Dr. Rajat Chauhan (Author)
Dr Rajat Chauhan is a student of running (for the past thirty-seven years) and pain. He is also an aggressive promoter of GOYA (Get Off Your Arse). He is the founder and race director of La Ultra, an epic ultramarathon held in Ladakh since 2010. The ultramarathon features categories ranging from 11 km to 555 km, with altitudes varying from 11,000 feet to 17,400 feet. He is the author of Move: Get Fit in 15 Weeks and La Ultra: cOuch to 5, 11 & 22 km in 100 days. Dr Chauhan has been a columnist for Mint and Hindustan Times, besides being a guest columnist for national newspapers and magazines. He is a senior fellow at Livonics Institute of Integrated Learning and Research.
Dr Chauhan got his MBBS degree from Manipal College of Medical Sciences, Pokhara, Nepal. Because of his running, he had a head start of more than nine years over his medical college peers in knowing how the human body and mind work in synchronization to perform at an optimal level, one baby step at a time. Dr Chauhan went on to marry his passion and profession by doing his MSc in sports-exercise medicine from Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham, UK. This was followed by membership of the London College of Osteopathic Medicine, London, UK, and several other certificates and diplomas, which give him a unique approach to human performance.
He was exposed to strength training for both performance and rehabilitation for the neck and back pain while heading the medical department at Kieser Training, a German chain of centres, in London. He was the founding head of the sports medicine department at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore, and the (quit) chairperson of the World Congress of Science and Medicine in Cricket, held during the 2011 Cricket World Cup which was hosted by India. He was also the founding director of the sports department at Manipal Hospital, and the principal running technical consultant and head coach for Adidas India. He was also the founding director of sports and exercise at Ashoka University.

'Becoming CEO of your body and mind'

Dr Rajat Chauhan and Dr Darren Player have seen it all. They know what it is like to break real and imaginary obstacles when it comes to exercising, whether it's for a peak performance or getting back from a disease or achieving optimal health. Drawing from a range of experiences, MoveMint Medicine empowers readers to become CEOs of their own body and mind-not by pushing one to the limit but by building on small victories.
Dr Chauhan and Dr Player focus on a widely ignored element of exercising: the mind. This book goes against the grain by drawing reader attention to mental health and its importance for one's physical self. Never preachy and always funny,
MoveMint Medicine is the only book one needs to read to become a better version of oneself.

As doctors, we are often made to think that we are gods. We are taught how to treat disease, how to do surgeries and how to fix broken bones. We are not taught how to create health. I started my health journey eight years back, late by any standards, at the age of forty-eight years. And I feel the fittest now, more than ever in my life. I am grateful to know Dr Rajat Chauhan, who convinced me that I didn't have a major problem when I was advised a knee replacement, who lifted my morale when it was at rock bottom after years of pain and who told me that I would be able to run a marathon one day. Yoga happened by chance. I was desperately looking for solutions as medicine did not give me any. Yoga taught me that health is very simple and doable; it's the disease that should be difficult. I wish Rajat and Darren all the best for this beautiful book and I feel blessed to be part of itLife has become too hectic to think about all the steps to good health and fitness. This book gives you a blueprint written in a very innovative and interesting way. It's a must-read for professionals and laymen alike who are looking to improve their health and fitness holisticallyI shied away from accepting what I suspected-my mental state was dictated by my physical state. This book helped me unshackle myself. I am what I do, eat and sleep!
