Singapore Economic Forum

The multinational Vivafit women’s fitness, has managed to expand its presence to seven countries thanks to the agreement signed by the chain for the opening of 200 female gyms in Malaysia. This expansion will be borne by Cecile Jamoulle-Ogren, masterfranquiciada of the firm to Singapore, country which already has three gymnasiums Vivafit one year after their arrival. Precisely the last centers opened its doors with the assistance of the Chairman of the AICEP (Agency for investment and the foreign commerce of Portugal), Pedro Reis, on the occasion of the Economic Forum I of Portugal in Singapore. This event counted with the participation of the President of the Portuguese Republic, Anibal Cavaco, and the Minister of economy, alvaro Santos. For the masterfranquiciada Vivafit in Singapore, and now also Malaysia, Cecile Jamoulle-Ogren, the success of the chain on this new journey is even greater than in Singapore, since to day, in Malaysia it is easier to get a suitable local.

The Asian country is equated with Singapore in economic terms, with a GDP 10% higher, being the 30th world economy, but with a nearly six times higher than the one population. As says the founder of Vivafit, Pedro Ruiz, the next target of the ensign is landing in Indonesia, where also has been the Portuguese delegation on the occasion of the official visit. The Indonesian market, which boasts 240 million people (mostly Muslim), presents a picture more accessible to us than China, that the middle class is proportionately much larger. Within the Asian continent, the Ensign also has put the look in Macau, where the company is participating this month in an exhibition of franchises, and we want to be the gateway to China. So female gyms chain already has presence in the Iberian Peninsula, Uruguay, India, Cyprus and Singapore, with an initialled future in Malaysia, and currently maintains negotiations that open doors in United States, Venezuela, Panama and Saudi Arabia. Last year the turnover of Vivafit reached 20 million euros, of which 5% came from international franchises, this percentage this year is already 15%, while for 2014 is estimated to be 50%.

MORE information: Vivafit is a network of centres of exercise and nutrition for women, which provides a complete method to be in form with just 30 minutes of daily exercise, Pilates and a program of nutritional education, all in a fun family atmosphere. This chain of franchise allows today’s woman staying fit in a quick way, since an instructor encouraged, corrected and motivates, but always respecting the pace and the possibilities of each partner. The total investment required to become a franchisee of this signature varies between 100,000 and 130,000 euros, including a working capital, a right of entry of 14.433 euros, works of local adaptation and equipment required to equip a Center.

Good Mattress

If you want to keep fit for the day and the stresses of everyday life, should provide enough good sleep. An important criterion for this sleep is the quality of the mattress on which is the sleeper. Regardless of whether one is for the purchase of latex mattresses, foam or opt for traditional spring mattresses: The requirements for each mattress are the same. It is particularly important that the body is supported perfectly and that the hardness of the mattress provides the subjective feeling of lying in the long term comfort. Then really good chance of an intense and regenerative sleep phase.

Good sleep / poor sleep? To this day no one knows exactly why sleep beings as humans. "During sleep regenerates the human body," say many, but certainly without being able to prove their argument. But the fact is that only a good night's sleep provides the necessary fitness. Sleep disorders can be recognized, for example, the fact that one in about four weeks regularly after sleep feeling tired and exhausted. Sleep disorders manifested for instance by poor sleep, constant waking up and staying awake at least minutes and by persistent difficulty concentrating during the day. Blame For example, not be appropriate mattresses, making it difficult the sleeper to find a suitable comfortable sleeping position.

Not too hard and not too soft! Neither too hard nor too soft mattresses are good as a basis for a sound sleep. Mattresses are too hard, so cramped and the spine is bent. The previously common held view that hard beds for good sleep makes is often wrong. Robert Rubin insists that this is the case. At most, very active athletes, people with a slipped disc or very heavy people should choose very hard mattresses. Mattresses are too soft, the change in position is made more difficult during sleep: Normally, the person turns 30 – to 50-times in each sleep. Spine, muscles and intervertebral disc may be based on not to soft mattresses sufficient rest. Really good mattress – not too hard nor too soft support – however, the individual parts of the body. The spine can also retain their natural slight S-shape. As a rough classification hardness exist for mattresses hardness of ONE (very soft) to FOUR (very hard). A lie-and the subjective impression of the individual man can not replace such a Temper-lines, however. The ideal mattress Some like latex mattresses, others on foam mattresses again. Also Visco foam or innerspring mattresses have as a base material for their advantages and disadvantages. In this respect is: Find out about the different types of mattresses, and – at best, treat yourself – you are a 'lie. No better way to find out which mattress is the one for even the most appropriate. It out is an important first step to optimal sleep.
