Introducing ... UFIT Performance

We are excited to announce the launch of UFIT Performance, a dedicated UFIT business dedicated to business communities, sports teams and individuals with elite performance goals.

Following the huge success of UFIT's Fitness, Nutrition, Education and Clinic businesses which have successfully transformed the lives of thousands of individuals, UFIT Performance now offers the fundamentals of performance used by professional athletes and coaches to the everyday person, to companies wanting to engage their teams, and sports teams seeking a competitive edge

With over 50 years of professional sporting experience across UFIT’s staff, UFIT Performance is well-placed to be able to leverage its first hand experience and world-class expertise to all.

Says Will Skinner, UFIT Performance Director and former international rugby player:

"We love to be creative with the guys we work with, we know that no two companies or teams are alike so we tailor our approach to suit their goals and culture. 

Our priority is always around engagement, anyone can motivate the top 20-30%, but the key for us is making sure we interact with the guys who tend not to engage with programmes like this. We know if we can work with this segment, then the benefits to the whole group are enormous - this is how we judge our success. 

 

The key is being flexible - we can engage in person or using the latest digital technology to make our strategies accessible at any time of day from anywhere in the world. And regardless of the program we always make it fun, inclusive and motivating." 

We’ve worked with some of the world’s largest organisations in Singapore, Hong Kong and the US. In July we were appointed Linkedin’s official wellness Partner in Singapore managing their holistic programme and in-house gym facility, are Disney Singapore’s official wellness provider, and developed a programme for Hewlett-Packard Enterprise that led to working with 1,200 people in Las Vegas. These have been just some of the highlights over the last three months.

James Forrester added: "Even when working with the most dedicated and focused individuals, it’s imperative to deliver something that both is relatable and simple. So when deciding on our fundamental areas of focus we decided to draw upon aspects that are part of everyone’s lives anyway - simply working out ways to make the time dedicated to these areas as effective as possible".

Our three Performance maxims and some examples of how we bring these elements to life are:

MOBILITY & MOVEMENT

  • Effective exercise programs to improve fitness and raise endorphins, to fit in with the specific needs, lifestyle and culture of the team
  • Elite athlete training consultancy 
  • Group workouts for team building and as “time out” from the office
  • Ergonomics in the workplace and whilst travelling
  • Creative team building challenges to get people moving without them realizing they’re actually getting great exercise.

REST & RECOVERY

  • Rehab and recovery to treat and prevent pain.
  • Stretching, yoga and pilates to recharge the mind and body
  • Sleep strategies to optimise productivity and happiness
  • Consulting on striking the right balance between work and play
  • Mindfulness and meditation programmes and podcasts to engage anywhere anytime.

NUTRITION & HYDRATION

  • Nutrition programs to improve health and lose weight
  • In house consultancy with existing suppliers
  • Advice on eating well whilst travelling 
  • Strategies to keep the entire family healthy and happy
  • Discounts and offers with healthy food providers.

Says Will: "I don’t think anyone can deny that these factors have an impact on an individual’s performance. Our programmes will improve your own or your team’s resilience, concentration, precision, consistency and happiness – something we like to term ‘Mental Energy’, and it’s our job to prove how much positive influence there can be in this area through a proportionately low investment”.

UFIT Performance is the fourth new business to launch under the UFIT brand in the last 12 months. UFIT continues to invest and diversify into the health and wellness space and with UFIT Performance now taking the brand overseas it won’t be long before UFIT has a permanent physical presence outside of Singapore.
