Mark Falk, Fitness Shadow’s owner said, “We wanted to provide a service that is far reaching, cost effective and powerful, and we found it in it’s simplest form, text messaging. According to a CNN report, and multiple others from health organizations and governmental agencies, text messaging has, and can play a huge role in weight loss and fitness. We look to help people change their daily habits. With daily texts, habits are formed. Some are repeated, some are new, but we’ll get people changing habits, and moving daily.”
Text2Fit.com provides up to 3 text messages a day which include exercises, tips, reminders, motivation and all done in fewer than 160 characters. The above mentioned CNN report indicates that text messages provide something called “triggers”

Mr. Falk said, “We’ve put several basic exercises online that are texted to subscribers of the service. They may be asked to do a push up. They go to the link, and see how to do it properly. These short exercise clips can be seen from anyone’s Smartphone, or copied onto someone’s computer for viewing. We’ll be adding to this list of exercises, but many of the fitness tips will include things such as, ‘walk up 5 flights of stairs today, all at once, or throughout your day, but climb those stairs’. You’d be amazed, but people through this simple prompt will walk those stairs. It truly is an excellent way to help those who are looking for the extra motivation and looking to change their habits to do so. The key to weight loss is consistency and persistence. Through this service daily prompts will help create those changes.”
Currently, the service is only available in the United States. An Iphone and Blackberry app are in the works to push weight loss content to subscriber’s phones. The Text2Fit.com service costs $9.95 per month on a subscription basis, billed monthly.
