Tara Wood: Founder of Wild Fitness
Tara was brought up in Kenya where her family is from. She studied Biological Sciences at Oxford University before founding Wildfitness in 2000 at the age of 21.
Wildfitness began operating in Watamu, Kenya and since then has expanded to operate in Crete, Spain, The Isle of Wight and London. Tara continues to develop the Wildfitness courses and philosophy.
Tara practices many different ‘Wild sports’ including kite-surfing, surfing, free diving, parkour and rock climbing. Her love is developing her ‘human potential’ and the potential of her clients and staff. Tara looks to nature and our evolutionary origins to gain insight into how we should eat, move and live to get the most out of life. However, she believes that developing our own awareness and doing the things that make us feel challenged and alive are most important of all.
Tara’s underlying intent for Wildfitness is to make sure that all stake holders (clients, staff, shareholders and the environment) are all well served by the business.
Tara has worked with the leading thinkers in natural and evolutionary fitness including Frank Forencich, Nicholas Romanov, Lee Saxby and Erwan Le Corre to develop the courses.
Tara delivers a 4 day Wildfitness Coaches’ training event once or twice a year in UK and also speaks at corporate and fitness events. She is based between Kenya and London and is currently authoring the Wildfitness book.
