Menthéour, Erwann


Former professional road racing cyclist, active between 1994 to 1997, Erwann Menthéour experienced the best and worst of top-level competition: the virtues of training, discipline and pushing your limits, and the evils of doping, to which both the athlete’s body and the spirit of sport are exposed.

Menthéour rang the alarm early on with his best-selling autobiography, Secret Défonce (Éditions JC Lattès, 140 000 copies sold), translated into several languages.

An expert in the field of nutrition and physical preparation, he is the author of best-selling books on health and wellness as well as a newspaper and media consultant. In 2011, he created La méthode Fitnext (150,000 copies sold), a unique interactive coaching tool to support healthy living through diet, sports, and relaxation.

Menthéour is a leading voice in the field of digital health and wellness.
