Since i have been seeing Craig for regular massage, i have had some fantastic results! I am 2nd in the country in the Best All Rounder tables for Ladies Time Trialling and recently, i won the National Gold Medal for the 24 Hour TT  and myself along with John Cornfield and Dave Pemberton (who i introduced to Craig for massage too) also won the Team National Gold medals in the 24 hour Championship. I have won the team Gold in the National 100 mile TT along with my 2 girl Team Mates. I hold a couple of World Records Lands End to John O’Groats and the 1000 mile record and have seen a few Masseurs in my time and i would say that Craig is at the top! Because he is into sports himself he understands and gives Very Good advice and Stretches too. In almost every race i am 1st lady and Craig always has a very important part in this.. keeping my muscles supple and the lactic acid away.

I first went to Optimal Performance just over a year ago on recommendation from a friend as I had a nagging leg injury.  Craig made a swift and comprehensive diagnosis and soon resolved the issue; I was also given a plan of corrective action using strengthening and stretching techniques.  I now attend the clinic on a regular basis for sports massage which has proven to be very beneficial and has significantly enhanced my personal training regime.  Although I was relatively fit I had not run for several years (due to injuries) but I started running last September and have been going from strength to strength ever since thanks to Craig. I can fully recommend Craig as a practitioner whatever your need.

My regular sports massages have helped to alleviate the annoying injuries which previously had impacted on my training programme, thanks again Craig.

I have been using Craig for my Sports Massages and any small injuries for a few years now. During that time he has always been able to assist in curing the ailments and after the old Massage on the legs before and after a race he works wonders. He always listens to your injury worries and guides you through recovery and I have always found him to be professional and always with a smile. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends.

I’m a man of little words, but basically Craig Owen at Optimal Performance topman, I had hamstring problems, Craig assessed, treated and helped them to where they are now, always punctual, always there for advice!

I’ve used Craig from Optimal Performance on numerous occasions for different issues I’ve had as a result of physical training. These include lower back, knees, hamstrings and quadriceps and he has always given me the correct diagnosis along with excellent immediate treatment and aftercare when required. I have also used Craig for sports massages which are very good value for money. I would highly recommend Optimal Performance as Craig has passed on some  great advice which now allows me to warm up and cool down before and after training correctly to prevent the injuries and niggles I got in the past.
