Whelan Wellness has created an opportunity for you to finally take hold of your wellness and live a healthier, happier life. 

Our approach, developed by Founder Gill Whelan, is all-encompassing - with equal importance placed on physical, mental, and emotional wellness. We’re here to break you out of food jail, show you that you can do hard things, and help you learn to love your body. 

The Whelan Wellness approach is based on a system of 4 pillars:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Hydration
  3. Movement
  4. Mindset

We believe that creating a balance between these 4 pillars will not only help you feel (physically and mentally) your best, but also make it possible for you to show up as the best version of yourself everyday.

Whelan Wellness strives to create a positive, welcoming, and supportive environment for all individuals. Our Virtual Bootcamp community is a safe space to build new habits and experience personal growth.

Our Brand

The Whelan Wellness logo, designed by Newfoundland and Labrador based artist Anne D. Artistry, is a representation of the 4 pillars system working in balance. Your life is an adventure, and one that we intend to help you fully embrace. What could be better to represent an adventure (especially with our Newfoundland and Labrador roots) than the great outdoors! 

Each element of our logo represents the 4 pillars, plus more:

  • Water: represents hydration, but also our connection to our home - Newfoundland and Labrador. 
  • Mountains: represent a contrast in geography, or the flexibility of participating in our programs despite location. It also represents the peaks and valleys and the challenges they bring - you can do hard things.
  • Sun: represents a shift in your mental health - send love and light into the universe and allow it to come back to you tenfold.
  • Tree roots: represents recognizing where you are planted (who you are, and your core values) and allowing yourself to constantly grow upward.
  • Leaf: represents wholesome nutrition based on mindful consumption.
  • Est. 2020: representing not just the year Whelan Wellness was established, but the year the world hit pause and presented us with the opportunity to reset, align, and grow.

Captured in a perfect circle and inspired by the compass rose, the Whelan Wellness logo represents our belief that a balance of these elements will lead to a big, bold, brave life, where you get to live as your best you, every single day.

Running Coach

Tanya Jones

I started coaching at a local gym around 6 years ago and upon their closure, I continued coaching various clinics with our founded group name Team Torrential. These clinics included: Learn to Run, 5K clinics, Half Marathon, Tely 10, and Cape to Cabot. I started running in 2009 and it has brought so many amazing inspiring people into my life. I am the runner I am today because of the amazing running community I am fortunate enough to have around me! Running has taken me places I would otherwise not have gone. I am every day grateful for the ability to run! I love helping others put one foot in front of the other, stepping out of comfort zones, and crushing their goals.

Business Support / Master of Encouragement

Peter Whelan

Living a life of wellness in accordance to my core values embodies everything I want to be as a man, a husband, a father, a business owner, etc. I'm here to make memories and have fun along the way. My goal is to fill my life, and my family's life with experiences and moments, and live the best life we can live.

The Home Team

Whelan Brothers

Every founder has their “why” - and for Gill, this crew is a big part of her why. Meet Pete, Hunter, and Max. Each and every day, Gill strives to show her boys that if you set your mind to something and have true passion for your work, you can create or be anything.

Tea Time Mascot

Zoe Whelan

If you have been to a Whelan Wellness tea time, we've likely already met. If you haven't, what are you waiting for! I'm always around for a tea time session - hence why I'm the mascot. Before you ask - I am a Pug Tzu (Pug and Shih Tzu), and I am the cutest member of the Whelan Family (sorry Max).

Official Photographer and unofficial helper with all the things.

Sarah Nolan

Arts are my thing. I am a creator at heart, and throughout my life art has manifested in many forms- hairstyling, photography, acrylic painting, watercolour, crafting, making music, even podcasting. But my camera is something that has been with me for a really long time (I spent a lot of money developing film throughout my late teens and early twenties)! In recent years, I rekindled this passion, relearning photography in a digital world. I experienced a life changing photography trip to Costa Rica in 2019 where I adventured and learned with a couple of incredible mentors and I have been very passionate about it ever since. Working with Gill and bringing her passion to life in the form of photographs is something that I am really proud of.
