Our Athletes

We already look after some pretty special people.

What services do we offer?

We work with athletes who are from a wide range of sports. This means, our services need to be varied enough to include both performance and speed training as well as sports injury relief. We also offer an elite membership package to those few select athletes who are at the top of their game and require this kind of service.

In all of our services, we are focused on quality rather than quantity. Our elite membership package of services is provided to top athletes to help them to optimise their recovery from injury. It also helps them improve their performance, by removing the stress out of these aspects for them and their coaches, with whom we work closely.

How do we work with our current Athletes?

We work alongside our athletes to help them achieve their goals. Most athletes have an existing support structure that we try and accommodate. For new athletes who would like to come under the care of our athlete services, we provide bespoke care packages designed to enhance their athletic performance.

Our team is consistent in their approach to managing athletes from all sports. We establish what recovery, regeneration and performance is needed to help your perform at a high level. As well as elite athletes, we look after a wide range of different abilities.

What type of Athletes do we work with?

The types of athletes we look after ranges from elite international athletes to keen amateur sports men and women, who just want to stay in shape for their sport.  We equally enjoy the challenges faced at both ends of the spectrum and give every individual the same level of care and attention for their specific needs.

High Jump

Greatest achievement: Recent achievement - Personal Best (PB) 1.80m Jan 2017

What is your greatest achievement? Getting back on target after suffering from glandular fever which took me out of training for a whole winter season and caused the next couple of years of competing to go downhill. It's nice to be able to say that after 3 or 4 years of no major improvements in my jumping, that I have finally gone above and beyond what I was jumping before the illness.

What is your greatest ambition? To be an Olympian/ World class athlete.

What is your inspiration for competing? The feeling I get after doing well is the main aspect that keeps me going and wanting to compete. It's the best way to show how all the blood, sweat and tears were worth it and how they will continue to be worth it in the future.

What is the hardest thing about your sport? It's hard not always being able to be a 'normal teenager' in the sense of missing out on certain events because of training or competing. However, I do balance all aspects of my life as best as I possibly can. To be honest, I see what I'm doing (training and competing to the level I am) as far more exciting than anything that my friends are doing.

What do you do in your spare time? I am currently studying 1 A Level at Sixth form, having already completed 2 others, so I am in school most days but only for an hour or so. I also have a part time job at 'Next' in Bishops Stortford to help fund some of my expenses for training and to gain experience in the Fashion Industry. I would like to be a Fashion Buyer after hopefully pursuing an athletics career. I also like to have time to see friends as I'm very much a 'people person' and enjoy socialising with a variety of people.

Where do you want to be in 5 years, 10 years time etc? I would like to be able to say that I have represented Great Britain in a major championship. Ultimately I would love to be able to compete in an Olympics, but for the next few years I would like to get experience of being part of a GB team and traveling to different countries. I would like to continue building up and progressing steadily to the top of my sport.

What is the best feature of Perfect Balance Clinic? The best feature of Perfect Balance Clinic is having many of the components I need for my sport in one place and having the whole team support me from all angles. Most importantly, it has allowed me to gain huge amounts of strength with good but tough sessions with Phil, and equally has given me the time to recover with weekly sports massages from Aaron. I like that the whole team talk to each other about all aspects of my training and well-being so that I as an athlete get the best treatment and results possible.

Greatest achievement: Reaching the World Youth Final

What is your greatest achievement? Reaching the World Youth Final

What is your greatest ambition? Qualifying for an Olympic Team

What is your inspiration for competing? The buzz and excitement you feel when you get a PB or achieve something you didn't believe was possible, that feeling inspires me to compete.

What is the hardest thing about your sport? I think the hardest thing about the sport is keeping a strong mentality, you need mentally to be able push yourself to your bodies limit, and when competing you need to believe in your mind that you can achieve anything.

What do you do in your spare time? I love shopping, eating, meeting up with friends, I love dancing, I'm quite creative so I love drawing and designing things.

Where do you want to be in 5 years, 10 years time etc? I haven't really put a time scale of where I want to be, but I just want to have achieved things I didn't think were possible and to still love the sport that I'm in.

What is the best feature of Perfect Balance Clinic? I would say there is one best feature of Perfect balance, I think all aspects are great and I love how supportive of each individual person they are.

Greatest achievement: Being selected for England in the 2015 CPRISA World games

What is your greatest achievement? My greatest achievement so far was being selected for England in the 2015 CPRISA World games and winning Gold in both the 800m and 1500m becoming a world champion in each.

What is your greatest ambition? My biggest and greatest ambition is to compete in the Paralympics. To wear that international vest and do my country proud.

What is your inspiration for competing? I have always been sporty particularly at school, but having a disability mean't that I wasn't always selected and involved in the sports teams. Now I am in Athletics I strive to be the best to show that I can compete to the highest ability. I love the buzz and the adrenaline rush you get as you step onto the start line, your chance to show everyone what you are made of and what you are capable of, to run as fast and as hard as possible.That great feeling when you cross the finish line with no energy left in your body giving it 110%. When it all comes together and those months of hard graft and training have paid off and you make that new PB, makes it all worthwhile and proud of who you are!

What is the hardest thing about your sport? The hardest thing about my sport I would say would be the training sessions, pushing your body to the limits. Running hard and fast whilst your legs are burning at the same time and pushing through it.Its especially hard as my disability holds me back as my left side gets tired it is unable to keep up with the rest of me, so I have to put in twice the amount of effort in to make sure I do not drop my speed. Recovery of my left side is also not as quick as my right sid. Its especially hard as my disability holds me back as my left side gets tired it is unable to keep up with the rest of me, so I have to put in twice the amount of effort in to make sure I do not drop my speed. Recovery of my left side is also not as quick as my right side

What do you do in your spare time? In my spare time if I am not training or in the Gym I like going to watch football at Spurs, I have a season ticket and go to all of the home games with a few mates. I also like socialising with friends, going to the Cinema and trying other sports like golf and go-karting

Where do you want to be in 5 years, 10 years time etc? In 5 years time I want to be selected to compete in the next Paralympics. In 10 years time I would love to still be competing but also being able to use my experience to help others to compete at a high level and achieve in the Sport. As a qualified personal trainer I would like start my own personal traing business for people with disabilities to help them get fit, active or strive to compete at the highest level.

What is the best feature of Perfect Balance Clinic? The best feature of Perfect Balance is the variety of different things they can help you with. Such as sports massage, physiotherapy S&C and for me in particular was my body muscle balance. All of these things are important support for atheletes. I also like the the atmosphere at the clinic, everyone I have met has been really nice and helpful in every way possible and this has made me feel more positive about myself and achieving my goals, when I have great people behind me.

Karen Barrizta

Tennis Player

 

Summary: I am a professional tennis player and the second best player in Denmark after Caroline Wozniacki. I have been dedicated to this sport for a long time and work hard to improve my game to become a better player, and I strive for success every day.

About Me: I have won a lot of Danish Championship throughout my career starting when I was 10 years old. I quickly became part of the national team of Denmark and was travelling to different tournaments around the world, such as the European Championships and big international tournaments.
I really enjoyed it, because it helped me adapt to the lifestyle of travelling and competing on a high level.

Best Moments: One of the best moments in my junior career was playing the quarterfinal in Australian Open, as well as competing in French Open, where I saw all the big “stars”/players competing. It was so inspiring and such a great experience. Just being there was truly amazing and that’s where I want to compete again.

The Dream: My dream would be to play on the WTA tour, the big Grand Slams and being able to afford coaches etc. to travel with me. That would mean the world to me. The difference between the top players and the ones trying to be are infinitesimally small. Those are the differences I’m working on daily to improve.
