We have been working along-side Move4 over the last 12 months. The quality and professionalism of their team is second-to-none. We recommend the majority of our members to their service, and continuously receive fantastic feedback. In particular Fran and Nathan have been particularly amazing!

Easy to book an appointment and the website had lots of useful information. It was helpful to be able to complete the assessment form beforehand as I was able to really detail the difficulties I have been having. Frances, who I saw was very friendly and encouraging. The excercises she advised for my difficulties have literally changed my life- I have been wfh since lockdown predominantly and sitting for long hours has had a detrimental effect on my back. I put helpseeking off for so long but couldn't any longer. I'm glad I took the risk as Frances instantly alleviated all my worries when I met her. Would highly recommend. Don't put it off like me!

Had a brilliant experience today with Lee. I was assessed then he addressed some of the issues with daily homework to do with multiple exercises. Hands down Move 4 was head and shoulders above Three Shires!! I didnt get any of the above on my first visit with them unfortunately.

Second appointment with Lee for a niggling knee issue preventing longer run training. He is very thorough and patient, ensuring no stone is unturned in getting to the bottom of the issue and putting a plan in place to resolve it long term, strengthen the glutes and free off the hip flexors! Lots of challenging exercises to work on, but already I can feel the difference. Can’t recommend him enough, brilliant. Thank you!!
