Why The Outside View chose CHHP for an interesting experiment

Here, nearly every aspect of the employees fitness was put to the test

For 3 months the employees at Data Analytics Startup The Outside View tracked every aspect of their lives, with the aim to improve their Health, Wealth and Happiness.

The idea behind the Health, Wealth and Happiness experiment was to apply science to the self through the use of technology. For the duration of the experiment, a whole range of data was acquired from the subjects; from their mood throughout the day, to their quality of sleep, to their performance at work. Finally the data was analysed so the subjects could see where to make improvements in their daily lives.


The CHHP Performance Team offered state-of-the-art equipment to allow detailed analysis of every aspect of performance from lung function to movement mechanics. Combined with their expertise, they provided the most comprehensive assessment of performance helping the employees at The Outside View achieve their goals faster.

Exercise Plan

The exercise plan consisted of a three day routine. Monday included 8-12 reps of barbell rows at 60% of maximum weight followed by 8-12 reps of pull ups. This was followed by 10 minutes of personal cardio activity. Wednesday consisted of 8-12 reps of push ups and 8-12 reps of bench press at 60% maximum weight, again followed by 10 minutes of cardio. This was followed by 8-12 reps on the leg press on Friday.

Diet Plan

The meal plan was seperated into two groups for those who wanted to lose weight and for those who wanted to gain muscle. A food matrix was made of suitable foods, including Proteins: chicken, fish, beef lamb, eggs and pulses; Fats: avacados, nuts, olives, coconut oil and full fat yogurt; Fibres: fibrous vegetables and Carbs: Sweet potato, white rice, oats and fruit.

The subjects went to the Centre for Health and Human Performance on Harley Street to undergo various testing to establish their baseline level of health and fitness. This included a measure of their body composition.
