LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FitOrbit, Inc. announced the launch of their FitOrbit for iPhone app, which is available today in the iTunes App Store.
FitOrbit for iPhone – an even more personal extension of FitOrbit's newly updated online platform – is the first ever interactive and intimate mobile fitness solution. While there are hundreds of fitness and weight-loss apps, this is the first and only one that blends the power of technology with the potency of human support and guidance. Now, FitOrbit subscribers can have their personal trainer and customized exercise and meal plans with them at all times. It delivers on FitOrbit's core promise and belief: "If it's not personal, it's not possible."
The FitOrbit app is free to all members of FitOrbit.com, the revolutionary online program that delivers personal training and full weight-loss programs for a tiny fraction of what conventional personal training costs at a gym, or at home. For an average of $10 a month, FitOrbit membersreceive a full lifestyle package, including a smartly personalized workout regimen, realistic meal plan, plus 24/7 standby support.
FitOrbit's highly personal and trainer-guided solution has been proven effective. In a recent independent 20-week study, participants reported an average of 1.3 lbs/week of weight loss using FitOrbit. With FitOrbit for iPhone, that experience is mirrored and extended to the mobile device.
