Physical inactivity is estimated to cause 2 million deaths worldwide annually due to chronic diseases such as heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes and colon cancer.

The sedentary nature of many Americans is a contributor to the rising cost of health care.

Quick Fit Products, LLC seeks to change America's exercise habits with their award-winning DVD "Quick Fit: The Complete 15-Minute No-Sweat Workout."

Recent research from the American Medical Association indicates a mere 1-2 hours of exercise is enough to reduce heart disease -- a much smaller number than previously believed. Quick Fit's program includes 105 minutes (1.75 hours) of targeted exercises per week.

The Quick Fit DVD has received recognition in two distinct categories, "How To/Instructional" and "Health and Wellness" from the prestigious Telly Awards, which honors the very best local, regional and cable television commercials, as well as the finest video and film productions.

In addition to the Telly awards, "Quick Fit: The Complete 15-Minute No-Sweat Workout DVD" is the winner of the 2006 Communicator Award of Distinction, an international competition recognizing outstanding work in the Communications industry.

Corporations are recognizing the benefits of offering the Quick Fit program to their employees. A major company in Montgomery County, MD reported a 20% reduction in health-care costs after implementing the Quick Fit program in their organization. With health care costs increasing at a rate between 7% - 9% annually, Quick Fit is a method many employers are putting in place to help curb costly expenses.

Quick Fit offers a range of supplemental products and services to complement their award-winning DVD. The innovative Quick Fit deck is a 4" x 6" laminated booklet that contains a complete illustration of all the Quick Fit exercises, muscle descriptions, instructional tips, and tracking calendar. The deck is designed to be a unique tool - portable, palm-sized and packed with information.
