1% For good
We believe in finding ways to do good in our every day. So we’ve made it so 1% of the profit of every purchase goes to an Australian Charity or Cause.
What Else We Do
We have been lucky enough to build a business that grants us the opportunity to give back to our local fitness community and the wider community as well. So as a team we actively participate in community outreach.
Whether it’s pushing for more sustainable packaging or always putting our customers first, people are at our core. Inclusion is key to us and we have a diverse and rich team and culture.
This video is a great summary of Paul and I talking about some of the charities we support, and some of the ways we try to give back in addition to why we made giving back a non-negotiable part of our business model with our Weekly Giving Goal.
The Weekly Giving Goal
The Weekly Giving Goal is something we introduced to our team to encourage us to make giving back a non-negotiable and constant part of our business. We found without this structure we would slip into the habit of wanting to do great stuff but letting the day to day running of the business get in the way.
Weekly each member of our team chooses an individual Giving Goal for the week, where each of us actively gives back to the community, environment or a loved one.
Since introducing our Weekly Giving Goal many of our friends in business have made it a part of their business or personal practice. If you’d like to do the same, here are some of our favourite past Giving Goals to try:

LOVE THE EARTH PACKAGING
We take care of our team, our FBO Fam, our local community and now our corner of the earth. In line with our values of innovation and care, we’ve moved away from bubble wrap, plastic sticky tape and soft plastic mailers and we have introduced new eco-friendly changes to our packaging.
Things we are doing:
- Eco-friendly compostable mailers
- Hex Wrap that is compostable or recyclable
- We Recycle cardboard boxes from our suppliers to pack your orders
- We use recycled paper for printing flyers and invoices
- Your parcels are secured with paper stickers with eco-friendly adhesive
We’ve done the research, and have extensively tested our new packaging to ensure our breakages in transit did not increase and our packages still arrive safe and sound for a beautiful unboxing experience. We also did a cost analysis report showing that the eco-friendly change wouldn't have a significant impact on our bottom line as a business. We’re encouraging all small business owners to make the change to eco-friendly, if we can do it, so can you!
