Fitkids Foundation and Tunturi

Each person has equal rights to practice sports. Even if you have a disability or if you have any type of obstacle or challenge in life. We believe that sports and exercise can significantly contribute to each person’s well-being. That is why Tunturi is proudly announcing its partnership with Fitkids as of the 1st of January 2022. Through this collaboration we will support Fitkids.

About fitkids

More than a million children in the Netherlands have a registered condition, which means they are often unable to practice sports and gymnastics at the same level as others. Every year, Fitkids helps approximately 4.500 children through a special fitness and exercise program, so that eventually the children can independently practice a sport of their choice (adapted or regular). This can be a team sport, but also an individual sport. They receive individual coaching, but they also train in groups.

"Fitkids is the fitness and exercise program for children aged six to eighteen
with a chronic illness, disability or long-term condition."

This does not only boost self-confidence and self-esteem, it is also good for developing social skills, trust in and support for each other. And children learn that doing sports together is simply great fun!

The Fitkids program is offered at approximately 170 physio practices throughout the Netherlands. Under the supervision of a (paediatric) physiotherapist, children train and move for six tot twelve months, making them stronger, fitter and giving them more confidence. They can do more than they think! And exercise can be a lot of fun, even if you have a disability.


Tunturi designs and develops a wide range of equipment and accessories for cardio and strength training. Founded in 1922 and with its roots in the Finnish highlands, the journey to a healthy body was and remains the main focus for the company. Feel better every day. Always and for everyone. Thus, also for children.

Tunturi and Fitkids

We are given one body and we have to live with that for the rest of our lives. The journey of a healthy lifestyle starts at an early age. According to our philosophy, sport should be accessible to everyone, including children.

However, that is not a reality for everyone. Sometimes a person cannot quite keep up with sports at school or in extracurricular activities. The children who are the last ones left when choosing a team because they cannot play football, run or jump like the other children. We believe, just like Fitkids, that these children have just as much right to doing healthy sports activities as anyone else.
