We will be taking this model and applying it to our clients and users of the hero platform as well as working with the Colour-Fit team to grow and further develop the programme.”
Hero plans to develop the Colour-Fit offer and use of technology to increase awareness and access to its service.
Colour-Fit’s founder Dr Tom Little remains as MD of Colour-Fit and also becomes Head of Performance & Nutrition across both Colour-Fit and hero.
