Susana Yábar and Stanley Sarpong, co-authors of the lifestyle book El Reto Mariposa and international creators, started their journey on the island of Ibiza, precisely on the beach of Las Salinas. Together they have created the second largest fitness and lifestyle channel for Spanish-speaking women on YouTube with almost 5 million subscribers, with channels in Spanish, English, French and Portuguese. Although the two produce lifestyle content under their brand Funfitt in the most exotic places and beaches in the world, they say there is nothing like filming their videos at "home", in Ibiza.
Susana Yábar has dreamed of becoming a television producer since she was a child: she thought it was a fun, different and exciting job, and she was surprised that something like that was called "work". With the aim of fulfilling this dream, she studied journalism. After almost two decades in the field, working on programmes such as Supervivientes and Españoles por el mundo, he still thinks it is something fun, different and exciting. Due to his work in television, with changing schedules that did not allow him to go to the gym, he decided to start exercising on his own. As a result, Stanley Sarpong, from his experience of working at Google, proposed the idea of creating a YouTube channel together where they could share their passion for sport and healthy living with others. This project started more than five years ago, and they now have more than four million followers around the world.
Stanley Sarpong, co-creator of the Funfitt and @SusanaYabar brands, has been living sugar-free since he discovered he was allergic to sugar and dairy products at a young age. This, along with playing high-level sports such as football, became his motivation to lead a healthy and natural lifestyle. He studied Nutrition at the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health and has a Masters in Business Administration and Strategic Management. He worked for five years at Google and is best known for being the co-creator and driving force behind the YouTube Street Soccer tour during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He now focuses entirely on digital content creation. His YouTube channels have over five million followers worldwide and he inspires thousands of women (and men) in their personal growth through his workouts. Her mission is to help women feel that confidence is their best make-up.
Our work is focused on making Fomento del Turismo de Ibiza an increasingly open forum for debate that draws together a wide range of interests, agrees strategies and stimulates professionals, workers, companies and organisations from all the island's economic and social spheres to benefit from membership.
We want Fomento de Ibiza to be an open forum for debate, one that agglutinates common interests, reaches a consensus as to the strategies that should be followed, and encourages professionals, workers, companies and entities from all the island’s economic and social walks of life to work together
Fomento del Turismo de la Isla de Ibiza (Island of Ibiza Tourism Development) is an association founded by a group of forward-looking people who set themselves the task of stimulating, promoting and developing the island's budding tourist industry.
