ALTERLIFE is the largest and most recognizable chain of gym clubs in Greece. Awarded as Company of the Year & Best Gym Chain at the Fitness Awards 2022 – along with 13 other awards of the event – it is the leader in the fitness industry and is constantly growing in more parts of Greece. It now has 67 clubs in Greece and Cyprus, as well as Alterlife Beauty services & Alterlife Kids.
ALTERLIFE’s goal is the continuous development of the company both in terms of new gym clubs and the maintenance and development of its clientele. At the same time, the company’s permanent goal is top-of-mind awareness of the brand’s vision and ideals, setting standards in the fitness industry & bringing the community closer to a fitness excellence experience.
The real deal
2021-2022, however, was an unprecedented and quite difficult year for both ALTERLIFE and the entire fitness industry, as we had to deal with:
- the difficult transition to the next day, the post-covid era of gyms that has had a huge impact on both the prosperity of the companies and their relationships with their members
- the return to the physical space of the gyms and the transition from the feeling of “numbness”, after a series of long-term restrictive measures, to the feeling of normality throughout a visit by our members
- the strengthening of trust in existing members and the acquisition of new members through the information about the philosophy of ALTERLIFE
- And the continued activity and growth of physical stores
The bar, however, at ALTERLIFE has continued to be set high with the aim of consolidating the brand in the post-covid era and maintaining & growing our membership base and physical stores.

Discovery & Display Campaigns
Remarketing GDN & YouTube Campaigns with corresponding content.
Having effectively used the above channel for advertising, we proceeded in September to create our own profile and design a specially designed calendar/content for the platform, in order to rally the gym-related community.
iv. Email & Viber
Structured communications with personalized content based on the segmentation of our content lists:
- Information about offers
- Supportive based on the needs of the member

Finally, the above branding actions were comprehensively and effectively delivered offline with corresponding spots that played at the same time as our digital campaign.
