Telomere provides strategic insights and advisory services to clients in the fitness and wellness industry.  We want to help you treat your business the way you would treat your body – making the right choices now to optimize its potential for a long and healthy life. Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes, like the plastic tips at the end of a shoelace. The length of telomeres are controlled by the presence of the enzyme telomerase – this is the enzyme we want to help you cultivate, to keep your business growing and multiplying in one of the world's largest and fastest growing industries.
