Fitness Scandinavia (FS) was founded in 2009 by Richmond Bachia and Veronica Alexe. The reception was such that within a period of 12 months it was considered to be the leading industry brand in Romania. 600 course participants were educated through FS within the first year of operation. Nine years later FS has educated almost 9000 course participants in over 12 cities in Romania.

FS is the founder and organizer of 2 of the biggest fitness events in Romania. The Romanian international fitness convention (RIFC) which has over 1500 participants every year and the Romanian Yoga Festival which has over 400 participants every year. The reason we decided to call our company Fitness Scandinavia is due to the fact that Richmond Bachia is from Norway and much of our education inspiration is from this part of the world.
