VirtualFitnessCoach.com - an interactive wellness fitness program that gives employees daily personal guidance and feedback from their own virtual trainer - has launched at http://www.VirtualFitnessCoach.com/health. The mission of the site: to help companies, health insurance agencies and hospitals give their employees a complete health and wellness program resulting in weight loss, healthier nutrition, reduced stress and increased employee well being.
Through Virtual Fitness Coach, companies help their employees - men and women of all age groups - reach their fitness goals with a customized combination of exercise, feedback, motivation, nutritional plans and coaching from a world class personal fitness trainer in a 'virtual' form.
Companies give their employees the knowledge and dedication of a professional fitness expert, through a cost-effective wellness program. Employees receive personal log in access, where they have the option of working out at home or in a gym, coached by Mel O'Keefe, an Iron Man competitor and professional fitness trainer with 30 years of experience.
Mr. O'Keefe is presented online as "Virtual Mel" - and after a free fitness assessment gives users a scientifically proven exercise regimen and nutritional plan to achieve their goals, ranging from weight loss, muscle gain and toning.
Users of http://www.VirtualFitnessCoach.com/health receive daily communication and exercise adjustments from their trainer, in response to feedback and progress submitted by the user. The experience of working one-on-one with a world class trainer is now captured in virtual form with "Virtual Mel", giving corporate wellness programs a cost-effective option to help their employees.
The Virtual Fitness Coach program utilizes online video work out demonstrations of all exercises, audio tutorials and feedback, mobile updates along with access to a personal fitness trainer at any time. Moreover, users will receive e-mail reminders, online messages, mobile and personal updates on their progress.
Virtual Fitness Trainer Mel O'Keefe has 'Ran the Run.'
After 30 years of fitness coaching experience at people's homes and in the gym, Mel O'Keefe realized that there are hundreds of thousands of people who need fitness help, but don't have the proper guidance. With this in mind, Mel created VirtualFitnessCoach.com, a cost-effective way for companies to give their employees the benefits, motivation and coaching of a professional trainer - with the option of exercising at a gym or in the privacy of one's home.
Mel O'Keefe has completed an Iron Man Triathlon, and has run from Phoenix, AZ, to San Diego, CA, through 18 days of marathons (1k miles) as a fundraiser for cancer related blood diseases.
