I had a phone consultation with Tom, recommended from a friend. Spoke through my ongoing knee issue which multiple specialists have been unable to identify, talked through my history with the problem and immediately Tom recognised the pains I have been experiencing and perfectly described the feelings I have been getting in my knee without me saying it. He then proceeded to explain what the issue was, put a plan in place to ensure it gets better. This was all within 20 minutes. Cannot thank him enough for this and means I can tackle the London marathon knowing what I need to do now.

Lee Clark

I have been suffering with a back problem for months and been to other professionals with no success. Our first session Tom had diagnosed it and actually treated it!! I am now working on a series of exercises and am well on the road to recovery.

Michael Leslie

After living overseas and been lucky enough to have treatment from Australia’s track and field physiotherapist, Shane Lemecke, I told Tom he had pretty big shoes to fill!!! He has more than matched my expectations. He did a fantastic job on my troublesome lower back and is currently treating my shoulders with great results.

Tony Peech

I’ve been working with Tom for nearly a year following complications post surgery. I didn’t think I’d be able to walk without a limp anymore but can now run and walk successfully with no limp. I’m a lot stronger and feel much better, thanks to Tom’s amazing skill. Thank you Tom and Elite!

Simon Bradford

Absolutely fantastic! My physio was Tom Stainer and the quality of the diagnosis, explanation of the issue, treatment and rehabilitation was superb. Highly recommended.

Steve Crockford

Tom at Elite Physical Fitness has been a massive help after I suffered an injury during my training for the London Marathon. All the advice I have received has been really helpful and the exercises I have received have been really well explained. It has given me renewed confidence ahead of my big run.

Rob Fielding

After a painful torn hamstring I saw Tom for rehabilitation to strengthen and condition the muscle. He was fantastic. Thorough, knowledgeable and always ready to answer my questions, he was brilliant.

Simon Mason

Absolutely fantastic! My physio was Tom Stainer and the quality of the diagnosis, explanation of the issue, treatment and rehabilitation was superb. Highly recommended.

Steve Crockford

Tom has been excellent for me! He has tailored my physio to get me back to playing football, pain free, which was my ultimate goal!

He was always available via email when needed and made sure he structured my programme to make small progression without experiencing any setbacks or further disappointment. I highly recommend him and have now referred my girlfriend to him for her back problems.

I cant thank him enough and If I ever need physio again, Tom is my first point of call!


After severely damaging my ankle last year I thought my amateur footballing days were over, until I met Tom at Elite. With his help I have just returned to playing and I feel great.
He understood what playing meant to me and set me a program of guided exercises and monitored my progress.
I cannot thank him enough, great service.

Stuart Brookes

Tom has treated both my boys for football related injuries. His customer service is excellent. Tom is warm and approachable and takes time to understand their problems and to listen. He gave them great exercises which Charlie is doing without fail each night to fix his hamstring as desperate to get back to football.
