Why Free2Be

1-69.jpg

Founder, Buket Necip is a “burnout” survivor. After working in executive roles in the world of finance and fintech for over 20 years, she realized she was desperately missing … something. 


“COVID gave me an opportunity to see how much of my family and ‘me’ I missed,” she says. 


Buket realized she wasn’t alone in feeling disconnected from her true self. With a degree in Health Sciences and a passion for fitness and coaching, Free2Be Wellness grew from Buket’s knowledge that so many of us need to focus on our whole selves - our body, mind and soul. A unique take on wellness, Free2Be has transformed and elevated the outdated “gym” experience, creating instead a fully-equipped training studio that also offers float therapy, mindfulness and meditation practices, nutritional counselling, and an atmosphere of support and acceptance.

 

Here, you’re safe to be yourself as you discover and strengthen your body, your mind, and your soul.
