They're our way of motivating people and saying thank you for helping each other.
Concord, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2008
Jump4Health Inc., the most trusted name in mini-trampoline exercise, fitness and education, has formally launched a community forum to help people connect with others to achieve their health, fitness and weight loss goals.
The idea for the Jump4Health forum came to Jump4Health's founder, Eliot Seal, after he read a magazine article about two women who met online and worked together to develop a weight loss program. The two women never met in person but each reached their weight loss goals by supporting each other virtually.
"The story of these two women inspired me to create a welcoming, online venue where people could meet and help each other get fit and healthy, lose weight, share diet and nutritional information or just hang out with like-minded people," said Seal.
Although Seal will moderate the forum on a daily basis, answer member questions and provide online training and mentoring, his idea is to let users generate content and request categories that will help and inspire them.
"Not everyone has friends, family or a personal trainer to motivate and support them," said Seal. "People trying the reach their health and fitness goals need to connect and make friends with others who share the same problems or issues."
The forum will give members the opportunity to introduce themselves to others, join discussions, set up programs, ask questions and motivate each other. There's no charge to join.
To encourage people to become members of the new forum, Seal is giving away Jump4Health T-shirts and key rings to the first 100 people who join.
"The gifts are just for fun," said Seal. "They're our way of motivating people and saying thank you for helping each other."
The Jump4Health forum will open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
