Mark Sisson is a celebrated best-selling health and fitness author credited as the “godfather” of paleo/primal and a leading figure in the ancestral health community. He is a former world-class distance runner, triathlete and Ironman competitor, finishing 4th in the February 1982 Ironman World Championship. He secured a top-5 finish in the 1980 U.S. National Marathon Championships and earned a qualifying spot for the U.S. Olympic trials. After retiring from professional competition, Mark coached hundreds of professional athletes to success.
