An exciting new service at traineo - Introducing traineoPLUS

Hi All,

We've been quite quiet recently so apologies for the lack of noise!

We're excited to let you know that the reason for the lack of announcements and why we haven't launched any significant features for a month or so is because we've been focused on developing an exciting new version of traineo.

Whilst you've been enjoying the summer, the traineo team has been working on significant advancements to the core of traineo in an effort to build you a much more effective weight loss and fitness solution. Before we jump into the details of the product we wanted to share some of the logic behind the development.

As a team, we've been thrilled to see so many users involved with traineo and most importantly so many users literally changing their lives through commitment and motivation that the site provides. At the same time, we've been conscious of the need to build a set of more valuable and useful tools to really help people to be more successful on their weight loss journey. In short, we asked ourselves the following key questions:

'When people are successful at losing weight what works and why?'

'How can we provide traineo users scientifically proven tools that support this formula?'

With that mission in mind, we've been working with weight loss experts and trainers to build traineoPLUS. The end result is something completely unique and exciting and we think many of you will find a new eye-opening way to lose weight and reach your goals...

How does traineoPLUS work?

We know how painstakingly hard it is to lose weight, pound by pound, towards an ideal goal, and watching the numbers on your scale fluctuate up and down can be at times exciting and then depressing. The new features of traineoPLUS will interpret those fluctuations for you and show you a running average of your weight change so that you can visually see a smoother transition of your efforts. On top of that, we will show you a projection of what your weight will be if you continue on that trend. When you see how far or close your actions are taking you to your goal, and the traineoPLUS calculated amount of calories that you will need to net per day to get there, we assure you that your outlook on dieting will change forever.

We've also supplemented this with personalized content from some of the world's top weight loss, diet, and fitness coaches who will be providing day by day guidance.

How can I get traineoPLUS?

Our plan is to release traineoPLUS within the next few weeks as a subscription level option. The cost of the subscription will be $9.99 / month and everyone will have an opportunity to try it absolutely free for 14 days.

Will I be able to still access traineo for free?

Yes. In fact, as part of this new platform you'll find that many of the existing free features will be enhanced too. We certainly want everyone to take advantage of the new service but by no means are we requiring it. We're grateful to have you all as a part of the community and always intend to offer a free version of the site.

We look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions regarding traineoPLUS. We also look forward to hearing your success stories after using the new tools!

Thank you for all of your support in advance.

The traineo Team
