In my last blog I said that I wanted a memorable Olympic Games. Well it certainly was memorable but unfortunately not necessarily for the reasons that I wished for!
Three weeks before the Olympics I threw a personal best and British record of 66.17m in the wind and rain at Crystal Palace. I had the best first three rounds of my life. However, in a latter round of the competition I partially tore an elbow ligament. Going into an MRI scanner on your 30th birthday (2 days after the competition), not knowing if you’re going to be able to compete in a home Olympics when you are in the shape of your life is not an experience I would recommend! I was thankfully given the all-clear to compete. My physio did a superb job to get me back to full fitness.
The only issue was that I had not thrown maximally in that time as I had to save the hardest efforts for inside the stadium. Unfortunately on my last warm up throw inside the stadium my elbow ligament fully ruptured making me unable to feel my hand. I tried to throw but the lack of feeling made it impossible. After the third round, the pain hit me.
I have never believed in luck until this experience. For whatever reason, I was not meant to be successful in London. I’m sure in years to come I will figure out why. However, my desire is still as strong as ever and at 30 I am still improving so all I can think of is that a medal in Rio will be that much sweeter.
I have since had an operation to reattach the ligament and I am back training moderately on the rest of my body. I have what can only be described as a Forrest Gump style brace on my right arm. When that comes off in a month or so’s time, the road to Rio 2016 starts. Success does have a destination but you have to enjoy the process. I do and that’s what matters most.
Are our Olympians inspiring you to make a change or even to help others make the change? Why not check out TTR's PT courses and see where it could take you!
I would definitely reccomend
Everyone I have spoken to has been very helpful and have managed to answer all my questions and I find the learning platform really easy to use
Chris, was fantastic from start to finish. No hard sell just informative, helpful and very knowledgeable. The process was quick and easy. Cannot wait to start the course
I have just gone through the process of enrolling on a level 3 PT, with a level 4 nutrition course to follow. Having previous fitness qualifications and training experiences, I have been bowled over by the knowledge, support and professionalism that the training room have provided through my enquiry. Carl has been fantastic and Charlotte just as much in getting me setup. I can’t wait to get started!! You have made this such an easy decision in choosing the Training Room to be my PT training provider. Thank you
They are very thorough and helpful, positive and very nice people over the phone also, helped with any questions i had and lastly never rushed through calls letting me feel like i don’t need to rush into something i don’t know about as they never moved forward with the conversation without making sure i was happy first
I would recommend them. They are very supportive and very professional. Very excited to start my course, as I know I'm in good hands..
Course is easy to follow and interesting so far
Everything from the customer service and the amount of information you get told about the course was excellent. Highly recommend, very good resources available and easy to follow.

You have constant contact with loads of extremely helpful and happy staff. The learning is set out so you can work at your own pace and if you get stuck then help is just a phonecall or email away. I wish i found this sooner!

Leon David William Wilson
so far the information has been very informative and the help has been very good
Everybody was really helpful and informative, giving me a good step-by-step guide as to the processes I would be going through as I progress along the course.
Professional, friendly and very personalized experience. These guys are not just about taking your money off you. Early introduction to personal course tutor already tested with excellent response time. The course itself is really good -modular and very industry specific with constant reference to real life application. You literally need to know nothing to successfully complete this course yet its not overly simplistic so it doesn't bore the more knowledgeable student -highly recommendable.
It's not cheap neither is it overly expensive. I have 3 months holiday before i start payment. Combined with early certification on modules means i could be earning by the time i start paying and its in installment spread over the better part of 3 years -lovely! Ultimately in life you get what you pay for -this has already being money very well invested so again excellent value for money. Very impressed -well done guys.
Very helpful and profesional staff
I’m very happy with the Support offered.
