biofit calgary: An organic gym concept for big city life that harnesses the proven health benefits of biophilic, nature-inspired design and real world fitness training.
A research study by the UKActive Research Institute in January 2017 at the biofit showroom in London (UK) analysed the benefits of this unique form of ‘indoor green exercise’; the results showed a reduction in client stress levels, improved mood and an added sense of natural vitality.
Designers from London’s Lily Jencks Studio have incorporated over 300 air purifying plants into the low-tech, first floor training area in Marda Loop that features circadian rhythym lighting, natural aromatherapy, non-toxic paint, abundant natural light, upcycled wood and acoustic music playlists.
Training equipment is all made of wood, leather, cotton or rope, including a bespoke wooden pullup bar with finger grips, handmade calf leather punching bag and sustainable wood WaterRower. Small group classes and personal training in Movement & Mobility, Strength & Stamina and Play & Fight techniques combine skill, mindfulness and real world scenarios. When taken as one multisensory experience, clients leave physically and mentally fitter for the great outdoors.
