“We recognize that this last year has been challenging for the mental and physical wellbeing of our nation. In our effort as a globally recognized health and fitness brand, we have expanded our brand halo to incorporate additional guidance and support to our members,” said Andrew Alfano, CEO of Retro Fitness. “Our newest healthy cooking segment led by Culinary Institute of America Alumni Chef Elizabeth Makos, which airs weekly on the Retro Fitness mobile application, along with our Cobra Membership program which brings at-home and in-gym fitness together in one single and simple membership, now adds Sadhguru’s content and tools to bring about mental clarity, balance as well as support for physical health and wellbeing. The brand halo is continuing to evolve, adding value to our membership. Sadhguru possesses a perspective on life and living that intrigues and challenges us all, and we’re thrilled to be able to share his wisdom and tools with our community and to continue our efforts in creating a healthier America.”
