Exhibitor Fitterfirst is giving entrants a shot at winning the VariDesk Single, a revolutionary platform that allows users to turn a traditional desktop into a sit/stand desk. This desk-enhancing gadget, valued at $324.95, is designed to improve energy, health and productivity by enabling people to work while switching between sitting and standing.

We chatted with Louis Stack, Fitterfirst founder and proud third generation Calgarian, to get the lowdown on this revolutionary new concept.

Tell us when your company was established and how it got started.

The company was established in 1985.  I underwent double foot and knee surgery, which caused me to suffer a serious balance issue. Balance training would have helped improve my condition. But, unfortunately the training device was not available in North America. This inspired me to improve the design and concept of the device available in Europe and bring it to North America. This eventually led to the creation of Fitterfirst, where we focus on the development and manufacturing of simple yet highly functional balance and stability products. The products are designed to help reduce injuries, enhance sport performance and increase user’s confidence in sports and daily living.
What inspires you when creating equipment for Fitterfirst?

I focus on products that are functional in that they integrate stability, agility and mobility in the human body, with the goal of improving health and overall wellbeing.

How many years have you involved with the Calgary Home + Design Show and what is your favourite part?

This is the second year we will be exhibiting at the show. My favourite part is interacting with customers and helping them live a better, more comfortable day-to-day life. 

What is your life philosophy?

I believe that quality of life does not come from what you have, it comes from what you do with what you have.
