HOW WE FOUND OUR NEST
Our Kiwi founder Shani van den Borst relocated back to the UK after a brief stint down under & decided if she was going to live back in London she'd have to keep connected with nature. It all started with a little post on a Facebook mum's forum to see if any mamas were keen to "get moving in the park" with Shani.
You chose the park & the time. We showed up for a somewhat poorly-organised but overly-excited 'bootcamp' of bodyweight exercises. We marched around the park, buggies in tow, stopping to sweat on park benches. You were so welcoming & friendly. We decided to keep moving together & called ourselves Fitbirds.
As time went on, we continued to sweat & laugh together. A specialised & more considered class format started to evolve, we began to create a community...
WE FLY AWAY TOGETHER
We flew to Portugal together for our first ever retreat. As a group of 17 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 from Thursday through Monday, it felt like a proper migration where time had completely slowed down. There is nothing quite like your 'first', but the following retreats came pretty close. To this day, our retreats are our fave date in the calendar!
THE PANDEMIC MAKES US STRONGER
From March 2020 to March 2021 we connected mostly through the little squares on the screen. Within these 12 long months of life in a global pandemic, our Fitbirds community grew from strength to strength. We collectively realised the real power of connecting through fitness & wellness. We reunite as COVID-19 restrictions ease to our share experiences, tears, lols & our sweat.
Shani & Charlie officially became each others wing birds, a match made in heaven.
We cannot wait to share the joys of flying with Fitbirds with you.
