Liberty Fitness Wants Local Women to Show Their Hearts Some Love

Portions of Enrollment Fees in February to Be Donated to Local AHA Chapters

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 15, 2006 --Liberty Fitness wants local women to "go" with their hearts and support awareness of the impact of heart disease on women.

Liberty Fitness is supporting the American Heart Association's "Go Red" campaign by donating portions of all the enrollment fees the company collects in February to local AHA chapters.

"Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, taking the lives of over 500,000 women every year," said Liberty Harper, founder of Liberty Fitness. "But cardiovascular disease is also something that can be prevented with a proper diet and exercise."

Liberty Fitness is encouraging women to take action against cardiovascular disease by visiting your local Liberty Fitness and getting more details about the Go Red campaign.

"It really starts with knowing your numbers," Harper said. "We want everyone to contact their doctors and find out their cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose counts, body mass index and blood pressure."

To help their new clients know their heart rate numbers, Liberty Fitness will also offer a free Polar heart rate monitor for enrollees in February.

Another important number is 30. The AHA recommends a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise a day for as many days as possible per week. Thirty minutes also happens to be the length of the Liberty Fitness workout.

The Liberty Fitness Core Circuit consists of eleven recovery stations and eleven 6-level adjustable hydraulic machines, each designed and constructed by Liberty Fitness.

"We want to give the members of Liberty Fitness all the tools they need to be successful in a healthy life style," Harper said.
