Sharks launch Fitness First partnership
Tuesday 4 December 2012 4:06 PM
The Sharks today launched a new 12 month sponsorship arrangement with Fitness First at the fitness industry giant’s Woolooware facility adjacent to Sharks headquarters.
Attended by NRL squad members Ben Ross and John Morris, along with Gil Avenaim and Nick Geras from Fitness First, the launch event saw the exciting partnership become official.
The new sponsorship arrangement with Fitness First - which has four gyms in the Sutherland Shire at Woolooware, Wanda Beach, Sylvania and Miranda - will see the Sharks NRL squad frequent the nearest gym at Woolooware, while it also includes exciting benefits for Sharks members.
Avenaim, the Area Sales Manager for Fitness First, saw positives and benefits for all in his company’s partnership with the Sharks, with Fitness First to work closely with the Cronulla Sharks to promote health and fitness throughout the Shire community.
“Fitness First is a leading name in health and fitness with a goal to educate and improve fitness in the community, so it made perfect sense that we should team up with another large community player with similar values,” Avenaim said. “The Cronulla Sharks are the perfect fit for us and we look forward to teaming up throughout 2013 to offer exciting health and fitness programs and incentives for residents and businesses in the Shire.”
While Geras, the Fitness First State Manager added;
“We are very excited about the Fitness First /Cronulla Sharks partnership,” he said. “Sharks members will be able to take advantage of our Fitness First offerings at Cronulla, Wanda, Miranda and Sylvania, whilst Fitness First members will benefit from Sharks incentives and game day promotions.
“Our facilities will also be available for the NRL squad to use as part of their training. It’s a great WIN-WIN and we look forward to working closely with The Sharks throughout 2013 and beyond,” Geras said.
And in a bonus to Sharks Football Club members, Sharkies members and Sharks employees can kick start a fitness regime by joining any one of the four Fitness First gyms in the Sutherland Shire by taking advantage of a special SHARKS LAUNCH OFFER.
The special offer provides an excellent opportunity to lose the unwanted kilos, for improving general health, or for just looking good for the beach, whatever incentive best suits to get fit for summer.
For those Sharks members and employees who join before February 10th 2013, the Sharks Launch Offer allows them to choose either:-
• 10% off fortnightly membership fees or
• No start up fee (save $75.00)
This offer applies to both Lifestyle 12 month memberships and Flexible month by month memberships.
To take advantage members and employees just need to visit one of the four local Fitness First clubs, show Photo ID and Sharks membership card and then start training.
Plus Fitness First will also throw in a FREE Personal Training session to help put any new members on the right track from the start.
Fitness First runs by a tag line of play hard, work hard, train hard, something not all that different to the philosophies of the Sharks.
