Embrace life

‘How do you hold yourself up in the storm of life? How do you deal with uncertainty, when things don’t go the way they should? No struggle, no victory’, says former speed skater Mark Tuitert. He has been ‘there’ and still challenges himself every day. The Olympic gold medallist has broadened his horizons, becoming co-founder of First Energy Gum, producing his own ‘Drive Podcast’ as well as being a trainer at the online fitness platform Fitchannel. Inspired by the ‘stoics’, Mark is, in turn, inspiring others in his first book, “Drive: Train Your Stoic Mindset”.
