FAQs

How will Simba help me?


Simba combines health coaching, data and breaking longevity research to transform the way you age.

Currently, the average person spends the last 18 years of their life in poor health. Most of this decline is often seen as an ‘inevitable’ or ‘genetic’ consequence of ageing. However, various studies suggest that 80% of how you age is determined by lifestyle choices made in the 99% of your life when you’re often lacking expert advice and support.

Simba gives you that personalised support wherever and whenever you need it. You are paired with your own expert health coach who identifies the changes you can make to improve your health, and gives you the knowledge, tools and motivation to attain these health goals.

Does Simba work?

Simba works. 75% of users reported positive health outcomes such as decrease in weight, and improvements in mood, quality of life and chronic issues such as back pain, and fatigue.

There’s also extensive research - including by the NHS - to show that pro-active health coaching is effective in creating short-term and long-term health benefits: here, here and here.

How do I work with my coach on Simba?

You will schedule a 30-minute kickoff call via Zoom with your health coach so that you can get to know each other, and discuss your preferences and goals.

Based on your first health goal, your coach then builds a new 12-week personalised health plan for you. You are supported through your plan by your coach. They will check-in on your progress, and respond in real-time if you need adjustments to your plan, or have any questions.

Every 12-weeks, you’ll get a new health plan, so that you can keep progressing through your health goals one at a time!


How can I track my progress?

You can track activity that impacts your health (like sleep, steps, exercise etc) on the app either manually or automatically by connecting with any existing wearables. Your coach will also check-in with you regularly to see how you are progressing on your plan.

Can I use Simba with an existing health condition?

Yes. Personalised isn’t just a buzzword for us - your coach builds your plan from scratch, and makes sure it accommodates your ability, existing health conditions and preferences. If you have a health condition or injury, please disclose this in your health survey. Otherwise, you can also raise it in your kickoff call with your coach so they can discuss it with you.

How does the 30-day trial work?
