Greg Whyte

Professor Greg Whyte OBE specialises in the scientific side of sport and has become renowned worldwide as a leading authority on exercise and fitness. As a motivational speaker, Greg can draw on his extensive knowledge of physiology and physical performance as well as his time as a modern pentathlete.
