Viavi:be is the brain child of Dr Sabine Donnai, one of Harley Street’s leading medical practitioners in proactive health management and precision medicine. Viavi:be’s pioneering new Health-Gym in Summertown is the outcome of many years work helping clients develop a proactive and sustainable approach to their health in a realistic, time-efficient manner that encourages them to Live Life. Well.
Unfortunately, the need for such a Viavi:be service has never been greater - with 40% of 40-60 year olds doing virtually no exercise and 1 in six deaths in England attributable to inactivity. According to a recent BBC documentary, as many as two-thirds of us have a health-age which is higher than our actual birth age.
Our approach is summarised as Live Life. Well. We believe life is for living well. And that health is a key factor in this. We understand it can be difficult to know exactly what to do to stay healthy and exercised, so we have combined the latest thinking and measurements in proactive medical science, with the world's leading wellness technology with highly trained supportive health experts to create the worlds first Health-Gym - Viavi:be.
