Meredith's SHAPE Partners With obé Fitness To Launch New Year Workout
Program 21 Jump Start to Kick Off 2021

NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Meredith Corporation's (NYSE: MDP) SHAPE, the definitive resource and authoritative voice for active wellness, and obé Fitness, the premium fitness platform, offering immersive, live virtual workouts, have teamed up to deliver 21 Jump Start, a high-energy, easy-to-follow 21-day workout program curated by SHAPE editors and obé trainers. From cardio boxing and detox yoga flows to express abs and everything in between, the program includes access to obé's library of 5,000+ workouts, SHAPE's weekly Instagram live series and other features to set up users for success.

"If 2020 taught us anything, it's that fitness doesn't have to be complicated. We learned that high-tech gear isn't needed to get a good workout, just a mat and some motivation to get moving," says Sade Strehlke, SHAPE Digital Director. "We're thrilled to be partnering with obé Fitness, the top at-home workout company, to provide a program that will prepare our consumers to take on whatever 2021 has to offer."

Upon joining the program, participants redeem a free, first month of obé Fitness with access to its library of 5,000+ workouts and over 100 live classes per week across cardio, strength training, HIIT and more. Members are encouraged to join SHAPE's Goal Crushers Facebook Group to serve as an accountability squad where participants can support one another through the struggles and celebrate the little and big wins of living a fit and healthy lifestyle. In addition, the program offers a custom accountability and progress tracker to monitor improvement through completed classes while reminding participants to stay hydrated and include mindfulness activities as part of their overall health journey.
