RMG Networks Expands Fitness Network partnership with REACH Sports Marketing Group

RMG Networks (RMG) and REACH Sports Marketing Group (REACH) announced a partnership allowing RMG to bundle both companies’ health club media assets and increasing the scale of RMG’s Fitness Entertainment Network to 900 clubs and 17 million monthly viewers. This new inventory also allows RMG to offer brands a localized health club media solution that is targetable by DMA.

“This new partnership with REACH Sports Marketing Group substantially increases the size of RMG’s footprint in the health club media space. The combined network allows us to deliver over 17 million monthly viewers,” said David Bruce, EVP, Media Products and Partnerships, RMG Networks. “Advertisers have repeatedly asked for a health club media product that could be targeted regionally or by DMA and this partnership allows us to provide that.”

“We’re excited to partner with RMG and are excited to offer brands more reach. Like RMG’s Fitness Entertainment Network, the REACH Network engages club members with full sight, sound and motion ad units,” added Marc Kline, Co-Founder, REACH Sports Marketing Group.

RMG’s Fitness Entertainment delivers broadcast advertising units within LIVE cable television shown in the cardio areas of health clubs across the US. Adding the REACH Sports Marketing Group’s inventory increases the number of impressions and allows advertisers to target campaigns regionally.
