What Is This Program?
This is a proven 12 week training program helping fix back pain for good.
This program is not based upon a one size fits all approach and is tailored to meet the severity and type of injury you have.
The program starts with free 60 minute initial consultation, where I can assess your current level of injury and discuss the details and success of any treatment you have tried so far.
After the assessment we will have a clear picture of which muscular imbalances and weaknesses are contributing to your back pain.
Over the course of 12 weeks, the goal is to rebuild the muscles that protect the back and help you to remove any bad movement habits that are sensitising the back to pain, leaving you pain free for day-to-day life.
Once we have built a solid foundation, we can progress you safely back into regular training and exercise.
What Happens After the 12 Weeks?
After we have got you out of danger and back to pain free movement, I can then tailor your training to suit any long-term goals that are important to you. Whether that is to build strength, drop bodyfat or even return safely your favourite sport.
Client Results and Testimonials
“The week I turned 40, my back showed me I was now ‘old’ and plunged me into immeasurable pain………
It had never given a twinge despite the best efforts racing & crashing motorbikes (road & enduro), lifting heavy things, jumping off everything, running, training, working hard & generally engaging in an active life. It scared me that my activities of choice may no longer be possible.
The scans showed some damage to the lower back & this was causing sciatica down one leg & seriously limiting movement.
I visited a number of Physio’s over a 2 year period & basically bought shares in Nurofen. The Physio & Nurofen would reduce the pain to a just bearable level, but it was always there. Competing in dirt bike events and general training were experiences in how much pain could be endured.
In December 2015, I saw an advert for Brian’s services & still being in regular pain, I got in contact.
Brian introduced me to a range of exercises & stretches that served to balance my body, strengthen the protective muscles, increase my flexibility, take pressure off the back & limit further damage.
Within a month, I had days with no pain. Within 2 months I was integrating the concepts into regular training & 5 months in, we’re starting to work on exercises to really strengthen the area. If that’s not impressive enough, my wife reckons she can now see abs!
I’m living with almost no back pain and cannot express what a difference this makes to everyday life. I can think more clearly, be active with my kids & able to ride, jump & lift with limited impact.
If you have back pain, Brian is an expert! You won’t regret it!”
“Having suffered back problems for the past four years I have visited numerous GP’s, Osteo’s and Physio’s all with limited to no success and plenty of $’s down the pan.
Coming back from a trip to Queenstown with my back having gone on the first day meaning that I missed out on all the activities that had been booked I was starting to think that this was just how it was going to be going forward. I had all but given up on camping, kayaking, cycling and all the outdoors fun stuff that made up the majority of my weekends.
I saw Brian’s advert on Facebook and thought I would give the free consultation a go.
He came across as highly knowledgeable in the area of back rehabilitation and for the first time someone was talking to me about a structured, individualized training plan targeted at my specific problem areas (L4/L5) as opposed to the one size fits all approach that I had heard so many times before.
On the first day I walked/hobbled in I was in a lot of pain. Having worked out the correct exercises it was a case of going through these on a weekly basis at Brian’s gym and then homework to do throughout the week. Within two weeks the pain had subsided dramatically and within four weeks I was pain free.
During the period of in-activity I had put on a fair bit of weight. Outside of the back rehab Brian also put together a nutrition plan for me which saw me lose 5 kilo’s in 4 weeks as well as a drop of 3% body fat. This was not a result of dieting but purely through changing eating habits.
All in all after eight weeks it is going very well. I am back on my bike twice a week and in the kayak again at weekends.
Brian will put a plan in place with regards to exercise and diet specifically targeted for your individual needs and then hold you accountable for your own efforts outside of your one on ones with him. It also helps that he is a good bloke with a great attitude to getting you back to where you need to be.”
“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.”
About the coach
Brian is a qualified trainer, strength coach and corrective exercise specialist with 10 years of experience.
But his main strength lies in having to overcome is own serious back injury 3 years ago:
“Following some overzealous coaching by an other trainer, I was left in constant pain and unable to stand up straight for a period of 8 weeks. I felt like a crippled old man, with a twisted and spiteful lower back.
Fearing every sneeze, cough and trip to the bathroom – simple day-to-day tasks seemed almost impossible.
During this time I was able to acid-test a range of rehabilitation programs and methods, I simply discarded what did not work and refined what did.”
Having been through the process himself allows Brian to understand how best to approach your rehabilitation, being acutely aware of each little movement can cause sudden and crippling pain if you are not careful.
Since his injury, Brian has dedicated himself to helping others overcome their injuries and get back to feeling strong and healthy again.
