I have something special to share with you. For the past 6 months I have been working on an exciting fitness project with a new, innovative company. There have been many challenges and learning lessons in our mission to bring fitness to everyone. FINALLY we have released our product to the public. I am happy to announce that YUFIT.COM has launched.
Yufit is a gym, in the cloud. It offers a variety of fitness classes streamed on-demand in high-definition, to your home, while you’re traveling, or wherever you have an Internet connection. A membership to YuFit allows you to workout where you want, when you want, and how you want. All of the classes are new twice a week, each taught by an engaging, high-quality instructor. It also provides an opportunity to interact with instructors, other members, and connect through social media.
Yufit is a creative and exciting company that aspires to make fitness more accessible for everybody. The best way to describe the company’s concept and mission is to share the following press-release from their launch date January 10, 2012:
“Gym In The Cloud Streams Way to A Better Body”
Fun and engaging fitness classes, streamed in high-definition, available where you want and when you want, provides the ultimate flexibility in exercise at a fraction of the cost of gyms or workout DVDs
January 10, 2012– San Francisco, Calif. – Get a fresh start on your 2012 New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and get fit with Yufit, a new, first-of-its-kind online fitness experience in the cloud. Yufit integrates convenient access to a wide variety of fitness classes, streamed on-demand in high-definition, with social networking tools to help you stay motivated and make fitness enjoyable. With Yufit, members exercise where they want, when they want, and to what they want, at a fraction of the cost of gyms or popular workout DVDs.,
According to The President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, 37% of U.S. adults are not physically active and only 30% get the recommended amount of physical activity. The International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association says that less than 25% of Americans belong to a gym, and of those, less than 40% attend on a regular basis. Yufit brings the gym to your door so that you can conveniently integrate fitness into your busy life at an affordable cost.
“As an experienced personal trainer, I’ve seen first-hand how powerful fitness can be in changing peoples’ lives,” said Yu Hannah Kim, President and co-founder of Yufit. “High quality fitness instruction shouldn’t be limited only to those with more time, self-motivation and financial resources. I wanted to help the millions who find that working out and living a healthy lifestyle can often be inconvenient, boring, and expensive. Yufit was born with the mission to bring fitness to you, so you can finally live your best life.”
How It Works
A membership to Yufit provides unlimited access to multiple gym-quality fitness classes, led by five fun and engaging instructors, with more instructors and classes to be added in the first quarter of 2012. Yufit’s classes are 30 or 60 minutes in length, and include Yoga Flow, Buns & Thighs (a lower body toning class), Cardio Kickboxing, Balletone, Power Body (a total body workout), and more. Classes cater to every fitness level and interest. Each class is updated twice a week so workouts are always fresh, similar to working out at a traditional gym, but without the commute or the crowds.
Once a member has signed up, she receives her own personal dashboard, which enables her to easily enter her favorite classes, manage her workouts, and interact directly with instructors and other Yufit members. Members can also integrate their account with their Facebook page, enabling their social graph to appear on their dashboard. The site is rich with blogs and videos from the instructors, with a variety of tips and advice on living a healthier life. Members can direct questions back to the instructors via the site’s newsfeed.
Visitors to Yufit can sign up for a free 14-day trial with no credit card required to sign up for the trial. After the trial period, and for a limited time, Yufit is only $9.99/month for one year (regularly $14.99/month).

With my special code, CAR112, you will be able to trial the site two weeks for FREE. I cant think of a better reason to come workout online with me and I would LOVE to hear what you think of our new website. Check out Yufit.com and leave me a comment below with your experience and opinions. I cant wait to hear what you think of my new “GYM”!
Do you currently have a gym membership? Are at home or traveling workouts part of your routine? Would you join a site like Yufit.com?
YuFit is a cutting edge company with a dream of bringing quality fitness to everybody. I feel lucky to be part of the team and I look forward to what the future brings. For me, most exciting thing about Yufit is that it provides me with another opportunity to connect with YOU. My mission is to build COMMUNITY through movement. To create a fitness fellowship of encouragement, support, education, and inspiration. Im sure there will be many obstacles and challenges to overcome on my path towards this goal. I am forever grateful to have your support and look forward to a healthier future with YOU!
