Athlete Service developed from Rob’s bike obsession and pursuit of excellence in sport. He starting fixing, building and servicing bikes for friends in his lounge nearly ten years ago. When the bikes started taking over his house, the business moved to Highlands Farm focussing on bike fitting and servicing. The business grew from offering great service and advice to a growing regular customer base before moving to a Unit at Henley Enterprise Park. An endless pool was added into the offering while building a team of coaches and therapists focussing on swim, bike, run coaching as well as Chiropractic, Physiotherapy and sports massage as well as adding Pilates and yoga into the mix.
In 2015, the team moved to the iconic Oast House in the centre of town. Here, combined with their sister company Henley Practice, they have a complete ‘under one roof’ model that covers all aspect of health, sport and fitness.
