Sport Relief – Jo Whiley

Jo-In-A-Box Challenge

In 2014, Rich was delighted to get the call again to help with another Sport Relief challenge; this time helping Jo Whiley complete 26 hours on a treadmill in a box outside the BBC studios. Megan also provided valuable hands on treatment during the event in which Jo completed over 100 miles. It was a pleasure to help throughout and we even made the highlights video! www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01w02pk

“Undertaking a Sport Relief challenge is plainly an act of madness. You tend to say Yes then panic after. However there was no need to panic because when it came to my challenge of walking/jogging on a treadmill in a Perspex box for 26 hours I was in the hands of The Professionals…

Rich was my advisor from the very beginning. He gave me exercises to undertake and worked on me when I was trying to get on top of a thigh injury throughout the process. Over the course of the challenge the attention I received was invaluable. I honestly don’t know how I would have got through the Sport Relief experience with my feet/legs and sanity intact without his diligent care. He was with me literally every step of the way, administering massage, draining blisters & changing my socks and shoes to protect my feet and get me to the finish line. Albeit with ice packs strapped to my knees! I couldn’t be more thankful to Rich and Megan! They were calm, professional and knowledgeable in the extreme. Thanks guys!” Jo Whiley
