“I started using the tests as a result of having a few poor performances and I knew it was something more than just a bad day at the office. I use the Female Runner and Female Hormone Mapping tests to track hormone fluctuations and all my key biomarkers. The Forth Edge tests together with the amazing team of Nicky and Renee have been a game changer in getting to the bottom of hormone imbalances I was having due to being in an energy deficit. Luckily we got to the bottom of the problem quickly which helped avoid me getting RED-S and I now do regular testing to make sure I am keeping on top of everything as I want to get the best out of myself. ”

Carla started running at school when she was 15 by running around in circles and through muddy fields. From school she went to university in Cardiff where she studied Sports Science and took up triathlon. Carla went on to win her Age Group at the European Duathlon Championships and competed at three World Championships. In 2013 she entered the Glasgow Half Marathon and loved the simplicity of running so she hung up her wetsuit, put her bike away and just started to run!

Since then Carla has gone on to get a Gold Medal at Comrades (the oldest and largest ultra marathon in the world), represented Great Britain at the 100km World Championships and get a World Record for running the length of Great Britain, where she ran 1,327km in 12 days, 30 minutes and 14 seconds!

Carla has also set up her very own training platform SCY for Runners. She saw a gap in training for all runners and so created Strength Conditioning & Yoga for Runners. An online platform that provides on demand S&C and Yoga videos as well a unique community to share knowledge. 

Carla is using our Female Hormone Mapping test and the Female Running test to learn more about her hormones, key biomarkers and how this can help monitor her health and training load.
