Discover the Journey That Led Me to Become a Passionate Health Coach and Advocate for Proactive Wellness

Hello, I’m Tony Winyard, with a diverse background and a passion for helping others, I’m dedicated to guiding individuals like you on a transformative journey towards optimal health and vitality.

My Journey:

My path to becoming a health coach was shaped by personal experiences and a deep desire to help others avoid the health struggles I witnessed in my own family. As a child, I battled with asthma, and the conventional treatment of relying solely on inhalers left me seeking alternative solutions. It wasn’t until 2016 that I discovered the power of the Buteyko breathing method, which transformed my approach to managing not only my asthma but also my hay fever.

In 2012, my world was shaken when my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and my uncle passed away from prostate cancer within days. This devastating experience fuelled my determination to understand the root causes of chronic diseases and explore proactive ways to optimise health.

I immersed myself in extensive research, reading over 400 books on topics ranging from nutrition and genetics to sleep, stress, and the microbiome.

Through my studies, I discovered the fascinating field of epigenetics and realised that we have more control over our health than I previously believed.

This knowledge, coupled with the heartbreak of watching my mother suffer through chemotherapy without exploring lifestyle changes, ignited my passion for helping others take a proactive approach to their well-being.

My Approach: Drawing from my diverse qualifications, including certifications from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, HeartMath Institute, and Tiny Habits organisation, I employ a personalised, holistic approach to health coaching.

By incorporating the latest scientific research on longevity and the wisdom gained from my 10-year experience living in the Far East, I guide my clients in optimising their sleep, nutrition, exercise, stress management, and emotional health.

Central to my philosophy is the power of self-experimentation and the importance of maintaining a strong relationship with one’s body, mind, and future self. I encourage my clients to actively engage in a continuous process of observing their body’s responses to various stimuli and making proactive choices that align with their long-term health goals.

Through my coaching, workshops, and the weekly podcast “Drop A Decade,” I aim to correct common misconceptions about nutrition and breathing while addressing significant barriers to good health, such as ultra-processed food, lack of sleep, and chronic stress.

Beyond Coaching:

My commitment to helping others extends beyond my role as a health coach. I have a strong background in public speaking, having worked as a radio presenter and international club DJ, interviewing numerous A-list celebrities. I have also demonstrated a dedication to charitable causes, raising over £50,000 through cycling across various countries and participating in marathons.

In my free time, you can find me engaging in sports, spending quality time with my daughter, and staying updated on the latest developments in AI, health, philosophy, and psychology.

My Mission:

As I navigate my own journey through life, I am increasingly aware of the importance of focusing on health and habits, especially in our later years. My mission is to empower individuals to take control of their well-being, optimize their health span, and enjoy life to the fullest through healthy living and proactive choices.

Guided by the principles of stoicism, positive psychology, and motivational interviewing, I am dedicated to helping you discover the transformative power of embracing the wisdom of your body and making choices that align with your highest self.

If you’re ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, optimise your health, and experience the joys of a life well-lived, I invite you to join me. Together, we’ll create a roadmap to your best self and unlock the secrets to lasting vitality.

HeartMath Certified Coach

Helping clients to transform their stress, boost their resilience and perform to their highest potential, to live their life with more heart, health and happiness.

HeartMath is a system of simple and powerful self-regulation techniques which are easy to learn and designed to be used “in the moment”, whatever the situation, meaning that you can bring your best self to your professional, social and personal lives.

And what makes HeartMath unique is that you can practise the techniques using the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Coherence biofeedback app and sensor. Coherence Biofeedback gives you real-time insight into your emotional, mental and physical state. This increases your self-awareness and helps you to develop the ability to self-regulate emotions, thoughts and behaviours.

I believe that your habits create your health. If you think you can’t change your habits, maybe it’s because you’ve been given the wrong advice? With a proven process and support, anybody has the power to change their habits and create a healthier life.
