YMCA Victoria and FitnessOnDemand announce Australian first virtual programs
October 16, 2019

YMCA Victoria and FitnessOnDemand have announced a brand-new partnership agreement to deliver world-class virtual fitness programs at YMCA facilities in the state.

An Australian first for the two organisations, the partnership makes YMCA Victoria the first brand to create their own content and partner with FitnessOnDemand (FOD) to deliver premium classes to members throughout YMCA Victoria sites. In addition, YMCA Victoria digital programming: Adrenaline HIT and Mynd Wellness virtual meditations will be used by FOD to reach a broader audience globally with more than 3,500 commercial customers across 30 countries.

Welcoming the partnership, Uday Anumalachetty, FitnessOnDemand’s Divisional Vice President, stated “it’s fantastic to partner with YMCA Victoria – one of the largest YMCA associations in the world and a leading health and wellness brand in Australia. As an enterprise solution, FOD will deliver digital group fitness and wellness classes and content for both on-premise commercial products as well as via off-premise mobile app for the YMCA.

“FitnessOnDemand is designed for organisations just like the YMCA of Victoria – forward thinking, multi-site operators seeking to optimize their member offerings and bring the latest global trends and custom classes to their group fitness and wellness programs.”

Fiona Kriaris, Health and Wellness Product Manager at YMCA Victoria, added “we are 100% committed to improving the health and wellbeing of our communities. We know that embracing this technology and innovation across all gyms will be a game-changer for many of our members.

“This partnership with FOD, will make fitness accessible to our members and help them achieve their health and wellness goals.”

Several YMCA facilities have already undergone upgrades to allow for the unique virtual group fitness programming with more to follow in the coming months.
