SmellWell launched in German early this year, starting with ISPO and our ever-expanding brand awareness continued at FIBO in Hall 4.2, we met so many beautiful and driven people.
Sascha Dejas, a drill sergeant at Baristi Workout from Hamburg, with mad callisthenic skills. This form of gymnastic exercises is aimed to achieve bodily fitness and grace of movement. Springing from the Greek “Kallos” meaning Beauty and “Sthenos” Strength, it promotes healthy living and a desirable physique can be attained by means of calisthenics. A series of many simple exercises which are performed using purely body weight. The aim of these exercises is to train muscularity strength and to evolve comprehensive fitness. Dating back as far as 500 B.C soldiers in training during the reign of the Spartans and Chinese Monks dedicated to protecting their monasteries from robbers and looters utilized these calisthenics methods. Think “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” meets “300”. This will no doubt transform your body and your physique and ready for-TV piece of equipment. @khalisthenix
SmellWell also met Markus Fritschi, who started Gettoworkout in October 2015. An amazing Team, with loads of energy and a fantastic spirit – is the first workout that combines fitness with team sports – Gettoworkout it is exhausting, building team spirit and motivation. From the first to the last, the team remains together, but everyone can go to his personal limit. The first High Intensity Interval team workout based on pure bodyweight training.

Get those endorphin pumping! Gettoworkout is based on the scientifically proven High Intensity Interval Training, which was developed in the 1930s for performance sprinters and mid-range runners. HIIT focuses on short to very short, high-intensity stress phases, followed by short to medium pauses. Numerous studies demonstrate the effectiveness of HIIT, which is why today it is a component of almost every professional training for performance enhancement – and it is sporty. @getto.workout
Maya Rose who is from USA, and now living in Germany came past our stand at FIBO, a beautiful girl with a big heart. Don’t let the sport’s model facade fool you, she offers more than nutritional advice and “I promise I will listen to you and give you the empathy you deserve.” Says Maya on her blog (Dark Hours) Leading herself to listen, without judgement while you remain anonymous. Nothing like a good talk. @maya.rose96
