PITAIYO is an acronym for Put “It” Together All In Your Orbit. Orbit is defined as a particular environment. In Pitaiyo we refer to the environment as someone’s mantra or lifestyle. We want people to know that PITAIYO is more than an exercise regime. It is a way of life—a way to recognize that we all are in control of what we put in or take out of our orbit.

Finding Your “IT”

What is the “IT” in Put it together all in your orbit?

Pitaiyo is a holistic approach to life fitness. Pitaiyo encompasses a fun, structured, dynamic performance system to body/mind wellbeing that is suited to beginners through elite athletes. “It” references two ideas:

  1. “IT” is an action…what you need to do; the other meaning of PITAIYO™ is something to achieve (you must do an action to cause a reaction to the action).
  2. “IT” is the result (the reaction) of Pitaiyo. The result of PITAIYO™ is: positive mindful thought and actions, and enhanced body composition.

Your orbit is where you are, both physically and mentally. PITAIYO™ gives you the enthusiasm to get to where you want to be. In order to get to where you want to be, you have to be mentally ready for the physical to take place. PITAIYO™ offers wellness to the beginner and enhanced sport performance for the elite athlete. “It” could vary from day to day. Today you may be searching for relaxation, or perhaps today you feel like working as hard as you can.
