Plus One Launches "Green" Path to Health and Wellness

Industry Leader's ECOfitness Approach First to Bring Environmental Awareness to Corporate Fitness Center Design, Development and Operation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 25, 2007) - Plus One Health Management Inc. has formally launched ECOfitness, the most extensive approach to "green" design, development, and management of corporate fitness centers and wellness programs. This approach most recently guided the opening of theClub, Hearst Corporation's full service wellness facility located in the Hearst Tower. The Hearst Tower serves as the first occupied building in New York City to be certified "Gold" under the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System.

ECOfitness ensures that energy conservation and the use of "green" products play an integral part in the overall fitness center project. Elements of ECOfitness can include the use of self-powered exercise equipment, reducing the need for electricity, as well as the installation of flooring and lockers made of recycled materials.

By combining ECOfitness with Plus One's dynamic suite of wellness programs, large organizations can see significant long term cost savings. In addition to the increased productivity achieved through improved employee health, the involvement of Plus One's design professionals at the earliest stages of development can ensure the most sustainable design for the facility.

"Plus One's partnership with organizations like the Hearst Corporation demonstrate that a company's wellness goals do not need to be separate from their green initiatives," says Plus One CEO and Founder Mike Motta. "We are proud that our ECOfitness approach allows us to maintain our focus of helping members achieve their health and fitness goals, while at the same time reducing our overall impact on the environment."

Plus One is currently engaged in a number of ECOfitness projects for corporations throughout the country. The ultimate goal of ECOfitness is to educate all Plus One employees, clients, and members and encourage environmentally responsible behavior both inside and outside of the workplace.
