In July 2019 I had a serious motorcycle accident causing multiple injuries, most noticeably in the pelvis and hip areas. I spent 10 weeks on the hospital trauma ward unable to stand and a further 12 weeks in a residential rehab unit learning to stand and begin re-learning to walk. On my return home in January 2020, Adrian joined my rehab support team. His in depth knowledge and skill base enabled working in close partnership with my case manager and Physiotherapist, from day one the focus has always been on returning to normal life by basing my sessions and activities on ‘real life’ movements and requirements. Specifically around my hobby of sailing which can have unique body movement & strength requirements.
Flexibility, adaptability and improvisation are very heavy focus points for Adrian, because of this, throughout all of the lockdowns we managed to continue my rehab with twice weekly sessions. Utilising Zoom, some joint ingenuity and limited equipment that I owned, Adrian still managed to create a diverse exercise plan that continued my muscle repair and development and continued my upward trajectory. The result of all of this is that I am able to continue doing everything that I did before the accident, in fact I am probably stronger now than I was before. I still see Adrian twice a week, however instead of working on rehab we now work on advanced personal training!
