CoFit is a bilingual corporate fitness provider that specializes in bringing accessible, engaging, and diverse fitness to any office and workplace environment. Operating in Tokyo since May 2018, our clients include many of the top multinational tech, finance, insurance, sports apparel, and other Fortune 500 companies.


CoFit aims to become the best corporate fitness provider in Tokyo.


Our fitness services are informed by our three core values.
  1. Accessibility - We strive to create custom solutions for any office and workforce environment. Whether your company only has some open space in a common area, or your employees are absolute beginners, or you have a mixed Japanese-international workforce, we can adapt our service to your needs.
  2. Connection - We use fitness as a tool to connect people and inspire them to live happier and healthier lives. Our goal in each session is to create moments of joy, shared accomplishment, and connection. We don’t measure our classes in calories, but rather, shared laughter and smiles.
  3. Diversity - Our team hails from around the world, and each person brings a unique perspective and style. It is this diversity that is our greatest strength.


CoFit Movement was born from the simple idea that fitness can be used as a tool to connect people and inspire them to live healthier and happier lives. Leo and Menya had experienced the profound positive impact such a mindset could have on people through their involvement at SOGO Fitness (a not for profit fitness community operating in Tokyo with over 10,000 members) since 2016.

The founders of CoFit envisioned bringing the inclusive and social style of fitness developed within SOGO to the corporate office environment, where it could be adapted to create happier, healthier, and more connected workplaces.

My Pilates journey began when I first encountered it while working in reception at a major fitness club. By attending classes, my back pain disappeared and my physical condition improved. So, I decided to become a Pilates master trainer and personal trainer.

I hope to inspire others to improve their physical and mental health, as I have, by creating fitness experiences that are fun and meaningful.
