· Collaboration incentivizes U.S. customers to spend funds from HSA (Health Savings Accounts) and FSA (Flexible Spending Accounts) programs to purchase FORME’s personal training and smart home gyms with pre-tax dollars

AUSTIN, TX – (NewMediaWire) – October 13, 2023 – Interactive Strength Inc. d/b/a FORME (Nasdaq: TRNR), maker of premium smart home gyms and provider of virtual personal training services, announces a strategic partnership with Truemed (True Medicine), a leading healthcare payment provider. This pioneering collaboration enables U.S. customers to spend funds from their HSA (Health Savings Account) and FSA (Flexible Spending Account) programs to access FORME’s cutting-edge wellness solutions, resulting in average after-tax savings between 30% and 40%.
With a shared commitment to help customers invest in their health and wellness, FORME and Truemed have joined forces to provide aligned incentives and access to expert trainers and premium equipment. Users can now conveniently purchase FORME’s innovative smart gym, the Lift, or 1:1 personal training from FORME’s website at checkout, and existing FORME members could potentially benefit from reimbursement for purchases.
Trent Ward, Co-founder and CEO of FORME, commented: “This collaboration represents an important milestone for FORME, as the partnership materially improves the affordability of our offerings, by helping customers benefit from after-tax savings through HSA and FSA programs. Exercise is medicine and I am inspired by the Truemed team’s tireless advocacy of supporting appropriate incentives to help our society achieve and maintain their health. We have doubled down on keeping people healthy through our pending acquisition of CLMBR, and having partners like Truemed makes a big difference.”
