About me

Dear Fitness Backpackers,

The reason why you have visited this website is that you are probably interested in staying (or getting) fit while travelling. Fitness Backpacker on top of a vulcanoWe have some common ground here. From a young age I was always interested in practising sport. However, it wasn’t until I enrolled at the local fitness club that I have started to change my lifestyle. Since that enrolment, there was not one day in my life in which I felt sick! I began to be more conscious about the food that we are eating and the stressors that have a negative impact on our life quality. For example, a good night sleep is as important as good nutrition. I firmly believe that nourishing your body with good nutrition and exercise will lead to an healthy body and mind. Consequently, feeling good and healthy is a good foundation for a successful life in work and school. Throughout my life I have inspired many people in changing their life in various subjects. This website is my portal to the world in which I try to inspire others to stay fit while travelling the world!

After graduating from University I have decided to fulfil one of my lifelong dreams and explore the world. At the same time I had the will to work out now and then (if it was possible). Subsequently, I did some desk research and as a result I could not find many gyms in Asia. At that moment, I came with an idea: “Let’s structure the gyms that I visit in one awesome website, so that others will have more ease finding a gym. At the same time I can help the local gyms promoting themselves to a different audience, the backpacker”.  Not unimportant, I hope to provide people with more information than the gyms alone. I have always had the urge to do something back for the community and with this website I hope I can give something back to the world.

I sincerely hope that I can inspire many travellers with this website. My goal is to make it easier for you to find the gyms in Asia, as I know from experience that it can be troublesome. This will remove the searching constraint for you, and I hope many backpackers will be motivated to work-out while travelling.


Kind regards,
