Brookstone Sees the Future of Wireless Music, and its Name is "The Fitness Marshall"

MERRIMACK, NH--(Marketwired - May 10, 2017) - Innovative product developer and specialty retailer Brookstone announced it has sponsored a new cardio dance video by fast-rising YouTube sensation The Fitness Marshall. The video stars Caleb Marshall (AKA "The Fitness Marshall") and self-proclaimed "Backup Booty's" Haley Jordan and Bria McCarty in an over-the-top cardio dance workout to Sia's "Move Your Body." The routine was shot in NYC's Central Park and features Brookstone's Big Blue Party Indoor-Outdoor Wireless Speaker.

"We discovered The Fitness Marshall on YouTube, and couldn't stop sharing his videos at work," said Brookstone Chief Marketing Officer Kiran Smith. "We started dancing along, played them really loud through our Big Blue Party Speakers, and knew that shared viewing of YouTube videos was going to be a big part of the future for wireless audio. We also wanted Brookstone to somehow be a part of this movement to make working out really fun."

"What I love most about our Big Blue Party outdoor speakers is how often I see them out in the wild at track meets, lacrosse games and anywhere people are gathered outside," said Brookstone Audio Category Merchant Chris Netterwald. "Having The Fitness Marshall use it in an outdoor workout in Central Park is just awesome."

The Big Blue Party Indoor-Outdoor Wireless Speaker comes in two versions. Both pair via Bluetooth® wireless smartphones or other devices. A new Big Blue Party with Chromecast built-in can also connect to any Wi-Fi® network and stream music directly from the user's favorite apps such as Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music and iHeart Radio. With Multi-room sync, multiple Chromecast-enabled speakers can be grouped together to play the same song throughout the house or different music in every room.

About The Fitness Marshall

Born and raised in Indiana, Caleb grew up with a love for dance. As an adult he auditioned to be a cardio instructor at his local gym and immediately began building a following or rabid fans who lined up around the block to get into his classes.

Caleb soon began posting his cardio concert videos on his YouTube channel, "The Fitness Marshall", and has since grown a following of 900,000+ subscribers and over 160 million views.

Unlike other fitness trends that involve complicated equipment or crazy diets/workout routines, The Fitness Marshall is for regular people who just want to feel great about themselves and sweat while they're at it. Anyone can join in and dance along in person at their live events or online via YouTube.
