“The World’s Most Travelled Fitness Expert” (GQ Magazine), Ross Edgley has been at the forefront of the industry for over 10 years. Originally from Grantham, the former Great Britain water polo player received a first class degree from the renowned Loughborough University School of Sport and Exercise Science and decided to pursue a career in performance nutrition and strength coaching.
In November 2018, Ross completed his most gruelling challenge to date. In 157 days, he completed his 'Great British Swim', whereby he swam around mainland Britain, breaking three world records in the process. Swimming 12 hours a day and a total of 2,883km, Ross' determination to succeed and ability to smash through any pain barriers with ease has earned him worldwide acclaim.
With an “aversion to the average” he challenges conventional wisdom and is considered to be a scientist, sociologist, and philosopher of training and nutrition, proven by the success of his Sunday Times no. 1 bestseller 'The World's Strongest Book', released in May 2018. Much of Ross’s publicity has come from his gruelling fitness stunts, such as his ‘World’s Strongest Marathon’, where he pulled a 1.4 tonne MINI Countryman 26.2 miles around Silverstone in just under 20 hours. Not only do his stunts push the boundaries of physical strength, they also raise huge amounts of money for charities close to his heart.
In 2012, Ross became a co-founder of The Protein Works, one of the UK’s most innovative sports nutrition companies. Along with his involvement with this award winning company, Ross frequently writes for a range of publications including GQ, Men’s Health, The Telegraph, Men’s Fitness, Askmen.com and many others.
