Region: North Norfolk and Norwich
Leon was introduced to the human anatomy bug by studying Swedish Body Massage and Sports Massage at Lowestoft 12 years ago.
His dream was to work within a top flight team with elite professionals, so next goal was completing the Sports Therapy Health & Fitness degree at the University of Kent and managed to secure a placement at Gillingham FC and get hands on experience as much as possible, by providing treatment to team GB at the Modern Pentathlon, the Samoan National Rugby Team and various sporting events. Leon worked as a Deep Tissue Therapist at the Spinal Injury Clinic in Canterbury, followed by a season in Ayia Napa working as a compare at night and sports therapist by day in local doctors clinic Savvas Economides.
Back to reality in Norfolk gave me the opportunity to reach his goal, working with the first team at Norwich City FC.
Three seasons of treating elite athletes and working alongside valuable healthcare professionals, has now enabled Leon run his own sports Injury business (Bodyfit) working from three clinics covering Norfolk, combining work with Acle United FC. Leon works on the STA event team at the Holkham Hall Outlaw Half distance Triathlon
