Following big footsteps
It’s not every day that someone 6 feet 7 inches tall (2.01m) is called “small” and it’s not every day that you meet someone who has worked in 6 countries by the age of 33.  It’s also not every day you meet someone who has represented their sport at an international level, and whose father, brother, and nephew have all represented their country at that same sport. 

It’s not every day you get to meet Ilian Evtimov, but we’re really glad we did!

Ilian plays small forward for Cholet Basket in the French pro basketball league and is the son of the former captain of the Bulgarian national basketball team and brother of another Euroleague hoops player.  He played college basketball in the USA (NC State University ’06) and went on to play professional basketball in Spain, Italy, Germany, Cyprus, and France. We were fortunate that Ilian’s wife found FitnessGenes while doing some research on injury prevention and decided to give us a try.
