In the 1970s, Sisson was a record-setting runner for the Portland (Maine) Track Club.
Sisson served for 15 years as chairman of the International Triathlon Union (ITU) Anti-Doping Commission and as the ITU's liaison to the International Olympic Committee. He was asked to step down from the roles due to conflict of interest in 2003 when he started his own dietary supplement company, Primal Nutrition. He is a follower of the paleo diet and markets his own version of it, called "the primal blueprint" diet.
