Panagiotis, the founder of ketOntrack, is passionate about health and helping people around the world to get back on track.
"I am personally engaged with all of my clients throughout their journey to gain the experience, knowledge, and belief to support their life-transforming habits.
As a coach, I believe having more energy and feeling better are key for going after your goals. To achieve this, I take a holistic approach to health based on 5 pillars and always in a step-by-step approach.
This holistic approach is for everyone – Everyone who had dieted in the past but failed to reach their goals. For those who have issues like insulin resistance, fatigue, or sleep issues. For those who want to learn about the benefits of a lifestyle based on a nutritional low-carb diet and fasting or want to learn how to bio-hack their performance and live a healthier life."
"If you're like me then you love nothing better than to get outside when you can and explore. I find that if I need a bit of a motivational boost – to get that feeling of true contentment, then to be outdoors running, walking, playing is where I need to be.
I believe that health and vitality is optimised by efficient breathing, a focused mind, and body awareness. This allows you to tap into your natural, intuitive flow of breath, energy, and movement."
With over 10-years experience leading adventure holidays and retreats in health and fitness, Gray is a personal trainer, running coach, and breath-worker with a master certification in the Oxygen Advantage and Buteyko methods.

"Gray changed my life within the first 10 seconds of seeing me run! I have been a serious runner since childhood but had all kinds of injuries. Then in my mid 30s I started getting calf tears more and more regularly. I tried everything to no avail. Someone put me onto the Chi Running book, which helped somewhat but not completely. Then I discovered Gray. Within 10 seconds of him watching me run he spotted things that no book could. He transformed my running immediately, and each week improves it further. I can now run as far as I like in complete confidence that I won’t get injured. Thank you Gray!"
"Working with Panagiotis has been a great experience. he has a deep understanding of how nutrition affects not just weight but also overall health and wellbeing: for me, being able to see the big picture has been a major motivator. Since I started I haven't just lost weight but my sleep has improved, my energy levels are higher and I just feel better during the day."
