Why fitcentiv

Intro

I grew up in the 90’s. Back then, the effort from the advertisers was about why you should care about your physical condition. Now it’s going without saying. The focus now, among the fitness providers, is how they are better from their competition. That being said, we are about to discuss how our fitness proposition is different from any other in Geneva.

The idea about physical exercise

Everybody is aware of the benefits of exercise. But to be fair, at least in Geneva and in Switzerland, people care about their physical condition. But that was not always the case. Let’s take a brief dive into fitness history.
fitness_historyIn ancient Greece first Olympic games were organized. Furthermore the spirit of sport competition and the birth of fair play were first established. However the 20th century things changed. Somewhere after the industrial revolution the modern and rich bourgeois thought that anything related to physical exercise is bad. As a matter of fact they would try to disparate themselves from people who did manual work. These stereotypes, often ignored, still live inside of us.

 

Even though that every one of us, knows what it takes to succeed, many fail to meet their fitness objectives.
