In a first-of-its-kind offering, P&O Cruises Australia announced today it has expanded its fitness program to include F45 Training (NYSE: FXLV) for guests at sea. As part of the exclusive partnership with P&O Cruises Australia, OneSpaWorld (NASDAQ: OSW), the pre-eminent global provider of health and wellness services and products onboard cruise ships and destination resorts around the world, brought forth the culmination of a global partnership between the two home-grown Australian companies.
The new program, offered daily to all guests, will include the iconic 45-minute functional training classes within the F45 Studio onboard the cruise line’s newest ship Pacific Encounter – currently ported in Brisbane.
Marguerite Fitzgerald, President of Carnival Australia and P&O Cruises Australia said, "We're proud to be the first home-grown cruise brand to partner with such an iconic and popular fitness brand. We know our guests will get so much enjoyment and benefit from being able to do daily F45 fitness classes - and still have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the facilities onboard. We know our guests absolutely love our health, spa and fitness facilities so this offering continues to strengthen our existing product."
Leonard Fluxman, CEO, President, and Executive Chairman of OneSpaWorld said “We are elated to bring an Australian fitness leader and innovator to the Pacific Encounter, enabling us to provide cutting-edge programming to the P&O guests. For over 20 years, we have been providing Australians with spa, fitness, and wellness services and believe that this new elevated fitness experience will add to the incredible offerings P&O has onboard.”
Scott Kinworthy, President of F45 Collegiate and Corporate Network said, “We are delighted to work with OneSpaWorld and P&O Cruises Australia on this exciting new collaboration, bringing F45’s functional, effective, and community-driven workouts to Australian guests. With this partnership, we are committed to finding new and innovative ways to offer what we consider to be the world’s best workout to new and existing F45 members around the world.”
Guests can expect the highly regarded F45 studio – purposefully replicated to provide the familiar look and feel of F45’s land-based studios. The new program has been officially launched. For a seamless experience, classes can be booked online once guests are onboard for a fee, with cruise class packages available.
