Rain the Growth Agency has partnered with home fitness equipment leader Horizon Fitness, expanding the company’s direct-to-consumer marketing efforts with a new TV creative and media campaign. Horizon Fitness is a leading provider of cardio fitness solutions sold online and through retail partners including Dick’s Sporting Goods and Johnson Fitness & Wellness stores. With Covid-19, the company is refocusing on DTC sales, expanding to TV for the first time after previously marketing exclusively via paid digital channels.

Rain the Growth Agency brings a legacy of DTC marketing expertise in-home fitness to this media and creative campaign, having previously worked with industry leaders Total Gym, NordicTrack, Perfect Fitness, and Peloton. Horizon Fitness introduces this new campaign with a late January launch, as DTC fitness companies endure an increased demand for equipment. 

Mike Olson, Executive Vice President of Sporting Goods and E-commerce at Horizon Fitness explains that “more people than ever are choosing to exercise at home and are looking for equipment that can accommodate multiple family members and all of the devices, streaming classes, and apps they bring to their workout. We’re excited to partner with the innovative team at Rain the Growth Agency to introduce how Horizon is rethinking exercise equipment for a better-connected fitness experience.”

The new creative features footage of the Horizon Fitness Studio Series treadmill line shot by Rain the Growth Agency amidst Covid-19 precautions. Filmed in the Portland-metro area during the September 2020 Oregon wildfires, the team faced challenges filming over an accelerated timeline. “We pivoted, never gave up, executed, and delivered a powerful transactional brand-building creative,” said Sue Collin’s Chief Client Officer at Rain the Growth Agency. The campaign rolls out in the heat of the Q1 peak season for the fitness industry.
