creating a better life by improving health and fitness in a stylish way
This is how the American professor of psychology Csikszentmihalyi describes the ‘Flow’ feeling. A description that led to the name Flow Fitness. The quote represents the feeling that arises when you become one with your activity. The perfect harmony between effort and relaxation will make your workout pass by easily. Flow Fitness strives to develop fitness
products that help achieve this feeling and gives you a positive contribution to the quality of life.
The Flow Fitness products are developed by our team of Dutch top designers. They apply the distinctive Dutch Design characteristics to our products and are inspired by the feedback from consumers and dealers. This results in a technically advanced and wide-ranging assortment of the highest quality that keeps up with the latest trends.
Personal contact and advice lie at the heart of Flow Fitness. Questions and complaints about our products are instantly and professionally resolved by our customer service department. When you contact us by phone we will make sure you swiftly get to speak to the correct person. Questions or concerns conveyed via e-mail or social media will also be handled immediately.
Are you aiming to improve your endurance, strengthen your muscles or train for a specific event? You can rely on the products by Flow Fitness. We guarantee top quality and will do everything we can to achieve your goal with you. Flow Fitness persistently tests all fitness equipment for quality, safety, durability and usability. Moreover, all our products comply with the current European environmental and quality requirements, among others ROHS (environmental certification), NEN-Norm 957 and CE marking.
To us it’s not just about profit and growth. In addition to our drive to get everyone to exercise and make them feel better, there is also an intrinsic need to do something for society. That’s why we regularly donate fitness equipment to institutions for people with a mental disorder. Due to limited budgets, these institutions often have no means for sporting goods for the residents. We provide the right equipment and guidance so they can exercise and have fun again.
Behind Flow Fitness is a group of driven and sporty team players who work hard every day to deliver the very best product quality and service. We are proud that within a few years we have developed our brand from scratch into a leading player in the European fitness market. We work closely with both our resellers and end users to offer the best customer care. We have a clear goal, we are not complex and open and honest about what we de: what you see is what you get.
How it all started
Industrial product designer Gerben van Kalsbeek was asked by Reebok to develop an affordable and easily foldable treadmill with production in Taiwan. This successful I-Run Treadmill was the end result and it was the stepping stone for developing an own range of fitness products; the Flow Fitness brand was born. The brand was an instant success and within two years after the launch there was a dealer network of more than 100 points of sale.
The rapid growth of the company did not go unnoticed by the outside world. It received no less than three times the Gazellen Award from the Financieel Dagblad for the fastest growing company in The Netherlands. It is a honourable recognition, but growth is not a goal in itself for Flow Fitness. The result of what we do and how we do it, is much more important so we do our utmost best to deliver as importance. We work up a daily sweat for sales, marketing, distribution but above all effective after sales and a technically skilled customer service, so we can create a better quality of life by improving health and fitness.
