Charity

Physical Edge likes to help people and contribute to making lives better. We also like overcoming challenges in life. Below are some of the friends we have supported, to raise money for charity and improve the lives of others.

As we have said before, it’s all about a team effort – and that goes for the charity work as well. Why not get involved – it could help your mobility and general fitness levels as well as benefiting some excellent causes? Exercising for others is a great way to overcome fears. You can feel empowered racing for something greater than yourself. Why not take up a Charitable Challenge this year? Click here to read about some of our friends who did just that.

“During my training for the London Marathon, I hurt my knee on a 20 mile run. Rhys slotted me in immediately and began to work on my very stiff legs to make sure I would still be able to run the race I had already trained so hard for. He used a variety of techniques to get my knee to loosen up, and his expertise with sports injuries shone through. But it wasn’t just his treatment that helped me to get to the start line – he took the time to send me a nutritional plan, a build up plan, and he recorded the exercises I needed to do, to make sure I stuck to them. He is a fantastic physio and a lovely person, and thanks to him I made it all the way around, raising over £7,000 for charity and completing the challenge of a lifetime.”
