Emerald Smoke Named a PerkSpot Featured Merchant
MMA Health & Fitness Now Available to PerkSpot Clients
Chicago, IL (May 19, 2011) — Emerald Smoke MMA and Fitness, Chicago’s first and only gym exclusively dedicated to the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), today announced that it has partnered with PerkSpot, the leading provider of specialty benefit and discount programs, as a featured merchant offering discounts to PerkSpot’s client members.
Featuring thousands of discounts from local and national merchants, PerkSpot provides a benefits platform for businesses such as CDW, Lexis Nexis, DirectTV, AirTran and Papa John’s.
By partnering with Emerald Smoke, PerkSpot is now able to provide its client members, through their employer benefits program, with access to Emerald Smoke’s vast array of classes, personal trainers and nutrition partners.
“Emerald Smoke is excited to be the only gym in the PerkSpot program that offers an alternative option to traditional memberships and workouts,” said Collin Williams, Emerald Smoke founder and president. “Now employees participating in PerkSpot corporate wellness programs can take advantage of the health benefits of MMA ― improved strength, balance, agility ― at a discount.”
According to Williams, there’s no denying one of the newest fitness programs sweeping the nation is MMA workouts. No longer just for prize fighters, professional athletes such as Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews, and Regular Joe’s off the street are turning to MMA workouts to get healthy, be active and have fun.
“To improve value for our members, PerkSpot works to partner with merchants who have products or services that we believe will be beneficial to our client members and the overall PerkSpot program,” said Christopher Hill, founder and CEO of PerkSpot. “With the growing interest in MMA and its direct fitness benefits, Emerald Smoke was a logical choice to join our wellness program.”
Emerald Smoke offers an array of classes ranging from MMA, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu series, Muay Thai kickboxing/advanced boxing, CORE, yoga and a kids program.
