Experience and qualifications
Faye joined Helping Hands in February 2019, having previously worked for Europe’s number one health and fitness company. Prior to this, Faye completed her Bachelor of Science in Sport and Exercise Physiology and is also a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition.
Faye’s scientific research expertise involves the investigation into the effects of pain tolerance upon sports performance and recovery, in both elite and recreation athletes. She presented her work at the British Association of Sport and Exercise Science Conference in 2015, in the presence of Britain’s leading sport scientist, Professor Greg Whyte – who is well-known for his involvement in Comic Relief.
She has plenty of experience conducting evidence-based research, from laboratory testing to psychological tests. She regularly reads journals and attends clinical conferences to ensure her knowledge is up to date.
Faye has also worked with several high-profile organisations, providing nutrition and fitness support to Sky Sports, GB Rowing, Warrington Wolves RLFC and St. Helens RLFC. She’s also been quoted for her expert knowledge in major online and offline publications including, Men’s Health, Daily Mail and the Evening Times.
In her spare time, Faye puts her passion in to practice as a competitive event rider, and even fits time in to play netball twice a week.
Above all, Faye loves to spend time with her family back home in Cheshire. She often helped care for her Grandad who unfortunately lost his battle to Alzheimer’s back in 2017. Now a charity close to her heart, Faye takes part in the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk annually.
