Find Your Trainer Launches Online Platform to Find and Schedule Affordable Personal Trainers at Leading New York Health Clubs
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
Find Your Trainer (FYT) is a New York-based startup that is transforming the personal training industry by making the process of finding and booking a personal training session as easy as making a restaurant reservation or buying a plane ticket online, and at nearly half the cost as booking a session through the gym.
FYT recently launched in New York City at David Barton Gym, one of the premier health clubs in the country with locations across the United States. In the past month alone, over a dozen new gyms and private studios and over fifty personal trainers have joined the platform, with more joining every week. As demand for their platform continues to increase, FYT plans to work with other leading gym chains to expand nationwide.
With detailed personal trainer profiles that include photos, specialties, certifications and availability, FYT puts the choice of who to work out with and when into the hands of the customer. Users can also find private trainers for hard-to-find specialties like Pilates, yoga, triathlon, obstacle courses, boxing, nutrition, post-natal recovery and injury rehab. Customers can try out as many trainers as they wish until they find one they like, and in what might be a first for the health club industry, FYT users dont need to be a member of the gym to work out with its trainers.
We started FYT because we are big believers in the value of personal trainers in an increasingly health-conscious world. But while we are fans of personal training, we know that a lot more people would try it if the process of buying and scheduling personal training wasnt so outdated and difficult. Companies like Open Table, Travelocity, ZocDoc and Seamless have proven that the experience can and should be frictionless and affordable, said David Hung, CEO and co-founder of FYT.
The launch of FYT coincides with three major consumer trends:
????Increasing interest in exercise and fitness as consumers look to lead healthier lifestyles. Personal training is a $ 9 billion per year industry with over 230,000 trainers
????Countless e-commerce sites have shown that consumers increasingly favor using technology over human interaction when it comes to researching and purchasing products and services
????Companies like Gilt, Fab and Priceline have proven the strong consumer demand for getting a deal, coupled with a desire by businesses to monetize their excess inventory
FYTs easy-to-use online platform capitalizes on all three trends to deliver value to consumers, trainers and gyms alike.
FYT is for people who have thought about getting a personal trainer to help them achieve their fitness goals but never made the plunge, and for people who have trained in the past but need more flexibility with their schedules and wallets. Instead of having to buy an expensive multi-pack, FYT lets customers book individual training sessions with trainers at top gyms and studios all across New York. Since FYT helps trainers fill what would otherwise be downtime, customers are able to save up to 40% off regular prices, which are rarely less than $ 100 per session.
By booking new sessions, trainers are able to build their client base and significantly increase their income. Since only about five percent of gym members currently use a trainer, FYT also provides gyms a new and more effective channel through which to sell personal training to existing members. Not only does this drive incremental revenues, it also improves member satisfaction and reduces turnover. And by allowing non-members to book sessions and train at their gyms, FYT is a great source for highly-qualified new member leads.????
FYT (Find Your Trainer) is a NYC-based startup that makes booking a personal training session as easy as reserving a table. FYT works with leading health clubs and training studios to allow users to research personal trainers and book sessions online at significantly discounted prices, while making gyms and trainers more efficient and profitable.

Santa Rosa, CA (PRWEB) November 09, 2013
Countless studies and statistics, from the likes of Google, Brainshark, NAR, aimClear, SimplyMeasured and more, have established the relevance and popularity of video when it comes to online marketing and usability. And real estate is one of online videos most relevant industries. With the launch of Virtuetsthe latest brainchild from real estate web experts at Properties Onlineagents and other real estate professionals can capitalize on the popularity of video, regardless of their experience (or lack thereof) in creating video.
Landing pages with video have up to 800% more conversion than the same page without a video , and videos are shared 1,200% more times than links and text combined . And according to Brainshark, the information retained in one minute of online video is equal to about 1.8 million written words. Thats equal to an astounding 3,600 blog posts or web pages.
Research shows that video attracts two to three times as many monthly visitors and doubles the time those visitors spend on a site , says Amanda Cornelius, co-founder and CEO of Properties Online. We created Virtuets so that our users and clientsreal estate agents across the United Statescould attract more listings, serve their clients better and develop a stronger web presence using best practices and leading edge technology, no matter how technical the agent him or herself may be.
With Virtuets, agents have access to video success in 3 different ways:
1. Customized, Personal Promotion Videos for real estate agents;
2. Website video content for buyers and sellers, complete with customized call-to-action closing scenes; and
3. Property videos for each of the agents listings, through use of the simple to use listing video builder tool.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) tells us that 90% of homebuyers conduct their home search online. Internet users want video. The two go hand in hand, and Virtuets serves as matchmakers for busy real estate professionals who need to upgrade their online presence through video.

A few nice online rare books images I found:
History’s ‘yellow pages’ go online
Image by brizzle born and bred
Historical Directories is a digital library of local and trade directories for England and Wales, from 1750 to 1919. It contains high quality reproductions of comparatively rare books, essential tools for research into local and genealogical history.
Historical Directories is produced and owned by the University of Leicester.
Historical directories website
Bristol’s first directory, published in 1775, was the work of James Sketchley, a Small Street broker and auctioneer.
Concentrating largely on the names and addresses of merchants and tradesmen it’s a bit sparse, with a few private residences.
The first really useful directory to come along was Wright’s, in Victorian times.
The volumes contain some great advertising.
I have always been interested in the many different ways people share
online bits and pieces of rare or historic books. Personally, my
favorite way is just big image files, and I will browse thumbnails,
slog through and prowl around. I’m pretty hard core. However, most
people find that approach both inelegant and unsightly, perhaps not
the best way to engage a broader audience with these precious
artifacts. I think I’ve blogged before about the Flash book readers
and shown off some of the very lovely and wonderful materials
available this way. So far, it seems like each place that does this
uses a slightly different tool, the tools have similar but not
identical functionality, and worst of all – they cost money!
I heard rumors a while back about an opportunity coming up here at the
University of Michigan to put some of our rare books online in nice
ways. I didn’t hear very much, and didn’t realize that they were going
to SOLVE most of the problems with the Flash readers for rare books!
I’ve been flat on my back sick most of the past week, so I am not sure
exactly when this appeared, but I discovered it today. PictureIt is
free, Creative Commons software that is similar to the commercial
Flash ebook readers. They have put up the first book here at UM, which
is a copy of the Audubon that was the first major purchase of these
libraries, ever. As in way back in the 1800s.
One concern about a free, Creative Commons ebook reader is the
possibility of hurting the commercial market for those companies
already working in this area. There are folks who worked very hard to
come up with this idea. I think that is why they are not just posting
the software somewhere as a free download, but are instead giving it
to people who ask and who will be using it for a similar project or
product. The idea is to enable the public good, and how to do that
I like this. I like the idea of the product – empowering museums and
libraries that are underfunded and lack resources to make their
collections available online both attractively and without hurting
themselves in the process. I like that they are protecting the
interests of the commercial products at the same time they are
empowering the little. This is a very tricky balance, and shows great
sensitivity and insight. I like the interface, for the most part,
although (being me) I want a way to click through to a big version of
the full image for download. Yeah, um, well, call me greedy. I do
understand the reasons they aren’t doing this (especially since they
explain the copyright of the images on the website. Creative Commons
doesn’t mean they are giving away everything. In the case of the
Audubon book, while we do own the book, it made sense to use someone
else’s digitized version of the book, rather than handle the UM copy
I took a few screenshots to show the functionality. I show the initial
presentation, some of the page turning, and some of the different zoom
levels. I love this book, and couldn’t decide exactly which pictures
showed it off to the best advantage, so rather than decide, there are
a bunch of pics at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
