For our 19th episode we are excited to introduce our latest venture – Swifty Fitness! Jason and Camilla discuss everything to do with this new area we’re developing into in this episode.
They talk through how the idea of making home fitness equipment first came about, and was enforced by the positive effects they both found from focusing on their own fitness during the first UK lockdown.
As we’re able to be more in control of the production line on everything we produce under Swifty Fitness our co-founders also lay out their aims to ensure all elements are sustainably sourced, plastic free and eco-friendly.
From the beginning idea to the first product in our range they also dissect some of the key details about our Swifty Balance Board! We look into the specific design choices that can be found on our board compared to others as well as the benefits of the exercise and how it can be used to help your scooting technique, proprioception, strength, balance and more!
