Sports Science graduate Colin Simpson has launched a new business which aims to whip high-flying executives in to shape.
His idea for Elite Professional Performance (EPP) came after learning of worrying statistics showing high mortality rates among senior managers.
Supported by Edinburgh Napier's incubator space The Moffat Centre, EPP and its team of nutritionists, fitness trainers and business coaches, believe by improving the health of employees, they can improve their performance in the office.
Colin told us more about the business...

We chat to Rosie, one of the newest members of the Edinburgh Napier Badminton club who meet on Fridays, 7:30-9pm @ Sighthill Campus Sports Centre and is running for its fourth year this term. The team won the Scottish third division in 2011 and will be promoted to the second division. We also got to the semi-finals of the Scottish Conference Cup which was quite an achievement. Representatives from the Napier Badminton Club will also compete in the Scottish University Individual Championships.
The club accepts people of all levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced. All players will have the opportunity to try out for the new competetive team for 2012/13. This team will consist of four men and four ladies and will compete against other Scottish universities throughout the season.

A study led by Edinburgh Napier researchers has found a flagship government scheme aimed at improving the sexual health of young people had a 'limited impact'.
A team of researchers led by Professor Lawrie Elliot from the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social care, found that the 'Healthy Respect' programme had no impact on condom use.
There was also some evidence that the programme led to a greater tolerance of sexual coercion among girls.
Professor Elliot talks us through the findings ahead of his appearance at the Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee on Tuesday 26th February 2013.
