MIDDLEBURY - Middlebury-based physical trainer Nick Lynch, CFT, SSC, is betting that a lot more Vermonters are going to get in better physical shape in the coming new year. In fact, Lynch-who turns age 25 this week-is sure those Vermonters are going to need personal training assistance and a tangible plan to achieve their personal bests.
To support his physical training hunch, Lynch recently created a unique, Internet-based personal training "center" called Superb Health. The enterprise also includes family members who are also skilled health professionals.
"This kind of thing has never been done on the Internet before," Lynch said. "We make it painless to see tangible progress in a physical fitness program. All you need is a computer and Internet connection."
Lynch's Imsuperb.com website is a one-of-kind fitness, nutrition and chiropractic website that puts him a commanding position in the field of "hybrid" fitness training.
On the website, you'll find a variety of exercise routines, healthy food and cooking suggestions from the Superb Health nutritionist, and even lifestyle, vitamin, and body insight from the website's chiropractor, brother Jim Lynch of Montpelier.
"We all have different beliefs on how to gain and maintain health and happiness. Unfortunately, many of us have come to believe that achieving health and happiness through proper exercise and diet is not convenient," Lynch said. "That's why I created Superb Health-I want to make achieving health and happiness, through proper exercise and nutrition, a lot easier."
Lynch said his program combines "dynamic exercise routines, proper nutrition, and chiropractic advice".
"Imsuperb.com allows you to achieve optimal mental and physical well-being," he said. Lynch's interactive website includes easy-to-view exercise videos; you can also chat with Imsuperb.com's Vermont-based health professionals.
This writer signed up for Lynch's one-day free trail. There was enough good guidance to inspire and entice one to join the full membership option.
"Our mission is for this website to grow and progress," Lynch said. "So come on in-it's really a new way to health and it's just a click away."
According to Lynch, website members will be able to track their progress with the a notebook feature.
You can also contact the Superb Health professionals in the chat room when you feel lost, have questions, need a pep talk, or feel like talking with other members of the site.
"Everyday of the week there will be a health professional live in our chatroom to talk with you and offer insights. This web site is a safe place for developing a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life. All of the people working on this web site are happy, healthy, and passionate individuals who enjoy working with people," Lynch said.
Lynch has been slowly building his customer base and visibility in Vermont.
In September, Superb Health co-sponsored a 5K race in Vermont to benefit Special Olympics. Other sponsors included Lynch Family Chiropractic and Black Diamond sportswear. Healthy food at the run was provided by Turkey Hill Farm in Randolph, Red Hen Bakery in Middlesex, and Champlain Valley Apiaries in Middlebury. Lynch hopes more local businesses will get involved in next year's 5K. The race will also help raise awareness of Superb Health's mission to get Vermonters in shape.
