COLTS NECK, N.J., June 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The nation's leading low-cost, high-value fitness franchise concept, Retro Fitness, is celebrating Father's Day by offering free workouts to all members' dads June 14-16, 2013. Available at all participating locations, each father simply needs to show a picture with his children to a Retro Fitness staff member in order to qualify for the free workouts.
"Several of my fondest memories with my dad are times we've spent working out together," said Eric Casaburi, founder and CEO of Retro Fitness. "Now, with four kids of my own, I try to set a good example for my children when it comes to health and fitness. It would mean so much to me if more families worked out together, and Father's Day is the perfect time to start."
Parents that engage in exercise, as well as motivate their kids to do the same, are less likely to have overweight children, according to a recent study done by the University of Alberta, one of Canada's largest research-intensive Universities. Retro Fitness urges families to work out together since it not only encourages healthy habits, but it is also a great way for families to bond and have a little bit of fun together.
Retro Fitness clubs blend vibrant color schemes into a fun, energetic atmosphere where gym members can comfortably meet their fitness goals. With an affordable monthly membership of just $19.99, Retro Fitness gym members have access to a full-collection of top-of-the-line equipment, cardio machines complete with individualized LCD television monitors, a full-service RetroBlends juice bar, personal training, tanning, locker rooms, and child sitting. Members can also work up a sweat in the popular RetroTheatre that houses cardio equipment such as treadmills, ellipticals and recumbent bikes, all arranged in a movie-theatre like setting, and plays movies on a gigantic screen throughout the day.
