Dan Williams is a fitness influencer who inspires others to overcome adversity by sharing his personal story and life experiences.
Dan was admitted to hospital in December 2012 for a routine stent heart procedure. Instead of leaving hospital at the end of the day as he expected, he suffered multiple heart attacks. The following day he underwent open-heart surgery where he was revived twice during the operation. After this traumatic experience, Dan gradually found himself drifting back into his old habits. He decided a drastic change was needed and he decided to reconnect with his passion for running.
Since then Dan has gone on to achieve top USA ranking as a masters track athlete. He also received All American honors from the United States Track and Field Association. Now aged 71, he completes nationally and internationally at 200 and 400 metres and is ranked in the USA as a top athlete in his age group.
Now, Dan shares his experiences and the life principles that can help bring about change, reinvent yourself and choose a healthy lifestyle.
