Hello and welcome! My name is Andy Kumar. My two biggest passions in life are health and well-being. I live by the ethos that prevention is better than cure, and strive to continually enhance my fitness on a daily basis. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2005 as a young, fit and healthy individual. I began to wonder why I was diagnosed with this condition. This led me to embark upon an academic journey during which I have gained a range of qualifications in science and fitness, and I am currently pursuing a PhD in microbiology/immunology. I also regularly compete in road running races, and am a passionate cyclist.
As an athlete and tech enthusiast, I blog about my recent races, and review fitness related gadgets. I am also a keen ‘Zwifter’, and have a particular interest in turbo training (a necessary training aid for any cyclist living in Britain!).
