Allthough Podfit was founded in 2014, it’s foundations were layed many years before that. Founder, Neil Owens, has been involved in high level sport and edcuation his entire working life and personal circumstances lead him down a path which ensures the best possible care for Podfit clients.
As a former York City junior with a serious ankle injury halting his career, Neil studied Sport And Exercise Science at University and became Director of a Californian Youth Soccer league In 1995. Later, he spent 12 Years teaching secondary Physical education in Yorkshire, combining his passion for sport and helping others acquire knowledge of sport and exercise.
During that time, Neil discovered (painfully) a mild, but significant spinal scoliosis due to a previous sporting injury. Several slipped discs and a spinal chord compression led to spinal surgery and a surgeon explaining to Neil, that he needed to develop a strong core, or suffer with life long back pain.
