Absolutely amazing team, very supportive and knowledgable about a wide variety of approaches to exercise. Did my first university placement with Tailored Heath and could not be more grateful for the exposure to the industry and the introduction to what working is after graduation. Thank you so much for taking the time and the effort to teach and mentor.

I have been an employee at Tailored Health for a few months now and I have absolutely fallen in love with the culture and values of this place! As someone who has worked in a number of businesses in this industry, I truly believe Tailored Health runs one of the most hospitable and well informed service's for helping people look after their health and get back to living life on their own terms.

I went to Tailored Health as part of an overall desire to improve my golf. I can honestly say a few sessions with Yas and the team has been far more beneficial to me than hitting hundreds of balls at the range. The benefits of increased mobility and strength applied to the golf swing are a must for anyone looking to improve their game. I have definitely noticed a huge improvement in ball striking after a few sessions and a program of exercises to follow. The team is friendly and supportive - I highly recommend them.
