ABOUT US

PURAVIDA – WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

While vacationing in Costa Rica in 2004, Erik Peacock, founder and president of Puravida Fitness was introduced to the term “Pura Vida” which in Spanish means “pure life.” In Costa Rica it is used as a greeting to wish someone well or as a synonym for excellence – “Life is wonderful, enjoy it.”

“Pura Vida” resonated with Erik as it symbolized a zest for living fully, not taking anything for granted, and being everything that you are meant to be. He used it as the name for his fitness studio where he challenges his clients to be the best they can be and experience the essence of pure life.
