WHAT WE DO
Meet Co-Founders Pip & Tom
We launched DayOne Wellness in October 2014 with one mission: To make sustainable health and wellbeing simpler so everyone can live their best life. Health is the only thing we can all put to the top of our priority lists and it have a positive benefit on everything else underneath – but Western society has made it so incredibly complicated! As a couple we’ve travelled to some of the poorest and most remote parts of the world, where ironically the majority of the people we met were healthier and happier! It’s here that we developed our simple rules for a healthy life;
1. Eat Real Food. 2. Move Outside Daily. 3. Support Others.
Our services are a holistic, no nonsense view on overall wellbeing, our foundational programmes have addressed; chronic diseases, weight gain, fatigue, mental health problems and generic illnesses. Our pro-active approach to health and wellbeing doesn’t just help people live longer – it educates them on how to live their best life for the longest.
The more people we coach, the more apparent it has become to us – that every-body is designed for optimal health, just sometimes our modern day lifestyles and environments make it impossible for the body to do what it does best – naturally heal itself.
“Optimal health isn’t just living in the absence of disease, it’s a complete state of mental, physical and emotional well-being that’s responsible for enhancing every area of your life”
We believe health is a spectrum, on one end is lifestyle diseases and on the other end is your best life. Our foundational programmes aren’t magic bullets, they simply help people change the direction and speed they are heading on the spectrum. So when’s your DayOne to your best life?
We offer foundation programmes individually, in groups, in corporate settings and online addressing each of the areas below.
1. Mindset 2. Nutrition 3. Movement 4. Sleep 5. Stress Resilience 6. Sustainability.
Meet the Team
Pip aka The Renegade
Pip qualified as a personal trainer in 2008 where she specialised in exercise referral, obesity and diabetes management, unfortunately she didn’t feel the information she was taught was actually helping people achieve sustainable results.
Frustrated with flawed teachings Pip sold a successful women’s bootcamp company at the age of 22 to travel with Tom. Once back in the UK Pip went on to deliver both adult and child weight management programmes for public health contracts where she also discovered the teachings of functional medicine.
Now, her cumulative experience – combined with her strong sense of justice and the odd tendency to not follow the social norm has lead her to develop the DayOne Wellness methodology. You’ll mainly find Pip coordinating and delivering our corporate health days and initiative as well as speaking at industry events on how to leverage physical health and mental fitness to achieve maximum potential.
Tom aka The Prankster
Tom’s passion for life is infectious. Aged 18 he left home for Australia, where he discovered the benefits of strength training combined with outdoor fitness. After a year down under he chased his love for the outdoors to work at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada before returning home to pursue a career in the health and fitness industry.
Now he has a wealth of industry experience from numerous countries and is passionate to teach busy people how to get the most out of their bodies while still enjoying their lives.
Tom’s a qualified personal trainer with a keen interest in physical performance, strength and conditioning and outdoor expedition training. You’ll mainly find Tom at DayOne HQ as he is head of branding and facilities.
Louise aka The Mummy
Louise, is a mum of three boys and is passionate about helping other busy mums prioritise their health without feeling guilty or letting other areas of their lives slip.
Louise says; “Just like millions of other mums I used to feel bad about having time away from my kids, but spending time on my myself means I’m able to be an even better mum because I have so much more energy to juggle the daily demands”
Louise specialises in our signature 1:1 coaching programme as well as running our 6 week fitness courses. You can’t help but feel motivated in her presence and her caring nature means you’ll always feel supported every step of the way!
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 sign 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
