“Vitality as a business is founded on a desire to encourage people to take positive steps to improve their health, and through collaboration with elite sporting institutions such as Chelsea FC, we believe we can inspire people from many different backgrounds and levels of fitness to make healthier lifestyle choices.”
Speaking further, Mr Koopowitz said the breadth of the tie-up, which includes the Chelsea Women’s and Academy teams, is “particularly exciting” as it supports the firm’s “commitment to raising awareness of and participation in women’s sport, as well as amongst young people, and at grassroots level”.
