We are not rocket scientists. We are actually fairly "normal" - but where we excel is in our shared passion and drive for improving people's confidence and happiness.
What we believe
We at Fitsmind believe that looking after your mind is just as important as taking care of your body. The two go hand in hand, because what the mind believes, the body can achieve. We've made it our mission to improve people's self confidence and belief in themselves all around the world by combining meditation with exercise, known as MAP (mental and physical) training. When the simple activity of starting and ending your workouts with meditation is considered no more strange than washing the dishes after eating, we'll have achieved our goal.

Made in Norway
Norwegians have always been natural explorers by heart.
Fridtjof Nansen, Liv Arnesen, Thor Heyerdahl - just some of few Norwegians that paved the way for a nation of people to believe in themselves and showed them the power of having a vision in life.
There are few places left in the world that encompasses such natural beauty as Norway does, with its endless fjords and steep hillsides, the midnight sun and not least the stunning northern lights.
The gentle falling of the snowflakes from a starry sky, and the light breeze between the trees in the forest can be considered a meditative process for Norwegians, and we at Fitsmind want to use this knowledge to break down the barriers and misconceptions that meditation and visualisation has got in certain places in the world. For it to be understood, that meditation is all around us when we manage to quiet the mind and focus on the present.
Fitsmind of Norway, are built on the principle that adventure lies within, and that true happiness can be found in all of us - if we just search for it. And that's why we are proud to have worked closely with Norwegians over the last years, to be able to deliver a service that the happiest people in the world can truly stand behind.
