Leeza Gibbons Leads New Coaching Program to Boost the Nation's Heart Health
Date:9/18/2007

Teams Up with Promise(R) and Other Heart Health Advocates to Offer Inspiration and Information on How Little Life Changes Can Have a Big

Impact

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you ever made a promise to yourself that you couldn't keep? Even when it comes to heart health, the most heart-felt personal commitments can often fall by the wayside. A new highly interactive national program, launched by Promise(R), the brand known for products that help remove cholesterol, is aiming to change all of that. The Promise(R) Heart Coach(TM) Program is a platform of inspiration and information to help consumers not only make, but keep, their promises to improve their heart-healthy lifestyle.

Led by journalist and television personality Leeza Gibbons, the Promise(R) Heart Coach(TM) Program's premise is that although there's no shortage of heart health information available to consumers, what's missing is the right balance of motivation and tools to help consumers really make the changes necessary to a heart-healthy lifestyle.

"One in four Americans is at risk for high cholesterol in the United States, and millions of people are confused about what they should do to improve their heart health lifestyle," said Leeza Gibbons. "The Promise(R) Heart Coach(TM) Program truly understands where people are coming from and the challenges they face. It recognizes that we can all use some help, motivation and information along the way -- and it serves it up in a way that is friendly and empowering. It really is like having your own personal coach."

One-Stop Coaching Online

The "heart" of the Promise(R) Heart Coach(TM) Program is an online site, promisehealthyheart.com, that offers a rich array of advice, exercise tips, nutrition tools, and professional coaching. By signing up for the Program, users can receive customized life, fitness, and diet plans with professional, nationally known heart health experts. These include Melissa Ohlson, a nutritionist, RD and the Nutrition Projects Coordinator for the Department of Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation at the Cleveland Clinic; and Michael George, a celebrity fitness trainer whose list of clients includes Reese Witherspoon, Tobey Maguire, Julianne Moore, Meg Ryan and Christian Slater.

A particularly empowering feature of the program is that Leeza, Melissa, and Michael are all supplying advice and words of encouragement online -- literally -- through opinion pieces, other written and video commentary, and reader Q & As. All content on the site will be updated on a regular basis, keeping the program fresh and insuring that consumers get the coaching they need to make and stick with their promises.

As part of the Promise(R) Heart Coach(TM) Program, four individuals who make particularly compelling heart-health promises will be chosen to win one- on-one coaching with the Promise Heart Coaches. Consumers can get more information by logging onto the web site http://www.promisehealthyheart.com.

"The Promise(R) brand firmly believes that taking care of your heart is one of the most important promises you can make to yourself," said Eric Berman, Brand Director of Promise(R) from Unilever USA, the makers of Promise(R) activ(TM) SuperShots(TM) and Spreads. "We know that with the right mix of heart-healthy products, tools and motivation, the heart health profiles of millions of Americans can be improved."

About Promise(R)
