Q. Why did you start Salt Lick Ftiness? 

A. Salt Lick Fitness was established on the basis of maintaining a healthy mind and body in the madness of what is, The Yachting Industry.

The work/wellness ratio can be quite hard to maintain, constantly changing countries, time zones, long hours, unrealistic expectations somehow constantly being met! Minimal time, space and equipment. Being "yachties" ourselves and working in excess of 13 hour days for months on a busy charter yacht, it was brought to our attention the importance of prioritizing your mental and physical health.

Early on in our career we found ourselves burning out & suffering from fatigue, however with a lot of trial and error we feel as though we have built a solid defence against those factors and want to share and learn from others facing similar challenges.


Q. What is your goal for Salt Lick Fitness within the industry?

A. Our goal is to help crew and nomads alike, learn how to manage these lifestyles without neglecting their own fitness, health and mental wellbeing. Spare time & breaks can be a commodity, we wish to share tips and tricks to keep sanity onboard and maybe make life a little more balanced, we are by no means experts, simply doing our part to help to help the superyacht and maritime community.
