What we do
As the cliché goes: “There is no I in team”. Let’s get you on board the team, make you director even — after all you’re the most important member.
Call it bad business sense but we don’t want you to have to come back for the same thing, so let’s get to the real cause of the problem. We’ll use all our knowledge and skills to give you the best treatment, advice and self-management skills. You’ll leave feeling like a new and improved updated version of yourself.
Easy does it too, let’s not rush things — with longer appointment times in the best space in town, we don’t just push you through and give you a bunch of stick figure exercises you’ll never remember. You’ll get your own specific exercises sent via email in a fancy format — with pictures, descriptions and video links — pretty flash eh!
“Too many weights, not enough speed work” someone once said, we’re not about pushing weight, it needs to be useful–functional to what you want to get back into. This is why we have our own rehab space that you gets you moving correctly to ensure you don’t need to keep coming back.
Fix the cause, not just the problem – that’s our mantra.

Sports massage, deep tissue release or a bit of a rub — we don’t mind what you call it as long as you feel better afterwards. Massage can improve soft tissue flexibility, reduce fatigue, aid blood flow to reduce muscle tension. In other words it helps reduce the aches and pains, whether caused by sport, injury, or the many stresses and strains of modern everyday life. Our massage therapist at Urban Athlete is the best and we should know as we’ve put them to the test — on us!
Muscle Balance Assessments
Elite athletes have these regularly as a part of their management, so why shouldn’t you? This is a valuable way to look at the way your body is moving and performing and pick up any underlying imbalances-such as tightness, weakness or even too much strength. These can all impair your performance and lead to pain and injuries. You will be given a specific exercise regime to ensure you are addressing these issues and training correctly.
Sports Doctors / Specialists
What if you’ve done yourself some serious damage or you’re not getting better? We’re pretty ruthless on this, if it’s serious or you’re not progressing as we would expect — we won’t waste your time and we won’t leave you hanging either. We’ll get you off for further investigations and specialist assessment — not from just who happens to be the easiest to get into, but the ones that we would want to go to if it was us in your position.
