Mark Arnall TRAVEL F1T was co-founded by Mark Arnall and Tea Ros to tackle the challenge of staying fit and well while travelling.
Based on personal experience and frustration, the two co-founders made it their mission to improve the hotel fitness offering by making elite-level fitness solutions from F1 available to all travellers. This was a perfect match given their respective expertise. Mark is a renowned fitness and performance coach for F1 drivers and Tea is one of the leading hotel consultants globally.
Tea and Mark are not only business partners, but life partners too, sharing a life-long adventure that encompasses travel, hotels, F1 and fitness. They talk the talk and walk the walk!
Mark is a world-renowned fitness expert with 25 years of experience in F1. During his F1 career, Mark has worked with champion drivers Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen, Mika Häkkinen and David Coulthard.
Mark creates tailor-made training, recovery, nutrition, and travel management programmes to ensure his drivers are in optimum condition at every race. This is no easy task when the F1 calendar requires 240 travel days per year across all time zones. Yet the results speak for themselves; to date Mark has won three World Championships and 215 podiums with his drivers.
Mark has also worked with athletes in the British Athletics team, British Fencing team, members of the England Rugby team as well as renowned artists and top executives seeking health and fitness advice.
Tea is one of the leading hotel consultants globally. With experience working in Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East, she has an excellent understanding of the international hotel industry.
Tea's career of more than 20 years in hospitality has taken her from hotel operations with world-renowned brands including Four Seasons and Rosewood to consultancy and investment advisory roles with global companies JLL and TRI. In 2010, Tea established Strategic Hotel Consulting, providing her with the flexibility to join Mark on the F1 circuit.
A recognised industry professional, Tea is also the President and Board Member of the International Society of Hospitality Consultants (ISHC) and serves on the advisory boards of numerous companies.
