Limerick based, Fleming Medical, have launched Team Physiologix that will see the family business sponsor four aspiring local athletes as they take on a personal fitness challenge.
Fleming Medical are delighted to announce the launch of Team Physiologix. We are excited to partner with four local amateur athletes from across Limerick & Clare. Over the coming months we will be sponsoring these aspiring athletes as they each take on a milestone personal challenge.
Supporting Local Communities
Over the past 35 years, Fleming Medical have put local communities first through our partnerships with local pharmacies. Communities have grown to trust and rely on our Medicare, Medicare LifeSense and Physiologix that are available in pharmacies nationwide.
We aim to further strengthen this trust with local communities and pharmacies through the launch of Team Physiologix. The campaign welcomes a new era of our partnership that will see local athletes use our Physiologix sports supports and sport therapy products to ensure they achieve their personal fitness challenges safely and successfully.
Promoting Injury Recovery & Prevention
Research conducted in 2022, has shown that “72 percent of Irish people who regularly participate in sport have sustained an injury”. (Sport for Business, 2022)
Team Physiologix aims to address these startling statistics by emphasising effective injury recovery and prevention. Our four amateur athletes will demonstrate how to use our vast range of Physiologix sport therapy solutions and document their journeys on social media.

“I have started taking my fitness journey seriously in January 2023 by signing up for my first ever 10K race. I committed myself to a 17-week training plan ahead of the race where I was running 3 times a week as well as strength training to support my goals. I also completed two 60- & 85-day wellness & fitness challenges alongside this training and kept myself accountable by tracking it on my social media accounts. My current goals are to complete the hybrid mental toughness & fitness challenge of 75 Hard as well as achieving a personal best in my next 10K race in October.”

“I am an enthusiastic runner who found solace in the sport amidst the Covid pandemic. Over the past two years, I have conquered three marathons, reducing my time from 3 hours and 26 minutes to 3 hours flat. I recently secured a commendable third place finish in the Kilkee half marathon. My sights are set on the Dublin marathon, my immediate objective is to break the coveted 3-hour barrier. Looking further ahead, I aspire to participate in as many of the renowned world majors as possible”.

“Hi, I’m Lisa. I have been running for about six years now and I am part of my local running club. I take part in road races and cross-country races from 5km to marathon distance. My greatest achievement is completing the Limerick Marathon in April, and I am now working towards the Dublin Marathon in October. My dream race is the London Marathon!”

“Hi, my name is Karl. I got into running when I was 16 years old. I really got into running in school when I realized we got days off to go to races. I was so motivated with getting days off school that I won 9 national titles from under 20 to under 23. This earned me a scholarship to run in college in Louisiana. I picked up a serious hip injury while in Louisiana so now I am trying to return to my previous level of training while enjoying myself. My short-term goal now is to run 2:38 for the Dublin Marathon.”
