Recorded Books will begin to distribute GymAmerica for Libraries.

Recorded Books, the world’s largest independent producer of audiobooks, has announced that it will begin distribution of GymAmerica for Libraries, a comprehensive online fitness, health and nutrition service designed to help library patrons get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle.

“The overall health of our American people is a growing concern. One out of every three Americans is obese and obesity related health issues are the number two cause of death in this country,” said Rich Freese, President and CEO of Recorded Books, LLC. “GymAmerica will allow public libraries to participate in improving the overall health of their communities by giving them the information they need to live a healthier lifestyle, in a way that is both accessible and fun.”

Since 1999, GymAmerica has been helping people lose weight and get in shape. GymAmerica has been selected by Forbes magazine as a “Best of Web” site for nine consecutive years. Its revolutionary Online Personal Trainer software emulates the services of a personal trainer. The expert-designed system dynamically customizes individual workout and diet plans for members, and then uses the entered results to progress members to their weight loss and fitness goals. By regularly interacting with the software, members learn appropriate caloric levels and exercise techniques to better manage their health on an ongoing basis.

“GymAmerica for Libraries will allow public libraries to offer premium online personal trainer and nutritionist services free to their patrons” said Jim Mrowka, President of Genesant Technologies, the developer of GymAmerica. “Now, all library members, regardless of income level, can have access to health and fitness services that historically have cost $50 per hour or more.”
