Hi, we are two firefighters from Cardiff.
On 4th December 2011, as 'Team Atlantic Dash', myself, John Haskell and my colleague Kevin Dite, will attempt to row the Atlantic Ocean.
It will be an unsupported, self-sufficient journey of up to three months. We are hoping to raise £100,000 for Breast Cancer Care, Help For Heroes and Firefighters Charity.
To be in absolute peak physical condition is not just an advantage, it could be the difference between life and death. Our training regime is both gruelling and relentless. As a keen rugby union player (prop forward) I suffer from all the usual aches, strains and joint pains. That was, until Nikki kindly sent us a pair of wristbands to wear to aid healing and speed up recovery.
To be brutally honest I was never convinced in the technology of these products. How wrong was I? From the first few hours of wearing the wristband, the stiffness seemed to lift from my joints and I trained to a higher level of punishment. What I wasn't expecting was what can only be described as a new spring in my step accompanied by a feeling of well being. I've also noticed around the rugby club how many other sportsmen wear them and when questioned, absolutely swear by them.
Kevins body was punished in the Royal Marines and suffers the same. His only regret is 'I wish I had come across Bioflow wristbands years ago - mine has not left my wrist since it arrived'.
Try one and I'm sure you'll feel the same way as us about them.
Please follow our challenge and let us know if you treat yourself to a Bioflow wristband.
Kind regards, John and Kevin Team Atlantic Dash.
