Most people would be surprised at how little it takes to make a big impact towards their fitness goals-- it's my job to show them.
Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) July 20, 2010
FitOrbit, the first and only online personal fitness and weight loss service providing access to real human fitness and nutrition professionals for effective Internet-based personal training and support, is marking its one year anniversary by declaring success in the online fitness revolution.
"The launch of FitOrbit one year ago really was a turning point in the history of fitness on the Internet," notes Jake Steinfeld, Founder of FitOrbit and Chairman of Body by Jake Global. "A dedicated, affordable, private fitness and nutrition professional is finally a reality and only a click away...truly a revolution in online fitness." Steinfeld pioneered the personal training movement throughout his career. He was the original in-home personal trainer before becoming a household name providing innovative home gym products followed by a pair of popular fitness television networks. FitOrbit is his boldest and latest step towards his quest for a fit America.
For as little as $10 a week, FitOrbit (http://www.FitOrbit.com) provides any web or mobile internet user one-click access to the best fitness and weight loss trainers across the world who create and monitor personalized workouts and meal plans for their select list of clients backed by ongoing one-on-one feedback and support.
FitOrbit's success is fueled by an innovative and effective approach to personal fitness and nutrition. The service recently reported an astounding 79% weight-loss success rate with FitOrbit users who stuck to the plan hand-crafted by their FitOrbit instructor. Those seeking to sustainably lose more than 25 pounds found themselves on track losing an average of seventeen pounds in their first four months with their live FitOrbit trainer.
Third party validation of the FitOrbit fitness revolution welled in the first year. Kaiser Permanente Southern California, which services health coverage to over 3 million Southern California residents, provided dedicated, online, certified FitOrbit trainers to a number of their members struggling to lose weight to help them fight obesity and other preventable diseases. Valley Renal Medical Group, a leading Southern California medical practice for obesity and diabetes, now provides FitOrbit to its staff as part of an employee Wellness program. Retail icon Sears picked up FitOrbit as a product now offered to its customers. Most recently, Iconoculture, a leading global consumer research and advisory company, named FitOrbit a "mainstreaming trend" in 2010.
Each one of FitOrbit's 250 certified fitness and nutrition professionals across 17 countries creates everything needed in a daily plan to meet their client's fitness and weight loss goals based on a wealth of information they provide. Effective workouts are demonstrated through multimedia instructions including studio-quality 'how to' videos. Daily meal plans include recommended meals, recipes, and full nutritional information for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, along with for 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.
To mark the one year anniversary of FitOrbit and the effective online fitness revolution it started, the service will honor their top 10 trainers as determined by client feedback and weight-loss successes from the first year. Each one is being highlighted within the FitOrbit organization and will also be featured in-depth on http://www.FitOrbit.com over the coming months.
"My passion is helping people find a fitness program that can fold right into their life," admitted Roxy Black, one of the just-named Top 10 FitOrbit trainers. "Most people would be surprised at how little it takes to make a big impact towards their fitness goals-- it's my job to show them."
"Many people invest in a fitness product hoping it will change their life and instead it ends up doubling as a coat rack," adds Dave DiFabio, another Top 10 FitOrbit trainer. "FitOrbit doesn't disappoint and definitely won't turn into a coat rack. Instead, FitOrbit is like a GPS unit to navigate the road to health and fitness while avoiding roadblocks and stoplights."
As the relationship and knowledge of a client's unique fitness personality progresses, FitOrbit trainers alter the fitness, nutritional and weight loss strategy to better hone in on getting results. They track habits, lazy days, and find out directly from the client what is most effective for each unique individual. They will even craft a travel diet for members on the road and point them to healthy restaurants at home or away.
FitOrbit brings a touch of socializing as well by offering virtual support groups made up of trainers and other members who help by providing motivation along with a fun degree of accountability.
Global Fitness Media, the company behind FitOrbit, was founded in 2008 by fitness industry pioneer Jake Steinfeld whose other achievements include Chairman of Body By Jake Global, Founder of ExerciseTV, Major League Lacrosse, and FitTV, plus is the current Chairman of the California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. Global Fitness Media's two products are FitOrbit (http://www.FitOrbit.com), 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 (http://www.goodfoodnearyou.com), which is also available for the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices.
