TESTIMONIALS

On becoming World Champion
“We did it together. I feel stronger, fitter and healthier this season, and a huge part of it is thanks to you. I can’t tell you how many matches I’ve come through this week and this season by just being confident in my physical abilities. But most importantly, it takes a clear head to be able to perform at my best and feeling healthy and less prone to injury makes me think nothing but squash really. I am forever GRATEFUL to you and I cannot wait to continue this journey together.”

“Derek, thanks a million. Brilliant to be part of that. Phenomenal workout and that’s a huge win. Should run every week when there isn’t a tournament on.”

A wealth of knowledge & experience
“I count myself extremely fortunate to have met Derek Ryan as he helped me recover from two major back injuries as well as post-op rehab on my knee. He has exhibited a wealth of knowledge and experience and his advice has always been beneficial to me. He has taught me the importance of ongoing S&C and I regularly attend his training sessions.”

Getting Stronger
“Over the course of the last year I've been training with Derek in S&C to further improve my performance on court. With his help I've managed to get stronger but without gaining too much bulk which has definitely aided me in playing against older and more developed players. This training has definitely aided me from picking up any injuries being able to carry on through long, tough tournament weekends.”
