“I spend a lot of time on the road and find that Pilates eases the stiffness from constant planes and trains and cars. Hannah’s knowledge of the body and movement are especially beneficial to me. I’m hooked now” Ryan 2015.
Complete Fitness have been working with a very proactive law company for the last 4 years. Their HR manager who originally contacted us is very forward thinking and understood the benefits of implementing an active movement plan for her employees. The law company have approx 120 employees. All employees have had a “Complete Fitness workstation assessment” Our workstation assessment take 30 minutes. As the assessment is performed by a qualified Complete Fitness Physical Therapist any injuries or pain the employee has whilst sitting at their desk is solved with appropriate exercises. All workstation assessments are individualised to each employees to ensure they are completely happy. The law company also use our facility for Corporate Pilates classes 3 times weekly. As all the classes are in the morning they find their employees are more energised and more proactive while working. They have also noted that less employees are out with back pain or away from their desk attending physio appointments.
I first attended Joe with chronic back pain that began during through both my sporting career and occupation as a mental health nurse. Joe spent more time assessing my injury than anyone has ever done and noticed things others have missed. I immediately felt better after my first session. Joe put together a program for strength training and stretching that helped to strengthen my back leaving me pain free and feeling better than ever. I would highly recommend Joe – I found him knowledgeable, professional and most importantly, extremely effective.
I only started yoga a few months ago and wouldn't miss it now. Tara is a fab teacher, she is so much fun and the studio is very cosy.

Finbar is a Barrister by trade and enjoyed playing tennis to a good level. He came to Head Physical Therapist Dylan Crowe seeking help with his chronic lower back pain. He slipped on ice back in 2010 and landed straight onto his tailbone. He told Dylan that the pain eased after six weeks of rests but every time he went back playing tennis he couldn’t stand up straight for 3 days. As a result he was anxious about attempting any form of exercise. As he has a sedentary job and stopped exercising he had put on 3 stone in 6 years. Dylan performed a multitude of functional tests to assess Finbar’s range of motion. He then did a Gait video analysis of Finbar walking. Dylan examined the relationship between his pelvis, ribcage and head whilst Finbar was walking and noticed a lack of movement in his spine. Dylan related to Finbar that possibly the fall onto his tailbone caused his spine to become rigid and stiff as a form of protective mechanism to prevent further trauma to the tailbone. When Finbar tried to go back playing tennis which rotational movements are needed, he didn’t have the functional ability to rotate his spine. This caused his lower back pain. Dylan recommended a course of active rehabilitation. Various mobility exercises were shown to improve the movement relationship between the spine and the rest of the body. Finbar was recommended to take a course of beginners Pilates classes twice weekly. These classes strengthened Finbar's core and more importantly gave him the confidence to move himself out of pain.
I have been attending Marc's pilates classes for 12 months now. Prior to attending Marc's class I hated pilates, I hated it because I found it boring and not much of a work out. Unfortunately I got injured and my doctor advised me to take up pilates in order to strengthen my core.I begrudgingly went to an instructor in Cork who was recommended by my friend. Without sounding over zealous having completed Marc's first class I was motivated, energised and most importantly exhausted. Marc kept us for an 1hr and 15 mins giving each person individual time and correcting their technique. Marc's energy and enthusiasm is infectious and he helped me over come the mental and physical battle of being injured. I am currently training for a marathon and I believe that Marc's classes and his own advice will help me achieve my goals. I have become a much more efficient and stronger runner since joining Marc's classes. Not only is he a fantastic instructor but he is a wonderful guy. He is on my speed dial after my running races so I can inform him on my improvements since joining his classes.
I began training with Marc about 6 years ago. I have suffered from back pain for many years which hindered my ability to maintain any level of fitness. Marc devised a training program for me which mixed pilates, aerobic, weights and core training. As a result, my back got a lot stronger and fitness levels improved. I will even admit that I enjoyed the sessions, in particular hurling abuse at regular intervals to Marc, who is great at motivating you to push yourself that bit further to get results.
I have recently started going to Marc for personal training having started going to his pilates classes 4 years ago. TRX and Kettle Ball training is really tough and gives you a really good work out, unlike gyms where you can feel like you are not really getting anywhere. I have never been a gym person, and this really has worked out so well for me. Marc has showed me completely new ways of training that’s actually enjoyable and gets great results in less amount of time which is really motivating. Marc is also very up to date on what’s happening and will give you healthy eating advice and training tips. I would recommend Marc to anyone as a personal trainer to give them the encouragement and ability to reach their goal.
Marc is really encouraging. Nothing is impossible and even when I was badly injured; he found ways for me to exercise and keep fit, and to get stronger. He is incredibly flexible in terms of timing and allows you to fit classes in which makes it impossible to miss out/lose out!! Mostly I like the results. Just do it.
“Marc is an amazing trainer who has always shown innovation”
“Getting Marc as a Personal trainer has changed my life significantly. Over the past 3 years in training with him I went from a person that was unhappy, unfit and in constant pain due to a back injury, to a person that is fit, completely pain free and enjoying life! Marc works with passion and dedication, has great knowledge about anything related to food, diet and nutrition. He is an expert in injury prevention and he is constantly researching and developing methods of training to have his clients achieve their goals. Also Marc is very patient, trustworthy and pleasant person to work with. I therefore fully recommend Marc as a Personal Trainer.”
“Dylan is a very skilled professional who treats his clients with respect and a high level of integrity. He always tries to find the cause of the injury and then advises his clients on what they can change in their behaviour, to prevent rather than to cure.”
“<em>Dylan</em> is a top class athletic therapist, I am very happy to recommend him and have done so many times with confidence”
“<em>Dylan</em> is a highly skilled and very talented professional. He is passionate about his field of expertise and is continuously developing his technical skills. <em>Dylan</em> is blessed with excellent diagnostic skills, has an acute eye for detail and is result orientated. He is extremely focused, communicates well, and knows how to motivate. He has an honest and frank manner and is of unquestionable integrity. In a nutshell, Mr Crowe knows what he is talking about. Of all the therapists that I have visited over the years <em>Dylan</em> and his team top the list. I would be only too delighted to recommend him to anyone looking for a solution to their neuromuscular disorders or chronic pain syndrome.”
“I went to <em>Dylan</em> over 4 years ago with a recurring calf injury from jogging. Effectively if I jogged more than once a week I would incur a calf injury. I had tried a number of Physical Therapists but they never seemed to get to the core of the problem, which proved frustrating. <em>Dylan</em> analysed and diagnosed my injury and established that it was more deep rooted than I was previously led to believe. His “hands on approach” to treating the injury ensured that I was back jogging after 3 treatments. I am now able to jog 3 times weekly and participate in fun run with minimal injury. <em>Dylan</em> is one of the best Sports Therapists I have come across in terms of diagnosing and treating sports injuries. His approach and understanding ensured that I was always back to full health after a couple of treatments. Definitely worth a visit for any sports injury.”
“<em>Dylan</em> is a superb therapist. His in-depth knowledge and personable manner make him a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend <em>Dylan</em> and Complete Fitness to anyone.”
<em>Dylan</em> is a fantastic Therapist. He has a keen interest in developing his professional skills and up-skilling his techniques. He is involved in ongoing training in various manipulation therapies and combines these various therapies to provide superior individual treatment programmes for each of his clients, including my partner & I. I am extremely pleased with the results <em>Dylan</em> has achieved for me and I have referred several friends and colleagues to <em>Dylan</em> for treatment.
I have been a client of <em>Dylan</em> for over three years and I have found him to be an excellent therapist. He has a vocational attitude to what he does and is constantly seeking to innovate and improve. He work has produced amazing results for me and everyone that I have recommended him to have had similar positive experiences. He has treated a range of injuries for me and was particularly successful in prehab and rehab on a knee surgery I had in 2008. He has done other notable work on difficult injuries such as shoulder injuries.
“I cannot recommend Dylan as a physiotherapist enough. Apart from ALWAYS fixing the problem – he is also ruthlessly honest. He does not tell you that you need a course of treatments if you do not. You can always be sure that your money is well spent. He goes beyond the call of duty as well – giving exercise demonstrations for the ongoing self-management of your condition if it recurs. He appears to be constantly updating his knowledge and talks his clients through the process as he repairs whatever injury they have sustained. I have attended other Physical Therapists in the past – and none compare to <em>Dylan</em> for level of service, professionalism, knowledge and honesty.
