Billie continues to be a keen athlete and now focuses much of her time on riding her road bike up and down hill. She understands the importance of a good bike position and fit when such a long time can be spent in the saddle. There are sport specific injuries for all sports and when cycling for hours these can become debilitating. Billie often gets cyclists to bring their bike into the clinic to check there position.
Billie also runs and as a woman in her 50's, she is aware of the importance of continuing with exercise as we get older and how frustrating it can be to injury yourself. Our aim at the clinic is to get you back to doing what you want to do.
Billie is now working to manage and develop the rapidly expanding Centre whilst maintaining the highest professional standards. She hand- picks only the best clinicians to work with her.
