Single personal training with Sophie
I would like to welcome and thank you for visiting Darren Bettison Wellbeing Service.
I am a fully qualified Biomechanics Coach, Sports Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer with over 13 years experience working within the health and fitness industry. During this time, I have gained invaluable experience with a variety of clients.
At 12 years of age, I was diagnosed with Ankolosying Spondilitus. Through years of limited mobility and pain, I have learnt to manage the condition by keeping mobile, moving freely and trialling other exercises. This really helps me to move better and lead a normal lifestyle. Researching this condition was where my passion grew to not only become a personal trainer but to study recognised areas of weakness and how to manage those weaknesses.
For several years now, I have had the pleasure of working with Sophie Wells MBE, Paralympic, world and European gold medalist in dressage. I work with Sophie to ensure her body is working efficiently, highlighting any mechanical weakness and ensuring strength and stability, essential for riding and technique.
