Athleticon is a health, fitness and entertainment movement rooted in connection and culture. We can’t wait to have you laughing, sweating, learning and staying motivated throughout the entire year.”
“The power and mission that fuels Athleticon has been driven by Dany Garcia’s unique vision, relentless passion and ability to galvanize and care deeply about the masses we touch,” said Dwayne Johnson. “I’m very proud to partner with her on such a one of kind, epic event that will reach, inspire and transform the masses. Her insight into what our community needs now encouraged us to pivot to developing a free virtual platform that motivates and ignites each and every individual. No time is more important than now to offer these resources and transform access to fitness and wellness, in such a revolutionary way.”
Athleticon’s robust slate will feature continuously-evolving, complimentary content within the spaces of high-performance physical fitness, yoga and dance, mental health and relationships, entertainment and fitness competitions, food and nutrition, and tech and gaming.

The multilateral fitness movement will be strategically amplified across Athleticon’s website, social channels and global digital touchpoints and provide the Athleticon community with the resources to engage with an entirely customizable and personalized experience. The brand, anchored in Garcia and Johnson’s inclusive, audience-first ethos, will bring together tribes of all kinds to be entertained, inspired and achieve greatness together – every single day.
