BUCS Biathlon Champion 2020
Issy Morris is a 22 years old elite triathlete training in the National Triathlon Performance Centre Wales, based in Cardiff.
Issy's Product is...
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.
Issy went to Cardiff Metropolitan University where she studied Sports Studies and is now waiting to begin her masters in Sport and Exercise Nutrition.
Her sporting career to date has shown her how vital fuelling is to her overall performance but most importantly her health. Edge has been a vital part of this journey for Issy, as it has flagged when her hormone levels were not where they should be, even before any physical signs appeared.
Issy started using Edge when she found out she had RED-S. She used the Female Fitness test every couple of months to see whether her hormone levels were increasing to the correct levels for her age. This was invaluable as with a condition like RED-S the signs are often hidden or masked.
Now that Issy’s hormone levels are where they should be, she is using MyFORM® female hormone mapping product which allows her to track the changes in her hormone levels throughout her menstrual cycle. By doing this, Issy is able to work with her doctor to assess how much she can increase her training.
What is your pre-competition meal?
If it’s pre-race morning it’ll always be porridge with banana and honey. Usually in the form of a large porridge pot as it can be easily packed and eaten wherever you are in the world! If it’s the evening before, my go-to is always pasta!
Favourite music for motivation?
I’m useless with names of songs so it’ll tend to be a random motivational playlist already created on my phone. But you can’t not feel motivated after a bit of Eminem.
What is your go-to treat?
This varies a lot but you can’t beat a good sticky toffee pudding with ice cream.
What Superhero would you be?
Not really the superhero type but I guess being spiderman would be pretty cool.

The female triathlete test allows me to regularly (every 4 months) ensure all the key biomarkers and hormones that reflect my state of health are where they should be. I have always found it hard to know when to push through on those tough, tired days and when to take a step back and allow myself some extra recovery time. Edge removes the guess work and gives me a significant advantage because I can optimise my training and minimise my risk of injuries and illnesses.

Without good health, consistent and sustainable high performance isn’t possible. With the support of Edge it is great peace of mind knowing that my biomarkers are in check and really gives me confidence to begin to push on with my training. It also gives me areas to focus on and improve if any areas are in need of a little boost! I have started using the Triathlon test, which provides me with both a comprehensive and detailed analysis of my biomarkers.

As a professional athlete it’s very important to me to keep regular tabs on my blood markers. Sometimes you need to find out as quickly as possible the reason why you might be under performing in training and racing, and what you can do to solve it. Edge offer a very quick and convenient service and translates the results into numbers we can all understand all for an affordable price.
