Graduate and fitness entrepreneur Ross Edgley discusses the commercial fat-loss revolution in an inspirational talk

School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences graduate Ross Edgley will be returning to Loughborough on the 5th May to present a talk "Flavoured Fat Loss, Fitness and Business" covering developments within the food and fitness markets and turning your passion into a profession.

An inspirational entrepreneur, Ross began his career as an athlete playing water polo for Great Britain and is now a successful businessman with his own award-winning global nutrition business.

Since graduating from Loughborough University, Ross has applied the knowledge gained from his study of sport science to become a strength and conditioning coach and performance nutritionist before going on to become co-founder of one of the UK's most innovative sports nutrition companies - The Protein Works.

He has been applauded for his work and for raising money for charities such as Teenage Cancer Trust, Sports Aid and United Through Sport in The #WorldsStrongestMarathon where he ran 26.2 miles pulling a 1,400kg Mini.

Since receiving a first-class honour for his dissertation on the different strength and power adaptations to various training protocols, he has conducted experiments aiming to demonstrate to people that ‘weight loss’ is very different from ‘fat loss’ and that scales shouldn’t govern people's nutrition or self-esteem. In one of his most well-publicized experiments, Ross used a variety of methods to lose over 24 pounds in 24 hours, setting an unofficial British Powerlifting record in the process - a stunt that trended on Twitter worldwide.

Ross's talk will provide insights into the cutting-edge science of fat loss and the latest studies in psychology, all served with snacks, treats and truffles straight from the TPW™ Bakery!

‘Flavoured Fat Loss, Fitness & Business with Ross Edgley’ by The Studio is free of charge.

The conference will take place on Friday 5th May at the Design School, Loughborough University.
