It's official - coming soon in August, Eat The Frog Fitness will be opening inside of the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA in San Diego. 

Mike Gormley, Regional Developer and multi-unit franchisee for Eat The Frog Fitness, is set to open his Encinitas, CA studio inside of the YMCA in August of this year. "We are so proud to partner with an amazing organization like the YMCA", says Mike. "They are one of the top 5 most recognizable brands in the world. The fact that they wanted to partner with us legitimized our brand and our program".

A couple of months ago, the VP of Branch Operations for San Diego county YMCA reached out to get more information about Eat The Frog Fitness. She said that several Eat The Frog Fitness members had referred the brand to her. With the rise of boutique studios and group training, the YMCA was already looking for a solution to provide an elevated experience to their existing member base. 

Eat The Frog Fitness has long been committed to creating a supportive, inclusive environment that motivates members to connect while pursuing their fitness goals through group fitness sessions. The YMCA is an excellent extension of these goals. In the partnership announcement, the YMCA says, "The Y is dedicated to strengthening and uniting our community, and our partners at Eat the Frog Fitness will provide a community-minded, supportive and elevated group fitness experience." 

Studio Manager Jamie set up inside the Ecke YMCA for the pre-sale of Founding Memberships. 

Pre-sale efforts have begun this month, and you can find the team at a booth right outside or inside the Ecke YMCA. While the studio is being built, Eat The Frog Fitness will be offering limited Founding Frog Memberships to lock in the lowest rate ever available, plus other amazing perks.
