Welcome to The Fibro Guy
Due to my own personal experience of chronic pain and years of working with those with lifelong health conditions, I know that I can support those even with the more severe mobility and health conditions; supporting people to regain a more active and pain-free lifestyle..
- Lauren, who suffers with Class 3 Ehlers-Danlos, went from dislocating multiple times a day and having practically immobile hips to surfing in Mexico and wearing high heels again
- Cheryl lost her life for over 15 years to fibromyalgia and cluster-tic; spending most of her days in bed, riddled with pain. She's now fighting back - boxing, circuit training and spending time with her family out of the house.
- Linda fell on a tent peg, injuring her coccyx and spent many months unable to walk or sleep properly. Today she is now back at work full time and practically pain free.
- Angela couldn't walk 100 metres without hip and knee pain caused by her fibromyalgia. Today she is doing shuttle runs in the gym and only suffers from very slight fatigue.
- Ellie suffered with fibromyalgia and ehlers-danlos so badly that it caused her to nearly drop out of University. After working together, she is able to get through each and every single day and is on her way to earning her degree.

Although my routines will never completely remove all pain associated with conditions such as Fibromyalgia, they will ensure that you have many more good days over bad days and that your pain is reduced. Everybody is an individual case, some people benefit much more than others when it comes to these programmes however, everyone can expect to see some degree of result.
If you have Hypermobility, we work towards reducing your dislocations. (like Lauren above) and if you have fibromyalgia, we will work towards reducing pain and fatigue levels.
Through working closely together, we will identify the root cause of specific pain, address your individual imbalances and return your body to correct alignment.
Within a week we will have developed a management programme that will help to build strength, reduce fatigue, identify triggers in foods and your daily life, but more importantly, reduce pain.
Just big big thank you for everything you or doing for us all. You are a gem! The Fibromyalgia support group love your classes and the massage you have arranged for us after our session.North East Support Rep
Having Fibromyalgia and all the ailments the worst being the pain and fatigue, you would think that exercise would be the farthest thing from our minds... It was until we met Adam who is an amazing person, patient, understanding and a font of knowledge. Adam is a real inspiration and although we are a team, give us individual time making sure we are not pushing ourselves too far... I would highly recommend Adam not only to fibro sufferers but to any one who thinks they would like to give exercise a try you wont be disappointed.Judith Culham-Elsdon
It is great being able to tell someone how the fibro is affecting you on a day to day basis and not have that person look at you like you are mad. Adam totally understands how this is affecting my body and my mind, and takes it in his stride. I feel totally confident and at ease with him, and the session I have with him is great, informative and relaxed. I would recommend anyone with fibro to get in touch with himJune Scott
Adam is a compassionate trainer who understands fibromyalgia and knows what it's like to work with limitations. For over a year I looked for someone to help me exercise whilst not pushing me so much that I have a flare up, and now I've found Adam I'm not letting go! He's been amazing from the start and has really helped with my day to day confidence, posture and knowledge of what's best to do. Honestly one of the best things you can do if you have any sort of chronic pain condition is get in touch and start the journey to managing your mood and pain levels through controlled, well researched exercises. I was in that dark place where nothing seems achievable..but it's amazing the change it's made to my life in just a month, I can't wait to see where I am this time next year!Alison Morton
I came across Adam by chance while looking through FB. His blogs about Cheryl had me hooked. I called Adam and made an appointment to see him and started gentle low impact exercising the following week. I would never have thought that exercise would help pain. Adam never pushes you further than your limits, if it hurts them stop, pain is not what you are aiming for. I had been off sick from work for months when I starting seeing Adam and was starting to think I would never make it back to my job. With correcting my posture and gentle exercises I am doing great and returning to work next week. Adam is a gentle, very compassionate Person and would and already have recommend him to manyJulie Ryan
I went to see Adam after seeing him popping up on the Fibro support page. I'd been told by my pain management clinic they could no longer help. I was in a lot of upper body pain, neck, shoulders, arms, but also couldn't walk far without pain starting in hips and knees. He spotted bad posture the minute I walked through the door. It took a couple more weeks then he figured out what was going wrong with my knees and hips. The guy is a genius. He makes pain go away!Christine Pearson
I met Adam about 4 months ago. I have found his training and techniques very helpful . I am now in a position where I am able to walk/ exercise without being in pain all of which have improved my wellbeing. I would recommend Adam to anyone, he is friendly, helpful and very patient. He really understands the frustration we go through with this silent illness. Don't know what I would do without him. Thanks Adam.Angela Hymers
