Eleazar Kauderer Sponsors Basketball Dreams as the USA Best AAU Compete for Glory at World’s Biggest Streetball Quai 54 Championship in Paris

Basketball Dreams

Eleazar (Ele) Kauderer, CEO of Tiger Marketing and Branding Agency (“Tiger”), and Dalmorlie Williamson, Assistant Director of the Rising Stars Youth Organization (“Rising Stars”), together, are proud to announce Kauderer’s sponsorship of “Team USA Select”, an Amateur Athletic Union (“AAU”) traveling basketball all-star team drawn, in part, from Williamson’s Rising Stars. Kauderer’s sponsorship will help to fund Team USA Select’s pursuit of greatness at the iconic “Quai 54” streetball tournament under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, this summer. Quai 54, known globally as the world’s biggest streetball tournament championship event, will take place in early July. Every team competing at the event will be full of talented kids—from amateurs off the streets to current NBA stars—ready to leave everything on the court for global recognition in a direct-elimination process. The Team USA Select is an AAU traveling basketball team with roots in Ele Kauderer’s and Williamson’s efforts going back over a decade to found and sustain a NYC basketball program capable of stoking the hopes and dreams of talented kids from underserved neighborhoods. Kauderer commented on his sponsorship of the team in 2023: “These kids mean the world to me. Malie [Williamson] and I have been involved for long enough to see the longitudinal data—to see lives change and doorways open—and to see the results of that progress years later. I don’t think anything I have been involved with over the years has been such a source of pride and joy as this program has, and I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to make a fresh difference in 2023.” Kauderer continues, “In conjunction with my Not for Profit Organization Youth Empowerment & Success I’ve created a Go Fund Me Link for anyone who wants to be a part of making these boys Dreams come to reality as well as give global visibility to those who want to be a part of something so great! Because no matter what you make or what you do, if you don’t look to help those around you get better, stronger, more successful and achieve their dreams, you’ve not even made a blip in the time you’ve spent living your own life.” https://gofund.me/d0f6250d Ele Kauderer, a New York businessman, has been involved in international business, investment banking, marketing, branding, and public relations for nearly 25 years. He implemented television and radio marketing campaigns, production of commercials, national product launches, public relations for both private and public companies as well as political campaigns. A passionate supporter of youth and community causes, Ele has worked as a coach, mentor, and philanthropist, helping to drive opportunity pathways for underserved kids through multiple channels, including non-profit basketball programs leveraging the team sports model to bring kids and teens of all stripes together to compete in championship-level events. Dalmorlie Williamson has over 15 years of experience in youth basketball. During that time, he has worked as a high school basketball coach, an assistant director and coach for the D1 Stars AAU program, and a leader in the Rising Stars Youth organization. “Malie is on a mission in life to remove false ceilings for serious talent—to see driven young athletes leverage their God-given skills and their sense of determination to open up opportunities like a top-tier college education or a path into the pro sports marketplace,” added Kauderer. “Not only does he have a gift for spotting the genuine article—next-level talent—but he knows what it takes to translate that kind of rare gift into a real opportunity in the Show. He has special insight into these kids, and a lot of people know it. But he also has a heart of gold. He’s a true inspiration, and I’m grateful to be involved.” (Sponsor Team USA Select at the QUAI 54 in France & help pave the way for our next generation of success https://gofund.me/d0f6250d ) Related links: www.EleazarKauderer.com www.quai54.com www.aauboysbasketball.org Contact Details Mark McKelvie +1 585-301-7700 markrmckelvie@gmail.com

How This Digital Fitness Company (New IPO On Nasdaq) Is Differentiated Through Delivering The Industry’s First At-Home Personal Training Offering

FORME

By David Willey, Benzinga A new health and fitness company just joined the stock exchange, and it is looking to shake up the digital fitness sector. FORME (NASDAQ: TRNR) just completed an initial public offering (IPO) and is delivering a new product offering to the fitness industry through virtual, live personal training. FORME is solving key problems in the industry through offering a differentiated service with at-home, digital 1:1 personal training and coaching delivered through its award-winning smart home gyms. There are compelling market trends in the digital fitness industry, which has seen steady growth driven by increased participation in health and wellness activities. According to FORME’s S-1 filing with the SEC, the Global Wellness Institute estimated that total global spending in the wellness industry in 2020 was $4.4 trillion, of which approximately $740 billion was spent on fitness and other categories of wellness, including yoga, barre, and Pilates. According to FORME’s research, the Company believes its total addressable market (TAM) includes nearly 10 million households, representing total potential revenue of $18 billion, all of which is in the United States. According to the most recent data, there are 64 million gym memberships in the US alone. The fitness market experienced a seismic change during the pandemic and experienced a shift away from brick-and-mortar structures during the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of users who accessed online fitness training went from 7% to 80% between 2019 and 2020, according to data from Mindbody cited by FORME in its NASDAQ filing. The global online/virtual fitness market size grew from $15.65 billion in 2022 to $21.82 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39.4%. The United States represents the largest segment of the rapidly expanding online fitness market. FORME looks to be tapping into this shift toward digital health with its innovative digital fitness platform focused on the industry’s first 1:1 personal training model. The company offers an immersive fitness environment through its app and award-winning smart gym mirrors. FORME has recruited world-class trainers from highly recognized names in the industry such as Equinox, Peloton, and Exos, which provide members live 1:1 training through its digital platform. The company has already won multiple awards for its mirror hardware, including the Men's Health Home Gym Award 2023, as well as the Shape Best In Fitness award for Best Large Home Gym Equipment 2023. Its comprehensive products make guided fitness training more affordable and convenient for users. Its personal training service offering is $149 per month, and Live 1:1 personal training programs are sold separately as an upgrade for $63 per session ($250 for a 4-pack). All Members participating in personal training have access to a VOD video library for free, or it can be purchased separately for $49 per month. Luxury Digital Fitness Health Market IPO is Now Complete: Invest in New, Next Generation Digital Health The company entered the publicly-traded digital fitness sector with an IPO led by Aegis Capital priced at $8.00 a share, offering 1.5 million shares for gross proceeds equalling $12 million. Other companies in the digital fitness sector include Lululemon Athletica Inc. (NASDAQ: LULU), Peloton Interactive Inc. (NASDAQ: PTON), and Xponential Fitness, Inc. (NYSE: XPOF). The company’s premium coaching and hardware products position it in a market with high margins. Luxury fitness memberships (defined as anything over $100/month) account for 32% of total memberships but 70% of revenue. As people have more disposable income, they often reportedly tend to choose to use it on things like health and fitness. The personal training offered makes FORME a premium service, and the company says it generates three times higher annual recurring revenue per customer than comparable competitors. As per the company, the membership mix for FORME means that on average one FORME customer generates the same revenue as three Tonal users and four Peloton customers. One strength of the model FORME touts is offering expert trainers, which is the industry’s first company to do so. A Membership from the Company provides users with live 1:1 training sessions from world-class trainers through FORME’s virtual platform. This can not only provide excellent quality training to members, but it also may help ensure a more stable work environment for its trainers that enables FORME to more than double the utilization capacity for its training staff. This can be contrasted with the comments of one trainer working for luxury fitness company Equinox, who famously compared the unpleasant long hours and low pay conditions at Equinox to “Hunger Games”. Strength training remains a top trend in fitness, and FORME has positioned itself in the strength training market through its newest addition, the FORME Studio Lift connected hardware device. Access to strength training used to put people off because of the burdensome cost and logistical difficulty of getting access to a training environment. FORME seems to have overcome both of these difficulties with its all-in-one, immersive fitness platform. FORME also offers corporate memberships, and it can be an attractive integrated solution for businesses looking to offer employees comprehensive health support. FORME has also established partnerships with sports, telemedicine, and physical therapy companies, and it is expanding its ecosystem as it finds more opportunities for its high-quality fitness services.
