Introducing Roxanne Passarella, Esq. taking hotel gyms into a new generation
SPARBAR, the original pioneer of SPARBAR™ boxing, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and fitness equipment, announces Roxanne Passarella, President and CEO of FantaSea Resorts, to join its international renowned committee of Corporate Board of Advisors.
With Roxanne Passarella, SPARBAR onboarded another powerful woman on its Board Advisory. As president of FantaSea Resorts, Roxanne is running the company's three resorts based in New Jersey, US, and owning the management companies of the hotels.
"The SPARBAR experience will take hotel gyms into a new generation," says the consummate hotel pro. "Gyms in hotels are a must - people want the possibility to work out daily, whether it is on their business trip or during their vacation. This is a known fact in the hotel industry, and gives us a reason to think our hotel gyms and workout activity opportunities further," Roxanne adds.
Two of Roxanne's resorts are based in Atlantic City, where she got introduced to SPARBAR by Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame President & Founder Ray McCline, who has over 30+ years of involvement in the boxing business. "I learned that SPARBAR provides a fun and exciting workout, far from the typical treadmill, " says the mother of 3. „ I was particularly excited to find out it makes boxing accessible to all ages and skill sets - and therefore can become a family activity, " she adds. "In our case, we use the SPARBAR in our home, and especially my 6-year-old hits the SPARBAR every day now. It keeps him moving, which makes me happy. But it also helps you to develop self-defence skills, which you can feel in your body and in your mind. "
FantaSea Resorts are mostly used as family resorts with fully equipped suites with a kitchen and living room, making it a well-rounded family holiday. To bring the boxing trend into the hotels, Roxanne is not only equipping the four hotel gyms, but providing the portable devices in the suites to work out from the hotel room. "It's not only gonna be the first training device to bring in boxing into our gyms, but also serves our customers' need to work out from their room," she says.
About joining the business behind SPARBAR, Roxanne says "It is a highly scalable business, which grows rapidly in the U.S. with testimonials such as Roy Jones Jr, which is one of the biggest fighters in the world. But it is also a company that feels good. UK-based founder Jazz is highly involved in all the social activities around the SPARBAR world, especially with the kids & youth academy. The more this company takes off, the more it is reflected in the social work of the brand. That is where my trust in the company is based upon."
