Meet Co-Founders Pip & Tom
DayOne Wellness was founded in October 2014 with one mission: Health Empowerment for all ages in Kent. They are dedicated to simplifying wellbeing so more people can live their best life for the longest.
Together, Pip and Tom have travelled to some of the poorest and most remote parts of the world. Ironically it was here that they were greeted by some of the healthiest and happiest individuals they’d ever come across!
Tom says: It was like a lightbulb moment, all the happiest, healthiest people we met all did three things:
1. They ate real food from the land – not packets.
2. They moved outside daily – rather than sitting in boxes.
3. They invested time in face-to-face relationships – rather than social media followings.
Pip says: Wellbeing for us, isn’t about weight loss or six packs. It’s about fueling performance. A mentally and physically well person performs better at home with their family and at work with their colleagues. Wellbeing is the only thing every human on the planet can put to the top of their priority lists and it have a positive benefit on everything else underneath.
“Our mission isn’t just to help people live longer – it’s to support them to live their best life for the longest”

Ailsa aka The Glue
Ailsa joined the team after working for three years in the NHS. The combination of shift work and mass produced cafeteria lunches had left Ailsa feeling sluggish and lethargic so she turned to her lifelong friend Pip for advice and hasn’t looked back.
Ailsa loved the DayOne Wellness ethos so much that now, Mum of one, Ailsa has joined the team so she can support others to feel as good as she does now.
You’ll find Ailsa at DayOne Wellness HQ or virtually tucked away in the Welsh countryside, organising events, supporting our clients progress and co-creating our weekly blogs.
I can’t sing your praises highly enough. I’ve never stuck at anything for this long, it’s not just the changes I’ve made that’s surprised me, it’s how easy I found making the changes once I understood the impact they had on my body!Ann, 2014 client
I can’t thank DayOne Wellness enough for what they have done and for also making it enjoyable and fun at the same time. I had wanted to change my lifestyle for a while since having to give up football but needed some inspiration and guidance which I was struggling to find. Fortunately, Pip did some workshops at our office and I knew straight away that I had found someone I could trust and who could inspire me to make the changes I needed. I have further goals to reach this year but with the support and advice from the DayOne Wellness Community I finally feel they are achievable.Marc, 2015 client
