  • Why are you in the business?
    NBE FITNESS was established to create a whole life service provision platform; to provide consistent and reliable space for those seeking an inclusive space. Our CEO, Kanndiss Riley, found rarely any Black women leaders in Wellbeing space being platformed as industry leaders. When she ran her sessions in gyms or went to wellbeing expos, there were clear intersections of society not in these spaces platformed as experts, top brands or leaders. So NBE FITNESS was created to start a wave of providing intentional wellbeing space that develops around the needs of those marginalised groups to gain investments and recognition.
