Chi and his team brought the services together that are not only during exercise but also are before and after exercise, such as limousine service and custom meal, providing a complete and amazing experience of exercise or relaxation.

Wei-Kang Chi and Sauna
It was in 2017 when Chi was looking for something that has beneficial effects on muscle recovery after exercise, soon he discovered Sauna and Sauna from Finland, and went to the first World Sauna Forum to learn more about building saunas and delivering authentic sauna experience to people.
