We thought it may be nice to re-introduce some of the familiar faces here at Fay Pedler clinic and welcome the new ones to you also!
Today we catch up with the newest recruit and all-round nice guy Thomas.
What is your background?
I was born in Tavistock Devon and was always keen on sport and athletics from a young age. I developed a natural ability for running and swimming. This led me to compete nationally in the field of Modern Pentathlon, regional 800m and 1500m running and also played ice hockey for the Bristol bulldogs. Competing in sport from a young age has led my passion for learning new activities, coaching and helping other develop their potential.
After leaving College, I spend 7 years traveling and working abroad and finally returned to the Southwest where I graduated from Plymouth University in 2011.
What areas have you previously worked in?
I have predominately working in the NHS for both Torbay and University Plymouth NHS trusts. I have completed both my junior and senior rotations over the past 10 years. I have also worked from local Rugby teams as Sports Physiotherapist. I have an interest in the fields Strength and Conditioning, and Pain Management.
What is your role at Fay Pedler clinic?
What are you most proud of?
I have completed many challenges over the past 25 years and always look forward to the next one. I have also put all my efforts in each one with a smile on my face. I have most recently completed my first Half Iron Man triathlon distance at the age of 39, but am looking to complete a full Iron in the very near future.
What’s the best thing about being part of the Fay Pedler team?
Working alongside an excellent team of professional clinicians and having the freedom and time to help people get fitter and stronger.
If you weren’t a member of the Fay Pedler Team what would you be?
Anything that involves being outside. The life of a beach lifeguard looks pretty good.
If you could share a bottle of something with any 3 people in the world, who would they be?
Jessica Ennis-Hill, David Attenborough and Huey Morgan.
What is your favourite song(s)?
Otis Redding, try a little tenderness; Bill Withers Ain’t No sunshine when she’s gone.
Where in the world is top of your list to visit?
Nepal and the Himalayan mountains.
What is the one thing that may surprise people about you?
My love for Soul music
