COLTS NECK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Holiday shoppers interested in giving the gift of fitness, now have a
hassle-free option thanks to the announcement of a partnership between Retro
Fitness, the nation’s leading low-cost and high value fitness
concept, and Yiftee. Available for purchase online, Yiftee gift cards
can be sent via email, text or Twitter.
“Holiday shoppers will love the ease and convenience of giving a Yiftee
gift card,” said Eric Casaburi, founder and CEO of Retro Fitness.

option year round that helps more people reach their fitness goals.”
Yiftee is the online gift card that can give back – any remaining value

holiday campaign, we knew instantly that it was a match. Retro Fitness
and Yiftee both understand that today’s customers are mobile and on the
go,” said Lori Laub, Yiftee co-founder, Business Development. “By also
offering Retro Fitness eGift Cards on their website, anyone can now
