COLTS NECK, N.J., Aug. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Eric Casaburi, CEO and founder of Retro Fitness, is known for telling it like it is. His signature New Jersey "shoot-you-straight" style, boundless energy and business savvy have boded Casaburi well in business. Since founding the concept during the recession at the age of 23, Retro Fitness has grown into a $150M a year franchise, boasting half a million members in more than 155 U.S. locations. 

Now, through his recently launched two-part online video series, The Weigh-In and The Weekly Gain, Casaburi blends his passion for entrepreneurism and fitness, giving viewers his unvarnished advice on business and life. They also get a rare glimpse into the day-to-day personal and professional life of a modern-day CEO.

The Weigh-In is a business focused Q&A show where Casaburi provides unfiltered and practical advice while outlining strategic tactics for any kind of business owner.

In addition, some episodes include guests, such as Miss U.S.A. runner-up and last year's Miss New Jersey Chhavi Verg who made a special appearance on The Weigh-In and YouTube and Instagram fitness personality Robert Frank stopped by.

You get a real guy hustling to innovate, keep franchisees successful and stay in peak physical condition. The audience gets a glimpse into running a multi-million dollar company while making tough decisions – and making great things happen. My goal is to teach and inspire. If viewers are entertained in the process, God bless."
