Lose It! Partners With Rise to Give Members Personalized Nutrition Coaching Services

Partnership Pairs Lose It! Weight Loss Program With Rise's Network of Registered Dietitians for Individualized Coaching, Advice and Support

BOSTON, MA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2015) - Lose It!, the most comprehensive, app-based weight loss program, and Rise, a one-on-one personalized nutrition coaching service, today announced a partnership to offer Rise coaching services for Lose It! users who want additional, more personalized support and accountability from a registered dietitian. As a part of the partnership, all of Lose It!'s 24 million members can share their calorie and exercise tracking data with one of Rise's licensed coaches to receive individualized feedback, advice, recipe ideas and even fitness suggestions.

"Lose It! is all about giving our members weight loss that fits their life and goals," said Charles Teague, co-founder and CEO of Lose It!. "Some people just want to track their calories and stay on budget; others are looking for more advice, support and professional guidance. Coaching is a natural extension of our program and integrating Rise, the category leader, is another step in our digital health and fitness strategy. They've cracked the code on delivering a personalized, high-quality coaching service in an efficient and affordable way and we are excited for our members to benefit from this great new service."

Most health and fitness apps today focus solely on recording and tracking data, without providing users the context and color they need to make smart choices. The future of health and fitness apps lies in their ability to provide users with that context, and use the data collected to give them actionable intelligence that will help them meet their goals. The partnership between Lose It! and Rise is the first significant step toward this new generation of intelligent, personalized health and fitness services. Both Rise and Lose It! have strategic partnerships with a variety of leading health and fitness brands, employers and medical institutions.

"Lose It! and Rise are both committed to delivering an easy, convenient, and personalized way for people to reach their health goals, regardless of age, location or lifestyle, so working together was a natural fit," said Suneel Gupta, founder and CEO of Rise. "Up until now, health and fitness apps have been focused solely on recording and tracking data. We're excited to partner with Lose It! because we believe that giving people personalized advice and feedback on specific food choices will allow them to build even more healthy, sustainable habits for life."
