The strong synergies between Princess Cruises and Xponential Fitness will create value for all involved in this partnership."
"Our goal is simply to provide the best vacation experiences in the world at the best value, and this exciting partnership aligns the most iconic brand in cruises with Xponential’s unmatched boutique fitness brand portfolio. Whether at your home, your local studio, your stateroom, the ship fitness center, sports court or lido deck, our guests can engage with Pure Barre, Club Pilates, YogaSix, StretchLab, Stride Fitness or any of their favorite fitness experiences," said John Padgett, President of Princess Cruises.
In addition to the in-studio classes offered onboard, Xponential Fitness’ digital subscription, XPLUS, will be made available across Princess’ more than 23,000 staterooms on Princess’ proprietary digital content platform, OceanView. Further, to ensure the onboard experience closely resembles the in-studio experience, Princess will utilize customized equipment packages from Xponential Fitness partners to support its onboard boutique studios and will also make Xponential Fitness merchandise available at its onboard retail stores and on Princess’ industry leading on-demand location-based services platform OceanNow.
All Xponential Fitness brands will be marketed by Princess, including Club Pilates, CycleBar, Pure Barre, Row House, StretchLab, Stride Fitness, YogaSix and AKT to start. Princess guests do not need to be members of an Xponential Fitness brand to partake in onboard classes, but they will be able to continue their experience when returning home through XPASS at exclusive Princess prices.
With operational excellence, OneSpaWorld will deliver these top fitness experiences exclusively to guests on every Princess ship. "We are thrilled to partner with Princess and Xponential to expand our delivery of personalized, custom Princess guest experiences at sea by incorporating the premier Xponential Fitness studio fitness brand content and its market-leading multi-modality programming into our offering," said Leonard Fluxman, CEO, President and Executive Chairman of OneSpaWorld. "Together with the Xponential Fitness team, we will design remarkable Princess-inspired fitness experiences for each Princess guest, continuing our 25-year commitment to innovate and deliver marvelous new guest experiences and memories."
Along with this new offering to cruise goers, as part of the agreement, Princess Cruises becomes Xponential Fitness’ first corporate wellness partner through the Company’s multi-brand subscription offering, XPASS. XPASS will be made available to the cruise line’s more than 30,000 employees at an exclusive discount.
