The RISE nest has almost landed!


We are very excited to announce that Rise Physiotherapy and Pilates are going to be a permanent fixture within Redpoint Bristol Climbing Centre.

We are in the final stages of renovating and kitting out a space that will offer Bristol’s only dedicated climbing physiotherapy and rehabilitation facility, with equipment and methods for structured strength and performance testing, reformer pilates apparatus and cutting edge treatment modalities.

RISE is headed up by Simon Carley-Smith, an experienced musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist, sports massage practitioner and acupuncturist. Over the last 4 years his expert knowledge and clear passion for all things climbing have built a following of dedicated, serious climbers throughout Bristol that look to him for their rehabilitation and general maintenance.  He offers assessment, treatment and screening, as well as providing advice on training programmes and long-term injury prevention to individuals and groups.

His wife Stephanie is a Stott certified Pilates instructor who brings her wealth of experience working in studios across Bristol and her background in high-level sport to open Bedminster’s first Reformer Pilates Studio.  She’ll be offering 1:1 and 2:1 mini classes, with a focus on core strength, flexibility, body control and mindful movement.  Pilates is perfect cross-training for climbers, dancers and skill-based athletes, as well as for those looking to improve posture, and prevent back and neck pain.  Stephanie will also be rolling out group classes for pre-natal and post-natal pilates for pregnant ladies and new-mums in the coming weeks.
