The website brings together the vision we had for Fight2BFit from the beginning but in a way that would not have been possible if not for their tremendous effort in helping us develop and refine our ideas.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Avatar New York announced today the launch of Fight2BFit, a new interactive online educational platform that teaches youth healthy habits. The Fight2BFit platform incorporates a completely custom website design, front-end development, and back-end content management system with many user-friendly program administration tools.
By emphasizing team work, positive role models, and prize incentives, the website promotes improvements in fitness levels and quality of life with prizes for positive behavior. Participants can log in and receive instructions, view their own progress and individual and team standings on a daily basis.
“Launching the Fight2BFit website represents a personal achievement for, but, more importantly, what I hope to be, a tool to help kids achieve their own personal goals through improved health and fitness. The Avatar New York team not only brought fantastic information architecture and design skills to this multifaceted project, they also helped us think through and plan for the very real implications of our vision for serving today’s youth,” says Founder, Sue Wicks.
In addition to tools designed to aid teachers and educators manage and monitor the progress of their youth fitness programs, the website showcases a number of innovative design and technology features, many built specifically for Fight2BFit. Students can log in on a daily basis for

Teachers and instructors can

“Understanding the website's user groups and their unique goals,” says Geoff Nazzaro, Avatar New York’s Chief Information Architect, “allowed us to design and build a custom application with a tool set appropriate to accomplishing those goals.”
“I am extremely pleased with Avatar New York’s work," says Sue Wicks. "The website brings together the vision we had for Fight2BFit from the beginning but in a way that would not have been possible if not for their tremendous effort in helping us develop and refine our ideas. We look forward to working with Avatar New York as our organization grows and evolves.”
