ATHLETE PROFILE 

Tom Hamer is a World European and Commonwealth champion S14 Para Swimmer and current world record holder in the S14 category. He has competed and trained all around the world and continues to do so in his run up to the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020. Tom has been involved in the testing and feedback of our Levitex® Mattress for the last six weeks. 

INITIAL IMPRESSIONS AFTER FIRST COUPLE OF NIGHTS 

“My first thoughts after a couple of night’s sleep on the Levitex® Mattress was that I found it incredibly hard in comparison to my old one. You do sink in a little bit so turning over disturbs you at first whilst the mattress reacts. However I did find I slept well on it.” 

THOUGHTS AFTER FIRST WEEK 

“Completely used to the mattress now, sleeping very soundly. As a swimmer I tend to get up very early to train and then go back to bed in the afternoon for a rest before an evening training session. Im finding it great for both a good night’s sleep as well as those short hour rests during the day. If anything I’m tending to oversleep in the afternoon. Feeling very rested and recovered ready for my evening training sessions.”

THOUGHTS AFTER FIRST MONTH 

“Having travelled away to train this month and sleeping in regular beds I’ve found it really difficult. Really miss my own bed now, after the first couple of nights feeling a bit uncomfortable, can genuinely say its now the best mattress Ive ever slept on! Looking forward to testing the Levitex® Pillow’s now and the fact I can take that away with me is a big plus.”
