Clare's Journey

'I now do regular strength training which I have never done before'

Thinking back, what was the problem you needed to solve when you contacted Craig?

I wanted to find the right level of training to do online, to enable me to return to playing tennis after lockdown.

When we did return to being able to play, my goal changed to be to try to reduce injury and sustain my fitness.


What do you feel you’ve achieved during your time working with Craig?

I have generally felt stronger and initially, when I returned to tennis after a number of weeks off, it was absolutely fine to pick back up where we left off which was very reassuring.


What’s different in your life today compared to before you started working with Craig?

I now do regular strength training which I have never done before.


If you had to pick one thing, what would be your highlight so far? Which thing are you most pleased about?

For me, the highlight is generally feeling physically better. 

Craig has helped me maintain my motivation to continue training. Previously I have tried a few different things but never managed to continue beyond a few weeks. 

The workouts feel sustainable in the long term, alongside playing tennis, which for me, is great!


How has Craig helped you solve your problem? What do you particularly like about his approach and delivery?

The real strength of working with Craig for me has been the delivery of the online sessions which have just worked really well.

Craig is very clear with his delivery and is easy to follow at a level I feel stretched, but not overburdened. 


What are your health and fitness goals from this point onwards? Are they any different to before you started working with Craig?

When I started with Craig it was lockdown! As a really keen tennis player, my goal was to try to maintain my fitness level to allow me to return to playing as restrictions were lifted.

I felt the work during the strength training I have done with Craig has prepared me well for when I returned to playing, as when I did return, I was at a similar level compared to before lockdown.

As tennis restrictions were lifted and I started to play more, I was still able to do the online strength sessions with Craig which was great.


If someone was to ask you your thoughts about working with Craig, what would you say?

I would highly recommend working with Craig.

Everyone has different personal goals and mine was fitness for tennis.

The programme delivered by Craig works well for what I want and it is very easy to follow.
