According to the CDC, 71.6% of Americans are overweight or obese. Recent reports have shown that the average weight gain amid the pandemic is now over 20 pounds. We will get past the virus, but according to The National Health Institute over 300,000 people die every year due to obesity related causes.
Andrew Alfano, CEO of Retro Fitness, said he believes that public health is about living your healthiest life. To promote this ethos, starting this month they are offering a zero down and zero commitment membership to anyone who has been vaccinated.
“Our Vaccine Offer is a way for us to incentivize people to not only get their vaccine, but to also take the bigger step in getting back to the health club and get fit,” he said. “Why the offer? Because Retro Fitness, and all health clubs, are in fact an extension of healthcare. We felt the need to do our part in creating a healthier America and get real about the journey we want to take with our members. Our brand footprint already extends beyond the four walls of our clubs by including healthy eating segments, mental health, at-home fitness, and more into the lives of Americans to promote a healthier world.”
