Denver’s Unleaded Group Adds Extra Octane to Web Design

Born as Unleaded Software in a basement in 1996, like so many of the earliest internet ventures, the Denver-based Unleaded Group has grown into an industry-leading web development company with over 40 staff members in offices in Denver and Ahmedabad, India and a client list spanning four continents. To highlight the company’s expanded capabilities and growth, the Unleaded Group launched a complete redesign of its website in June to a Responsive format.

Responsive Design is a process by which websites are coded as they’re built to recognize how an online shopper is connecting to the internet—by a desktop computer, cell phone or tablet. Once detected, the site’s contents automatically populate to fit the fit the appropriately-sized screen—from wide to mid-size to narrow. As growing numbers of shoppers do their shopping on the internet, companies like Unleaded work to maximize their clients’ exposure on search engines such as Google giving them the tools to convert those shoppers into buyers—the newest innovation being Responsive Design.

“Customers don’t want to shop on sites where they can’t use links and buttons without zooming or excessive scrolling, where images are too small to see, or where navigation is difficult or confusing—all things that happen when a website not built on a Responsive or mobile platform,” said Jarod Clark, founder and president of the Unleaded Group.

Google is behind the rush to go Responsive. The dominant search engine internet-wide, Google controls how online searches function. About 1 ½ years ago, Google announced the upcoming change that would require that websites be mobile or Responsive to appear on a list of search findings. Then in early 2015, Google made the switch, altering its algorithm to eliminate non-mobile or Responsive sites from any search conducted on a phone or tablet.

Statista.com, a statistics portal, announced “Worldwide mobile phone internet user penetration reached 73.4 percent in 2013. That number is expected to jump to 90+ percent by 2017.”

“By making its site adaptable (Responsive or mobile), a business guarantees itself a higher ranking in search results,” Clark noted.

Once a shopper lands on a website, it’s crucial that they’re able to move quickly to things that interest them and buy those things easily and securely. This becomes the job of Unleaded’s team of content managers and site developers. “On a website, especially on a small screen like a cell phone, a picture is literally worth a thousand words,” said Leon Averbukh, Unleaded’s Director of Digital Marketing. “By using strong images, we can help a shopper recognize things they want and quickly direct them to the products they want to buy.”

While there are several ready-made templates for building websites—platforms, in the trade jargon—Unleaded’s true expertise is in customized design for Magento, ExpressionEngine or hybrids of the two. “We integrate the best features of each platform to net a site that’s optimized for a customer’s specific needs,” Clark said.

Magento is the leading ecommerce platform, ExpressionEngine is Unleaded’s preferred content managed solution. “Magento is used to power some of the most respected online businesses—like e-Bay, for instance—and is the platform of choice for nearly every serious seller on the internet.” One of the earliest Magento affiliates, Unleaded boasts 11 Magento-certified developers on its staff. “We grew alongside Magento and are experts at integrating its robust e-commerce capabilities with other content management systems like Expression Engine and Craft for large and small clients alike.”

The Unleaded Group includes a solar-powered internet hosting company, Beanstalk Solar Hosting, as well as its Octane India division and was recently awarded Gold Star Certification from the Denver/Boulder Better Business Bureau.

Burwood Group adds Zadara Enterprise Storage-as-a-Service to their Portfolio

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

Burwood Group and Zadara Storage, the provider of enterprise-class storage-as-a-service (STaaS), today announced that Zadara’s award-winning Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) platform is now being offered as part of Burwood’s storage as a service offering.

Burwood Group has built a strong reputation for helping organizations apply technology as a strategic tool to create efficiencies and competitive advantage. As companies become more reliant on their exponentially growing data, they are recognizing that the traditional approach of purchasing large storage arrays and then managing and maintaining those complex devices has become inefficient and will not scale. Many of these companies are turning to the cloud to address this problem, and are quickly realizing the answer is not exclusively going cloud or on-premise, but more of a hybrid model incorporating the best of both environments. Burwood has selected Zadara Storage as their partner to solve this customer problem. By offering the Zadara enterprise storage as a service platform, their customers will now have a solution that will address the scalability, manageability and economic limitations of traditional storage arrays, that incorporates a unified cloud and on-premise, software defined storage (SDS) solution known as Zadara Storage VPSA.

“As the trusted advisor to our clients, Burwood’s role is to work with them to solve their most challenging information technology and business issues,” said Mark Pingry, managed services managing consultant at Burwood Group. “We developed Burwood storage as a service, powered by Zadara Storage, to address one of the most critical and costly challenges facing IT organizations today: expensive, complex, and inefficient data storage. In many markets, but particularly Healthcare, data storage demand is growing at such a pace that you can no longer be reactive. You must offer solutions that are on-demand, elastic, easy to use, and cost effective. Burwood storage as a service, powered by Zadara Storage, gives control of this data sprawl back to our clients in an easy to use, cost effective, consumption based pricing model.”

“We are extremely pleased to be adding Burwood Group to our family of partners,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “Burwood’s deep knowledge of corporate IT organizations makes them an excellent partner for Zadara Storage. Their ability to align our technology with customers who need it most, creates value for key customers facing critical storage challenges.”

“Our research shows that storage as a service offerings such as Zadara Storage create significant and compelling economic benefits”, said Randy Kerns, senior strategist and analyst at the Evaluator Group. “Zadara Storage offers a unique value over many of the as-a-service solutions in that they provide the enterprise features users have come to expect from their traditional storage arrays. With Zadara’s VPSA offering, users maintain the same, or better, enterprise class high-availability and disaster recovery capabilities as they have on their current storage arrays.”

Premier Fitness Center Image Bodybuilding in Boulder, CO Rebrands as Image TRX Sport and Adds Dynamic New TRX Workouts to Class Schedule


Boulder, CO (PRWEB) December 30, 2014

Originally founded as Image Bodybuilding in Boulder, CO, in 2010, owner Stacey Purifoy, a former heli-rappeller (which is a firefighter who rappels from a helicopter–similar to a smokejumper), recently rebranded her business as Image TRX Sport to cater to a wider audience with goals of weight loss, strength training, and athletic conditioning.

Image TRX Sport is Boulder’s premier fitness center specializing in TRX workouts using the TRX suspension trainer system. They have over 20 TRX suspension trainer systems positioned away from the facility’s walls, which provides the necessary space for a full range of motion during exercise.

TRX workouts consist of a full body workout using the resistance of one’s own body weight. Classes are customized to individuals with weight loss goals, sport specific goals, injury rehabilitation, and overall fitness. TRX is easy to understand and use, yet can offer a full body workout for beginners all the way up to professional athletes as it blends resistance and cardio training.

Image TRX Sport’s goal is to create trust, honesty, and satisfaction with all clients, and also build an environment where an individual can experience ultimate training and health benefits. Alongside owner Stacey Purifoy, Image TRX Sport now has a total of six certified TRX instructors, which allows for a wide variety of TRX instructor feedback. All fitness instructors at Image TRX Sport are TRX certified for both individual and group training.

“We would love to say thank you to Team Lovato Performance (Elite Triathlete team) for being part of our team here at Image TRX Sport and we look forward to a long partnership together,” says Stacey Purifoy, owner of Image TRX Sport. “Image TRX Sport really enjoys working with some of the most advanced athletes in the country; it’s exciting that we are able to help these incredible athletes with improvements in their sport!”

Octane Fitness New xRide


Brooklyn Park, Minn. (PRWEB) December 02, 2014

After reinventing seated exercise with the creation of the unprecedented xRide recumbent elliptical in 2008, Octane Fitness, LLC, has launched its new xRide series for home use, now featuring compatibility with Octane’s SmartLink app.

“The xRide is an outstanding way to cross train – and definitely one of the most effective ways to work the entire body while seated,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness. “Now SmartLink adds customized workout regimens that motivate, add variety and drive results for every level exerciser.”

The three new xRide recumbent ellipticals feature an intuitive console that simultaneously displays all workout data, so users don’t have to toggle between screens to view progress. On the xR6xi model, Octane’s exclusive SmartLight technology shows exercisers how hard they are working, if they are in their target heart rate zone and when to prepare for the next interval during a Workout Booster. And exercisers who want to multi-task can take advantage of several placement options for a tablet.

The xR6xi is compatible with SmartLink, Octane’s intelligent, free app that connects to and controls the elliptical from an iPad®. Users choose from four workout categories – Lose Weight, Feel Better, Get Stronger and Athletic Performance – and specify a 30-, 60- or 90-day program, and SmartLink creates customized workouts geared toward exercisers’ goals, recalibrating if necessary to ensure progress.

SmartLink also adds coaching to the X-Mode™, Chest Press and Leg Press Workout Boosters to help exercisers focus on proper form during each interval.

For convenience, SmartLink can run in the background, so exercisers can watch a movie, surf the Internet or send email during workouts – while SmartLink keeps running. Bluetooth® 4.0 connects SmartLink to the xRide, as well as to other devices, such as heart rate monitors.

Exercisers can enter their individual data, favorite workouts and preferred feedback display into the app. Workout results are recorded in the app, so users can monitor progress and boast on social networks with the social share function. Be Fit tips and instructional videos on various Octane workouts are also included.

Free app updates add greater workout variety over time, helping exercisers to stay motivated.

Innovation That Fuels

Accommodating every exerciser, the Active Seat Position™ on the xRide has multiple height and tilt adjustments for comfortable customization.

Octane’s signature PowerStroke™ technology results in 23% more calories burned and 343% more glute activation than on a recumbent bike. The patented MultiGrip handlebars offer several positions to maximize comfort and fully engage the upper body for a total-body challenge, and stationary foot pegs enable exercisers to periodically isolate the upper body while resting the legs.

With 20 resistance levels to meet the needs of all users, the xRide equips exercisers to perform leisurely rides or go all-out with a variety of training routines, from Beginner to 30:30 Interval, a challenging athletic program.

The new xRide recumbent ellipticals are sold at specialty fitness retailers throughout the United States with MSRPs of $ 4,299 for the xR6xi, $ 3,899 for the xR6x and $ 2,899 for the xR4x. The free SmartLink app for the xRide will be available in December at iTunes® at http://bit.ly/octanesmartlink.

Octane Fitness Background

Relentlessly fueled to reinvent zero-impact cardiovascular exercise, Octane Fitness has perfected the elliptical machine, introduced a new category with the xRide® recumbent elliptical, designed strength-infused cardio with the unique CROSS CiRCUIT®, created exercise in a new direction with the LateralX®, reinvented running with the Zero Runner® and is leading smarter training with SmartLink™. Defined by standout innovations, and driven to deliver more effective, efficient and rewarding workouts, Octane is engineering elliptical domination.
