Date:5/19/2009

traineo, the Internet's leading free health and fitness community, has integrated Twitter technology to enable users to make tracking their weight a daily habit.

BOSTON, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- traineo, the Internet's leading free health and fitness community, has launched new functionality, enabling its users to use Twitter to stay on track of their weight loss goals.

traineo members are now able to remotely update their current weight via Twitter with a simple 'tweet @traineo'. Within minutes their free account at www.traineo.com graphs their progress and provides support and motivation via a unique motivator support system.

"Allowing users to link Twitter with their traineo accounts makes a lot of sense," said Alasdair McLean-Foreman, traineo's chief executive officer. "The Twitter phenomenon is incredible and 'tweeting' is rapidly becoming a daily web habit for many people and we are trying to make health and fitness a part of it. It's scientifically proven that routinely tracking your weight dramatically improves the chances of reaching a weight loss target. We think our integration with Twitter is a simple way to help people by making weight loss tracking part of their daily routine using the web."

Additionally, Twitter integration allows traineo users to post a daily health update from their traineo account seamlessly into their Twitter feed. This allows traineo users to broadcast their commitment to losing weight and improving their health and fitness to their own Twitter followers.
