Julian Hearn Founder

Julian Hearn is an internet entrepreneur, marketer and dad from Aylesbury, England. He graduated from Bournemouth University with a BA (Hons) in 1996 and then went on to work in online marketing for 11 years for the likes of, Starbucks and Waitrose. He started his first internet business in 2008 with an initial £1,500 investment, and, within 18 months, attracted over one million monthly visits and successfully sold the business within three years.

Always passionate about sport and fitness, Julian’s next startup was Bodyhack, a health and fitness website. He acted as a human guinea pig for Bodyhack, obeyed a strict diet plan and exercised no more than three hours/week for three months. This experience proved that fitness was 80% diet and 20% exercise. But he found eating healthily took up a lot of time and felt guilty about all the animal protein he was consuming, so he looked for a better way...
