Fitness Industry Embraces Competitive Workouts with The Fitness Games

New York, N.Y. (PRUnderground) November 27th, 2014

Arya Farzin, co-founder of award-winning app The Fitness Games, announced today that his weight loss success is due to his strong support system. Before becoming a fitness expert and trainer, Farzin weighed 365 lbs.

“After breaking dozens of chairs, having to shop at Big And Tall, and being diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, I decided to make a change, but I needed help,” Farzin said. “Without someone pushing for me to succeed, I could still be that heavy.”

Farzin lost 200 lbs after moving in with a relative who wanted to help him on his weight loss journey. Through diet, an intensive exercise regime of cardio and weight lifting along with emotional support Farzin lost the weight and became active in the health industry as a personal trainer and entrepreneur. He now maintains his weight at a healthy 190 lbs.

“Building out a system of active advocates is our way of paying it forward.” co-founder Joseph Phillips said. “As personal trainers we know that nothing lights a fire under someone like competing with your friend over bragging rights.”
