Quote: “If we’ve encouraged even just one of our clients today, it was a win.”
Though she is relatively new to the company, Brigette Klakring embodies the Gym Source brand. Because Brigette is the Marketing Director, she gets to introduce great products and services to our clients. The role also allows her to connect clients to our equipment experts who can help them meet their fitness goals. How does she do it?
• Print ads
• Email marketing
• Social media
• In-store signage
• Online radio
• And much more
Brigette has a background in marketing, graduating from Loyola University, Maryland and previously working in digital advertising for Gannett, Inc. Gym Source’s people, products and passion lured her to the company. Everyone who works at Gym Source has a real fire for fitness and for giving clients the right equipment and encouragement to meet their goals. Brigette is no exception.
While Brigette helps Gym Source with marketing, Gym Source has encouraged Brigette to step up her fitness goals. “Working at Gym Source definitely holds me more accountable to be active daily. My husband and I enjoy working out together at our local circuit training gym; we consider it couples bonding.”
Brigette works very closely on the marketing team with Chief Marketing Officer, Tom Richard, bringing the Gym Source brand to life and telling the stories of our company and our clients. “Tom is a wonderful mentor. He is very passionate about marketing. He has incredibly high standards for the quality of our work and I love that constant challenge.”
Looking forward to 2016, Brigette is excited about product innovations Gym Source will offer athletes of all kinds. The fitness industry is ever-expanding. Customers need new solutions to old problems and Gym Source is committed to inventive new products to help them, like hybrid treadmill/ellipticals to give runners a low or no impact running option.
Everyone has a reason for being active, a driving goal. Brigette’s reason is to simply be healthy and able to eat her favorite things guilt-free. What’s your reason?
