Amy's Product is...
I've been using Edge throughout my race season and it has been extremely helpful in identifying where there are deficiencies and where we can make potential performance improvements. The ease of the home testing kits just makes things so much better. It means we can keep track of all the key biomarkers every month, with quick results.
From being unable to swim front crawl when she made her triathlon debut in 2012 to becoming the overall age group champion at the Ironman 70.3 South American Championships, Amy’s upwards trajectory is the product of talent, hard work and a responsive approach to training.
Since beginning her triathlon career, she has competed in a range of disciplines including Olympic- and long-distance triathlon, sprint triathlon and Ironman.
Through her blog, she takes her fans along on her journey, talking about the highs, lows, challenges and successes, and explains that her motivation comes from a desire to challenge herself and discover just how much she is capable of.
Edge is helping Amy monitor her progress, address issues before they become a significant performance or health problem, and achieve her potential.
“I’ve been using Edge throughout my 2019 race season and it has been extremely helpful in identifying where there are deficiencies and where we can make potential performance improvements. The ease of the home testing kits just makes things so much better. It means we can keep track of all the key biomarkers every month, with quick results. The ability to compare and track levels over time is also really helpful; we can see if there is a downward or upward trend and implement changes sooner, before something becomes an issue.”

Edge has helped me take out the guesswork on how my body is responding to both training and daily stresses. This objective scientific measure means I know longer worry about how I feel or whether I should or shouldn't do something, as I have the answer from my results.
2013 Duathlon World Championships, Amateur - Gold/1st
I have been diagnosed with a condition called hypothyroidism and to put this simply it basically means my thyroid isn’t working & producing the hormones it should be. I have started medication to counteract this imbalance and with the support of Edge I have access to regular blood tests to ensure I am on the correct dosage of medication.
Commonwealth Games 2018/2022
MyFORM® allows me to track the fluctuations of my hormones and provides explanations for why my periods haven’t become regular straight away. The most frustrating part of this whole process of RED-S has been that I feel physically fine, I don’t have an injury or an illness to show for my near 12 months off training, yet the results from MyFORM® confirm why I still need to continue resting for now.
BUCS Biathlon Champion 2020
In 2019 I overtrained and ended up with an excessive inflammation injury whilst training for an Ironman. I needed to take a long hard look at my preparation. Edge helps me identify when I’m pushing too hard, when I need a rest, or when I can still maintain the training intensity. As a result, I’ve managed a 3rd consecutive PB in my IM races and hit the start line feeling 100% ready – a very rare thing indeed!
