Becky's Product is...
As an endurance athlete I know how easy it is to tip the balance from training and pushing your limits by ‘over-reaching’, to over training and having the potential to be injured. This is where MyFORM® has really been able to help. Tracking my hormones over my entire menstrual cycle has enabled me see the impact my training is having and avoid putting stress on my body resulting in a loss of periods.
Becky started off as a swimmer and got into weight lifting when she was around 16 (training as a personal trainer).
Becky continued swimming throughout university, which then led her on to combine it with other disciplines to become a triathlete.
Becky’s career as a triathlete progressed to an elite level within the UK super series and she represented Lyon within the division 2 French Grand Prix League. This was a huge accolade, with top placings of 10th throughout two summers of racing from 2016-2018.
However, Becky chose not to continue as a triathlete at this level as she was not able to work as a respiratory physiotherapist and compete at her highest ability due to weekend and on-call working.
Since then Becky has focused on cycling and running, placing in the top 120 in the UK for 3000m to 10km running, and placing 9th at national championships for hill climbing in cycling in 2020.
Becky races in the British Women’s Team Cup races which include the top 60 domestic riders in the country.
Becky’s using our MyFORM® hormone mapping test to ensure her training load isn’t impacting her hormones and putting her a risk of RED-S.

I've been looking for a detailed insight into how my body is working internally, so I can act upon any abnormal values. So when I found Edge provides sports-specific biomarkers to analyse my blood, coupled with expert advice tailored to my specific needs, I was very excited to start working with this great company, as it gives me the confidence and reassurance knowing my body is (or isn't) in optimal condition to help with my sports performance.

I have a real belief that it is not about how hard you can train, but how long you can train. Consistent improvements over time instead of short bouts of hard work split up by long periods out. Edge is an important component of maintaining this healthy training balance. I’ve learnt a lot about my body, the way it reacts to certain stressors and how to look after myself with a view to optimising performance.

I started using Edge when I was in a hard block of off-season training preparing for the Commonwealth Games. In the time that I’ve been monitoring my biomarkers, I’ve learnt a lot about my body, the way it reacts to certain stressors and how to look after myself with a view to optimising performance. Having access to historical and current data from the Edge tests I have been much more aware of what issues I might be having and also far better informed before having a discussion with the doctor.

As someone that has had a lifetime within the sport of cycling, I was always keen to look after both physical and mental sides. Now a mature cyclist and having rheumatoid arthritis I have become very aware of how regular blood tests can not only keep tabs on your internal engine but also keep an eye on many factors as the body ages. I have chosen the Endurance test as I feel this is most suited to me and I can monitor my blood levels on a regular basis.
