Patrick and Talilla Henchoz: Meet the Father-Daughter Duo at the Forefront of an Evolving Fitness Industry.
On this week's episode of the Escape Your Limits podcast, we meet Patrick and Talilla Henchoz.
This father-daughter duo have decades' worth of experience when it comes to navigating the world of workouts. Patrick is the founder of Esporta Health and Fitness Clubs, which grew to 38 clubs with over 200,000 members before he sold the chain in the '90s.
Talilla is a personal trainer and social media influencer who founded Club V, an all-inclusive virtual fitness service. Club V was built on the five pillars of health to merge fitness and wellness: body, mind, nutrition, sustainability, and—you guessed it—community. And since there are so many opportunities to participate virtually, thousands of people from around the globe are discovering Club V.
Together, Patrick and Talilla are at the forefront of an ever-evolving industry—never forgetting that the most important person in the room is the customer.
In 2021, the concepts of fitness, wellness, and tech will continue to merge.
