PS A longer BIOGRAPHY of the 2 speakers is shown below ….
Dr. John Heiss is the director of Herbalife’s sports and fitness products for Worldwide Product Marketing. With his expertise, the company has launched the first phase of a new programme to develop a ‘pro’ line of high-performance sports products.
Before joining Herbalife, Heiss was the founder of an endurance sports nutritional company. He formed this as he was not happy with what he could find on the market to fuel the needs of competitive cyclists such as himself. To do this he applied his considerable knowledge of what the athlete’s body REALLY needs. He earned a Ph.D. from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in biological chemistry, where he discovered how single proteins function within cells. The findings from his research work have been published in several peer-reviewed journals.
As a category 2 competitive cyclist, Heiss has a detailed understanding of the nutritional needs of endurance athletes.
Kunle Odetoyinbo is an accredited consultant sport science and nutrition specialist, who has vast experience in elite sport both in the UK and abroad. In addition he provides exercise prescription, rehabilitation and lifestyle advice as part of his practice. He graduated from St Mary’s University College in 1990 with a combined Honours Degree in Human Biology and Sports Science whilst competing in semi-professional football and amateur athletics.
He then furthered his studies with an MSc Sports Science gained from Loughborough University and has since completed Post graduate Diplomas in nutritional medicine and sports nutrition (International Olympic committee).
Practically Kunle is a qualified club coach, with qualifications in athletics, football, tennis and basketball.
Some of his first appointments involved lecturing and research positions where physiology and nutrition were his main focus. At the University of Surrey Roehampton in 1995, he was granted a research fellowship and created the Sports Performance Assessment & Research Consultancy (SPARC) which continues to provide sport science support to elite sport. To this day he has maintained visiting lecturer status at other institutions including Oxford Brookes University and St Mary’s University College.
Kunle is currently more applied in his work in the sport performance-driven environment. This work has involved working with sports medicine specialists, managers/coaches of elite teams in premiership/championship football and rugby, as well as governing bodies of sport both in the UK and abroad.
When asked about what most excites him in sports science, he replied: “I remain excited by the plasticity and adaptability of the human body and continue to strive to apply my knowledge and experience to aid performance, rehabilitation, health and wellbeing for all who consult me”.
