Make Mississippi Fit Day
The owners of MAKE IT FIT, an online fitness and wellness resource, are helping all Mississippians build healthier lifestyles in 2009 by donating their services for almost nothing. Principals Stacy Bick and Rebecca Johnson are offering all residents of the Magnolia state an annual membership to www.youcanmakeitfit.com for only 99 cents if they sign up during the hours of 8am to 8pm on Tuesday, January 6, 2009.
Residents who log onto the site on "Make Mississippi Fit Day" and sign up for the virtually free membership will immediately have access to a large library of streaming fitness videos, podcasts, and printable workouts, along with other nutrition and weight management tools.
"A membership to MAKE IT FIT is normally priced at $14.95 per month," said Principal Stacy Bick. "Offering it almost free to an entire state is an unprecedented event for us, but one we feel is essential to our ultimate goal of helping Americans improve their physical fitness and better manage their weight."
"We are also offering the businesses and corporations in Mississippi a special discount for signing up for MAKE IT FIT Corporate plans," said Rebecca Johnson, co-owner and principal of MAKE IT FIT. "We have unique corporate packages that provide an affordable way for companies to include MAKE IT FIT in their employee wellness programs, thereby keeping employees more physically fit and reducing costs related to productivity and healthcare."
The idea for "Make Mississippi Fit Day" stemmed from the recent news out of the Center for Disease Control ranking the Magnolia state as the heaviest U.S. state for the third consecutive year. There are classes and workouts suited for all fitness levels, including currently sedentary or very overweight individuals. Early in 2009, MAKE IT FIT will add a structured Beginner's Program that will guide those new to exercise through a several-month progression designed to help them gradually add more activity into their lives in a way that is suitable for their fitness level.
