The Phyzseek Story

Our story is typical of many aging health and fitness buffs. We worked out for years, watched what we ate, with the occasional splurges, but as we got older we seemed to be losing the battle. Fat was starting to accumulate around the mid-section, fatigue was setting in earlier in the day and sleep was restless. Oh, and it was obvious, hormone levels weren’t what they used to be. But why? We thought we ate right and kept fit. How could we turn the tables to regain the strength and energy we had when we were younger?

At about this time we were introduced to a well-known boot camp style high intensity workout program. The exercise program was very different than anything we had ever done and the results we were seeing were amazing. We had lost weight, gained lean muscle mass, and had more energy. Unfortunately, the exercise program also included heavy weights and Olympic style lifting, which combined with workouts measured by speed and number of reps, eventually took its toll on our bodies. Due to frequent injuries, what began as the answer to our fitness woes, came to a sudden end.

Now what? With backgrounds in medicine and analytics as well as a passion for working out and staying fit, we were determined to find a better way to enhance our levels of fitness while maintaining functional longevity. We studied the science, researched methodologies, tested theories and eventually discovered Phyzseek.

Phyzseek Fitness App Approved & Launched in iTunes App Store

August 16, 2016 (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) – WellFit Holdings, the developer of fitness technologies that help battle the global obesity & diabetes epidemics by assisting people to overcome common barriers preventing them from getting fit, has launched the Phyzseek mobile fitness app in the iTunes App Store (Download App Here).  After more than a year of development and successful completion of four phases of Beta testing, for which 250 people signed up to participate, the Phyzseek mobile fitness app has reached major milestones of App store approval and commercial launch.  The app’s workouts are based on Phyzseek’s Sustainable High Intensity Functional Training (SHIFT) program, which was developed by a doctor and based on current exercise science (Phyzseek White Paper).

Phyzseek’s SHIFT program is very effective at helping users to burn fat & calories, build lean muscle & improve functional longevity.  The app provides fun but challenging, short duration, daily workouts with detailed videos as well as alternatives and modifications for each exercise. Using its one-touch technology, the app effortlessly measures, captures & tracks all workout results without the user having to perform the tedious task of logging daily workout information. The user-programmed pacer & color-coded heart rate monitor motivate users to work out with intensity even when they’re working out alone.  Users can compete with people from all over the world & easily track their results using proprietary performance and heath metrics.  Fitness progress, health parameters and workout results can be easily viewed and analyzed using Phyzseek’s easy-to-understand Fitness & Workout Dashboards.  And, the built-in social network offers support from friends, allows members to post their successes and provides a way for users of the app to interact.

Eric J. Ende, MD, co-founder/CEO stated, “When we started developing the Phyzseek mobile platform over a year ago, we set out to design a sustainable high intensity functional training program that was highly effective at rapidly burning calories and fat and building lean muscle while promoting functional longevity.  Recognizing that many barriers exist that prevent people from achieving success with a fitness program, Phyzseek’s unique features were designed to overcome these common obstacles.  As we achieve proof of concept in the marketplace, we plan to use the Phyzseek platform to expand our reach by launching additional apps that target increasingly larger groups of individuals and gyms looking to differentiate themselves.  And, as the use of new fitness technologies become more widespread, we plan to provide additional unique features.”

Chad LaBonte, co-founder/COO commented, “The Phyzseek mobile app represents a fitness technology platform that uses real-time workout and health metric data to show proof of progress, promote competition and foster social interaction, which is then used to motivate people to work out consistently and with the intensity needed to get results.  Workouts are based on a doctor-developed, science-driven high intensity functional training program that is a time-efficient and convenient way for people to achieve their fitness goals.”
