“Peak 10″ and the “Peak Fit System” – What’s the difference?Categories: Latest News
For those of you who have questions about all that is Peak – Read on.
First a little background on my personal journey to get Peak Fit. When I was a new mom with very young children (one with special needs), I found little time and energy to focus on my own personal health and wellbeing. My “new normal” left me feeling lethargic, out of shape and emotionally low. The only way for me to manage taking care of myself was to start working out at home.
This experience fueled my desire to create programming that would give those who sorta “threw in the towel”, a way to get it back. I wanted the most direct route for people to feel and look their best. I know when we feel good about ourselves, everything is easier, our spirit is lifted and we feel like we can take on new challenges. My journey began with the “Your Body Breakthru Series” which really did get me feeling closer to the “old me” again.
With the Peak 10 series, I wanted to take my home workouts to a whole new level with a program that would leave the home exerciser in the best shape of their life , not only with a body they loved, but more importantly a feeling of empowerment, accomplishment and a passion to take on whatever life threw their way. I also knew I wanted real results so I “tested” the program on some of our health club members at Breakthru Fitness in Pasadena, California and the results far surpassed my expectations. Peak 10 not only became a home workout program, but the demand from our health club members also led me to create the 8-week club version we continue to run 3 times a year. In fact the program is so well received we are starting to spread the “club version of Peak 10” to other health clubs around the country.
We originally filmed the first 2 DVDs in the series (Peak 10 Cardio Strength and Peak 10 Cardio Interval Burn) while looking for companies to help us produce and distribute the full 10 DVD home workout system. This system would include other supporting workouts that improve strength, cardiovascular endurance as well as flexibility. We knew with a company partnering with us we could get the consumer price point down to a more affordable one than if we produced and distributed all 10 DVDs ourselves.
Self producing and distributing DVDs is costly and we knew we could not offer the full series on our own for less than $19.99 per DVD, not to mention the additional costs of the necessary extras to complete the kit.
We were very excited when we found a company that believed in our vision and produced the entire product series. Due to potential trademark issues, the Peak 10 name was replaced with the “Peak Fit Challenge” name. The original 2 DVD workouts were reshot under the new name and included in the package. The “Peak Fit Challenge” product went to market in 2011.
Due to several challenging circumstances, the product was pulled from the market. This was a personally challenging time for me as I felt my “best work” was left sitting on a shelf somewhere. Consumers were asking for the product and I had no way of giving it to them.
Meanwhile, I was granted the trademark to the Peak 10 name and decided to make two follow up workouts called “Peak 10 More Cardio Strength” and “ Peak 10 More Cardio IntervalBurn”. These new workouts were NOT included in the “Peak Fit Challenge” series. Seeing the success of our health club version of Peak 10, I just couldn’t let the home workout program sit and collect dust. With the help and support of friends and family, I continued to pursue other options. The little voice inside my head said, “Never give up!”
Fast forward, I am thrilled and honored to be working with our new company, fitness leader and innovator, Nautilus. They have an incredible team of positive, fitness minded people who saw the potential of the home product and agreed to take it on. The new infomercial was launched this past weekend, (November 10th, 2012) and the full 10 DVD system is now available again at www.peakfitsystem.com
Many of you have asked if I will be making any new “Peak” workouts. My answer is, “Yes!” I have a number of workouts ready to be filmed if we have enough consumer demand for them. So for any of you looking for more, please spread your love of the Peak Fit System program to your friends and loved ones.
In the mean time, I wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and remind you to Live, life, fit!
