Take Back Your Health as Health Clubs Open Their Doors to the Public in May

The International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) and member health clubs across the nation announced today the upcoming start of the 7th annual Get Active America!, IHRSA’s national health promotion program. From May 3-9, participating IHRSA-member health clubs will open their doors to the public to encourage and inspire Americans to take control of their health by becoming more physically active. Find a participating health club near you.

Get Active America! is part of an ongoing effort by the health club industry to change the direction of the nation’s health by making exercise more accessible to millions of Americans and by helping them take the first step toward healthier lifestyles.

“As obesity levels associated with chronic diseases increasingly burden our health care system and interfere with our quality of life, one thing is clear: Americans urgently need to take control of their health,” said Joe Moore, IHRSA president and CEO. “This year’s program theme, ‘Take Back Your Health,’ is a reminder to all Americans that they have more control over their health than they realize. Better health management begins with a commitment to daily exercise, and Get Active America! is the jumpstart people need to get on track.”

Now its seventh year, Get Active America! takes place every May, during National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, which is coordinated by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. The purpose is to challenge Americans to get moving for better health and to get more active and fit during the Month of May.

“May is an ideal time and Get Active America! is a great program for helping people maintain the momentum of their New Year’s fitness goals,” said Moore. “As warm weather approaches, people become more aware of their physical appearance. We want to remind people that exercise is more than just a way to look better. It is also an effective way to feel better and live better. Get Active America! provides the kind of support people need to both achieve their fitness goals and maintain them year-round.”

As part of Get Active America!, many clubs will be educating their local communities about disease prevention and healthy living through exercise. And clubs will be offering programs to benefit the wide array of people in their communities, all with diverse health and fitness goals. Clubs will also be encouraging their members to sign up for the Woman Challenge, organized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health. This eight-week physical fitness challenge encourages women to get at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week. It’s part of National Women’s Health Week, which runs from May 9-15, 2010. Participants will be able to track their steps online at: http://www.womenshealth.gov/woman.

PACE Fitness Adds Nutrition Program to Offer Health Clubs and Members a Total Wellness Package in Time for New Years

PACE Fitness Adds Nutrition Program to Offer Health Clubs and Members a Total Wellness Package in Time for New Years

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2010

PACE Fitness has been marketing its hydraulic circuit training equipment to women’s fitness centers and coed health clubs for over 20 years. PACE has now joined with the Medical/Weight Management Industry’s leader in the development of weight management products to offer an extensive line of meal replacements and protein supplements which have been scientifically designed to meet the nutritional needs of the Low Calorie dieter just in time for New Year’s Resolution memberships.

PACE President Rande LaDue states, “We have always suggested our health club customers offer some type of nutrition program to their members, but up until this point, we have never offered anything. We are happy to introduce our comprehensive program to help facilitate faster results for members and increased profits for the clubs. Exercise alone is only half of the wellness equation; now our health customers can offer a complete package.”

“January is typically the busiest month of the year for health clubs; however, it is even busier for weight loss centers because of the intimidation factor. Overweight people typically are too intimidated to join conventional health clubs. Our non-intimidating hydraulic equipment has helped many clubs overcome this hurdle; however, without a nutrition program, clubs are not offering what these people want and need as well as missing out on a great deal of profit.”

“Simplicity has always been a key factor to the success of our hydraulic circuit program. The same holds true with our new nutrition program. Our turn-key start up package for clubs includes staff training, marketing and program manuals as well as a start up supply of products for immediate sales.”

PACE Nutrition products will be available direct to the consumer through its website pacefitnessandnutrition.com for those areas without a PACE club nearby.

BroadcastVision Entertainment Demonstrates New Video Game Exercise To Health Clubs At Club Industry Show 2005

BroadcastVision Entertainment Demonstrates New Video Game Exercise To Health Clubs At Club Industry Show 2005

Agoura Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 2, 2005

BroadcastVision Entertainment, a leading provider of exercise entertainment solutions for the fitness industry, will be demonstrating their new interactive exercise system, Dance Exercise Revolution™ at the Club Industry 2005 trade show at Chicago’s McCormick Place, November 3 -5.

Dance Exercise Revolution™ is an industrial strength, hardware package for the popular consumer video dance game, DDR™ (Dance Dance Revolution™) created by Konami Corporation. Scrolling onscreen arrows show exercisers where to place their feet on the corresponding Cobalt Flux dance platform. Points are gained by stepping on the right area of the dance platform at the right time. Some of the DDR™ games even provide a “workout” mode, which actually tracks how many calories the exerciser has burned. A person weighing 150 lbs. can burn about 640 calories in just one hour!

BroadcastVision Entertainment has created a durable hardware package suitable for the rigorous use in health clubs, YMCA’s and schools. The Dance Exercise Revolution system consists of a BroadcastVision 23” or 27” LCD screen mounted on a telescopic stand, a Playstation 2 with locking security enclosure, the Cobalt Flux industrial grade dance platform and controller, game software and speaker system. Key to fitness center operators is the 1 – 4 year warranties available on the dance platforms. “All the other dance platforms that we’ve seen in the market are designed for home use and they just don’t hold up in fitness center environments. Our partner, Cobalt Flux, has actually driven an SUV over the platforms and they don’t even crack! States Kevin Fee, V.P. of Marketing for BroadcastVision Entertainment.

Fee further adds “The fun and interactivity of Dance Exercise Revolution™ opens the door for people of all ages that don’t connect with conventional forms of exercise. It also creates an opportunity for membership-based clubs to attract entire families who can work out together. The combination of music, video and competition make Dance Exercise Revolution appealing to many of the couch potatoes of the world”.

BroadcastVision Entertainment, widely regarded as a pioneer of fitness entertainment, will be presenting many fitness entertainment solutions at Club Industry 2005. These would include personal cardio LCD TV’s that are positioned in front of cardio equipment that allow exercisers to watch their favorite television show, DVD or listen to a music CD. The exerciser simply plugs their headphone into the new BroadcastVision ORBIT screen controller, which they had designed by BMW Designworks.

BroadcastVision Entertainment will also present a new, Internet delivered, music and messaging system that will allow clubs to customize and day part music programs along with audio messages or advertisements that increase the club’s brand awareness, drive ancillary revenue streams and impart important messages to members.
