Extreme Endurance Athlete & Probiotic Specialist
Mark Matyazic built his athletic success with the help of YOR Health nutrition. Passionate about his fitness, he has taken YOR Health products since 2009, earned a B.S. in Microbiology, and is an expert on supplements. With 150 marathons, over 100 triathlons and many multi-day Ultra and Expedition Races under his belt, he lauds YOR Health nutritional support for sustaining him through 20 years of amateur and professional competitions, over the world’s toughest terrain. His best time in a race with a distance of 100 miles is 15:38. One of his most spectacular wins is The Coastal Challenge Panama, a race where Mark ran with a bruised heel for six days, climbing volcanoes, traversing rivers, fighting wind swept plateaus and enduring scorching dry heat. Although Mark counts enjoyment more important than a win, his racing history includes, winning and setting a course record at the Big Sur Trail Marathon, 2nd place in the Javelina Jundred, and multiple finishes in the brutal Badwater Ultra-Marathon invitational, a 135 mile ultrarun that National Geographic has deemed the toughest foot race on the planet!

After his courageous recovery from cancer, Danny Jacobs is now stronger than ever, with 5 wins and 0 defeats, since reentering the ring.
