  • Mark Taylor

    Mark Taylor

    Lead Physiotherapist

    Once his childhood dreams of being a professional footballer were ended by injuries Mark moved through a series of ill-suited jobs before finally settling down to embark on his physiotherapy career.

    Mark Running

    Having graduated with a first class BSc (hons) Physiotherapy from the University of Huddersfield he worked in the NHS for 12 years at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals, before leaving to develop his skills in the private sector. Alongside his clinical Mark has also worked extensively as physiotherapist with teams in many different sports.

    This mix of experience has allowed Mark to develop the ideas and ethos behind Bespoked, where physiotherapy is delivered "as it should be".

    Away from work Mark has himself overcome major knee surgery and now competes in a range of events aimed at giving him the best chance of success in triathlons of varying distances.

    Family life is never dull with wife Kate and children Aggie and Magnus also leading very active lives and competing in a plethora of events.

    Other lifelong passions in no particular order are walking, cooking, music and Blackburn Rovers.

  • Dave Perry

    David Perry

    Strength and Conditioning Consultant

    Having graduated with a Ba (hons) in Sports Coaching from University of Central Lancashire in 2010 David was then asked to become a Junior Coach at the prestigious South African Western Province Rugby Institute for a year.

    He further developed his skills working with sportspeople whilst working as Lead Strength and Conditioning Coach at Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Football Club for four successful seasons. This role completed a circle for David as he had also previously played for the club.

    Throughout the last six years David has worked for Pro-fit as a Personal Trainer which has enhanced his skills when working with people and helping them towards their goals.

    On a daily basis David works with people from the sedentary to semi-professional athletes, and from ages 9 to 74.

    David prides himself on developing challenging yet achievable strengthening programmes for people targeted at short and long term goals and says that “making sure my clients and athletes are in the best possible condition before, during and after an event is my primary aim and I also hope it is enjoyable for the person doing it!”

    When not in the gym David can be heard to frequently eulogise about the sporting prowess of anyone from his native Northern Ireland, is determined to also complete his first marathon and unfortunately also has a passion for Manchester United.

    We are lucky to be able to utilise David’s expertise in a range of ways which can help us design and deliver the perfect Bespoked package for you.
