Focus Fitness : Who we are

What's In a word?


Historically the word "focus" has held several meanings. Its latin origin translated to fireplace, or hearth. It was a term for gathering, family, and warmth. Later the the term, evolved by the mathematician Kepler, to mean "point of convergence" referencing the optical burning point of a lense.

What it has always meant, at its heart is: center of activity, energy & warmth.

We take the history of the word to heart, and strive to offer our community a central gathering point for people to create heat, warmth, change & light with accessible, challenging yet welcoming yoga & fitness classes. Getting, and staying healthy takes a village. It takes support, diversity and inspiration. It takes focus.
