“I first started working with Edge in 2019 after I was referred to him by one of my coaches to help me become stronger on the pitch. I had just started playing with girls that were stronger and older than me and wanted to work on being able to hold my own as well as putting a bigger focus on injury prevention in my training.


Now, around 2 and a half years later, I have seen a drastic improvement in my strength and physicality with it becoming a major asset in my game. Also, being able to train for long periods throughout the year without getting injured has come from the work I have done with Edge. I have also started improving my running technique to further develop my game.


Overall, I have seen my time with Edge as being extremely beneficial as he is a very dedicated coach who is constantly learning new things and applying them to my training to help me improve. He has also become a great friend who I can always have a laugh with, even when he has me dying from conditioning. Training with Edge has become essential to my game and my development in becoming a professional athlete.”
Kahli’s testimonial for Speed Academy
“My main goals with Edge were to build my strength, power and speed to help increase my likelihood of being selected for the Young Matildas World Cup Squad in Costa Rica. My strength and power improved on the pitch significantly due to my football specific gym program, but what was most notable was the increase in my speed. Our time together working on my running mechanics during Covid helped to further develop my acceleration and top speed. As a footballer, I learnt the fundamentals of sprinting mechanics which has transferred significantly to my open play during a game. I couldn’t recommend Edge enough when looking to increase speed as a footballer.”
