Squatz Launches the World’s First All-in-One Virtual Fitness Platform That Connects Friends and Expert Trainers for Personalized Fitness Sessions From…

NEW YORK, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --Squatz, the world's first all-in-one fitness platform that allows fitness consumers and experts to connect, discover, and co-create in-person and virtual training sessions today announced its official launch. Available to users on iOS, Android, and desktop, Squatz connects trainers and clients for both in-person andvirtual fitness sessionsin the most technologically integrated ecosystem built for the fitness industry. With Squatz, users can invite their friends, find new ones, and connect with a community of expert trainers to plan, interact, and train together with live fitness sessions.

Why Now?

This comes at a time when millions of people in the U.S. have no direct access to health and wellness service providers and facilities due to COVID-19. This lack of access has paved the way for one of thelargest M&A deals of the year, the Teledoc and Livongo merger (increasing their combined value from $8.5 billion in early 2020 to almost $37 billion). Consumer demand for fitness-related services is also at an all-time high, with a47% increase in fitness app downloads in Q2 2020(over the previous year). Coupled with the fact that over 400,000 fitness trainers in the U.S. alone have also been affected by COVID-19, the time is right to provide a solution that focuses on connecting trainers to consumers.

"The shift towardson-demand and virtual fitnessis a trend that is here to stay. Squatz is the world's first all-in-onefitness solution that taps into the power of the sharing economy to make fitness truly accessible for everyone,"says Scot Carlson, Squatzco-founderand CEO.

How It Works

Squatz provides free access to a worldwide marketplace of fitness coaches and clients. With everything built in, trainers can easily leverage their free time and market their expertise to an unlimited customer base seeking flexible and safe virtual/ alternative fitness solutions.

Unlike other fitness apps, Squatz is an all-in-onefitness appwith a built-in suite of tools to make fitness accessible to everyone, while giving power back to the individual trainer. Squatz presents each customer with a curated list of trainers - automatically "smart-matched"to the customer's needs.

Customers can also discover new workout partners, co-create their own workouts, and easily share, rate, and recommend their favorite trainers. Additionally, Squatz's built-in safety measures and reinforcements have been created for fitness in an era of COVID-19.

2020 has become the most definitive year for the fitness industry; the need for a comprehensive and open-source platform has never been greater.Squatz plans to lead the charge in creating the future of fitness.

Fountain Spa & Fitness Center to Offer Families and Individuals a Safe Place to Work Out, Unwind and Recharge – Massachusetts Newswire

RAMSEY, N.J., Sep 23, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) The award-winning Fountain Spa, a Bergen county family-owned business, announces the Grand Opening and expansion of its location in Ramsey, New Jersey to become The Fountain Spa & Fitness Center, opened to the public for membership sales, tours and workouts on September 21, 2020.

When the pandemic hit and New York Sports Club gave us notice that they were closing their Ramsey location, we knew exactly what to do. We had been trying to take over that club for ages and restore it back to its original condition as an upscale club, says Rita A. Knutsen, CEO & Founder.

Our neighbors and community are in dire need of a community center, a safe place where families and friends can enjoy time together, get fit, get out of the house and recharge in a safe, clean, comfortable and friendly environment while being able to follow all New Jersey State Guidelines, Knutsen continues.

The Knutsen family opened one of the very first state-of-the-art fitness facilities in Bergen County as Quest 1 in 1976 in this exact location. Now, they are using more than three decades of industry experience in opening Fountain Spa & Fitness Center offering total wellness, fitness and recreational programs in a sanitary, newly renovated, high-quality, relaxed environment. The family has ensured that Fountain Fitness continues to carry out the long-standing family tradition of clean, safe, warm and welcoming services.

The Fountain Spa & Fitness Center will serve its community members with an unparalleled health and wellness experience in a close and convenient location. The 50,000 square-foot destination will provide everything members could dream of in the areas of healthy living and sports for individuals of all ages at an affordable rate.

There are no other fitness facilities with comparable offerings to what Fountain Fitness is delivering, especially the deep focus in youth programming such as soccer and basketball clinics, sports, personal training, and adult leagues. The updated facility includes a large, well-ventilated, high-ceiling cardio and main gym floor, 12,000 square foot indoor turf field, indoor basketball courts, and outside fields. Additional highlights include an indoor aquatic center with a pool, functional strength training spaces, large group exercise rooms, cycle, yoga and Pilates studios.

Fountain Fitness will also offer both private and group swim lessons, summer and vacation camps, after-school programs, ninja warrior, Mommy & Me classes, and toddler time, all led certified experts committed to childhood development.

The Fountain Spa & Fitness Center offers plenty of space for corporate functions, parties like Bar Mitzvahs and Sweet Sixteens, or kids birthday parties. Its the perfect place for individuals looking to work out or families looking for a day out.

Located adjacent to The Fountain Spa, Fitness members not only enjoy the benefits of the gym, but also get discounts and access to many Fountain Spa services. The Spa offers therapeutic and relaxing massage, facials and skincare by expert aestheticians, full-service hair, nails, and is open to both members and non-members.

The Fountain Spa & Fitness Center will be open 7 days a week. A range of memberships are available for individuals, couples and families. For more information about The Fountain Fitness Center, visit or stop in for a tour!

A dedicated family

The Fountain Spa Ramsey location was built in 1976 and originally opened as Ramsey Racquet Club, owned by the Knutsen Family. In 1981, the building was expanded to include the pool and the upscale health club Quest 1. The multi-generation family-owned organization was started as a mission and vision to deliver sports, fitness, and resort-style day spa and experiences close to home for Bergen and Rockland county residents. The Knutsen Family also owns and operates Jeffs Quest Health Club and Quest Tennis in Mahwah, STAR Sports in Ramsey in addition to the award-winning Fountain Spas in both Ramsey and at the Shops at Riverside in Hackensack, New Jersey. The family has a long heritage of innovating and providing unique health and wellness services for the communities in which they operate.

Unite Fitness Is Turning the 23rd Street Armory into a Huge Socially-Distanced Gym – Philadelphia magazine


The local boutique fitness studio is transforming the 14,000-square-foot building into a group workout space for 24 attendees at a time.

Unite Fitness will be turning the 23rd Street Armory into a huge gym. | Photo courtesy Unite Fitness.

This past year has been, to say the least, a challenging time for Phillys previously thriving fitness scene. Were seeing beloved stalwart studios sadly close, national brands declare bankruptcy, new ones open, and the ones that remain afloat trying new tactics to remain nimble, hoping to somehow keep their businesses going while also keeping their members healthy.

One such new tactic comes from Unite Fitness, a fixture on the Philly fitness scene since it was founded by Gavin McKay in 2007. Unite specializes in energetic HIIT workouts that provide a mix of cardio, strength and recovery training. Before the pandemic, their studios were full of fun perks like cold brew coffee and kombucha on tap, plush towel service, and sweet-smelling shower products for after your sweat session.

But the perks (a smart add-on to compete with those offered by chain HIIT competitors like Barrys and EverybodyFights) werent what kept people coming back; the homegrown brand has a cadre of enthusiastic instructors and devoted members that have been training with them for over a decade.

Like all fitness studios, Unite has been trying to adapt and survive since the spread of COVID-19. To stay safe, theyve been offering virtual classes through their live and on-demand platform, which launched in late summer, as well as outdoor classes in locations around the city. And now, theyre trying a (quite large) new tactic. As of October, theyre taking over the 14,000 square feet of the 23rd Street Armory, so that they can provide safe, socially distant workouts in a new location as the seasons change.

The 23rd Street Armory (22 South 23rd Street) is usually host to large entertainment events and weddings. Whats particularly interesting about this space is that its classified as an indoor and outdoor event space its got two huge doors and multiple industrial vents. That means the guidelines theyre adhering to are for outdoor gatherings which is why they can manage and promote 24 people per class instead of ten people per class, the city-mandated requirement for indoor workouts in small boutique fitness studios. Its also likely a mutually beneficial agreement between Unite and the Armory, since large weddings are not the order of the day in coronavirus times.

The HIIT strength classes will consist of a strength series, paired with HIIT cardio bursts similar to our Unite Pump classes when we were in the studio, explains Mark Donohue, Unites director of branding and marketing. Unite is not moving in its typical treadmills and spin bikes to the Armory just yet but they hope to down the line, Donohue says.

In addition to the inherent airflow benefits of the space, Unite is taking the following measures to ensure safety and adherence to all local, state and national health ordinances:

Our team has worked tirelessly since the start of the pandemic to bring the safest, most effective workout possible to our members no matter what the format, said McKay, founder of Unite. If youre a member (or want to become one) you can look for their classes at the Armory starting October 1st. Get more information about membership, class pricing and the schedule here.

As our fitness brands continue to face changing norms and unprecedented challenges, theyre continuing to look for new ways to evolve Unites latest move is just one more example of that evolution. And weve got to hand it to them it seems like a pretty brilliant move to us.

Students and fitness leaders find creative ways to stay in shape – The State Press

Sun Devil Fitness Complexes will be expanding outdoor activities and esports activities

ASU students continue to be active as they work out at the Sun Devil Fitness Center fields on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2020, before the gym reopened.

On-campus fitness centers opened last week from a COVID-19 hiatus with extra safety precautions, familiar classes and new approaches to the traditional workout activities.

Sun Devil Fitness Complexes across all four campuses opened, but with a few caveats: Reservations are necessary, proof of a daily health check submission is required and gym goers should expect to sanitize all equipment before and after use.

READ MORE: On-campus fitness centers reopen for reservations

With the opening of the complexes we have implemented a reservation system for all our facilities, equipment and programs, said Nicholas Deponte, SDFC Tempe assistant director. (This) system allows us to ensure that students will have plenty of space to maintain physical distancing.

Students can participate in outdoor workouts by the SDFC in Tempe and join indoor group wellness classes, so long as they registered for the class beforehand, which can be found on Sun Devil Fitness' online page. All classes are free for ASU students.

Riley Brewer, a freshman studying global studies, said she went to a fitness class, and everyone was wearing masks and the yoga mats were spaced out nicely.

It was a ton of fun, and I felt safe the whole time with the safety measures taken, Brewer said. I absolutely plan on going again and not just for the killer ab workout, but for the stress relief and community.

Deponte said the SDFC is looking at expanding its outdoor classes as cooler weather approaches.

For indoor Group Wellness we have moved a majority of our in-person classes to larger gym space, Deponte said. In those spaces we are limiting capacity to to 35 and ensuring patrons will have at least 10 feet between each other the whole exercise.

Students can also book appointments with personal trainers who feel comfortable meeting in person, Deponte said.

Our personal trainers are very excited to be able to get back to seeing their clients and training in person, Deponte said. Trainers have been able to do a lot of online and virtual training.

For students who didn't return to campus or just don't want to go to a gym Live Well at ASU has numerous online classes: Yoga, High Intensity Interval Training, Pilates, Strength, Booty workouts, Energizer and Every Minute On The Minute.

Some intramural sports, such as pickleball and badminton, are also back in action.

Daniel Gaytan, the assistant director of sports programs for the SDFC, said in-person events vary by campus based on what the students are wanting.

Gaytan said the SDFC will be continuing with "Friday Night Lights" at the Tempe and Polytechnic campuses, an event held every Friday.

Friday Night Lights is a big drop-in opportunity for our students, Gaytan said. Well set up a bunch of different lawn games on our field spaces and just allow students to drop-in, meet some new people, get a little competitive spirit and play some corn hole, badminton or whatever activities we have set up there.

Zachary Gentz, the sports program coordinator at the Polytechnic campus's fitness center, said one of their biggest challenges has been trying to reimagine traditional sports to exist within the current guidelines. This challenge led to the creation of the golf sports.

If youre not familiar with our golf sports concept, its really interesting," Gentz said in a written statement. "For example, we have foot golf. You play golf with a soccer ball and you hit with your foot just like soccer. So the mechanics of how people play soccer and the scoring rules are golf."

Gaytan also said the SDFC has interest in expanding the number of video games they are currently offering. He said they are looking into adding mainly sports games such as Madden 21, NBA 2K21, FIFA 21, MLB The Show and PGA Tour 2K21.

Were really open to doing a lot of different activities from an esports standpoint, Gaytan said. Were just trying to stay away from the mature games. Theyre the ones that are typically not as conducive to a safe environment.

As for team sports such as basketball, volleyball and flag football, Gaytan said he wishes they had a timeline for their return, "but there just isnt one at this point.

Were definitely following guidelines from ASU on that front," Gaytan said.

Womens Fitness Tips: 3 Reasons you need to add squats to your workout routine –

By: Rachel Bleier September 25, 2020

There's a lot of overlap between squats and the golf swing.

Getty Images

Youve probably heard how important a strong, stable lower body is for golfers. Women in particular need to build strength in their lower bodies to help them generate more power in their swing. So how do you build the strength you need to send it off the tee?


Take Lexi Thompsons athletic swing as an example. Her swing is the result of years of training and hours in the gym, but theres one exercise she almost almost always includes in her workouts you guessed it, squats. Its no coincidence that the best players in the game are using this exercise to power up their golf swings. Heres why you should follow their lead.

Stand up and try to squat down as low as you can, then stand back up. Take note of the muscles that you felt working as you performed the squat. Now get into your posture at address and mime your golf swing, paying attention to the muscles you feel working. Did you feel any similarities?

In both movements, you should have felt your quads, hip flexors and glutes working hard to stabilize your body. A strong, stable lower body is crucial for maintaining your posture through the golf swing, as well as for generating power.

Adding squats to your workouts not only strengthens these muscles, but also improves your ability to perform under fatigue (read: swing a club well for 18 holes of golf). As you are able to squat with better technique and more weight, you will build strength and trust in your bodys ability to perform no matter what. A winning formula on the golf course.

You start the golf swing standing up. As you come through the downswing, you lower your body to get the clubhead to the golf ball.

The squat mimics this high-to-low movement pattern, and you know what they say about practice making perfect.

Whats more, adding weight to your squats trains your body to perform under stress and load. Being able to squat well with added weight means youll understand how to move your body through your golf swing in high-pressure situations as well. And we all know confidence can make or break a round of golf.

Ever hear of using the ground to generate power in the golf swing? In golf, this is also known as ground force reaction and it can help you explode through the ball.

To do a squat, you lower your body down by pushing your hips back and bending your knees. To lift yourself out of the bottom of your squat, you might think youre just standing up, but what youre really doing is pushing the ground away from yourself to force yourself back up. Sound familiar yet?

Squats are a great way to teach yourself how to push against the ground the same way you would in your swing to generate power. So if you really want to add yards to your swing, you have to add squats to your workout routine.
