MWW ADDS CYBEX INTERNATIONAL TO FITNESS PRACTICE
Exercise Equipment Industry Leader Hires MWW to Promote Arc Trainer
NEW YORK – June 24, 2013 – MWW (www.mww.com), one of the top five global independent public relations firms, announced today the expansion of its award-winning fitness practice with the addition of Cybex International, Inc. (www.cybexintl.com), a top manufacturer of premium exercise equipment. MWW has been charged to build brand awareness for the Arc Trainer, an innovative total body cross trainer fitness machine that is scientifically proven to deliver top results while being gentler on joints. The program will target key audiences that are critical to the Cybex community, including personal trainers, gym owners and health conscious consumers.
The assignment taps the expertise of MWW’s fitness practice. The practice is comprised of a specialized team that includes certified personal trainers, former journalists and marketing and public relations specialists with expertise in the fitness, health and nutrition sectors. MWW’s current fitness clients include Gold’s Gym, Zumba® Fitness and Runtastic, among others.
“MWW’s fitness practice is second to none. They have deep knowledge of our category and an expansive network of relationships with the influencers who matter,” said Lisa Juris, Cybex’s vice president of marketing. “MWW is more than a PR firm but a strategic partner who will play an essential role as we shine a spotlight on the Arc Trainer and continue to grow the larger Cybex brand.”
Cybex’s revolutionary Arc Trainer is scientifically proven to produce faster fitness results with less strain on knees and joints over elliptical equipment. The versatile machine delivers power, strength and cardio results with a unique combination of glide, stride and climb motions, burning 16 percent more calories during a workout than an elliptical.
“The Arc Trainer has revolutionized and raised the bar for the fitness equipment category, setting new standards for results and safety. Our program will help increase brand awareness for Arc among influencers and consumers and will shine attention on Cybex, a great American brand and a pioneer in its category,” said Alissa Blate, MWW’s global practice director, consumer lifestyle marketing.
