About Us

CorLife’s management team is comprised of leaders at the vanguard of scientific breakthroughs in medicine, research, nutrition and big data – in the lab and on the front line.

The core of the team came together first in 2006 with launch of the successful CorPerformance platform. CorPerformance took participants entrenched in poor habits to a new place of healthy, sustainable lifestyle norms.

As a behavioural change proposition, CorPerformance was independently verified as producing a £1.49 return for every £1 spent (excluding productivity measures) and £5 for every £1 spent when productivity was included.

Lecturers, leaders, pioneers – international reputations and decades of experience follow CorLife’s clinicians, scientists, technologists, and marketers.
