HARNESS THE POWER OF SLEEP

FURTHERMORE AND DUXIANA PRESENT LIFE, AWAKENED - A SERIES OF VIDEOS AND ARTICLES PROMOTING DEEP, REGENERATIVE SLEEP AS THE FOUNDATION FOR AN ACTIVE, HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.

 

DUX bed owners understand the importance of sleep. That’s why they invested in a DUX Bed. The value they place on high quality sleep transcends their concern about price. In fact, they consider it a good deal. They understand that the choices they make in life and deciding what to spend their money on says a lot about who they are. Their decision to buy a DUX bed was an informed one. Most of them had done their homework before they entered the showroom. They had already concluded that exercise, diet, and sleep are the three keys to healthy living. They probably weren’t familiar with the DUX story or the multitude of features that define DUX, but they were knowledgeable about the importance of sleep and determined to do something to improve their quality of life. 

 

Welcome to DUX, because every day starts the night before.
