What Is Bannafit?

Bannafit will change the way that you view fitness. Fitness is about more than just 6-pack abs. It’s also about finding a lifestyle that has you feeling at your best, and most capable self, everyday. It’s time to discover new potential.

About Alaa Allen Elbanna

My name is Alaa (aka Allen) Elbanna. I am an electrical engineering graduate from Edmonton, AB, Canada. Over the past 3 years, I’ve been on a self exploration journey in which I have found my passion. That passion is in holistic health.

Although this sounds like a tremendous victory, it hasn’t been all rainbows and butterflies. My journey has been full of roadblocks. After completing my second year of university, I found myself 25 lbs heavier and significantly more unhappy then when I had started university. As a result, I set out to figure out how I was going to find a healthier (and more aesthetically pleasing) form.

Upon finding what I would think to be solutions, I would try them out only to find that they didn’t work. This happened time and time again. Although this is extremely frustrating, I had to look at the glass half full. I was learning a lot! And those around me were beginning to notice. Every failure only drove me to try harder and learn more. Little-by-little my appearance, confidence and vibrancy began to improve.

I don’t think the learning will ever stop but I feel extremely wealthy with the knowledge that I’ve accumulated up to this point. I feel like I am protected from the dangers that society possesses and I am motivated to share that information with those who are looking to find it.

Bannafit will teach you how to look the way that you want to and how that is ultimately a reflection of your most authentic, confident and capable self. Nutrition, exercise and well-being have been wrongly taught to us as we grow up.

Meaning in the Logo

The Bannafit logo is packed with meaning. First of all is the name “Bannafit” which is my last name attached to the word “fit”. Saying it fast begins to sound like “benefit” which is what I hope this brand can provide.

The 3 arms extruding from the heart in the center resemble the x,y and z axis in 3D. This pays homage to my engineering background and the fact that I found myself through that degree.

The 3 arms also represent what I believe to be the 3 fundamental aspects of total health. Those 3 aspects are: physical capability, mental growth and spiritual awareness. Each of these aspects guide you in their own way, through this 3D universe that we find ourselves in. Without them being in balance, you’re lost.

The heart in the center is you heart and it’s shining. It’s shining because your heart will light the way to guide you in the right direction.
