WHO WE WORK WITH
I was fortunate enough to be led through a major knee reconstruction (ACL/MCL/ medial and lateral meniscus repair) by Andy Elkins. At the age of 21 he completely tailored my S&C rehabilitation to my age and needs. As a netball athlete, he understood the demands of my sport which helped for a tailored return to play programme than got me back competing at national level competition 9 months from operation date.
I have absolute full confidence in my knee because of the attention to detail paid during my rehabilitation, which had clear performance markers and testing before increasing at each stage.
I am forever grateful to Andy for his expertise and patience throughout that time and could not recommend Viktus enough.

We worked closely with Viktus to identify the best way to prepare our competitors for the Invictus Games The Hague 2020. Due to two postponements and the global pandemic, we were unable to deliver face to face training and needed to best prepare them for re-starting sport specific training. They were professional, a pleasure to work with and compassionate and understanding to the situation everyone was going through.
Their wealth of experience and knowledge was instrumental to the success of the programmes they created for our competitors and the positive impact they had.

Working with Viktus has been nothing short of brilliant. The tailor-made programmes have supported me in reaching my various performance goals over the years, giving me a solid foundation in strength and physical literacy. As someone who has a physical, outdoor job, Viktus’ programmes have been key to preventing injury and building a more robust frame!
They also keep things interesting and fresh in the programming, so I look forward to what the next block brings!VIKTUS HAVE BEEN KEY TO BUILDING ME A MORE ROBUST FRAME
I feel very privileged to have worked with Andy from an early stage in my High-Performance sports journey. I was introduced to some fundamental principles that I hold on to and lean on as I’ve progressed in my sporting career.
The emphasis was always on quality of movement and accountability in whatever training I was doing.
I really enjoyed the introduction to body control and gymnastics-based skills embedded within a lifting programme. I feel like by doing this training I was becoming not only stronger, but more skilful in my movements too. I could not recommend these guys any more! Whatever your goals are and whatever stage of your journey you are at, I know you’ll be supported and grow as a person and a thinking athlete.
