Raleigh, NC - FitTwin, a new Raleigh area business venture, offers online discount gym memberships and a Twin Finder service to help users find a workout partner. Founder of FitTwin.com Gretchen Smith has a passion for healthy living and wanted to create an easy and affordable way to help others achieve their fitness goals. Her idea for a site offering discount gym memberships is introduced to a marketplace where consumers can use various daily deal and discount websites to find many products and services for a discount. Since its inception, FitTwin.com has focused on providing value to customers interested in getting in shape, regardless of their initial fitness level at an affordable price.
As the economy has soured over the last few years, gym memberships have fallen, often viewed as a discretionary expense. FitTwin.com’
s business model addresses this problem with a unique approach to discounting memberships and providing a community for healthy living. The FitTwin.com online facility finder allows customers to search for local gyms matching their specific needs and sign up for the best option at a discounted price. A 7-day, money-back guarantee on all new memberships for FitTwin.com users gives customers an opportunity to try a new workout facility without committing to a long-term membership contract. FitTwin.com currently offers discounted memberships at 7 Triangle area gyms and is negotiating with other area fitness locations.
In addition to discount gym memberships, FitTwin.com features a built-in social incentive to help motivate a user to reach their fitness goals. Registration with FitTwin.com allows customers to search for other users with similar workout routines and fitness goals. This free service is a key element in getting fit, as those who have someone to work out with are 52% more likely to continue in their fitness routine. The Twin Finder utilizes a community to track a user’s progress and provides information from licensed professionals regarding weight loss, nutrition and training using the “Ask An Expert” feature.
FitTwin.com realizes the potential for integrating the site with social media and will be providing additional features to the site including perks and incentives for logging workouts, checking in and more.
FitTwin was founded in 2011 with a mission to provide discounted gym memberships to consumers and an online community dedicated to promoting healthy living. For more information, contact FitTwin.com at (919) 297-2760.
