Client Testimonials

Dan O’Keefe

“I was in a high speed motorbike accident on the racetrack because, in the words of other racers, “I ran out of talent”.

The broken bones were healing well, but then my back started feeling terrible, probably due to aggravating the wear and tear of playing rugby as a prop for many years.

I consulted numerous doctors, specialists and physios and was prescribed all kinds of meds and suffered many treatments both conventional and unconventional without any success.

I was weighing up the option of surgery as one specialist advised when I came across Brian’s advert and went to see him as a ‘hail mary pass’.

I was immediately impressed by his down to earth manner and breadth of knowledge about anatomy. I learned he also rode a motorbike and had treated many bike and sports injuries so signed up immediately.

Turned out that Brian is a guru! He rehabbed my back from me being unable to perform a normal daily life to being able to squat and deadlift. He gave me the knowledge and individualised exercise regime to ensure that I can keep my back in shape for the long term.

Brian has an uncanny ability to know just how far he can push you and is excellent at motivating you to stick with the necessary but monotonous rehab exercises at home.

I recommend Brian absolutely unreservedly. He not only saved me from surgery and has set me up for a normal daily life but got me to me a point where I can lift weights that I would never have contemplated before my bike accident due to old sports injuries.

Brian is a dead-set genius. If you’re prepared to listen and do the work then you simply must consult him.”

“First off – I can’t recommend Brian highly enough!

I had serious back pain for many months, including shooting sciatic pain down my right leg – at times I was relying on strong anti-inflammatories and codeine to get through the day and to be able to get to sleep.

I tried multiple physios, osteos and chiropractors but I the situation was never improved for more than a day or two. I had MRI scans and the diagnosis of two slipped discs meant being advised that surgery was likely to only way to improve the issue. I am a keen 5-a-side soccer player but had missed months due to the back pain.

I stumbled across Brian in my Facebook feed, and I must confess my first instinct for any adverts on social media is that its highly unlikely to give what is promised, but by that stage I was willing to try anything so I got in touch.

I had a meet and greet session with Brian where he looked at my issues, did a few basic tests and quickly re-assured me that there were ways other than surgery that should get effective results.

I signed up for a 12 week program to begin with, but I was so pleased with the progress and results that I continued to have sessions with Brian every week for 18 months!

Brian is really experienced and has the knack of explaining in simple terms what is likely causing pain and discomfort, and coming up with effect plans to strengthen certain muscles to reduce imbalances in order to address the problem – and the pain.

I saw results very quickly, as Brian predicted. We worked on some basic exercises which has now set me up to be able to manage my back pain. I am 99% pain free now. I do on occasion start to feel a bit of a niggle again, this has without exception been at times where I have been a bit lazy and had stopped doing the exercises.

Every time I’ve found that kick starting the basic exercises that Brian has drilled into me has always stopped the niggle turning into a serious and painful problem.

I continued to see Brian after the pain had gone as I found it was a great motivator for me to keep up my exercise regime – he would really keep me honest.

This program does require commitment, it isn’t a magic bullet – you do need to put in the work – but for me, I was always keen to exercise so this wasn’t a problem, and compared to the discomfort I was in or with the expense and mixed results (not to mention months of rehab) from an operation really meant there was no choice to be made.

All the best Brian, and thanks again, fixing my back was genuinely life changing for me.”


“I just wanted to say thanks to you Brian, I will miss your evil sessions down in Melbourne.

When I called him up 4 months ago I was struggling to put make up on without leaning on the wall for support. My back was that bad.

I used to play volleyball and did some strength training and in the process, I have managed to hurt myself. I always thought the issue was the back and xrays and MRIs confirmed it, but with Brian we have managed to identify the real cause behind it: my non existent core strength and funny hips that get locked up easy, throwing my whole back/glute situation out of place.

We have worked together on identifying a few basic movements that are really beneficial for me and that I always need to do before getting into my strength training exercise.

Brian has also taken a lot of pleasure in showing me the multiple ways my body and me have found to cheat over the years, while training. Slowly working to re-learn certain mouvements to make them more effective. It is a slow but sure process!

Today, after 4 months of work together I can put make up on standing on one foot (on a good day 🙂 and I have gone back to do some basic strength exercises like split squats and barbel squats. Working on the evil abs wheel too!

I personally recommend having a word with Brian if you feel like your back is not what it used to be, no matter how bad it is, you have to start somewhere and I am sure he will find some targeted exercise routine that will help you improving your day to day and possibly feeling like you used to 10 years ago!”

“About 8 years ago while working in the tree industry, I had a run in with a 350kg log that came swinging from a tree we were removing. It narrowly missed my spine, (fracturing 5 Transverse process attached to the lower spine, Brian you can explain what they are to people if you like!!)

After the bruising went down a couple of months later I realised that I was in for one hell of a journey to try and get back into any sort of shape to lead a normal life.
I had always been active, Climbing trees, playing sport, swimming, you name it, I’ve tried it.

I got to a stage after a couple of years that I could somewhat function, but only for a short time, after any sort of strenuous exercise/activity I knew that the pain would be coming back, with a vengeance, so I gradually start making excuses for not training or not trying really, born out of frustration from thinking the pain was just going to return, so why bother.

I have seen all the usual suspects over the last few years, Osteo, Chiro, Physio, basically anything with an O , I’ve tried, and they would patch the pain for a week or two, before the next spasm, and few days/ weeks not being able to walk, afraid to bend down, sneeze, sleep to long in one position, the list goes on.

The pain was getting so bad recently that I basically missed my younger sister’s wedding, I could not stand up or even sit down without excruciating pain.
I have a 3 year old boy who I couldn’t pick up, and he would say to me ”is your back sore daddy, I will rub it for you” This had to stop!!!!!

So after seeing an ad for Brian Ellicott promising to fix my back pain, I thought why not, you’ve tried everything else!

Since starting with Brian 3 months ago, I am glad to say that I have had no spasms, no pain, he has identified my weaknesses and addressed them straight away. He is constantly educating me on the right and wrong way to exercise. I am now back training regularly without the fear of harm.

And the best part of all, is I can now pick my boy up and play like normal parents do.

I would highly recommend Brian to anyone who has back or any other injuries for that matter, where they are struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
