Eilish McColgan Great Britain runner providing testimonial to Extra Mile Health


"I started working with Chris in 2015, after moving to Manchester. Since then we've worked together in getting my body ready for an Olympic Games final, two World Championship finals and two European medals along the way. It's been down to Chris' consistency on keeping on top of my niggles and ensuring they don't turn into bigger injuries that's allowed me to clock personal bests across all distances. Consistency within my training was something I really lacked and often would struggle with several months out of the sport, injured. Keeping healthy has been a welcomed change and I couldn't thank Chris enough for all his help on being part of my journey."
