Dr Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan
Inject some adrenalin into your life.
The Byron at Byron is thrilled to present extreme health experts Dr. Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan for a night of mind-blowing inspiration.
This husband and wife team has set three World Records in extreme sport, including the world’s highest BASEjump in a wingsuit over the Himalayas. The achievement is made even more remarkable by the fact that Heather was a corporate executive who was afraid of heights. Over six years she trained with Glenn to become physically fit, mentally focused and emotionally tough enough to climb a Himalayan mountain and fly off the top.
“Heather’s transformation was inspirational,” said Glenn. “She had never planned to climb anything higher than the corporate ladder but by overcoming her fears she attained much more than she ever imagined possible”.
By changing her diet and exercise regime she changed her body fat content and became physically strong. Through techniques like meditation and visualization she overcame her fears and by joining Glenn on a ‘Vision Quest’ their relationship “was deepened and enriched beyond measure”.
Accompanied by spectacular photos and videos, Heather and Glenn will share their story and their process at the Byron at Byron.

He has twice been named as one of the ‘Top 5 Presenters in Australia’ and is a popular media commentator on extreme sport, fear and managing risk.
