Moving from 2018 to 2019 – The Fitneff Journey Continues...

2018 was an exciting year for our team, and we would like to take the opportunity to thank all our customers that are supporters of the Fitneff movement!  

In 2018 I took inspiration from our customers both young and old. From Tyrel, Ph.D. student in Montreal, who started using a standing desk and realized increased energy and focus, to a senior, Sherrill, who purchased one of our most popular items, the Bodycraft Spacewalker, that prompted this feedback: “I purchased the Spacewalker after having a heart attack and triple bypass in December. Weather wasn't conducive to walking but needed to exercise. This was the answer.”  I was also inspired by our team at Fitneff who embarked on a Garmin Step Challenge for the month of July. This challenge motivated us to integrate more movement into our days to fight against the sedentary behaviours that have become so normal in day-to-day life.  

This year we continued to expand our line of quality products from both our existing suppliers and some amazing new partners. If you haven’t seen them yet, check out some of the unique solutions that are loved by our customers:  


Ergotron – Solutions that rethink the workplace and empower smart learning.

Safco - Workspace solutions that will help make your workday easier, more comfortable and hopefully a little more fun.

Luxor  - Turn your workspace into a space that works better.

iMovR - Leading the charge against "sitting disease."

KidsFit – Changing the future for all children through movement.

Swiftspace - Workspaces that have the mobility and flexibility to change how employees work.

Varier - Movement for the people – Sit down. Move on.

VARIDESK Education - Elevating student performance with standing desks.

Kore Design - The leader in ACTIVE SITTING.

FootFidget – Position your students to succeed.


We are looking forward to an exciting 2019.  A focus this coming year will be to offer office ergonomic and classroom kinesthetic education along with the solutions that we offer our customers. Fitneff is partnering with some reputable training companies to bring both online and in-person training solutions that will help to bring a positive change into workplaces and classrooms across Canada!

From all of us at Fitneff, we wish you a fantastic Christmas holiday season and a 2019 that is active and healthy.

All the best,

Ron Bettin
