I am always looking for ways I can better serve you – whether you listen to the podcast, visit the blog or prefer social media.

Maybe you are considering personal training for back pain.

I want your feedback on the Back Pain Liberation services that interest you.

To put everything into context I’ll also ask some stuff about you and your back issues.

Quick chat or long conversation – it’s your choice.


BPL Podcast/Blog/Social Media
  • What do you like?
  • What could be improved?
  • What topics would you want covered in the future?
  • Maybe there are particular people you think would make good guests?
  • Do you prefer episodes with a guest or when it’s just me?
  • Would you be interested in standalone blog posts, not related to the podcast?
  • Do you like seeing related content from outside sources on Back Pain Liberation social media channels
You and Your Back
  • How long have you had back problems?
  • Have you sought medical advice?
  • How is it going for you right now?
  • What helps and what doesn’t?
  • Is there something you are considering trying?
Personal Trainer for Back Pain
  • Do you exercise to improve your back condition?
  • Does it help?
  • Would you be interested in learning a new way to exercise for back pain?
  • Do you think personal training is something that could help you?
  • What would prevent you from getting guidance from a personal trainer?
The Call

I appreciate you taking time out of your day to talk to me.

If it’s just a 10 minute chat that’s fine. If you want to take your time and go into more detail that’s great!

Just book a time to call me in the calendar on this page.

I will try to make contact with you ahead of time, using the email address you give to find you on Skype.

This can be a bit hit and miss. If you don’t get a contact request from me, then please look me up. My Skype account is linked to my personal email address, barkeriain@

I would very much like to record the call for my records, and maybe for use in an episode of the BPL podcast. I’ll ask you for your permission first.

For best audio quality (and to avoid ‘bad hair day’ anxiety) I stick to audio-only Skype calling.

Technical Considerations

A regular laptop/desktop and broadband internet setup should be fine.

(Recommended download/upload speed for Skype audio calls is 100kbps. You can check the speeds you are getting at if you get a result in Mbps then you are good to go.)

Otherwise, there are a couple of easy wins for a stable call connection and good sound quality:

  • One of the things that can degrade a Skype call is weak Wi-Fi that cuts in and out. To ensure a solid connection it never hurts to plug an ethernet cable from your router into your computer.
  • Built-in microphones and speakers are not ideal. If you don’t have mic/headphone equipment already, a basic headset is quite affordable. One like this would do the job (I’m not an affiliate, I just have one of these!)
