Meet our new Ambassador and former professional rugby player Ed Jackson!
Ed played professionally for 10 years after he left school for various teams including Bath, London Welsh, Wasps and NG Dragons.
11 months ago, Ed went through a serious incident where he broke his neck diving into a swimming pool which put an end to his rugby career. His official prognosis was that he would never be able to walk or use his arms again and that he would need an electric wheelchair. Since then, Ed has been on his road to recovery. Initially, he had to deal with being a quadriplegic but managed to rehab himself into a manual wheelchair. He’s been progressing ever since and is now back on his feet with the use of walking aids!
Having spent 10 years playing professional sport, Ed has used every supplement under the sun in terms of type and brand. It is such a big part of sport and recovery with the amount of training they have to do. Since the accident, Ed’s taken much more of an interest into what’s going into his body, so that nothing can hinder his recovery. He found it difficult to find a balance between getting stronger but not putting on too much weight – caution of putting on weight as he was not burning any calories, he needed quality products and that’s when he found SF Nutrition.
Ed loves that all of our products are 100% natural and that we haven’t compromised on taste. He says that most proteins he’s used in the past taste nice because they are full of sugar and sweeteners. He’s trying to do the ‘holy grail’ of getting lean and strong at the same time. But with the right nutrition and food supplements, it is possible and he’s never looked back.
Ed truly is an inspiration to us all and we're so excited that he's going to be a part of our team, writing all about his journey and experience. So keep an eye out for more to come from him soon!
