June 1, 2021

BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Outside Interactive, Inc., the world’s leading creator of active & healthy lifestyle content, events, and experiences, today announced Outside+, the ultimate membership for active and healthy lifestyle enthusiasts that combines all of the Outside brands into a single offering.

Following a series of strategic acquisitions and a rebrand, Outside has aggregated the first and only holistic ecosystem of active lifestyle resources, turning a previously fragmented user experience into a single platform. From premium content and training plans, to adventure sports, streaming videos and event registration, Outside+ fills a long-standing gap in the outdoor, active, and healthy lifestyle industries.

“At Outside, we fundamentally believe the world is a better place if more people are active,” said Robin Thurston, Outside CEO. “An active lifestyle is heavily reliant on digital tools and 24/7 data tracking at all stages – from sleep and workouts to content and nutrition. Outside+ fuels healthy life pursuits by putting active lifestyle participants at the core of the experience.”

Outside owns more than 36 brands, including 20 active and healthy lifestyle publications. During registration, Outside+ subscribers select activities, interests, and brands to curate content that is personalized to them. This is the entry into a full service experience for the active lifestyle enthusiast.
