WHY THE BUTTERFLY
At MET. Performance Lab, we often entertain the question “Why the Butterfly?”. Many people feel as if the butterfly is too delicate or fragile for what we represent. Perhaps a bear or an eagle would be better suited? For us, it was never about strength, but rather change.
You see, a bear cub may only become a bigger bear, an eagle fledgling, only a bigger eagle. The butterfly, however, goes through one of nature’s greatest transformations. Born a miniscule organism, the caterpillar must climb towering trees, increase body weight by as much as 1000 times, spin silk stronger than steel, and all of this to complete its METamorphosis. To us, the value lies in the butterfly’s ability to change.
From the beginning, we knew that we wanted change. We wanted to change the way people thought about fitness, the way they thought about health, and the way they thought about life. We wanted to create an environment that would encompass, encourage and facilitate all of these changes. At MET. Performance Lab, we believe anyone, even from the humblest of beginnings, has the ability to change into something magnificent.
