Philippa Lock - Registered Osteopath and Sports therapist

Philippa Lock

I am a Registered Osteopath and Sports therapist, with a Master’s degree from the London School of Osteopathy. I also am a Certified Running Technique Specialist.

Throughout my career I’ve worked extensively with both private clients and professional teams including Fulham Football Club and the England Women’s Rugby Squad. I was delighted to have the opportunity to teach sports massage at the Raworth International College of Nutrition and Sports Therapy.

Drawing on my knowledge, experience and extended study, I treat a wide range of problems from the first niggle to more complex injuries. I love helping clients overcome setbacks to achieve their fitness goals – it’s such a rewarding part of my job.

In my spare time I love running, especially on trails, and participate in events of various distances. I enjoy swimming and practise Pilates and yoga regularly.

Theika Botterill - Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

Theika Botterill

I am a sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapist with a BSc in Physiotherapy from Southampton University. With over twenty years’ experience in the field and a strong sporting background, I have built up extensive knowledge of post-operative rehabilitation.

My experience comes from working in the NHS and with private clinics and sports teams. I have toured the UK and Europe with premier league hockey teams – working directly with athletes has really helped me understand the frustrations injuries can cause.

I firmly believe that prevention is better than cure. With that in mind, I focus on optimising function and movement of your entire body to reduce the chance of injury. I provide a full range of physiotherapy treatments including manual techniques, acupuncture and exercise advice to get you fully functional in as little time as possible.

I am a keen sportswomen, and enjoy hockey, running, biking and lots of British Military Fitness sessions!

Andy Cornelius - Qualified running biomechanics and technique specialist

Andy Cornelius

I have a degree in Sport Rehabilitation and have studied for a MSc in Strength and Conditioning. I’m also a qualified running biomechanics and technique specialist – focusing on helping runners of all abilities improve their performance and efficiency while reducing the risk of injury.

My experience includes injury rehabilitation and sports therapy for athletes of varying disciplines, including premiership footballers. Through my years in sports rehabilitation, I’ve developed and enhanced some approaches of my own, including video technique analysis and the creation of individual exercise programmes.

I have trained with Gait & Motion and am able to analyse customers using the 2D and 3D Footscan® for the prescription and fitting of Phits® orthotics.

I know how much difference effective, empathetic treatment can make. I’m a keen runner and mountain biker, and have experienced injury and treatment first-hand. I’ve seen how effective it can be – and thanks to the right treatment, returned to participating in events and even completed the odd triathlon!

April Lines - Registered Sports Therapist

April Lines

I am a Registered Sports Therapist with a passion for supporting others, optimising their performance and aiding in their recovery journey. With a Bachelor’s degree and a decade of hands-on experience, I’ve acquired extensive knowledge of injuries from different sports, ranging from running and swimming to rugby and basketball, and I have provided treatment and advice to empower athletes to reach their full potential and excel in their respective sports.

During my practice, I have a strong focus on manual therapy, working in and around the injury to ensure it is fully supported, as well as providing strength and mobility exercises and advice to ensure you can recover as quickly as possible. I believe that a balance of active and passive rehabilitation techniques will allow your body to regain its full protentional.

Having recently returned to running after welcoming my second child, I understand the challenges of post-pregnancy changes and have a keen interest in supporting women in a similar position. As well as my professional expertise, I bring a personal touch to help individuals achieve a balanced and informed return to running.

Beyond working as a sports therapist, I have been a PE teacher, weaving my commitment to well-being into education. My heart lies in holistic support, evident in my time spent with the school’s autistic unit. I bring this approach into the clinic to ensure that I can support you as a whole, diving into psycho-social, your goals and other physical factors, not just your injury. Helping people isn’t just a job – it’s my passion, extending beyond the boundaries of the sports field.


Elle Fulton - Pilates teacher at Fitstuff

Elle Fulton

I am the Pilates teacher at Fitstuff.

As a professional dancer, Pilates and Yoga have always been an important part of my life. However, following a serious back injury in 2010, I decided it was time for me to move away from the demands of stage life and I began the long journey of rehabilitation through Pilates and Yoga. I am grateful to those mindful and healing disciplines for helping me to manage and heal the pain, despite all the hard times I had to face, physically and emotionally.

Since then, in 2012, I completed my comprehensive teacher training in Pilates and remedial exercise through Alan Herdman, the pioneer of Pilates in the UK. More recently, I obtained a Yoga and Meditation Teacher Diploma from Yogacampus in 2019.

Because of my own previous ordeal in dealing with injuries and from my extensive experience in helping rehabilitate clients with multiple and various conditions, I strongly believe that everyone, no matter what fitness level they are at, would benefit from building a strong, supple and balanced body for general health, good posture and injury prevention.

I believe everyone can benefit from a dedicated Pilates class to help becoming more aware of their own body, prevent injuries or incorporating core stability and strength to their own existing training regime.
