Run don’t walk – Fishbowl is dishing up sweet discounts to get you moving

If you’re anything like us, you kicked off your ‘holiday eating’ somewhere around November and suddenly, it’s mid-February and you’re facing the stark realisation that the holidays are well and truly over and it’s time to get back on track and maybe reach for a vegetable. In what’s being hailed an Australian first, Fishbowl is rewarding customers for exercising. If you’re looking for a little extra incentive to lace up your runners and pound the pavement, here’s everything you need to know …

While fast-food chains aren’t ordinarily associated with exercise, Fishbowl is not your ordinary fast-food empire. From the outset, Fishbowl’s founders Nathan Dalah, Nic Pestalozzi and Casper Ettelson have been on a mission to change the way we eat by encouraging consumers to make better food-related choices with Japanese-inspired salad bowls loaded with deliciously fresh ingredients. Now, the trio has gone a step further and launched an app that rewards customers for exercising with a discount on their meal. All you need to do to score $5 off your order is to log a 5-km run on fitness app Strava and link it to the new Fishbowl app.

“It’s essentially a virtual weekly run club that anyone of our customers can participate in,” said Fishbowl co-founder Nic Pestalozzi. What’s the catch? The deal is only available on Mondays and Tuesdays, with customers required to complete their run and purchase on those two days. The rationale is to get your week off to a great start with movement and a healthy meal. “We want to get people moving so they can feel their best,” said Nic. “Finding the motivation to exercise can be hard, so that’s why we wanted to provide a little incentive to our customers to keep up their fitness journey.” Fishbowl’s Street Food options start at just $11.90, so add in a $5 discount and you can score lunch for under $7. What a steal!

The RUN 5K, GET $5 OFF deal kicks off this week and runs for six weeks at all of Fishbowl’s locations including Burleigh Heads and Robina Town Centre.
