How to Watch the Masters
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 7, 2007
In 2000, record-holding marathoner Tim Rogers (the fastest authentic marathoner on all seven continents including Antarctica) saw a need for runners and other athletes to communicate about training and health-related ideas. He started realbuzz.com in the U.K. as a way to bring fitness enthusiasts together to share information on training, nutrition and ways to improve their overall daily lives. Today, with word of mouth the basis of its success, the site has become the most popular of its kind in the U.K. and has set its sights on America in the form of a U.S. version of realbuzz.com.
As the official web site for The World Marathon Major series (Boston, ING New York City Marathon, The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon, the Flora London Marathon and the Berlin Marathon), realbuzz.com is taking a serious plunge into the U.S., a market 10 times the size of the U.K. With many more serious fitness and health enthusiasts in the U.S. thirsting for information on how to improve their active and passive lives, they will have the ultimate place to turn for the latest intelligence and advice.
The NYC-based team at realbuzz.com spent six months working on the U.S. site, with more platforms and a design that makes access to its unique content even easier. Realbuzz.com founder Tim Rogers explained: "We wanted to make the site more accessible and add more content. What we've produced is a compelling web site that gives people interested in their health and fitness the complete package."
In addition to the expert information that is offered on the site, realbuzz.com has become an online meeting place for thousands of men and women wanting to communicate about their lifestyles, passions and well being. Some of the interactive departments found include Running, Sports, Fitness, Healthy Living, Diet & Nutrition, Outdoor Living, Travel and Entertainment. Within each category are literally hundreds of pages on an array of lifestyle topics. Articles can range from "Ten Tips When Buying a Sleeping Bag" and "How to Watch the Masters" to "Is Stress Making You Fat?" The site also features an army of bloggers and various experts - there's podcast, vodcasts, newsletters, forums and more.
Realbuzz.com receives more than 30,000 viewers per day in the U.K. who are reading an average of 30 pages, considered quite high by most industry standards. And, with getting clean and sober all the rage with the Hollywood set, the site recently launched the world's first online rehab clinic for non celebrity, ordinary mortals, complete with tailor-made advice on how best to cope with the stress of modern day living and getting your life under control.
Realbuzz.com/U.S. will feature more pages, renowned experts, and a host of new features. As realbuzz.com continues to expand, its community continues to grow as well, making the world a much smaller place.
