 Meet the

At Zest4life, we are passionate about making a real, measurable difference to your business success

We have been supporting and inspiring nutrition professionals just like you since 2007. Hundreds of practitioners have followed our simple yet highly effective step-by-step formula to build their own successful practices.

The key to choosing a business mentor is that you are guided by people with a proven track record and with knowledge of the field that you work in so that they can truly understand your challenges and offer tailored solutions and advice.


We have a team of over 12 nutrition business mentors at Zest, based in the UK, Europe and South Africa, who have all built successful nutrition practices themselves, and who openly share how they did it. With their different experiences and specialisms they have a wealth of nutrition business knowledge to help you move your business forward in a way that is true to you and how you want to work.

Nutrition professionals who work with us have access to the full team via regular live events, trainings, drop-in clinics and group coaching sessions - with two tiers of events depending on whether you are recently graduated or new to practice, or an experienced practitioner looking to take your business to the next level.

Not only that, but if you are on a one-to-one mentoring programme you are matched with the best fit mentor for the type of practice you want to develop. No other training or mentoring programme offers this level of highly personalised support, making us the number one choice for nutrition professionals wanting to run a successful and fulfilling practice.
