aerobics instructor at my local gym and so I made an appointment for a sports massage. I was a little apprehensive and nervous at first but Alanís friendly personality soon put me at ease. Alan diagnosed my problem at the very first session and even developed a recovery training plan for me at no extra cost. I was so impressed that I now visit him for regular Ďup-keepí sessions and have just achieved another personal best! Thanks Alan!Ē
