“High intensity exercise is for cardiovascular fitness not weight loss...In other words, for most people it is increasing daily activity, not exercise that leads to sustainable weight loss and better health."
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 28, 2011
Gruve Technologies, Inc. a leading provider of scientifically proven health and weight loss products announced that Dr. Robert Gauthier will be heading the company as Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Gauthier, a practicing anesthesiologist and seasoned business executive, has the industry expertise and medical knowledge needed to reposition the company and lead the expansion into the retail weight loss market.
Gruve Technologies’s signature product, The Gruve® is a total body motion activity monitor centered on the concept of N.E.A.T. (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) which is all the daily calories one burns while doing normal (non-exercise) activity. Research found that increasing the N.E.A.T in our daily lives can result in sustainable weight loss and a dramatic improvement in one’s overall health. It works by reducing obesity risk factors including percent body fat, Body Mass Index, cholesterol, the HDL/LDL ratio, and plasma triglycerides. The Gruve is the only activity monitor in the market today that is sensitive enough to capture N.E.A.T activity and has been scientifically validated to be accurate and proven effective to aid weight loss.
The device’s highly sensitive technology is personalized and then calibrated to the user's specific metabolism and habits. It accurately records 98% of all daily activity compared to other devices that record only moderate to high intensity activity. The Gruve provides real-time feedback to the user through color changing calorie burn status lights and subtle vibrations to remind user to move. These cues help the users to modify behavior and provide a sustainable path to successful weight management and improved health.
“High intensity exercise is for cardiovascular fitness not weight loss,” says Dr. Gauthier, “In other words, for most people it is increasing daily activity, not exercise that leads to sustainable weight loss and better health. Ninety-five percent of people who lose weight through dieting gain it back within five years. Our goal is to provide a sustainable plan for people to follow that leads to better health and lasting changes in their lifestyle. ” Dr. Gauthier has also served as a consultant to several medical software product companies, including SAIC, Claimtrust, Apogee Informatics and GMD software, and he is active in the Twin Cities investment community. Dr. Gauthier earned his Medical degree from the University of Minnesota and also holds a Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of St. Thomas.
