Our Why


For too long, health and fitness prescription has come from men who think that women’s health can be optimised by doing the same things that men need to do. 

But, the truth is, no one can look after a woman’s health, quite as effectively as another woman. This is confirmed by science and experience, which recognises that a woman’s anatomy, physiology, hormones, and response to exercise, can be completely different to males’. 

It stands to reason, therefore, that in order for women to achieve and sustain optimum health and fitness, they need to be prescribed treatments and training methods that are, quite possibly, entirely differently to men. The challenge with this then becomes where to turn for inspiration and reliable sources of information. Because, as we all know, when it comes to health advice, there is so much information coming at us from so many different [often male-generated] sources, that it’s often difficult to know what or who to believe.

Enter: A Day For Women By Women.

This unique two-day Summit will nurture your need for truth. You’ll learn about health and fitness from women in the know, but it’s not like any other conference you’ll have attended before. Yes, the information you’ll receive will be steeped in science and evidence-based, but this Summit is designed to ensure that what you remember after the event, is not only the educational information that you’ll take home; but also the beautiful feelings you experienced while attending. 

Because this Summit is designed by women for women, you’ll sense the differences immediately. Without giving any details away, let’s just say, if you’ve ever wished you could attend an educational event that felt more like a retreat, then we’re here to tell you that dreams do come true! 

The Women In The Know

We recognise that today’s modern woman often feels overlooked, overworked, undervalued and underpaid, so the goal of this event is to introduce you to women in the know who will reinvigorate your passion, reenergise your soul, inspire you to prioritise yourself, and give you the tools to actually make the changes you need to live healither, ever after.

Yes, we have a stunning venue with feminine elements that you won’t receive at any other educational event, but even more special are the people who we’ve chosen to share their evidence-based information with you. We have hand-selected every single presenter after having identified their powerful, unique or practical message that can help you create and adopt a healthier, fitter and more enjoyable lifestyle. 

So let’s meet these Women In The Know…
