WPA announces partnership with five-time Olympian Jo Pavey

WPA has teamed up with five-time Olympian, former European 10,000m champion, World Championship and Commonwealth Games medallist, Jo Pavey, to help the team beat the winter blues and get a bit healthier in the process. 

To launch the partnership, Jo has designed some basic training plans and ‘one minute’ video guides on warming-up, stretching, nutrition and running programmes to help staff take the first step into a healthier 2023:

The physical benefits of running are well documented from improving heart health and quality of sleep, to strengthening muscles and lowering your chances of having a stroke and many other conditions. 

Jo said: “I love to run and what better opportunity to share my passion with everyone at WPA and beyond. 

“Running complements my hectic family life and keeps me going, pushing my body while embracing everything that the great outdoors throws at me.  WPA share my values and running is accessible, inclusive and fun.”

Mark Southern, WPA’s Director of Sales and Marketing, added: “Jo is an inspiration and lives just down the road from WPA in Devon.  Like so many of us, her life is a balance between work, family, health and happiness.  Jo is already helping us with our latest initiative, Jog on January encouraging us all to run and work off our festive excess.”
