We knew traineo would fill a need for the weight loss community, but we’re overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our members and the health and fitness industry.
Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) August 24, 2006 –-
HDO Group LLC, a provider of innovative health & fitness technology and services via the internet, today announced the release of its flagship weight loss service. Traineo.com is a free and intuitive weight loss application that offers effective exercise and diet visual tracking tools. More than a simple training log, traineo.com also provides members with a built-in support system through its social networking community. Members can choose up to four individuals, or ‘motivators’, who receive weekly email updates outlining the member’s progress toward his/her weight loss goals. Traineo.com also offers members resources and tips from the world’s leading health and fitness experts through a database of articles and within the active discussion forums.
HDO Group LLC originally planned to launch traineo.com later this month, however initial response from the soft-launch was overwhelming and within 24 hours over 5,000 members had registered for the free service. Today the site has over 10,000 registered members. New features and more robust capabilities continue to be added, but members can already begin tracking their weight loss goals and experiencing motivational benefits by registering for free at http://www.traineo.com.
Alasdair McLean-Foreman, CEO of HDO Group, LLC and traineo.com, was enthusiastic about the initial response. “We knew traineo would fill a need for the weight loss community, but we’re overwhelmed by the positive feedback from our members and the health and fitness industry.”
McLean-Foreman also described the technology and social networking capabilities of the site as key differentiators among weight loss tools. “Support and motivation are arguably the most important elements of a successful weight loss program. With traineo’s powerful visual elements combined with a community of like-minded individuals, enthusiasts, and experts, our members receive the support and motivation they need to reach their goals. And the tracking features add an element of accountability that provides extra incentive. The software behind traineo is so intuitive, yet robust. It provides our members an easy-to-use interface for tracking fitness and diet indicators, while also offering in-depth tracking and graphing capabilities. We wanted to make traineo so simple that anyone wishing to lose weight could participate. I think we’ve achieved that goal.”
