Jacob: Hello everybody and welcome to the Enchanting Lawyer podcast and Happy New Year. This is one of our first shows for the year and we’re going to start strong with some good content and good tips for a better preparation for anything in life, anything you do this year.
I am excited to have a very special guest here with me today, right here at the office with me. His name is Kestutis Rasimavicius. He is a genetics scientist from the Sanger Institute and business entrepreneur with a very extensive experience in Nutrigenomics, the study of relations between nutrition and genes, and currently is the CEO of Genegauge Labs LLC.
It’s interesting that Kestutis is also an athlete and a bodybuilder and we’ll talk about some of those things that people like him do to achieve their goals and make their life amazing.
Kestutis, welcome to the show. I’m excited to have you here at the office.
Kestutis: Thanks, Jacob. It’s great to be here.
Jacob: We talked a little bit before starting the recording but I wanted to maybe share a little bit about your background, where you’re from, and how you got in from being — started as an athlete, continue being an athlete but getting into the science field. Just a little bit about your background.
Kestutis: Well, I started doing sports when I was eight years old so it’s a very early age. I think this is one of the important things to start early. I gained a lot from that, from starting early, because sort of you indoctrinate yourself in the positive way.
I started doing judo when I was eight years old. I had great coaches. They taught me a lot. They taught me about morals, they taught me about discipline, and respect for your opponent, never use the force on the street and things like that. So that’s when my journey started.
At the age of 14, I had the head injury during one of the training sessions when I just blacked out completely. I woke up walking around in circles outside the dojo. I knew that something went wrong.
I could not remember what — I was aware of myself but I could not remember things. But everything sort of came back to me a little later so I was fine in that sense.
I’ve been checked by the doctors and they said that I shouldn’t continue judo which was very disappointing for me. But I really had this drive and passion for doing something physical so I went and did some weights to keep myself in shape and not to go crazy. That’s when I started lifting weights.
