BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - December 11, 2015) - Last week the YMCA of Florida's First Coast launched the first virtual YMCA membership in the nation. This innovative offering is the result of a partnership between the First Coast YMCA and Daxko, a leading provider of mission critical software to YMCAs nationwide.
While the vast majority of Americans are committed to improving their health, 82% are not joining a fitness facility to do so (IHRSA 2014). "We are excited to offer a relevant and scalable solution in Daxko Well to help our valued partners like the YMCA of Florida's First Coast to take their mission of healthy living beyond the walls of the facility and deeper into their communities," says David Gray, President & CEO of Daxko.
Eric Mann, President & CEO of the First Coast YMCA shares, "We are excited to launch this new virtual solution to enhance our current members' experience and to reach other potential members outside the walls of our Ys. With this technology, we will be able to help even more members of our community achieve their healthy living goals through virtual challenges, personalized nutrition plans, rich content, and social engagement."
Daxko Well, branded by the YMCA as My Y on Demand, will offer users the complete Y experience anywhere, anytime through a website and mobile app which features personalized fitness and nutrition plans, group exercise classes and meet-ups as well as social and volunteer opportunities. High performers using the platform lose up to 20 pounds and 9% of their BMI and more importantly improve their fitness level over 100% in 6 months.
