ABOUT US

WE ARE A FLOCK OF FEMALE 
FITNESS & WELLNESS SPECIALISTS

& WE ARE DEDICATED TO SUPPORTING YOU COMPLETELY

HOW WE FOUND OUR NEST

OCTOBER 2015

After a decade of traveling around the world, our Kiwi founder Shani Yeend settled in London. It all started with a post on a Facebook forum to see if any birds were keen to "get moving in the park" with Shani. 

You chose the park & the time. We showed up for a circuit-style
 'bootcamp' using our body-weight or park benches, Shani bringing her infamous energy & community gathering vibes. We quickly realised the birds of South East London are a hard working & friendly flock.

Fitbirds started to grow its wings.

 

As we continued to sweat & lol together, a specialist class formula evolved. The most exciting this that happened, we began to create a community.
 

WE FLY AWAY TOGETHER

SEPTEMBER 2018

 

We flew to Portugal together for our first ever retreat. As a group of 21 birds, we shared taxis & boarded flights together with a real anticipation of knowing something magical was about to happen. We united as one super flock, supported each other for 5 days, time slowed down. We shed unwanted feathers & grew new ones. To this day, our retreats are our fave date in the calendar.

 

THE PANDEMIC MAKES US STRONGER

MAY 2021

 In March 2020 for 12 months we connected mostly through the little squares on the screen. Within these 12 intense, life changing months of a global pandemic, our Fitbirds community grew from strength to strength. We collectively realised the power of connecting, specifically through fitness & wellness. As an outdoors business we were allowed to train as a small flock of 5 birds, 2 metres apart, any equipment sanitised before & after use. No physical contact. What a strange time. We were never more grateful.

 

During the summer we were allowed to migrate in larger groups outside, our Fit & Well Birds Challenge found its purpose: bringing birds together to connect, community more than ever needed. Our Fit & Well Birds laid the foundations to reunite to our share experiences of COVID-19, through tears, lols & sweat.
 

Shani gave birth to not one, but two babies during the pandemic, Minnie & Rocky arrived into the world.

 

Shani & Charlie officially became each others wing birds, a match made in heaven. 
 

2022 WE REFINE OUR POSTNATAL REHABILITATION 

By 2022 Fitbirds have trained & rehabilitated more than 2000 birds through classes & personal training. We launched The Core Method: using science based, natural physiological processes of our body to rehabilitate the deep core unit, inclusive of the pelvic floor. We are driven to push the boundaries of how we move, breath & connect (& reconnect) within our body, mind & soul. It's all interconnected birds & we are here to show you how.

 

We cannot wait to share the joys of flying with Fitbirds with you.
