Brian's Product is...
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.

Having regular testing with Edge twice saved my season in 2019 by identifying biochemical issues before they put me out of action completely. I’d highly recommend regular testing for any high performance athlete.
12hr and 100 Mile Record Holder
I find the information about my blood values at different points in the season very valuable; it helps me guide my training and monitor the training load. Equally my nutritionist, coach and gym coach use this information to better enable them to direct my training. It’s a complete team effort and Edge makes this possible. Plus the test is super quick and easy.
British National Track Champion, Individual Pursuit
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.
1st 2020 National Hill Climb Champion
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.
