ZunguZ, a multi-tier mobile payment platform and established offering connected to Facebook, now offers consumers a way to keep in shape and do so through the convenience of S.W.E.A.T. 1000 vouchers – available exclusively from established fitness franchise and provider of Specialised Weight Endurance Aerobics Training (SWEAT).
A creation of fitness guru Steve Uria, S.W.E.A.T. 1000 is a total body workout, formulated over 22 years and based on the assertion of different positive stresses and strains on various factors to the human body. The body cannot get used to or rest at any given time because it is taken through so many different workloads – the slow twitch and the fast twitch muscle ﬁbre is activated – the endurance aspect is activated.
Now people of all backgrounds, ages and levels of fitness can use technology to benefit from the promise made by S.W.E.A.T. 1000 of ‘higher levels of fitness and quality of life’.
As an official affiliate to ZunguZ, S.W.E.A.T. 1000 customers can now purchase workout vouchers and sessions online via ZunguZ.
Steve Uria, Creator of S.W.E.A.T. 1000 says, “Having the most cutting edge workout on the planet partnering with the equivalent in the social media and financial world made perfect sense for our brand. The ease of use and convenience for both our clients and ourselves was a no brainer. With multiple locations on a national and soon international platform we could not have found a better way for all our clients to purchase sessions and packages than from within the Facebook platform. I personally use ZunguZ for many personal transactions too now.”
Executive management at ZunguZ says the relationship in place with S.W.E.A.T. 1000 presents consumers with a new and exciting service.
“Social networking and social media have become inextricably linked with the modern lifestyle. Facebook now has over one billion users worldwide and ZunguZ was one of the first apps to be incorporated into the Facebook app store. This means that we have a direct, reliable and open channel through which users can link up and regulate their lifestyles,” explains Robert Sussman, CEO, ZunguZ.
One of the main advantages of this channel is that lifestyle and fitness enthusiasts do not have to go to S.W.E.A.T. 1000 outlets or take extra time out to organise these sessions.
“It can be booked and paid with one click of a button and users are assured of the highest level of security,” Sussman adds. “These sessions also make great gift ideas for the festive season, so the timing of the offering could not be better.”
