by | Jan 20, 2023

MuscleSquad, an online fitness equipment store and community, has appointed leading PR agency The PHA Group with a press office brief. The brief spans business profiling, thought leadership, product placement, influencer engagement and case study placement.

MuscleSquad was launched in 2017 by budding entrepreneur Chris Billingham, with a product range that includes treadmills, squat racks, dumbbells and benches, amongst other fitness kit.

During the coronavirus lockdowns – when the nation turned to at-home exercise – demand for MuscleSquad’s full service product offering exploded, as gyms remained shut for months at a time.

Commenting on the appointment, MuscleSquad founder and CEO, Chris Billingham said:

“MuscleSquad’s mission is to encourage health and make fitness accessible to everyone. We want to make it easier for everyone to start on their fitness journey, giving them all the tools and knowledge they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is an exciting time for the business and we look forward to working with PHA to see what we can achieve together.”
