PEAR Sports Develops Interactive Fitness App For Lindora Weight Loss Patients & Others Seeking To Improve Their Health


Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

PEAR Sports, the leading developer of audio-based coaching technology, is partnering with Lindora, the largest medically supervised weight loss program in the U.S., to introduce an interactive personalized training app that offers users customized exercise plans while tracking their progress. Scheduled for release on April 8, the official Lindora Lean for Life! Fitness App goes beyond others in the marketplace, as it offers real-time audio fitness coaching and motivation through the user’s iPhone. In addition, it keeps them on track, motivates them and records their progress.

The exercise plans were developed by fitness leaders Robert Reames, head trainer, nutritionist and lifestyle consultant for “The Dr. Phil Show,” and Jenny Hadfield, celebrated author and authority on running and regular columnist for runnersworld.com. They focus on heart rate-based training, which has long been acknowledged as one of the most accurate and effective methods for helping users reach their goals.

The Lindora Lean for Life! Fitness App offers a library of customized exercise plans for those at any fitness level and delivers real-time stats like time, distance, heart rate, current zone, pace, calories burned and more. It also allows users to track and share their progress and results.

“The workouts are based on how your heart responds to exercise,” said Reames. “The Official Lindora Lean for Life! Fitness app guides you step by step, telling you when to speed up or slow down, provides useful tips to improve your form, explains the purpose and benefits of the workout and keeps you motivated. Another great feature is you don’t have to calculate or remember any numbers to perform your workouts effectively as the app will do it all for you.”

“Lindora has more than 40 years of experience helping patients lose weight through a proven treatment program involving proper diet, managing stress and moving more,” said Anthony Tavaglione, director of product management and operations, who added that the app is the “logical extension” of Lindora’s one-on-one, personalized approach to patient care. “The official Lindora Lean for Life! Fitness App was designed to make the ‘moving more’ part of that formula easier, more fun and more effective. Our expert, world-class coaches will guide users through each workout giving them all the encouragement and tips they will need to make it fun and effective.”

“We’re delighted to offer a game-changing new tool that will make it easier and more fun for people to become and stay active,” said Lindora President and CEO Cynthia Stamper Graff. “This app is engaging, easy to use and will have a really positive impact on those committed to losing weight and becoming more active.”
