Fitness Website Helps Hoosiers Get More Exercise and Lose Weight
NAPLES, Fla., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- -The owners of MAKE IT FIT(TM), an online fitness and wellness resource, are helping all Hoosiers begin building healthier lifestyles in 2009 by donating their services for almost nothing. Principals Stacy Bick and Rebecca Johnson are offering all residents of the Hoosier state an annual membership to www.youcanmakeitfit.com for only 99 cents a month if they sign up during the hours of 6am to midnight EDT on Friday, March 13, 2009. Residents who log onto the site on "Make Indiana Fit Day" and sign up for the virtually free membership will immediately have access to a large library of streaming fitness videos, fitness podcasts, and printable workouts, along with other weight management tools such as nutrition information and diet plans. These tools provide the user with an excellent opportunity to exercise at home, in the office, or on the road, all on their own schedule, with experienced fitness professionals to guide and motivate them.
"A membership to MAKE IT FIT(TM) is normally priced at $14.95 per month," said Principal Stacy Bick. "Offering it almost free to an entire state is an unprecedented event for us, but one we feel is important to our ultimate goal of helping Americans increase their physical activity level, which is an essential part of any healthy weight loss program."
The idea for "Make Indiana Fit Day" stemmed from the news out of the Center for Disease Control ranking the U.S. states from heaviest to lightest. Bick and Johnson launched an initiative at the start of 2009 to offer their services for this seriously reduced rate to all residents of the heaviest 15 states across the country. Indiana ranks as the 11th heaviest on the list.
By joining MAKE IT FIT(TM), Indiana residents will find a wide variety of streaming and downloadable workouts including strength training, cardio, abs, mind-body, pre- and post-natal programs, desk stretches and office exercises. Members will also find ways to get their families active and to stay fit while traveling. These include kids' programs, classes designed to be done in a hotel room and podcasts for "on the go" workouts. There are classes and workouts suited for all fitness levels, including currently sedentary or very overweight individuals. Early in 2009, MAKE IT FIT(TM) will add a structured Beginner's Program that will guide those new to exercise through a several-month progression designed to help them gradually add more activity into their lives in a way that is suitable for their fitness level.
"The country is going through a tough time of national economic struggle which makes it difficult for many people to pay for a gym membership or hire a personal trainer to guide and motivate them through the uphill battle of weight loss," said Johnson. "We truly hope that we can reach thousands of people in Indiana through this campaign to help them start off the year on a healthy note for a price that everyone can certainly afford right now."
"We are also offering the businesses and corporations in Indiana a special discount for signing up for MAKE IT FIT(TM) Corporate plans," said Rebecca Johnson, co-owner and principal of MAKE IT FIT(TM). "We have unique corporate packages that provide an affordable way for companies to include MAKE IT FIT(TM) in their employee wellness programs, thereby keeping employees more physically fit and reducing costs related to productivity and healthcare."
"We want to help the people who need our service the most, and what better time to do it than at the start of a New Year," said Bick. "We hope that all Hoosiers who take advantage of our service will find it helpful in keeping them motivated to achieve those New Year's resolutions to lose weight and live healthier lifestyles."
