Beachbody Co. Group, a Santa Monica-based subscription health and wellness company, posted a 34% uptick in revenue for the first quarter of 2021.
 
The announcement comes ahead of a three-way merger with Forest Road Acquisition Corp. and Myx Fitness Holdings that’s set to close in the second quarter.

 
The combined entity will be named Beachbody Co. and will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under a new ticker symbol, BODY.

 
The transaction, which valued the combined companies at $2.9 billion, was announced in February.


In the first quarter, Beachbody’s $226.2 million in revenue includes $95.2 million in digital subscription sales, a 52% jump, and $131.1 million for nutrition products, a 23% increase compared to the first quarter of 2020. Connecticut-based Myx Fitness’ revenue grew 2,733% to $17 million during the same period.


“Upon the completion of the merger with Forest Road and Myx, we are poised to accelerate growth as we invest the proceeds of the transaction to further unlock value from our unrivaled fitness content library, our large and growing community of subscribers, and synergies through the combination with Myx,” Carl Daikeler, Beachbody’s co-founder, chairman and chief executive, said in a statement.

 
“Today, we have 3.2 million total digital and nutritional subscriptions, a deep content library and a 22-year track record of growth. As we embark on this next chapter, I have never been more excited about the future of our company and the opportunity for us to bring our differentiated health and wellness offering to millions of people worldwide,” he added.
