CHICAGO, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicagoland-based Fitness Formula Clubs (FFC) has been helping Chicagoans achieve their fitness, health and wellness goals since 1984. With 11 locations, eight within the Chicago city limits and three in the near Chicagoland suburbs, FFC is known for its hub and spoke network of locations near train, bus and subway commuter transportation centers.
"Close to Home, Close to Work" has long been the company's tagline, referencing the tried-and-true notion that convenience is key to developing and maintaining a healthy fitness regimen. In the past several years, more people are accessing health and fitness through technology. Mobile devices and apps have brought a whole new meaning to convenience.
With that in mind, and in keeping with two of the company's Core Values, Improvement and Superior Service, FFC has invested in leveraging this type of technology to create the FFC On Demand mobile and website app through our technology partner, Virtual Health Partners.
FFC On Demand allows FFC to expand its services outside the clubs' four walls to bring users exclusive access to virtual fitness, nutrition and lifestyle classes - anywhere, anytime.
The FFC On Demand Essential Package is $14.95/month and features:
- Exclusive group fitness content, so that users (both members and non-members alike) can take an FFC class while on the road for work, traveling with friends or when time is just too tight to make it to the club. This ever-expanding library offers everything from HIIT and strength classes to dance and yoga classes.
- Nutritional content, like recipes and meal plans, including unlimited messages with nutrition specialists.
- Lifestyle content on behavior modification, mindfulness and overall wellness.
- Monitoring tools where users can track food intake, diet adherence and weight loss, plus it integrates with Myzone and other popular fitness trackers.
"Our commitment is to meet the health, fitness and wellness needs of Chicago and the surrounding communities while delivering a consistent overwhelming value proposition at an ultra-convenient location," said Gale Landers, FFC Founder & CEO. "With this launch, ultra-convenience has been redefined. We are thrilled to be able to extend our service offerings with FFC On Demand."
