Announces Over 4000 New Listings in First 30 Days

Veteran Internet Fitness Directory Expands Rapidly After Relaunch -

San Diego, Calif., May 1, 2001 — announced today that over 4000 new listings have been added to their FindFitness Directory since the feature went live on their new web site last month. The FindFitness Directory is the only online global directory that features fitness trainers, facilities, suppliers and organizations in one Web location. The directory currently has over 29,000 listings.

"We've had a very strong response from industry suppliers," said Marti West, President and CEO. "At a time when the fitness market is relatively soft, companies are taking a hard look at their marketing and advertising budgets. While some sites offer similar Web page listings, they require expenditures anywhere from $500 to $20,000, without providing the centralized visibility available at For $19.95 a month for suppliers and facilities, and just $9.95 a month for trainers, our Web page listings are a tremendous value."

The new listings include both standard and upgraded Web page listings, in all categories. Web page listings provide subscribers with:
• Prioritized placement in search results
• Information about services, products, or professional qualifications
• An optional photo and/or logo
• Links to a current email address and Web site

The directory services were unveiled to an enthusiastic audience at the recent IHRSA trade show in San Francisco, Calif. Personal trainer Darlene Conley echoed the enthusiasm of many. "I'm a solo personal trainer, with no real budget for advertising. Having my personal Web page listing at not only provides an opportunity for new clients to find me, but allows me to post my qualifications and have a professional Web presence at a very inexpensive price."

As part of its IHRSA premiere, held a drawing for free lifetime Web page subscriptions in each category. The winners are:
Trainer: Thom Sikorski, New Orleans, LA
Facility: Weston Fitness, Philadelphia, PA
Supplier: Shuttle Systems, Glacier, WA
Organization: National Association of Professional Martial Artists (NAPMA), Clearwater, FL

In addition to the new listings from U.S.-based industry members, has had a tremendous response from international fitness companies. "Everyone likes the idea of a centralized directory," says Executive Vice President, Petra Robinson. "In the last 30 days we've added facility listings for more that 15 countries, and are currently in development of the technology that will allow us to offer internationally, the multi-category listing and search capabilities that we now offer for the U.S."
