The SNPitty Story
Tony and Landon have spent their careers working in biotech and healthcare. They both had successful exits from previous businesses, but have both seen how the relentless pace and the stress of those businesses could take a toll on their personal health and wellness.
While working as a scientific consultant, Tony recruited the scientific advisory board for a company selling heart healthy cooking oil, delved deeply into the primary literature and surrounded himself with world experts on this topic. He learned so much about healthy and unhealthy fats that he took action in his own life. He finally felt he had the tools and the understanding to change some habits – he lost 40 pounds, reversed the progress of his metabolic syndrome and dramatically improved his blood lipid profile.
Landon was on an independent, but similar journey – after years of running a 24/7/365 healthcare services company, she was overweight, tired and stressed. She really didn’t want to wind up like the frail, elderly and homebound patients she dealt with every day. She tried making changes on her own but couldn’t make progress. She eventually found some incredible coaches and learned new ways of eating, exercising and being more mindful. She lost over 35 lbs and has kept it off for several years.She has a passion for finding ways of making healthy eating and exercise a priority despite a non-stop life. She has also learned a lot about her own complex behavioral psychology around food and fitness, and wanted to work with people who would bake that in to her next venture.
