Virgin Active is fit for everyone in “It all counts” campaign

BigSmall, the agency founded by former WCRS (now House 337) CEO Matt Edwards, has won a place on the Virgin roster and launched a new campaign for its fitness chain, Virgin Active, which aims to make the gym more approachable.

September is apparently a peak month for gym sign-ups, although there are unlikely to be many people looking to up their monthly outgoings right now.

Caroline Macklin, head of brand at Virgin Active said “For many people, joining a gym can feel a little intimidating. With our new ‘It All Counts’ idea we’re on a mission to show people that Virgin Active’s health clubs are for everyone, no matter what their age, motivation or level of fitness.”

Matt Edwards, partner at BigSmall said “Virgin is a brand that any agency would kill to work on. We’ve enjoyed every minute of the project, especially those spent in the luxury spas in the name of background research.”
