Rory is a performance coach and fitness expert who has run over 900 marathons and set 8 world records.

But Rory hasn’t always been so fit and healthy. In his own words:

“I was an overweight, 40/day cigarette smoking alcoholic. On 5 January 1994, I realised that I had to change the way I approached life and decided that it was time to stop looking for happiness in drink and cigarettes. 

For the next three months I was motivated by my dream. I stuck to my goals, stopped smoking, gradually increased my exercise regime and controlled my diet. In just three months I was able to run a Half-Marathon in under 2 hours.

Fitness has brought me great happiness and is a fundamental part of my daily life… I’ve completed over 975 Marathons and will complete my dream of 1000 Marathons on 25th September, 2016.”
