I've known Anouska for around 10 years initially as a rider on the Pensar Race team where my mates Hads and Terry were racing and also through the early incarnations of Twittersphere under the Fittoride handle (correct use of handle?). There is still an unanswered direct twitter message from Anouska to the Cobra9 twitter feed from 2011 that I promise I'll get around to responding to at some point.
Early on, I knew Anouska was a good physio. Good physiotherapists have a way of finding themselves in ever increasingly important and interesting roles. Anouska always seemed to be working with a National team of some description. When Anouska moved to the UK a few years ago, we touched on the idea of some mutual work for the UK team whereby Anouska's physiotherapy service could work in conjunction with my Podiatry training. We have both worked amongst cyclists for a huge period of time and simply there are still not a whole lot of practitioners in our field where this is the case. Given how highly I regard Anouska's skillset, the notion that she would like to work with me on occasion is a huge compliment, or at least I'm taking it as such. I'll press Anouska on this point when we have coffee next.
Now that Anouska has returned to Australia, we finally have the opportunity to work together. I for one, am pretty excited by the prospect. When we were looking for a Physio to complete our team of health practitioners at The Pedaler, getting a professional of Anouska's quality was the highest priority, and her return from overseas is extremely serendipitous.
Initially Anouska will be treating once a week from our rooms starting on the 19th of February. You can book online or call us to schedule. Where required, Anouska and myself may consult together to ensure we have the best possible treatment outcomes going forward for previous and future clients.
Anouska is the physiotherapist of choice to ensure you can ride pain free and with improved function. Her twitter handle says it all - Fittoride. I can't put it more eloquently then that.
