|Full name||Mark Hines|
I am a physiologist who lectures on human and exercise physiology, nutrition and research methods. I teach manual therapists about rehabilitation of injuries. I have also published books on ultra-endurance adventure races, health and nutrition, and fitness training (include Skiing Fitness). I am also an ultra-endurance adventure runner, competing in the toughest races in the world (including the 'real' toughest races - the jungle marathon and the Yukon Arctic ultra - the former in the Amazon and the latter a 430-mile epic through the sub-Arctic. I can comment on all things health, nutrition, exercise and physiology related, as well as running and some aspects of medicine.

Exercise and human physiologist and lecturer at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London.
Academic adviser to leading personal training company (FASTER Fitness Ltd)
Writer of numerous health and fitness-related books ('The Jungle Marathon', 'The Yukon Arctic Ultra', 'The Marathon des Sables', 'Human Evolution, Diet and Health', 'Built to Last' and 'Skiing Fitness'). Soon to be released is a book on 'Our Natural Diet', and later a book on fitness for runner.
I write articles for websites and contribute towards features on anything health, fitness and nutrition related.
The races I compete in are the toughest in the world, and training alone often requires multiple marathons a day, sleep deprivation, and training in all conditions throughout the year. Current intention is to win the 'coldest and toughest' footrace in the world, before attempting to set a new speed record for reaching the North Pole solo and unsupported.
