MMA Fighter and Birtish Commenwealth Wrestler.
We’ve been supporting Mike for over two years now. We first got involved when providing a screening to develop an injury prevention plan, at the point where Mike was starting his transition from semi-pro wrestling to professional MMA.
We found that after over 15 years of elite wrestling, Mike’s body had a number of worn-out joints and potentially dangerous muscle imbalances. We came up with a physiotherapy plan that would help him confidently break into the elite ranks of MMA, providing the muscular care he would need to sustain his physique.
Andy Hosgood has been supporting Mike throughout the last two years of his career, aiding him with a number of injuries he sustained during major fights. Training with Andy has taken Mike to a place where he is now ready to compete in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, which naturally Mike is thrilled about.
Mike’s relationship with Andy has been aided by his encouragement and his understanding of how to get the most out of an athlete’s body. Andy works closely with Mike’s sports psychologist, and continues to support Andy with an injury prevention strategy in order to see Mike’s career reach new heights.
