"I started using Forth Edge to give me a deeper insight into my current health levels and how this translates into both sport and my general wellbeing. The female triathlete test has helped me identify where I have deficiencies and I look forward to continuing with regular testing to be able to track the improvements in these."

Rachel started running in 2012 in a bid to improve her lifestyle. An inactive teenager getting started was incredibly hard, however it wasn’t long before she caught the bug. Once she left university she found triathlon as she was already cycling and running. For the first couple of years she didn’t follow any structured training but in 2018 enlisted the help of a coach to complete her first ironman.

Rachel started training in the summer of 2018 and by autumn came second in her age group at Ironman Wales. The following year she won her age group at Ironman Lanzarote and went on to compete at the Ironman World Championships. In 2019 she came first in age group at the Vitruvian Middle Distance triathlon, qualifying for a GB Age Group slot for 2022 in middle distance. In 2018 she came 3rd overall female at the Southampton Marathon.

Rachel is using our Female Triathlon test to learn more about her hormones, key biomarkers and how this can help monitor her health and training load.
