By Josh Leve, AFS Founder & CEO
During the past 12 months AFS has undergone a huge transformation. Within that time frame our growth has been extraordinary. We've added more benefits, more partners, and more value that make up a compelling case for membership, including our ROI calculator.
During these past several months, AFS has also traveled across the country, literally - from being headquartered in Chicago to now the Bay Area. Yet with change comes new opportunity. Nearly a year ago Matrix Fitness joined forces with us to become a major supporter of AFS. With new products, services, and programming options for the fitness studio market, our relationship with Matrix has only continued to blossom. And from a personal perspective, I dedicated myself to improving my fitness goals and joined a fitness studio in the East Bay in a town called Piedmont, CA.
FLEX Circuit Gym is a neighborhood studio. In a few thousand square feet, they boast a wide variety of classes, equipment, and a unique circuit platform that makes it easy for one to come in and get a full body workout. I also quickly noticed the quality equipment the owners purchased, including a lot from Matrix. It became apparent that the synergy between fitness studios and their purchasing habits from well-known brands was alive and well.
Soon thereafter, I introduced myself to the the owner and with the support of Matrix, the below video was created. Enjoy!
