LOS ANGELES– Internationally-renowned Children’s Fitness Centers has joined with RETHINK Brands, launching a unique partnership which offers healthful beverage options in select My Gym locations around the United States including Texas, Maryland, District of Columbia, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey with more locations soon to be announced.
The healthful drinks, currently being offered to kids as free samples in the gyms, is flavored with USDA-certified organic fruit essence and provides just enough flavor to elevate the fun, without all the unnecessary sugar.In addition to RETHINK Water and RETHINK Juice Splash being healthful alternatives to sodas, the cartons are 70 percent FCS-certified paperboard and 100 percent recyclable. RETHINK Juice Splash offers four flavors: watermelon, fruit punch, kiwi strawberry and strawberry lemonade.
“The combined message of fitness and health from the partnership between My Gym and RETHINK Brands is an answer to the growing movement amongst the younger generation,” said Matt Hendison, executive VP of strategic partnerships at My Gym Enterprises.
While My Gym helps children develop the skills, confidence, socialization, and positive self-image needed to become healthy young adults, RETHINK Brands offers healthful, tasty options to sugary sodas in packaging that doesn’t harm the environment.
“RETHINK Brands strives to improve the healthy beverage options available to our children today,” said Todd Fletcher, president of RETHINK Brands “We couldn’t be happier that kids who are exercising at their local My Gym will have access to our beverages, which will add a much needed component to their healthy choices.”
For over 35 years My Gym Children’s Fitness Center has brought fitness and fun to children of all ages. Through the alliance with RETHINK Brands, they are reinforcing their message to kids – fitness and a healthy lifestyle is fun. Hendison added, “Adding samples of RETHINK Brands to select gyms is just the beginning of what we hope will be a full scale roll-out by the end of year, positioning RETHINK as the official beverage of My Gym for years to come!”In addition to free samples of RETHINK Water and RETHINK Juice Splash being available in select My Gym locations, there are coloring sheets and tattoos for kids and coupons for discounts off RETHINK Brands products for moms and dads.
