The reason we started working together was after years of working in separate areas, was that we wanted to show how much more may be achieved through a holistic approach to mind and body. FitMindCompany International BV is a result of this synergy; we love to energise and inspire people to become who they are, under the right circumstances. We would like others to share our excitement and personal experience about human potential, and live with an attitude of hope. In ‘growing people’ we believe in Jung’s view that: “I am not what happened me. I am what I choose to become”.
