Online PR News – 31-January-2011 –Seven-Time Olympic Medalist Shannon Miller’s company Shannon Miller Lifestyle (SML) and Tom Bush Family of Dealerships have launched a free walking program with Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton. Shannon Miller’s Walk-Fit Program presented by Tom Bush Family of Dealerships is a free, online tracking and rewards program that is designed to help people achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Anyone can sign-up free at http://shannonmillerlifestyle.com/walk-fit/ and receive an SML pedometer at select community events or through the SML online store, http://shannonmillerlifestyle.com/store.
Over the past year, Shannon Miller Lifestyle (SML) talked to thousands of people about their health and fitness needs. The company received the overwhelming response that people need help getting started on a healthy and balanced lifestyle. That’s why SML created the Walk-Fit Program.
“I am so excited to announce my online Walk-Fit Program! Walking is a great way to lose weight—and keep it off,” said Miller. “I’m competitive so I love counting steps. I can compete with myself everyday to see how many steps I can log.”
“For over 40 years, giving back to our community has been paramount to Tom Bush Family of Dealerships. Shannon Miller’s Walk-Fit Program hopes to inspire the Jacksonville community to become one of America’s healthiest cities; something the Tom Bush Family strongly supports,” said Tom Bush Family of Dealerships General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Telis Assimenios.
“I am so grateful for the support we have received from the Jacksonville community for my Walk-Fit Program! Making fitness convenient and fun will help all of us stick with it. And it’s always nice to be rewarded for your hard work,” said Miller.
According to the US Surgeon General, 10,000 steps a day is the goal to maintain a healthy weight. Two studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association have confirmed that this lifestyle approach can be as effective as a traditional exercise program. Many doctors and researchers have found that wearing a pedometer is a great way to track your daily activity and inspire you to move more. Increasing your daily steps can give you more energy, less stress, reduce weight and decrease your chance of developing diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension.
