Werner

Werner Osborne

Personal Trainer, Strength & Conditioning Coach

 

Werner specialises in rehabilitation. He works alongside physiotherapists, doctors or specialists responsible for treating the injuries or other issues of his clients.

His training programme compliments and aids the treatment his clients are receiving and once rehabilitated, Werner guides them on to the achievement of healthy, balanced bodies through expertly structured post-treatment training programmes.

When working with healthy individuals, Werner’s focus and experience is in the areas of strength training, cardio, speed, balance and flexibility.
Werner says: “It has been hugely rewarding seeing so many of my clients reap the rewards of their hard work and dedication. Working with my clients from a foundation of strengthening hip and shoulder girdles, I have seen fantastic results in first the structural and postural health of my clients which in turn leads to big improvements in strength, body composition and ultimately to much improved levels of confidence in their bodies. They are then better able to enjoy everyday life with a decrease in pain and a significant improvement in body functionality.”
