An Edge for Your Biohacking
Our community is constantly challenging the limits of our bodies. Optimizing our minds is central to our progress because it unlocks our best abilities.
Amplify Your Willpower
Breaking our greatest records requires our strongest resolve.
Fuel Consistent Focus
Whether it’s training or life, we need unwavering focus.
End Daily Fatigue
The high demands of our life require a pipeline of constant energy.
Eliminate Internal Hesitation
Grounding confidence is central to expanding your performance.
When our body is out of tune, so are we. The body maintains balance during stress through a mechanism known as homeostasis. When properly supported, it helps us remain energized and focused during life’s challenges. But chronic stress can make it difficult for that natural equilibrium to be restored. Qualia is designed to support underlying regulatory function so we can handle more.
We believe that educated, entertained and inspired athletes always perform at their best, and more importantly, that they have the power to impact and shape their communities in extraordinary ways.
Ever passionate about the fitness world we come from; strength remains at the very heart of our message. It forms the foundation from which we can now broaden out and delve deeper into wider topics such as eduction, healthcare, agriculture, anthropology, science and the arts.
Our purpose is to offer up and inspire new ways of training, learning, thinking, moving, living and loving. We’re on a journey and we hope you’ll come along for the ride.
