Client Testimonials

Angela McCormack

“I have had years of back pain. Paying Physios, Chiro’s and all manner of holistic therapies. Going to Gyms, Pilates and “Keep Fit” classes. Some helped initially and lasted a few days to a few weeks, others made no difference at all and occasionally some made the pain and mobility worse!

My work suffered as did my socialising and life in general. Going for lunch/dinner or even just a coffee sent me into a panic, worrying about how long I’d be sitting and would I be able to?

As a Nurse you would think I’d know better than to lift awkwardly, twist or bend to my detriment but I did! When you’re working in a busy environment, getting the job done was more important. I had inadvertently developed coping mechanisms and bad postures to keep going. Or so I thought!

It all came to a head a few months back (no pun intended!) when I turned over in bed and experienced the most excruciating pain down my back, groin and hip. I literally couldn’t stand up or put any weight on my leg and nothing relieved the pain.

Being an orthopaedic/spinal Operating Theatre Sister in a past life (I know how ironic) I was terrified of my future.

I scoured the internet for Back rehab specialists in Brisbane and Brian kept appearing in my searches. I read Brian’s story and how he became involved in helping others build a strong and pain free back. I knew I had finally found my hope in a brighter future.

When I arrived at Brian’s Gym and Rehab centre I just knew I was in the right place and in good hands from his initial assessment. His exercises and plans are individually prescribed. Brian always ensures you are pain free from each one before moving through the repetitions. Even when you leave his centre you can call, text or email him to discuss the exercise plan or just to answer any questions you may have.

Sorry this testimonial is so long but I can’t emphasise how debilitating my life had become before I met and worked with Brian.

He has given me a renewed strength both physically and mentally and my new favourite daily mantra is “Spinal Health”

Thank you Brian!”

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.”

Laurence Pears

I’ve tried writing a review for Brian a few times, it always results in about fourteen pages (not great for a website). So, I shall try to be as concise as possible.

I’d seen nearly every specialist I could over the period of two years to no lasting avail, my working life suffered dramatically, and I lost out on a lot of work and opportunities. The most helpful advice I got was from Professor Stuart Mcgill’s back rehab book.

Just before the first lockdown in the UK I had a big relapse. With no gyms open or experts to consult in person, I took to the net.

Brian’s name came up and even though he was on the other side of the world I thought, “I’ve nothing else to lose” and emailed him.

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Brian gets it, he’s been there with his own back issues and he knows not just the physical ways to get you out of the situation but also the tole an injury can take on you mentally.

“It depends” is a stock answer that you’ll get used to with Brian, no two injuries are the same and so the advice and direction he gives is tailored to you specifically.

After about six weeks in, I had a breakthrough, my pain residing and my physical capability increasing. Six weeks after that I could do stuff… cool stuff.. like power kiting, cliff jumping and surfing. Compared to the guy had to stop two or three times on route to the till because the shopping was too much and would ease himself into his car inch by inch, the change was astounding.

I’d echo what others have said in their testimonials, it takes hard work and commitment. Pain isn’t forever but exercise is.

Two more pieces of advice I’d offer

  1. Don’t work with anyone else alongside Brian (unless he suggests it) You won’t be able to accurately judge whether the exercises and advice he gives you are taking affect.
  2. Brian’s running a business, but its more than a job for him, he wants to help you. Towards the start of our training, I offered him more money for more sessions per week, in the hopes that more sessions would yield a quicker result. He politely said no and that the program in place and my commitment was what was necessary.

He was right!

A huge thankyou Brian, from me and my family (who does not have to carry things for me anymore)


“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.”
