DOWNSIZE FITNESS LAUNCHES ONLINE WORKOUT PROGRAM
Downsize Fitness, an all-encompassing health and wellness organization providing a transformational program to help members lose 50+ pounds through fully integrated physical fitness, is launching a new workout program, Downsize @ Home. Downsize Fitness has locations in Texas, Illinois and Ottawa, Canada, but wants to provide health services for those who don’t have access to the Downsize Fitness facilities by bringing the workout online, to benefit members all over the world.
“One-third of the U.S. population is overweight and another third is deemed medically obese,” said Francis Wisniewski, founder and chairman of Downsize Fitness. “Not everyone can access our physical facilities, so we are bringing the workout to them. If the obesity rates continue on their current trajectories, 44 percent of Americans will be obese by 2030. That’s unacceptable, and we knew that we had to come up with a way to provide people struggling with obesity with a supportive community to help them take control of their health.”
Downsize @ Home is a truly unique service, providing members with live-stream, instructional workout videos available online. Each workout created by Downsize Fitness’s team has been modified to ensure that anyone can participate, whether at home or in the gym. Each time a member clicks play on a Downsize @ Home video; they are coached through specialized workouts personalized to work for any fitness level. Each workout also provides explanations on how each exercise works the body, so members know the benefits of this impressive program.
Downsize Fitness was designed for individuals who are significantly overweight, and works to ensure that members lose 50+ pounds through fully customized physical fitness and personal training to fit the individual’s fitness level, an 18-month nutrition program and weight loss counseling. These three aspects foster a supportive environment where significantly overweight individuals can feel safe, without fear of shame or seclusion.
One of the most inspiring aspects of Downsize Fitness is 95 percent of the staff have personally experienced weight loss transformation, including the company’s leaders. As a member of Downsize @ Home, the Downsize Fitness community becomes a personal support system, providing advice and encouragement for each individual via email. Downsize Fitness members are given support by mentors who know the hardships of serious obesity and continually work towards a healthier lifestyle.
“Our vision is to help tackle the obesity crisis in the world,” says Wisniewski. “Most Americans don’t go to the gym for fear of ridicule, and I would know, I said the same thing. Every individual’s journey toward healthier living is different, and we want to help people find their path toward a healthy lifestyle, whether they’re coming to the gym or exercising from home. Every time you complete a workout, you are one step closer to changing your life!”
