Origins of our name

If you haven’t noticed the similarities between the airplane and the human body, Keith Tan would have you think again. For Keith, the founder of Aileron Wellness and a fitness enthusiast, the parallels of the two entities are aplenty, so with this belief and a soaring passion to help others lead better lives, he established Singapore’s leading boutique gym with the name “aileron”, a humble component in the majestic airplane that’s one of the greatest inventions of our time.

If the body of the aircraft represents the bare human anatomy, the tail that keeps it stable is like our assets and talent that move us through space and time. The wings generate the lift off the ground and are likened to our career, dreams and all that we do to bring ourselves higher towards a meaningful life.

But what the eye does not see is the humble “aileron” built within the wings of the plane. French for “little wing”, the aileron is a small component but nevertheless crucial to the movement of the plane – it is to an airplane what health and fitness are to our lives; we do not actually see it, but they affect and control our lives greatly.

In the same spirit, our motto, “Fitness Takes Flight” is an extrapolation of the metaphor. Armed with a sincere interest to help our clients develop a lifestyle that benefits their overall well-being, our client education programmes range from motion to nutrition, mental to environmental. With our clients’ “wings and tails” restored, life feels lighter and happier.
