Mypersonalpet: the new social-first editorial brand for pet lovers

An Instagram profile and website completely dedicated to the well-being of pets and their lovers.

The platform of Mypersonaltrainer, a brand leader in health and wellness, has now expanded with Mypersonalpet, the new digital world — social network and website — designed for all animal lovers.

Pets are a source of well-being, contributing to improved quality of life, and they are now considered actual members of the family.

The growth of the pet market, which was also accelerated by the pandemic, has led to a parallel increase in the need for information, news, and guides on various aspects of their health and well-being.

Mypersonalpet aims to meet the desire for information for those who have chosen to open their homes to the love of a pet, not only dogs and cats, but also rabbits, birds, and fish.

Through collaboration with an exclusive network of authoritative professionals, rigorously selected among doctors, veterinarians, biologists, psychologists, ethologists, and trainers, pet lovers will be able to find useful advice and tips on nutrition, hygiene, and keeping their four-legged friends (and others) fit.

The Instagram profile @mypersonalpet, which has more than 330,000 followers, has registered 500,000 interactions and a reach of 4 million people in the last month, thanks in part to engaging visual posts on key topics with infographics, reels, and carousels.

In addition to complementing the main Instagram page @myptrainer, Mypersonalpet works with a network of experienced contributors and more than 30 top creators, as well as through collaboration with the Power and Zenzero talent agencies. The profile promotes an innovative narrative of personal & family wellness and provides information on touching stories and current social issues related to pets. There is no shortage of space for viral stories with intriguing and engaging formats such as “Pet dramas”, and more relaxing topics such as “Fashion & Accessories”.

Mypersonalpet officially launched at Mypersonaltrainer Days 2023, with volleyball player Cristina Chirichella and her dog Chichi acting as special representatives. The brand is dedicated to pets within the Mypersonaltrainer world, which 14 million people already access each month looking for information, tutorials, and advice regarding health, fitness, and personal wellness.

Mypersonalpet complements Mypersonaltrainer and Mondadori Media in the pet sector, and will work in full synergy with Mediamond and its dedicated unit, Brand On Solutions, to bring individual brands, innovative and effective branded content initiatives, and influencer marketing projects to the market.

Monge, a leading pet food company, was the first brand to believe in Mypersonalpet, investing in this new project during its launch.

The whole Piazza Sempione dedicated to the new edition of Mypersonaltrainer Days

Two days of wellness, fitness and sport for fit lovers, with the involvement of brand partners

After the great success of the first edition, this year there will be more events and initiatives: amazing activities like Free Climbing, AcroVolley and Pickleball, free workouts on the open-air stage, encounters with figures from the world of sports and health and an extraordinary Urban Walk

After the great success of the first edition – which saw the participation of over 5,000 visitors and the involvement of over 20 brand sponsors – the highly anticipated Mypersonaltrainer Days event returns with numerous free activities open to the public for all wellness, fitness and sport lovers.  The event will cover the whole Piazza Sempione on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September 2023.

Mypersonaltrainer has been particularly successful in transitioning from the digital sphere to events in the country. To cement the development and growth of the project, this edition of Mypersonaltrainer Days will be even better and more engaging than last year, both in terms of activities, which are innovative and fun, and because of the much larger space that we’ll be using to host the event”, said Daniela Cerrato, Mondadori Media’s Digital Marketing Director. “We’ll engage our followers throughout the Piazza dell’Arco della Pace and in Sempione Park – city’s green heart – with activities and experiences. We’ll offer fit lovers many new workouts, bringing this weekend dedicated to comprehensive health and well-being to life”.

The initiative this year comes with a new name: Wellness Recharge. A real recharging hub for body and mind where you can experience four fundamental areas for well-being: Wellness and Health, with personalised medical consultations and dedicated conferences and talks with health professionals; Food and Nutrition, with free tips and advice; Fitness, with sports activities and encounters with great champions and players. In the fourth area, Happiness, the experience-based corners for those brands engaged in the search for well-being will be front and centre, where they’ll present innovations, products and services dedicated to a balanced and active life that will involve participants in activities and tests.

The events dedicated to fitness will see the participation of sports talents and fitfluencers to try sports like Animal Flow, Mobility or trendy activities that are increasingly becoming popular, like Silent Fitness. All this will take place in the splendid setting of Sempione Park: it’ll truly take over the famous square and the Dazio di Levante with innovative and engaging activities like Free Climbing, AcroVolley and Pickleball, a mixture of tennis, paddleball, badminton and ping pong. They’re amazing activities, which promise real fun for participants and spectators. The Mypersonaltrainer Urban Walk will take place also in this edition, which will be even more exciting and inclusive: a 5 km non-competitive walk where everyone can really participate, even pets.

Mypersonaltrainer will work together with Mediamond and its Brand On Solutions structure, dedicated to special initiatives, to propose original and engaging projects to the market and individual brands for all interested partners.

For the Mypersonaltrainer Days event, an advertising campaign was carried out in several forms of media: newspapers, notices on the DOOH circuit, radio, magazine and the digital side of the Mondadori Group. All the parts that will make up the event – from the teaser stage to the non-stop coverage in the two days, finishing with a follow-up dedicated to the most significant and exciting moments of the two days of events – were described in detail on Mypersonaltrainer’s different social media and web profiles, including its activities and the partners involved.
