Zdrofit to close ranks with the Warsaw Marathon foundation as the fitness partner
Poland’s biggest fitness club chain has become the exclusive fitness partner of both Ekiden – Marathon of Relays and the 45th Nationale-Nederlanden Warsaw Marathon.
Zdrofit supports their customers and educates them in using physical activity to make the most positive impact on general condition, health and body shape, as well as psychological well-being, which all leads to maintaining good life quality.
A team of Zdrofit personal coaches will run the warm-up before the Ekiden – the Marathon of Relays, preparing the runners for a safe start and cheering them up for healthy competition and great fun.
– Zdrofit joining the mass running events organised by the Warsaw Marathon Foundation is another opportunity for promoting physical activity, which we believe pumps life up with a completely new energy – says Daniel Biegaj, marketing and e-commerce director, marketing head of the fitness chain owned by Benefit Systems. We want to inspire both those people who have a high awareness of fitness issues, and all those who are just beginning their adventure with physical exercises. That is why we encourage everyone to exercise at their own pace, as they like and want, adjusting effort to own condition.
Compare to Western European countries and to the very active north of the continent, Polish population still has a low proportion of physically active citizens. This leads to the growing amount of medical problems – obesity, cardiovascular hypertension, diabetes, oncological diseases and mental heaths issues.
We are glad Zdrofit is going to support an event that is so important for passionate runners. Our clubs are an excellent base for their strength and coordination practice – Biegaj adds.
The Zdrofit fitness chain is made up of 84 clubs located in Warsaw (city and greater area), the Tricity, Szczecin, Kielce and Włocławek. The clubs offer highest quality equipment to assure member safety. Zdrofit provides its guests with cardio zones, free weights, cross training and recovery areas.
Zdrofit is distinguished by the largest offer of group fitness classes. Almost 100 practice formats allow for adjusting the classes to the diverse customer needs – from beginners, through dance practice, preventive practice like pilates or “healthy spine”, to intensive metabolic training like intervals or hugely popular bike practice.
– Institutions of amateur sports must support one another and aim at popularising a whole range of activities. Each physical activity is good and their variety impacts our physical and mental development. Zdrofit with their fitness clubs are surely well known to amateur runners. I am really happy we are teaming up. Running should be healthy and passionate, but also wise – and that often calls for more than work on outdoor mileage. We believe that with relentless work and common engagement we will promote sports and healthy lifestyle, encouraging a growing percentage of the population to take up physical activity. Healthy mind in a healthy body! – says Marek Tronina, president of the Warsaw Marathon Foundation.
