(PRWEB) April 12, 2010 -- Kaiser Permanente Southern California, which provides health coverage to over 3 million Southern California residents, announced today its roll-out of an online personal fitness and training service pilot program, called FitOrbit, to selected members who are struggling to lose weight.

FitOrbit will provide a limited number of members with a dedicated, online, certified personal trainer who will provide each participant with a customized, personal daily workout and nutrition plan, designed to help patients fight obesity and other preventable diseases.

“Preventing illness and promoting wellness are the top priorities at Kaiser Permanente. Collaborating with FitOrbit provides Kaiser Permanente members with a customized personal fitness and nutrition solution that has measurable results,” says Jeffrey Weisz, MD, executive medical director of the Southern California Permanente Medical Group.

FitOrbit founder and fitness industry pioneer Jake Steinfeld, Chairman of Body By Jake Global, says, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Getting people to lose weight and get in shape is the best way to prevent many health issues in the first place. Therefore, we are thrilled to be working with Kaiser Permanente – the leader in innovative preventive health care—on this pilot.”    

Kaiser Permanente’s FitOrbit pilot is part of a national trend in healthcare focused on improving American’s health by decreasing obesity. The program will roll-out April 2010.
