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.”

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.”

Excellent advice

“I met Derek when I required rehab for a broken ankle. I have always found Derek to be very thorough & professional. He provides excellent advice and gives specific exercises to assist in recovery. Over the years when I needed assistance, I always found Derek to be very accommodating and would highly recommend him.”
