Healthspan Heroes

We recognise that people make strides no matter how big or small to improve their wellbeing. Some champion our products alone for helping them reach their health goals, others take more daring measures like skydiving at 72 years old - yes, really! Every step towards wellness is an amazing achievement and we want to celebrate your success.

Meet the heroes

They might call themselves ordinary, we call them extraordinary. Meet our customers who love getting out into the elements to keep their health in ship shape.

Lorenzo
NutriCoach Marketing Manager

Our very own speedy man completed the London Marathon in May this year, raising over £2000 for Action on Hearing Loss.

"All of my training for this event had been in cold/wet weather gear and for this year's London Marathon to be the hottest on record that required some adaptation! But the crowd and atmosphere pulled me through. Pubs and restaurants were giving out additional water to ensure we all stayed hydrated. A great day, I'd recommend it to any budding runners!"

Becki
Product Marketing Executive

This pocket rocket completed 4 huge challenges over 4 weekends including a half marathon & a 48 mile island walk around Jersey.

"I really wanted to run my first half marathon this summer and coincidentally the island walks which I love doing every year fell in the same month. The half marathon was definitely the biggest challenge. My legs were so SO tired from the weekends before and I had a really low point at mile 8, but I had the biggest sense of achievement when I finished!"

Mike
Online Graphic Designer

The dark horse of the office; Mike embarked on the Saffery Rotary 39 mile Guernsey coastal walk and came in the top 20 finishers!

"I had been taking Flexi-6 Gold for about 3 months before taking on this challenge, and I have to say that I did really feel the benefits on the day with no aches and pains after finishing. The highlight of the day was watching the sun rise over Herm island and spotting a seal fishing in the sea; it was absolutely spectacular and will live with me for a very long time!"
