Name: Charlotte Cox
Profession: Founder of FLY LDN
Her Story: After 7 years as a City lawyer and using exercise as a way to keep a manageable work-life balance, FLY LDN’s founder, Charlotte Cox, took a leap of faith and set up her own immersive yoga and fitness studio. Fully immersed in her daily working grind, Charlotte often found it difficult to switch off and cut out work-related issues. She turned to regular HIIT workouts and sweaty spin classes as a way to shut off and release the stress of her working day. Charlotte found that exercise left her able to think more clearly, work more efficiently and most importantly, she felt more positive and confident in herself. This led her to re-think the way in which she trained and was the driving force behind the conception of FLY LDN, which shifted her fitness journey towards a more holistic, low-impact way of training. Charlotte threw in the corporate towel and FLY LDN was born in May 2018.

An innate understanding of the far-reaching role of exercise led to the eventual launch of The Fore in July 2019.

Profession: Founder of Bare Biology
Her Story: Melanie Lawson started her love affair with Omega 3 in 2008 when she suffered from postnatal depression. A passionate believer in health through nutrition, she intensively researched ways to improve her mental health through diet and lifestyle. Her research found that Omega 3 is one of the most critical nutrients for mental health, as well as general health. Melanie was struggling to find an Omega 3 in the UK that ticked all the boxes of purity, strength and freshness. Like many entrepreneurs, she saw a gap in the market and decided to create her own brand and launched Bare Biology in 2013. Melanie knew she had done something right when her first stockist was Liberty after taking part in their Best of British Open Call.
