FitOrbit is looking to significantly expand its roster of highly qualified industry professionals who can give exceptional weight loss and fitness guidance online to clients provided by the company in order to keep pace with growth.

Online supported weight loss and fitness programs are just an obvious fit for the modern lifestyle, as well as the modern fitness professional.

FitOrbit (, the first and only interactive weight management service providing access to real human fitness and nutrition professionals for effective internet-based weight loss and fitness personal training, is looking to add 500 online personal trainers in the next six months to keep pace with the company's phenomenal growth. FitOrbit is looking to significantly expand its roster of highly qualified industry professionals who can give exceptional weight loss and fitness guidance online to clients provided by the company.

"FitOrbit has grown over 300% since celebrating our first anniversary just two months ago," notes Jake Steinfeld, Founder of FitOrbit and Chairman of Body by Jake Global. "As a personal training decision for consumers, FitOrbit sits right on the nexus of affordability, scope of services, effectiveness and the essential personal interactions that bring it all together, so it's no wonder that we need more qualified fitness and nutrition professionals on board immediately to fuel the company's growth."

Designed to fit into the busy lives of 21st century personal trainers, as well as their clients, FitOrbit is a reinventing of the personal training business for web-savvy trainers. Online personal training with FitOrbit represents a source of primary or secondary income for qualified fitness professionals working from their computers anywhere on a flexible schedule without having to put any effort into finding new clients. FitOrbit trainers scale their time commitment by taking on as few or as many clients as they desire.

Most of FitOrbit's current certified fitness and nutrition professionals across 17 countries earn hundreds to thousands of dollars part-time while keeping their in-person personal training businesses. "I maintain a robust client roster with FitOrbit that helps build my brand and compliments my lineup of in-person clients," states Erin Morgart of Virginia Beach, a successful personal trainer who has moved several times in the last few years with her husband in the United States Navy. "I've had to rebuild my personal training client list over and over but my FitOrbit clients always stick with me."

One factor spurring recent growth in the online fitness industry overall, and at industry-leading FitOrbit, is the just-released report from The Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research which confirms that interactive weight management websites can be effective for weight loss when used as directed. "Online supported weight loss and fitness programs are just an obvious fit for the modern lifestyle, as well as the modern fitness professional," adds Steinfeld.

FitOrbit trainers create, monitor and update hyper-personalized workout and meal plans on a daily basis from anywhere with a computer for their select list of clients across the world provided by FitOrbit. Through online tools for easily building custom workout and meal plans unique to each client with an extensive degree of options, FitOrbit trainers get to infuse their own personal styles, approach, and philosophies to fitness and nutrition into their interactions with FitOrbit clients.

Workout plans are demonstrated for FitOrbit members through multimedia instructions including studio-quality ‘how to’ videos from the large array available in the FitOrbit library. Meal plans include recommended meals, recipes, and full nutritional information for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, along with restaurant substitutions for eating out. FitOrbit trainers monitor their client's daily progress through a simple to use online activity log maintained by the client along with direct personal communications through the site's interface.

"This truly feels like the future of personal fitness, both for my clients and for me as a trainer," adds Dayna Blumberg, a FitOrbit trainer from Long Beach, New York, whose plans to become a professional trainer in 2000 were derailed twice by car accidents before becoming a certified fitness instructor in 2008. "My client list continues to grow through FitOrbit while I focus on helping clients meet their fitness goals, instead of marketing myself all day."

An ideal FitOrbit trainer has extensive experience successfully helping clients meet their fitness and weight-loss goals. Industry certifications and accreditations are a must. FitOrbit trainers can be experts in a single discipline or be superstars who are professionals at everything from Aerobics to Yoga. "FitOrbit is building the fitness industry's elite team of online personal trainers and has created the ultimate online destination for clients to find them," notes Steinfeld.

"FitOrbit allows me to bring my fitness expertise to a world beyond my local area," beams FitOrbit trainer Robert Palmer, MD, who was originally born in Vietnam but considers himself an Iowa City native after earning two B.S. degrees there on his way to becoming a physician and personal fitness trainer. Now he works with FitOrbit clients in Miami, Los Angeles, and Seattle. "The final frontier of in-home training has finally been crossed."

Qualified candidates should send bios, resumes, pictures and video links (if available) to support(at)fitorbit(dot)com. FitOrbit is temporarily waiving any application fee and can start providing clients to approved FitOrbit trainers immediately.

Global Fitness Media, the company behind FitOrbit, was founded in 2008 by fitness industry pioneer Jake Steinfeld whose other achievements include Founder of ExerciseTV, Major League Lacrosse, and FitTV, Chairman of Body By Jake Global, plus is the current Chairman of the California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. Global Fitness Media’s two products are FitOrbit (, which takes the proven formula of one-on-one personal training online to create a 21st century virtual gym, and the award winning location-based restaurant nutrition information search product GoodFoodNearYou (, which is also available for the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices.
