"Henry Barratt was one of the most astounding dedicated young athletes I met in my time as a senior pro at Harlequins Rugby Club. Incredible personal strength and speed but most importantly a total dedication to better himself at every available opportunity be it academically or on a sports field. I have absolutely no doubt he will be a major success in his new chosen field. Attention to detail, innovation, trust, confidence, key words in my England days, Henry will bring to the gym and his clients. He is a wonderful character and one I would have no hesitation in working with in the future."
Dr Will Greenwood MBE - British & Irish Lions, England, Harlequins
"During his time with Harlequins, Henry demonstrated a work ethic that was second to none. Henry was extremely organised in his personal life and was one of the few players who were able to meet the demands of and complete a University Degree while being in full time professional rugby. This high level of personal organisation combined with his self motivation and professionalism, I am sure, will serve him well in his new business venture."
Collin Osborne - Harlequins 1st Team Coach
"I have no hesitation in recommending Henry Barratt. I regularly send him some of my most challenging clients who are require a progressive programme of rehabilitation exercise, and his mature considered approach has invariably brought about impressive results. His own background in high level sport, and his level of post-graduate study, gives him a considerable edge over less experienced trainers, and his long-term approach allows even those clients with no experience of physical training to make considerable gains."
"During my time working with Henry he illustrated a very professional and dedicated approach to fitness and nutrition and this was represented in his excellent fitness levels. Performance fitness relies heavily on your attitude to training and this was certainly one of Henry's strengths."
Paul Pook - Ireland & Harlequins Strength and Conditioning Coach
"I worked with Henry at Harlequins FC and found him to be an extremely focused individual who strives for perfection in all that he does. His professionalism, dedication and sheer determination makes him an exceptional young man. He was always ahead of his peers in strength and fitness levels and had the perfect build for a player in his position. I can personally recommend Henry as a person who will inspire and motivate people to improve their health and well being."
Dave Bell - Harlequins Strength & Conditioning Coach
Posture analysis and strength coaching
"Working with Henry has transformed my fitness. He has an innate ability to understand my needs and deliver exactly the right approach and level of challenge. I look forward to every session (and that is from someone who hadn't been to a gym in 15 years before starting work). I can't recommend him highly enough"
Phil Bolton - Executive Coach
Ironman Triathlon Coaching
"Henry is an outstanding personal trainer, certainly the most professional, thoughtful and innovative I’ve ever worked with. His ability to quickly establish trust and confidence allowed us to make real progress right from the start and he has a style and approach to training that is genuinely inspiring. Henry helped me prepare for the France Ironman this year. I had an ankle injury and began working with him 6 weeks out from race day. At this point I couldn’t run so my initial goal was rehabilitation to take part, but after working with Henry this quickly changed to focus on reducing my personal best time of 13 hours 24 minutes to under 13 hours. Not only did I finish, I achieved a new personal best on a difficult course in challenging conditions. It’s fair to say without Henry’s help this would have been almost impossible. The sessions are well prepared, very focused, hard work but fun, so enjoyable. The results of the sessions were clear to see and I look forward to continuing to work with Henry to stretch myself and reach a new personal best Ironman time. I have no hesitation in recommending him. "

Shoulder Rehabilitation to Prevent Surgery
"I came off my mountain bike and severely dislocated my shoulder. The surgeons all said, “we need to operate, otherwise it will constantly dislocate”. I spoke to Henry who simply said, “surgery is the last resort, give me three months”. I did, and that was well over a year ago, no surgery needed!
I now have absolute control of my shoulder, understand the importance of engaging my shoulder and scapular to ensure stability, I am stronger than I was, complete movements I never could, am more flexible and complete exercises in the gym I never would have for fear of dislocation. I would recommend his knowledge and expertise to anyone."
Alex Horner, Business Director
Remedial Personal Training
"I started training with Henry about a year ago. At that time I consider myself to have been dangerously unfit. I weighed about 18 stone and literally couldn’t run for more than 3 minutes. Over the course of 6 months Henry built not only my fitness but also my confidence. I can now run for 35 minutes continuously and do so on a regular basis. My weight, and consequently my health, has improved greatly. I now find running an enjoyable activity and do so regularly. I find Henry to be unusual in his methodology. He uses an effective combination of encouragement and persuasion which in turn makes you want to work harder to achieve your goals. Surmountable targets and goals are another tool Henry uses to build with. "

Corporate Wellness Training
"Henry came highly recommended to me by a couple of people. After working with him for a few months, I realised what a talent he was and arranged for him to run a weekly training session for employees in my company. I have been surprised by the diversity of the people who turn up to these sessions, from those who have been scared of exercising to the super fit. The result has exceed my expectations as people rave about the sessions and the difference it makes to them. Henry is highly talented. He is passionate about his profession and extremely knowledgeable. If you are considering personal training, no matter on your level of fitness or objectives, I would highly recommend Henry."

Skiing Rehabilitation after injury
" I injured my knee ligaments skiing in April 2009 and I was not able to walk. I saw Henry twice a week and thanks to the training, I strengthened my knee and leg again and I was able to ski the following year. I can now run and play tennis again.I would have no hesitation in recommending Henry to anybody who is recovering from a sports injury or who just wants to improve their general fitness. "
Isabelle Atkinson - Skiing injury rehabilitation
"Henry’s knowledge is incredible and I trust him completely. I suspect there is not a lot he doesn't know, and that what he doesn't know - I very much doubt you need to know. The sessions are planned meticulously against specific objectives and he pushes me to my absolute limit - which is exactly what I want."
Pregnancy Fitness and Rehabilitation
"During my pregnancy I suffered with chronic SPD (pelvic pain) resulting in crutches for my last 8 weeks. I couldn't have regained my fitness without Henry; his approach to (and understanding of) postnatal training is fantastic. Henry's endless motivation and support kept me going through the tough times and it is for that I am extremely grateful. "
Claire O’Flinn - Manches – Solicitor
"Henry is an excellent, reliable and dedicated trainer. Whether you have a specific goal (mine was finishing the London marathon in under 4 hours) or just want to improve your general fitness, I definitely recommend you ask Henry to help you get there. Thanks Henry!"
