Fish was tasked with securing top-tier national media placementsfor two of Orangetheory Fitness’ spokespeople — three-time Olympian Lolo Jones and Erin Andrews, a sports broadcaster and Dancing with the Stars host — during media events in NYC. The campaigns coincided with the kickoff of Orangetheory’s national marketing and advertising campaigns in 2016 and 2017.
With January being the perfect time for “New Year, New You” initiatives, Fish wanted to capitalize on the timing to attract the largest share of that audience looking to improve or invest in a new fitness regime. Additionally, given the timeliness of Lolo’s involvement in the 2016 Rio Olympics, as well as the 2017 Super Bowl, which Erin was broadcasting, Fish packaged creative pitches that focused on Lolo’s use of Orangetheory to get in shape for the Olympic games and Orangetheory’s nationwide presence that makes it easy for Erin to
keep up with her fitness when she travels.
The media tours resulted in more than 30 unique, national media placements on top-tier outlets for Lolo Jones, Erin Andrews, and Orangetheory Fitness during the NYC events. Coverage included Good Morning America, CBS This Morning – Live, CBS This Morning Online, CBS News, Fox Business video, Fox Business online, NBC Sports, ESPN W, Shape, Muscle & Fitness, Glamour, Health, AOL BUILD, and Ad Age. Combined, the media coverage reached more than 100 million unique impressions.
Fish also secured countless other national consumer media placements outside of these celebrity spokespeople during its tenure with the brand. Placements include Sports Illustrated, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, the TODAY show, and Fortune, among others.
