Dec 05, 2023

What would you do if someone tells you that you are not allowed to do a certain sport or passion because of  your genetics?

Ultramarathon Runner Lisa Tamati experienced that at the beginning of her athletic career but it didn't stop her. That very statement alone allowed her to work around her genetics and build strengths and understand weaknesses that allowed her to do the impossible - completing over 140 marathons and accomplishing the 222km track of the Himalayas.

Lisa Tamati is renown for being a Professional Ultra Endurance athlete with 25 years experience running the toughest endurance events in the world. 

With over 140 ultra-marathons to her name, as well as National Titles, a number of podium places in international races & many expeditions under her belt, Lisa is constantly pushing the limits of human endurance. Lisa has also penned two international best-selling running books, and is a sought after motivational speaker & health optimisation coach.

In this episode, Kashif and Lisa discuss the importance of knowing one's genetics in order to fully optimize your health, longevity, and rate of aging. Lisa's profile is the perfect example in this case. Lisa shares how she deals with oxidative stress, how she reverted her health into an optimal state, diet, lifestyle, and keeping her age rate to less than a minimum.

Throughout the discussion, Lisa also shares one of her most memorable races, also known as the world's highest running race, where she battled through a series of trials - asthma attacks, lack of oxygen, fear, extreme temperatures, and everything else unimaginable yet proven possible by Lisa and her peers.
