Our cities are designed in ways that both degrade the environment and alienate us from nature. Here at Fit Queens House (FQ House) we embrace a biofilic design. The term “biophilia” which translates to “”love of life or living systems”, incorporates nature with design.  Biofilic design mimicks the details of nature with vegetation, textiles, artwork, light, scents, sounds, shapes, patterns or natural materials. The essence of this type of design is the idea that design should be fused with natural elements so as to offer the most benefits to a person’s wellbeing.

Incorporating elements of nature into indoor design have been demonstrated through research to reduce stress, blood pressure levels and heart rates, while increasing productivity, creativity and rates of well-being. Our aim at FQ House is to get those same benefits to create an environment that will benefit our Queens while working out.

The most important aspects of our biofilic design are greenery, air quality, sustainability, light quality, scent and acoustics.

  1. Our starting point is incorporating plant life into our interior. Besides relieving stress, it is also incredibly relaxing and it will help you feel more at home.
  2. We use air-purifying plants and natural ventilation to ensure the best air quality.
  3. We also prioritize sustainable, low waste and non-toxic cleaning agents and other materials
  4. We incorporate as much season flexible color palletes, textures and visuals as possible.
  5. Our large windows will brighten up the place and allow natural light to flow in.
  6. We also use aromatherapy for a relaxing yet energising and pleasant scent that will nourish your soul. The scent incites the ability to connect with the goodness of nature.
  7. After your workout you will be delighted with acoustic music and loose leaf tea so you will be able to relax, de-stress and catch up with your FQ sisters.

Also, in a time where perfection is the main goal, it’s hard to take a step back and appreciate what we have and who we are. That is why we embrace the concept of wabi sabi in our design. “Wabi-sabi is the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete, the antithesis of our classical Western notion of beauty as something perfect, enduring, and monumental”.

Wabi-sabi offers a refuge from the modern world’s obsession with perfection and accepts imperfections as all the more meaningful – and, in their own way, beautiful. Wabi-sabi lets you embrace imperfection and unpredictability of life. The concept can easily be applied simply to moments of everyday life. The relentless pursuit of perfection often leads to stress, anxiety, depression and hasty judgement. This is where Wabi-sabi invites a pause. At FQ House we want to encourage you to pause and  focus on the blessings shining in your daily life and celebrating the way things are rather than craving how they should be.

Our interior design focuses on:

  1. Simplicity
  2. Thrifted materials
  3.  Asymmetry or irregularity
  4. Beauty in the understated
  5. Naturalness without pretension
  6. Subtle grace
  7. Freeness
  8. Tranquility

Besides being charmed by our design, you will also work out like never before with a supporting and motivating family. You won’t find any mean women in this family—just lots of empowered and compassionate women. Besides personal training, we provide a wide variety of small group classes where a maximum of 12-15 participant are allowed in each class so we can make sure to give proper attention to our participants. This means that each time you will be properly guided and pushed to the max by our instructors.

FQ House is a visual connection to nature; a green and peaceful cocoon in the heart of Voorbug. You are more than welcome to join us for a great class and a cup of tea/coffee or healthy snacks after.
