Alastair Lynch knows how it feels to reach the pinnacle in professional sport. He played over 300 games in the AFL, captained the Brisbane Lions, and won 3 premierships. His was an impressive career, but one that was almost derailed due to a debilitating illness in his prime.
Alastair fought an illness that professionals new little about, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. CFS patients suffer from extreme fatigue that can't be explained by an underlying medical condition. The fatigue worsens with physical or mental activity, but doesn't improve with rest. Alastair also suffered from depression that he attributed to the exhausting effects of CFS. Despite the health challenges, and an ageing body, he was able to succeed at the highest level in the game.
Upon his retirement from the AFL, Alastair chose to dedicate the next part of his life to helping others. As a director of the Healthy Business Performance Group, he applies his on-field lessons to help others.
