WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

The word of mouth

It doesn’t really matter what we say about it, the test of our service comes from the mouth of our clients.


I’ve always had issues with my left shoulder and remember having pain and discomfort probably from as early as high school. It became a real hindrance while exercising when I realised I was unable to do certain things my body was designed to do. I was referred to Tarryn by Donald for an assessment and rehabilitation. It turns out that Tarryn has a great interest and knowledge about the shoulder and got to work on me straight away.

Because my shoulder has been an issue for so long, she had her work cut out for her, but she took it in her stride. She was incredible and I am happy to report that the improvement has been tremendous. I can do shoulder work without even noticing any discomfort and I’m truly thankful that I found her. I highly recommend her!

Around 2004 I was in terrible pain with my back. I had prolapsed discs in L5 and L5 and had been advised to have an op. A friend of mine introduced me to Donald whom, apart from a few years in the UK, has looked after me ever since. I never had the op and I have played Polo and Golf ever since. Trust me he is the best.

I’m not a gym person, but I decided to go to Plett Sports Clinic and see if they could help with my general fitness and specifically my hip problems. I met Donald and embarked on a course that has lasted a couple of years. I remember saying to Donald I don’t know much about muscles and the anatomy, his reply was “that was his job and not to worry’. Donald is a true professional and knows his job inside out. Being an SA Olympian, his whole life seems to be about fitness and more particularly, treating sports and general troubles that the body gets along the way.
