Here at Chuze, we consider every single person who is part of our fitness community — members and team members alike — to be family. Why? Because to us, family is built on the importance of how we respect one another, how we show up for one another, and how we move through the world together. And that’s exactly the kind of community we strive to nurture at Chuze.
To kick off this year, we dug into our family culture to celebrate you, our Chuze fam, and to thank you for continuing to choose Chuze as your home away from home.
Our (Family) Members
Of course, without y-o-u, we wouldn’t be where we are today. In January, we asked our members why Chuze feels like family. Here’s what you had to say!
Many of you mentioned our incredible team. From the front desk to our CEO, it is essential to all of us to make your visit (whether in-person or virtual) special. And, in all honesty, we love doing it. Saying hello, giving air-fives, and learning about your life is one of the best parts of our jobs. You make our days more inspiring just by walking in the door or showing up virtually.
Other members mentioned that Chuze is a special place to bring their family. With a Kids Club at many of our locations to look after your little ones while you take some time for self-care, equipment for your favorite workout, instructors and coaches who love to teach you in-class and online, we are glad to be an extension of your home.
iChuze In Your Living Room
Nothing says family time quite like an evening of fun and laughter (and fitness! — okay, we might be a little biased) in your living room. Our team wanted to spend some time with you, so we hosted a free live-streamed workout with our incredible instructor, Xanny, and her family on iChuze Fitness. This no-equipment-required, good-for-all-fitness-levels workout was an absolute blast. Xanny, her mother, father, and sons all helped lead us through some calorie-blasting fun—and you can still access it for free with our 7-day trial.
Go ahead. Lace up your sneakers and sweat it out right at home with your Chuze family! (Click below)
Donation To Meals On Wheels
It wouldn’t be a family celebration without working to help others. Our January App Raffle was for a donation to Meals On Wheels. By donating Chuze rewards points to this worthy cause, members were entered to win a gift card for iChuze Fitness ($240 value) and Postmates ($200 value).
Our lucky winner, Josh K, entered over 40 times! We are so happy for Josh and his wife and look forward to having them join us on iChuze Fitness for the next year.
From The Family Who Started It All
We are a family-owned business, and the family that started it all sent out a special message to celebrate family with us. Our CEO, Cory Brightwell, and COO, Nick Barshick, (delivered by the same doctor, surprisingly enough) reminisce with Melissa Sowell, CAO, about our first club in Carlsbad, CA and their exhausting experience on the very first day, to where we are now.
We will leave you with words from Nick Barshick:
“What’s been very special for all of us to see is how all of you—our members and our staff—haven’t just become like family, you’ve become our family. Our big Chuze family.
And you’ve stuck with us for 12 years—most particularly through this last year of 2020, which has been so unbelievably difficult for all of us—and that’s what family does.“
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to our wonderful members and team members for being part of this Chuze family.
