As part of our fantastic ongoing relationship with Red Bull UK, it was great to be invited down to London to deliver our services to the staff at the UK head office in London. We normally spend all our time helping the Red Bull athletes, so it was great to be able to help out the amazing and hard working people in the company. Harris & Ross Director and co-founder Jeff Ross, senior physio Becky Hodgkiss, High Performance Manager Darren Roberts and podiatrist Will Joyce all went to London to deliver the day.
Darren gave a talk the staff on the links between high performance with athletes & high performance in the workplace – drawing many parallels with the companies athletes and what we do with them and how the staff can implement that in their own work sphere. Everyone had the opportunity to book themselves in to have a running gait analysis with Will and a physio assessment from either Jeff or Becky. This was all aimed at injury prevention and helping people with existing injuries obtaining a higher level of activity. As you can imagine with such a dynamic brand like Red Bull, many employees were keen MTBers, runners, skiers, snowboarders, surfers and every other sport you can imagine – it was fantastic to be able to treat them just like athletes, with advice and treatment to keep them going not just in their sport but in the workplace.
After a long and busy day, the team packed up and headed back north on the train – it was a great experience to be able to deliver to everyone in the office in London meeting the amazing people in the company.
