Mads H. Frederiksen, NABUFIT Board Chairman said: "The recipe for an efficient workout is a highly subjective matter -- there is no 'one size fits all', which is exactly why we are gathering the very best sports professionals in the world as NABUFIT mentors. It is not about telling people how to live their lives or trying to fit them into a universal standard of how they should look. We want to inspire more people to obtain a better and longer life through workouts customized to their level and needs, from young people to seniors and from beginner to elite. With the signing of the Brazilian soccer star, Neymar Jr., NABUFIT can position the fitness platform on a global scale to reach and inspire a broad audience."
Neymar Jr., NABUFIT Global Ambassador expressed: "When I come across people sharing my passion for sports and workout with a desire to make the world a better place to live in, I contribute as much as possible. I am compelled by NABUFIT's way of thinking about workout as an individual training process adjusting training to the level that fits the best. I see this way of levelling an individual's workout along with improving their training as quite unique and very user-friendly. Individuals can constantly improve their training results and most importantly their way of living."
