the benefits of having personal training, but at a fraction of the cost


With the UK now ranked as having the highest obesity in Europe, the importance of keeping fit has never been more relevant and the founders of a revolutionary new fitness website which launches on 4 January 2011, are hoping to help to help tackle the problem. Created by two of the UK’s top personal trainers Marc Marchant and Nick Mays who trains the likes of David Walliams, Irina Abramovich and Mario Testino, Marc and Nick are hoping that through the website they will help to re-educate the public to see fitness as an important lifelong commitment and not just a fad New Year’s resolution. Cheaper than a gym and packed with great workouts and nutritious healthy eating plans, will give you the benefits of having personal training, but at a fraction of the cost.

Commenting on the current obesity problem, and the impact of obesity on health, ikeepfit’s Marc Marchant said “ikeepfit’s medical expert Dr Ayan Panja has confirmed that if obesity levels continue to rise at the current rate, then 9 out of 10 people in the UK will be obese by 2050 which is a really terrifying proposition. Research over the years has demonstrated the strong links between obesity and health problems such as Type 2 Diabetes and many of these can be avoided. Motivation and budget can often be the problem - the cost of having a personal trainer can be prohibitive and the current economic climate has forced the sale of food at low prices which is highly calorific but with little nourishment. “

With the excesses of Christmas now gone, losing weight often tops the New Year’s Resolution polls but with the ever increasing headlines about the UK having the highest level of obesity in Europe it would seem that this is a New Year’s resolution that is frequently broken

With ikeepfit, flexibility is the name of the game and ikeepfit members can choose to workout at home, at the office during a lunch break with colleagues, with friends, or even abroad! The exercise routines on ikeepfit, which cater to all fitness levels range from personal training plans to recommended workouts. There is even the facility to create your own workouts from the exercise library, plus there are regular guest videos from the likes of Yoga expert Liz Lark and Pilates guru Peter Roberts. All the videos are shot in glorious HD and can be viewed on a laptop or computer or even linked to an HDTV if required. Members can connect via Facebook or email and can even post their workouts on Facebook to share with their friends who can trial the site for 3 days before signing up.

ikeepfit is a new lifestyle choice – unlike a fitness DVD, ikeepfit fitness training offers a huge choice of routines and the opportunity to tailor a workout that suits your specific requirements at any time. With a little motivation and regular online encouragement from Nick and Marc, 2011 could be a year of transformation – so make sure you sign up, and get fit!
