The story of Fitsurance
Fitsurance was founded at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam by Human Movement scientists with a shared passion for health and physical activity. They were shocked to learn that 10 million people are suffering from chronic disease in The Netherlands. This number is still rising, even though health awareness and health literacy among consumers are at an all-time high. One reason for this is the scatteredness and variety of options in lifestyle interventions, making it difficult to know where to start when wanting to live and maintain a healthy life.
Fitsurance offers a solution by combining health diagnostics with lifestyle interventions into so-called data-driven lifestyle coaching. We advocate for a shift in focus from treatment to prevention. By empowering our customers to take control of their personal health, they are guided towards healthier, happier, and more active lives, regardless of their age, health awareness, fitness level, and wealth.
