We don’t forget to get our cars serviced to keep them on the road, so why are we so blasé about our bodies? Two of our in-house GPs provide advice on how to optimise your sports performance.

See the doctor... When you're healthy

We don’t forget to get our cars serviced to keep them on the road, so why are we so blasé about our bodies?

Men’s health should not just about disease prevention, awareness of your vital organs or figuring out what your symptoms mean. 

It is also about making sure we optimise your wellbeing so that you can do the things you love. 

Whether it’s Couch to 5k, a sporting event like a triathlon, tough mudder or a half marathon, it’s important to make sure you know how your body works:

  • What does it run on?
  • How does it recover?
  • How do you keep it tuned?

Let’s eliminate the guesswork and help you stay on top of your performance whatever your event or your drive to fitness.   

Exercise is not just for the elite, it is for all of us and seeing your GP should not be  just for illness or injury either. 

Our doctors are here to help
