WHEYD Athletes

PD SAVAGE

With a name that was born to be in lights, PD is already a veteran at the European CrossFit Regionals and even placed 10th in 2018 as an individual athlete amongst Europe’s finest. In 2020, he won the Irish National Champ by winning the Open, giving him his first ever ticket to The CrossFit Games.

  • 2 x Regionals Team Athlete with CrossFit 8020 (2016 & 2017)

“I chose to #UPGRADEtoWHEYD because I wanted to use the cleanest high quality whey I can. It’s trusted by informed sport and believe it’s the best whey product on the market. I also love the ethical stance they have, giving back to charity and minimising their carbon footprint.”

    TAYLA HOWE

    The only Welshy of the WHEYD team, Tayla knows here way around a barbell and has lifted some heavy weights on the very biggest stages including winning the British Weightlifting title in July 2018. Get ready to see Tayla go big on the CrossFit scene & we have high hopes for her at CrossFit Strength in Depth in Feb '19 (especially as she came 4th in the qualifiers!)

    • Commonwealth Games 2018 for Wales - finishing 6th. Highest placed British athlete

    "I chose to #UPGRADEtoWHEYD because previously I wasn't getting the sufficient nutrition for optimal recovery after my workouts. One of the main reasons for switching to WHEYD however was that I can easily tolerate it as opposed to other whey protein powders that made me feel sick - WHEYD is the first and only whey I've been able to drink without any side effects!

    I also only look to take products that are safe and with WHEYD being Informed Sport tested it's a perfect match!"
