Charlotte Warris

I was suffering with pains in my knees whilst walking and taking part in PE at school. My GP kept telling my mum it was growing pains. She took me to Synergy as she has visited there herself. I saw a lady called Sarah, she did various tests to see if she could find out what was wrong. Muscles were tight and she discovered I rotated my knees. She referred me to Andy, who over the course of a few months gave me exercises and homework to complete.

All the exercises were explained to me and tried out in my sessions. They were straight forward and I was able to do them in my own house. Andy also helped me improve my running technique to avoid any further pain, possible injury and the rotation.

I eventually contacted a GP about a troublesome knee. An X-ray gave no clues about the problem so it was suggested physiotherapy might help.
Fortunately, Synergy were recommended. Sarah quickly diagnosed cartilage problems and, with my agreement, contacted my GP to arrange further tests. Pending the results I was given exercises to strengthen the muscles around the knee. Following an MRI scan and a keyhole surgery to sort out a torn cartilage I am now pain free and well on the road to recovery.

Next time I will start with Synergy and save myself some time!

Aim: injury prevention

Its six months since I finished my course with Suz and Andy in Woking, and I’ve been completely injury free ever since, my longest period of pain free running since I started taking it more seriously 7 years ago.

There is a lot to take in from the sessions, especially when you’ve been used to your own running style for basically the whole of your life, and yes it feels a little un-natural and difficult to alter it, but keep with it.

When running, your form will go as you get tired but remembering to “use your arms”, “keep upright” and “bring your heels through” is like a mantra and helps keep your mind occupied and more importantly keeps you focused on what you should be doing at the very time you are likely to get injured.

The proof is also there, last month I achieved a 5k PB, over 50 races on from when I last set that mark.

Aims: injury prevention and increase of pace

Having completed the course with Andy last year, my running seems to be coming on in leaps and bounds (pun intended)!

I seem to be able to hold a much quicker average pace without increasing effort.

With a couple of follow up sessions through the year the pb’s keep coming, with the latest at Surrey Half, 1.46! With a negative split! Totally chuffed!

Aim: injury prevention in the run up to london marathon

Doing the running school was fantastic!

I learnt so much and was very impressed with the knowledge and expertise of Andy and Suz. I was able to train for the London marathon effectively, without injury, and got a better time than I had expected. I can’t thank you enough for helping me achieve this life goal of mine. I would highly recommend the course.

Thanks to Sally and Suz my knee pain has now gone. It was really bad whenever I put weight on it, going upstairs was agony. In my mid 70’s, I feared it heralded a possible operation. Sally reassured me this was not the case and after 3 sessions, passed me on to Suz for some rehab.
Suz was very professional in her approach and gave me some simple exercises, after observing very carefully the way I moved.
I really enjoyed the 3 sessions I had with her and 3 months after I started treatment I look forward to continuing my gym membership, which, with her encouragement, I will now be able to carry on.

Aims: injury prevention and to improve his enjoyment of running

Synergy helped me understand where my running style may be the cause of some of the pains and injuries I’d been experiencing (I’d never been taught to run before). They guided me on changes to make to reduce the likelihood of strain or injury.

My improved technique certainly makes me feel better when running and I enjoy it much more.
