Sadly I only met Ian in the twilight of my professional cycling career, however, since meeting him he has somehow managed to halt the recurrent injuries and niggles I used to suffer. I have finally reached a point on the bike where I can ride powerfully and pain free, now swapping to Ironman and challenging him to improve my running. His broad knowledge base and thorough management technique inspires confidence as long as you invest your own time in following his rehabilitation plans.
Ex-Pro Cyclist, Current Ironman and Ironman 70.3 Athlete
Since seeing Ian at the start of the year, he has managed to get me back training at full capacity which I never thought was possible since the issues with my back and knee arose. I have seen numerous physio’s and osteopaths and never felt they were really interested in getting me back training and competing the way Ian has. His passion and eagerness to correct and re-train how the body moves is what kept me coming back and I would highly recommend!

Claire Benton | Sports Massage Therapist
Claire has recently graduated from the University of Worcester with a BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy. During her final placement year, she worked alongside a number of different sports teams, from student to elite high performance athletes. She is currently working as the Sports Therapist at Camberley Town Football Club, providing treatment and rehab to their senior first team players as well as the club’s youth players.
She has a special interest in working with sports teams, particularly in football, providing immediate pitch side treatment as well as the off-field treatment, rehab and recovery strategies that help patients, regardless of sport and exercise status.
Sustaining an injury can be one of the toughest experiences that an athlete will have.

Because of this, her aim is to get patients back to their pre-injury fitness levels as soon as possible by providing the best treatment and support for them that she can.
Her love for sport, combined with her desire to help people continue doing what they love, is what drove her towards this career. It gives her the opportunity to learn and further develop her skills to become the best therapist possible for our patients at seventy9 Sports Therapy.
