FIU House

Get to know Roger and Humbert, the young and creative entrepreneurs behind the new place to be for creative souls, FIU House.

How and when did you meet each other to create FIUHouse? 

Four years ago when we graduated from the university. What started as a final project became a perfect excuse to stop working and start living a constant dream. 

Could you explain to us the concept of FIUHouse? 

FIUHouse is a meeting point for active minds from the creative world that meet up to work together and grow personally and professionally. A place where we build dreams together, always led by passion, effort, growth and will to learn. 

What are the different profiles of Fiuers? 

Right now, with a community of more than 50 fiuers, there’s a variety of more than 13 different disciplines in the FIUHouse. Disciplines related to visual arts (most of them) such as graphic design, illustration, photography, editorial design, painting, motion graphics as well as writting or even cooking. Profiles dedicated to different disciplines but united in their way of thinking and working. 

Where did that idea of collaborating with Llop (En Compañía de Lobos) come from?

A contact that we had in En Compañía de Lobos knew FIUHouse from when we were a festival/itinerant event and saw an opportunity to boost the second room of the restaurant, that until now had been left empty.  

FIUHouse’s motto? 

FIU is the sound a rocket makes when taking off. House is because we want the young creatives that enter our space to feel like home. 

Your tricks to start the day? 

Be grateful for waking up to another day. Thinking of the reasons why we consider ourselves lucky. Take a shower. Take a good breakfast and get out of your house while listening to the best song of our playlist. 

The last song that was stuck in your head? 

Rampue – Una Bluna

Martin Ebner

Get to know Martin Ebner, certified personal trainer and sports nutrition specialist behind Ebylife

Born in Scotland, what made you want to move to Barcelona? 

I was actually living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 7 years prior to moving to Barcelona so Scotland didn’t necessarily feature into the equation. My wife and I had spent a summer in Barcelona a couple of years prior to moving and we instantly fell in love with Barcelona’s charm. Closer to home, a more stable economy, a very similar climate and language than Argentina. It was a no brainer really!

When and how did you start Ebylife? 

I started Ebylife in Buenos Aires around 5 years ago. After a few close friends asked me if I would be willing to train them, I enthusiastically agreed to start a group fitness class that would eventually become known as Abfab. Having spent the good majority of my life working out, I was keen to try my hand at helping those around me to get fit and healthy. Needless to say the training sessions were a big success and it wasn’t long until I was training friends of friends and then eventually attracting a wider range of clients requesting personal training and nutrition services. Ebylife was born!

What is the motto of Ebylife? 

I truly believe that no two people are exactly the same. Everyone has different goals, body types, abilities, personalities and lifestyle factors that affect their ability to train and live a healthy lifestyle. That’s why I offer a very personalised approach to fitness. By taking the time to get to know each and every client on a personal level, I can offer a more tailored approach to training and nutrition which often produces more effective results.

For you, the most important quality to have to be a good personal trainer? 

That’s a very good question. I would have to say one of the most important qualities is the ability to put those around you at ease. I get a lot of new clients that are often very nervous about working out for the first time or after a long break. It’s my job as a personal trainer to put them at ease and squash any self-doubts and fears they have as quickly as possible. That way they can relax, enjoy and focus on what’s most important, getting fit and healthy!

What is the most rewarding part of your job? 

Without a doubt, it’s seeing the quality of my client’s lives improve.

Many people will start an exercise and healthy diet plan to obtain a more aesthetically pleasing body – a beach bod if you will! While this is an extremely important factor and something I always work towards with my clients, it’s often the smaller benefits like feeling stronger and fitter, better sleep, more energy, less aches and pains and more confidence that give my clients the most pleasure. This for me, is extremely rewarding!

Have you always been living the Ebylife lifestyle? 

I’ve always been a very active person despite a few rather podgy years in my teens. Having played ice hockey as a youth, been an avid runner in my late teens and early twenties, done snowboard seasons in New Zealand and the US, I was always very interested sports. However, it wasn’t until I became a personal trainer and got certified that I really began to live the “Ebylife lifestyle”. A very important part of being a personal trainer is living the life you preach and I genuinely do live it! I’m constantly trying out new training methods and diet plans so that I can separate the fact from the fiction and then pass on the most accurate information to my clients first hand.

What is your trick to start your day? 

A strong coffee, a big bowl of porridge oats (Come on i’m Scottish) and a workout. I truly believe that by kick starting your day with some hearty food and a good sweat, you set yourself up to dominate the day.

The best advice someone ever gave you? 

From my dad who stole it from Lao Tzu. lol

During a difficult moment my dad said to me “If you’re anxious, you’re living in the future. If you’re depressed, you’re living in the past. If you are at peace, you’re living in the present.”  For some reason it really stuck with me and it’s something I always try to live by. I know it’s much easier said than done but if you can learn to really appreciate and live in the present, you’ll be a far happier person for it.  Life is too short to live anywhere but in the now!

An item you couldn’t live without? 

I should probably say something like my kettlebells or resistance bands but let’s be honest, if I didn’t have fitness equipment I could easily find a way to exercise without them. I’m a bit of a coffee fiend so I would probably have to say my Aeropress and milk frother!

Now we will ask you some questions so we can get to know you a bit more.

Beach or mountain? 

Does it have to be one or the other?! lol I’ve lived in the mountains and on the beach and genuinely love them both equally!

Early bird or night owl? 

Early bird.

Inside or outside? 

Outside 100%

Alone or in a group? 

50/50

Scotland or Spain?

Scotland for family, old friends, the humour and fish and chips with brown sauce. Spain for everything else.

Endurance or strength? 

80% Strength, 20% endurance.

Relaxing or invigorating? 

80% invigorating, 20% relaxing.

Black, white or green? Talking about Kailani of course!

Green.

FIUWorkshop w/ Sergi Delgado

On Wednesday 11th of April we hosted a creative workshop in FIUHOUSE in collaboration with the talented visual artist Sergi Delgado. With him, we designed limited edition posters during a two hour workshop led by the young artist. Our source of inspiration was our campaign #createtoday as well as our creative, healthy and eco-conscious philosophy.
Thank you very much to all the creative souls that participated in this event.

Can you tell us a bit more about Yugo?

YUGO is a start-up of motosharing. Our users have a fleet of  210 electric scooters scattered around the city that can be used at their convenience, paying just € 0.22 per minute and everything through an app, without keys or stations. We wanted to create not only a mode of transportation to go from A to B but a new way of life, an experience. In addition, all this helps the shared economy and the protection of the environment.

What are the profiles of the Yugo users?

The user of YUGO is anyone who wants to move around the city in a comfortable, fast and stylish way. Someone who respects the environment and believes in the culture of sharing and taking care of things.
