    Lara has been excellent for solving any issue I’ve had with the app. Etc.
    The videos/phases are excellent and well thought through, with reminders dotted throughout. I like the way you can go over positioning with the individual exercises which go through in more detail. It’s given me something positive to focus on through lockdown too! My back and core definitely feels stronger. Thanks BIS! Keep up the good work!

    Michael and Lara are passionate professionals, who are approachable and happy deal with individual questions directly. There is a huge amount of very pertinent information both written and on videos for someone seeking to BANISH PAIN and future proof their backs against it. The on-line community – website blog and FB – are so supportive and friendly too. So much encouragement to STICK WITH THE PROGRAM with reasons born of real time clinical experience. Cheaper than the gym too😅 BIG THANK YOU Lara and Michael!

    I have found the exercise phases so helpful, I started with phase 1 and have worked up to phase 3. I now have for more confidence in my back so much so that I am starting to play golf again. I feel stronger than I did before I slipped a disc.
    I would recommend this program to anyone even those who don’t think they need it, you will get a great benefit, a feeling of well being and strength.
    Couple all this with the great advice from Michael & Lara it really makes this program a must.

    I have found BIS to be a fantastic support and only wish I had discovered them earlier. The stages are well explained and the programme is challenging, enjoyable but also meticulously planned with safety paramount. Michael and Lara also respond personally very quickly and are extremely friendly and professional. I highly recommend this to anybody who has suffered back injuries and is looking for a way to get back on track.

    I find the whole BIS approach to be thorough.
    A short visit it is interesting and helpful, but the proposition becomes even more valuable over time as you (and your body) get familiar with the process.
    Worth trying!

    I highly recommend the Back in Shape Program and have learnt so much from Michael and Lara. The program builds in difficulty and if you are ever in any doubt about whether you should move to the next phase Michael and Lara are always there to answer your questions .

    I discovered that I had become quite lazy in my movements and had got into a habit of not engaging my core. Once I realised this error, I made myself engage my core when moving and was really mindful of how I moved when doing different activities. This along with the exercises, has noticeably improved my back pain. Once I got onto phase 4, I loved the workouts! You can workout with Lara demonstrating the moves. It felt good to be exercising again while still looking after your back.

    The live videos that Michael and Lara do have been really useful. I particularly like the ice or heat video and the video about activities that cause back pain.

    I found the Facebook group a really lovely community of people. Questions can be put to Michael and Lara and they are always answered quickly. I wonder if these two ever take a day off!

    I have been in the program for 3 months and have now decided to leave as I feel like I have been educated enough to carry on by myself. The Back in Shape program has been really good value for money with the amount of help and support I have received.

    I wish Michael and Lara all the best and thank them for getting my back back in shape.

    I regret not finding Back in Shape earlier. I suffered for an incredibly long time, taking days of work as I was unable to get out of bed and walk without crying in pain.
    I was so glad I was able to be treated non-invasively and with such dignity. Michael and Lara’s team are really kind and treated me with empathy and listened even when I went off topic!
    I felt a significant amount of relief following my first month of treatment and now I am able to almost do all the exercises that are recommended. I can walk, stretch and workout out as well I did a few years ago!
    I am very grateful for your support and I wish you all the best! 🙂
    Hopefully get to see you again soon 🙂

    Sometimes in my life I come across people who are just the right folk at just the right moment. Michael and Lara are two of these people.

    I have no idea how I came across Back in Shape website but am so grateful I did. What they offer is professional support, information, education and most importantly caring. The video’s make everything so clear. I can check I am doing the exercises correctly. I am doing phase 1 and 2 and beginning to see my way forward to recovery.

    Well done to you both of you for putting together this amazing resource.

    Thank you so much

    Having suffered severe back pain for over 20 years and had three unsuccessful procedures at a hospital Pain Clinic I am delighted to report that within two weeks at Back in Shape my pain had reduced significantly and that two months later I had gone from using medication and a TENS machine every day to not using any form of pain relief and being pain free. I can walk for over an hour without any back pain and actually enjoy the exercises. I would recommend Back in Shape to anyone suffering from any back pain. Thank you.

    I have only recently joined Back in Shape Online.

    Michael and Lara are very kind, reassuring and supportive.
    I really appreciate the underpinning knowledge that accompanies the various stages of the programme.
    The videos are so useful in enabling someone like myself to understand how the exercises need to be done.
    Being able ask if you are unsure in any way is invaluable to me.

    I am in the older age group ( 69 ) and struggling alot with my back issues right now, but I am so grateful that I do have hope for the future.

    I would highly recommend anyone with back or neck problems to give the BIS program a try. I have suffered with back and neck problems for just over two years and this all started from my accident when I had a fall causing serious injury to my foot, this resulted in major surgery to repair damage then the onset of back and neck problems.

    After a lot of visits to hospitals and consultants resulting in MRI scans, epidural nerve root Injections, facet joint injections, Physio and all the usual stuff I was told the only way forward was a surgical solution or just put up with limited mobility and constant pain. I was not ready for the risk associated with decompression surgery so was desperate to find a way forward.

    I was really at a very low point mentally as up until my accident I had always been very active and a regular at the gym, used to going for long walks with my dog and really enjoyed cycling.

    Although I knew there was a lot of people with much bigger problems to manage than mine it was still very difficult for me to come to terms with the overall prognosis from scans and then by chance stumbled across the BIS program and decided to have a virtual consultation with Michael.

    From my very first virtual consultation in May 2020 I felt a sense of positivity and inspiration from Michael and a feeling that I could certainly improve my current situation without surgical solution. Michael certainly helped me come to terms mentally with my current condition and give me the much needed strength and inspiration to move forward with the BIS program.

    I started Phase 1 BIS program around end of May 2020 with full support from Michael, Lara and BIS Team behind me. The support, advice and encouragement from Michael has been nothing short of inspirational and at that time I would never have thought that I could make any improvement.

    I am now working on the Phase 3 #1 & 2 routine and 7 months into the program, this has not been without set backs however throughout this journey Michael and his team have been with me all the way to ensure I was able to deal with challenges we all have from time to time. The program has now formed part of my daily routine and can say without hesitation my situation is very different to what it was in May and my personal situation has certainly improved which is a direct result of the BIS program.

    I feel a big difference with my flexibility, core strength and overall mobility and find that the compression in my spine that always affected me throughout the day now only really causes my discomfort and difficulty in the evening and this is slowly improving and can only be down to the BIS program.

    The overall support and advice from Michael and Lara is nothing short of exceptional with virtual consultations providing the boost sometimes you need when having problems and set backs. Nothing is too much trouble. The program is easy to follow and the videos are well explained with step by step guidance.

    My main goal was to avoid surgery which I thought was inevitable and improve my mobility both of these objectives are now really achievable following the BIS program. I have no hesitation with recommending the BIS program for everyone struggling with back, neck problems or just want to improve fitness and flexibility in general.

    Thank you Michael, Lara and BIS members for all the help and support!

    I found back in shape at a time when I was suffering with recurring bouts of back pain, was feeling really down and didnt really know where to turn. I started watching the live streams on you tube & quickly learned the treatments and exercises I was doing weren’t helping. Since becoming a premium member, having a couple of consultations with Michael and working my way through the back in shape rehab programme, I’ve become so much stronger, far more back aware and am making sustained progress with my back recovery. The expertise and support of the back in shape programme is brilliant in providing expert guidance and a safe rehab programme. Its given me back my mobility and renewed confidence and optimism for the future.

    I’ve struggled with episodes of lower back pain for the past 3 years since pregnancy. I found the program incredibly insightful and realised I’d been doing all the wrong things on each of my flair ups. I feel like I’m much more prepared to deal with one now but even more prepared to condition my core to prevent it happening again. I’ve already recommended the program in conversation with friends and colleagues.

    After many years of frequent episodes of debilitating back and neck problems, I was sent a link to Back in Shape by a friend. From that day on, my life has changed for the better.
    I could never speak more highly of Back in Shape and the amazing dedication, knowledge, commitment and expertise of Michael and Lara. They help every member achieve so much, through amazing sets of very safe back strengthening exercises, that actually work like magic.
    For years I was told by doctors, my problem was age related and it should be expected, even though no examination of scan had ever been done. Back in Shape has proved that I can achieve so much, despite my age.
    If I do have a problem I know that Michael and Lara are there to guide me to the best way forward. Back in Shape is a must for anyone with back / neck problems.

    I have suffered with back/neck and shoulder problems for 10 years, visiting many physios for treatment. When lockdown came and I could no longer have face to face treatment I turned to the internet for self management and came across Back in Shape on YouTube. Michael is very explanatory in his videos, and I came to understand my back more, but also why the exercises I had previously been given by other physios may actually have been causing more harm than good. The Back in Shape membership gives access to more helpful videos, exercises and a facebook page for advice. It’s helpful to read comments by other members because they can be relevant to me too. It’s also good to have videos of the exercises that I can regularly refer to. One of my downfalls with physios was allowing bad habits to creep in as I had nowhere to remind myself of what to do. I totally recommend Michael and Lara for all their work on the Back in Shape program and their in depth knowledge.

    I joined Back in Shape 2 months after seeing videos on YouTube. You can start on a free membership and do all the phase 1 content, and then move onto a premium membership which gives access to phase 2 and beyond, plus online content, Facebook page, and live streams.
    It has been really good to have the support of Michael and Lara while progressing through the phases who are always quick to respond to any cry of help. The FaceBook page is also good for members to share topics and seek advise.
    Going through the phases does require some commitment and my advise would be to take it easy at first and get the techniques correct.
    I would deffinetly recommend Back in Shape for anyone suffering from back problems.

    I came across the Back in Shape programme whilst looking for pilates videos. I have suffered from Spondylolisthesis for over 30 years so decided to try the 7 day trial period. I was impressed with the videos right from the start, so I signed up for the premium membership and had a virtual consultation with Michael, I am currently working through phase two.
    I have been extremely impressed with the service so far, emails are answered straight away and nothing seems to much trouble. I have learnt more about my condition in the short time I have been a member than I ever have from the many Dr’s I have seen. I have also learnt that I have been doing a lot of things wrong. The videos are easy to follow and explain things really well.
    Whilst it’s very early days and obviously 30 years of back trauma is not going to be fixed overnight, I am extremely encouraged with how things are progressing and really glad I signed up. My main objective is to avoid surgery, which I was beginning to think was inevitable. However, at last, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you.

    Michael & Lara form a highly professional team and give every one the utmost care and attention to ensure membership with the online clinic is the best in providing knowledge, advice ant total support in looking after your back!
    Following years of back and neck pain it was a relieve to at last get some help and support from the Back in Shape Program. As a member you also able to join a dedicated Facebook group where members are able to ask questions and share advice and tips.
    Despite all the problems this year has presented, Michael and Lara have kept the program alive through an online clinic thereby continuing to provide virtual consultations, regular back related livestream videos and the reassurance that there is always someone there when you need help! The clinic was awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise this year … so well deserved, could not have gone to a more deserving service, THANK YOU for all your support!

    I am please with the new website, it is easy to log in and navigate to all the protocols you put in. The library is amazing . I could easily click to review those workouts to remind myself how to do them properly and view the past live streams that I missed.

    I happy to tell my progress the Back in Shape I started doing the PhaseI September 17,2020 that was first time I was saw you on YouTube. I went to your clinic twice met you amazing staff. I have been doing this routine now for almost two months now Early morning Phase 1 midday Phase 3 alternate part 1&2 5×15 & evening Phase 1 with towel and Ice after each workout every single day . I never missed a day.

    I could say my posture have improved a great deal although my right hip still a bit higher compare to left side. I feel stronger and energised every time I do workout and I can stand longer time cooking without pain on my lower back.

    I am looking forward what is beyond phase 3. Thank you for all the things you and Lara do to help us back into shape.

    I first attended the Mayfair Clinic in May 2019 and was a regular until I stopped working in London in July 2019. I was very impressed with the professionalism and care provided by Michael and his team. I have been part of the Premium Membership since May 2020. The on line clinic developed by the team has been exceptional and provides a wide range of support. The team are very proactive and always respond to any questions in a timely way. They are also responsive to ideas and suggestions from members which will ensure that the on line clinic continues to develop and evolve. I have no hesitation in recommending the Back in Shape Programe to anyone with acute or more long standing back issues.

    I really recommend signing up to the BIS programme, the advice and help and support from the group is truly fantastic. Michaels experience as an osteopath and the programme of rehab is quite easy to fit into ones life and very enjoyable, I have gained core strength and many fellow back sufferers. I have never been fitter since joining this group.

    Hi, I started Phase 1 of your Back in Shape program because I was very impressed with your professional knowledge and attitude towards dealing with back issues.
    I spent a couple of weeks working through the Phase 1 exercices, stretches and following your reasoning of why I was doing what I was doing in terms of looking after the health of my spine and core.
    I wanted to continue with the further phases as well as gain access to the Facebook Premium Members’ forum and subsequent videos and live sessions on ‘back care’ presented by Michael and his team.
    There are 3 ways to pay the subscription including one option to pay monthly. I chose this one and have absolutely no regrets whatsoever as I am now getting almost as much out of my Back in Shape workouts as I was when using a gym 3/4 times a week before clampdown ..
    The level of mental and physical progression, support from the BIS team and the Premium Members’ themselves is everything I had hoped for .. and more .. thanks.
    Callie – ( 66 year old ex-rock drummer with a few back issues but nothing major ..)
