For strangers to the world of endurance, Lesley Paterson’s achievements can be hard to wrap your head around.
She’s a five-time world champion triathlete, with 22 first-place finishes in XTERRA off-road and other endurance races since 2015.
It takes unbreakable determination to do what she’s done, and of course, no shortage of preparation, training, and recovery.
As a BEMER ambassador, Paterson religiously incorporates BEMER therapy into her recovery routine.
To get some insight into how it’s impacted her life as an athlete, we checked in with her and asked some questions about her recovery and performance...
As well as some fun and interesting personal questions to spice things up!
Check out the interview below:
Faster recovery. No question.
As a triathlete, my schedule is packed with swimming, biking, and running. Training is pretty much a full-time job for me.
There’s no way I’d be able to keep up with my training load if I didn’t have BEMER. It’s such a big advantage for me.
I’ll have to bend the rules a bit here because there are two that stand out.
For me, BEMER helps me feel more energized and keeps muscle stiffness at bay.
As you can imagine, I need as much energy as I can get...
And with as much as I train, it can be tough to keep the muscles loose and ready to go.
Definitely. The biggest thing I’ve noticed is mental clarity.
Obviously, that helps with training and competition too, but I just feel more tuned into the moment overall.
Every single day. At this point, I don’t go anywhere without it.
Once I felt the difference it made in my recovery, I was hooked!
I use BEMER all year round — whether I'm competing or not — because it helps keep my body resistant to injury and less inflamed from high training loads.
But I did just compete at the USA National Xterra Championship and WON!
I do! I love listening to techno. The fast pace of the music is perfect for triathlon training.
I love all kinds of dance music, though. I could throw on any style and be happy.
I’ve always been a creative person, and I fell in love with film at a young age...
Even got my Master's degree in Theater.
That passion eventually led me to becoming a screenwriter, so that’s become sort of a mindfulness exercise for me. Watching films and TV also helps take me out of my own world and focus on the moment.
My motivation is very internal — I strive to push my boundaries mentally and physically, and I think I’ve always felt that way.
I'm more concerned with where my limits are rather than the competition. That way, I am in control…
Not only that, it’s ever-changing in so much as I have many other things going on in my life, so I'm focusing on pushing those boundaries based on where I'm at right now!
Lesley’s track record speaks for itself…
But BEMER’s powerful results aren’t reserved for the best of the best. Everyone from casual sports players to seniors can see recovery, performance, and quality of life benefits in just two eight-minute sessions a day.
