Hello, we are Wendy & Dan Hennessey. After over fourteen years in the wellness industry and twelve years as a couple, we have found what works best for us and many others is to simply follow what feels good for your mind, body, and soul.
Our goal here is to share information & insights from our own experiences and continued education to help you master your own wellness & self-care journey.
Wendy's Path to Health & Wellness
Wendy was born in Haiti and at the age of 5 moved to Newark, NJ with her family. Talk about challenges and overcoming them. Wendy is an expert not only at facing adversity but smashing through obstacles with grace, beauty, and a calm sense of undeniable strength only a woman can display.
Wendy has a passion for life that at her core is simply based on feeling good. Her earliest memories are filled with music, dancing, and celebrating life to the fullest. She continues to carry this passion with her everywhere she goes and you can feel it as soon as she walks in the room.
After completing her Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Masters in Health Administration, she quickly found her way into hospital managerial roles. Wendy helped to organize and optimize health care systems while increasing patient advocacy.
She was never satisfied, however, with all of the uphill battles in our current healthcare system and knew she could help people in a larger way. With only about 10% of healthcare funding going to preventative care and the remaining 90% going to treating illness and diseases after they happen, Wendy knew she would have the biggest impact by helping people lead a healthier lifestyle and thrive, avoiding diseases altogether.
Now she helps people around the globe realize an abundance of health not just by telling, but by living and showing. All of her platforms provide free resources, education, and practices that help thousands of people understand how to become their own personal health expert not just for themselves, but for their families and communities as well.
This is her dream of changing our healthcare system coming true.
Dan’s Path to Health & Wellness
Dan was born and raised in Edison, NJ and his journey started out with sports and performance. Dan fell in love with basketball at the early age of 7 and that would ultimately become the first building block of his career.
Basketball became Dan's vehicle for growth and understanding. He used his abilities on and off the court to build connections and follow his passions in the world at large. Not many kids decide to leave town as an 8th grader and start out at a new high school 30 minutes away from home, but Dan did. Early on he learned to trust his gut and go for things he knew to be his truth. After a highly successful high school career, Dan was recruited to play college basketball and this led him to embark on his education in exercise, nutrition, and behavioral psychology. It was his passion and belief in himself that led him to not only his current life’s work but also meeting and marrying the love of his life, Wendy.
After graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Physiology, Dan embarked on a 10-year journey training professional athletes, conducting programs for high school teams, building 2 different wellness companies, and working with thousands of everyday people looking to eat, move and live healthier lifestyles.
He received recognition from world leader Precision Nutrition Inc. for the life-changing holistic transformations his clients were getting beyond just weight loss. For Dan, it is all about empowering the people he has a chance to meet, so they can grow and live their lives to their fullest, at their own pace, and on their own terms.
Dan has poured all of his energy into becoming not only an educator, life coach, and nutritional expert, but also continues to be a student like all great leaders do. Now with nearly 15 years of experience under his belt, awards, and tons of real-world results, he’s more passionate than ever to see people happy, healthy, and smiling.
In 2016 we got engaged and started our wellness company, True4you Fitness. We named our start-up “True4You Fitness”, as a constant reminder that wellness is an individual journey based on a process of self-creation for what is true 4 you and to remember who you really are within.
Our mission was simply to improve the overall wellbeing of each person we had the opportunity to work with. We were able to build online programs from our educational background and decades of combined experience in healthcare, nutrition, exercise, and longevity practices.
A year later, we both quit our jobs to run our business fully online and set out to travel the world together. It was amazing and still is!
Working online gave us the freedom to explore other interests like travel, spiritual growth, photography, and video production.
With our travels, we've learned things about health and wellness that no classroom or work environment could ever teach. We lived in what is called a "Blue Zone" where people regularly live well into their 80's, 90's, and even enjoy 100 years of life!
We spent 3 glorious months living in the beautiful Blue Zone of Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica. Here we got to see, touch, taste, smell, and feel what healthy really means in its purest form. Costa Ricans say it best with their simple yet powerful countrywide mantra, "Pura Vida", which literally translates to "Pure Life"!
We couldn't say it any better ourselves.
Where Are We Now?
Now married, we live in sunny Southern California and continue to create informative, inspirational, and conscious creative content that reaches millions of people around the world on Instagram, Youtube, Television Media, and this website.
Rooted securely in where we came from, we love sharing our experiences and opening our hearts so that others may do the same and thrive as nature intended. We are extremely grateful for where our journey has taken us and we hope to continue to guide people in living a less stressed life that is overall happier and healthier.
Thank you for being here with us!
