• Even though not a linear process, life is learning, and learning is life. As I look back on my journey, I realize that every now and again, remarkable people enter our industry.
  • Over the years, I have been very fortunate to cross paths with so many great individuals who greatly influenced my development.  
  • In 'People that Inspire' series, I share some of the most impactful lessons I learnt from the battle-scared veterans, industry insiders, research extraordinaires and all-round amazing human beings.

True innovation is rare. Meet Tim N. Ziegenfuss, PhD FISSN CSCS, the founder and CEO of the Center for Applied Health Sciences, a trail blazer with a stellar, 3 decade long track-record of breaking the mold across several domains, most notably, sports nutrition and exercise science.

As a former president of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, Dr Ziegenfuss is most renowned for his undeniable impact on the dietary supplement industry. After having the experience of sitting across both sides of the research table, academic and private, Dr Ziegenfuss continues to research, prototype and deliver some of the most groundbreaking formulations and products.

On a personal note, I have been following Dr Ziegenfuss's work from afar since 2010 (distilled in a 90 second video below!). They say 'never meet your heroes', but I still remember my early AM chat with the industry legend in Las Vegas at the 2019 annual ISSN conference!
