Whether your peddling, punching, running, or lifting, we believe the key to living fit is movement consistency and sweating everyday. Keeping things new and exciting is half the battle and brings a whole new set of health returns. New activity experiences not only give you an array of health rewards, but also a chance to learn new athletic skills, try new fitness trends, and take advantage of Vancouver’s hot bed of health boutiques. 

Just like anything, there is no single fitness activity that is the “holy grail”. Sticking to the same exercise, repetitive movement patterns, and same piece of equipment can not only be un-motivating but your also missing out on the health benefits of other forms of exercise. Fitz gives you exactly that – full access to over 85 gyms and over 500 activities whenever you want! We’re all about “fitness freedom” and keeping local organizations and their valued employees happy and fit!

Is your company looking for a unique way to introduce health and fitness amongst your employees? We’d love to show you more about Fitz by booking a demo with one of our founders Francis dos Santos. 

Stay Active & keep sweating!
