Get Fit Here - THE ONLINE ‘YELLOW PAGES’ FOR 50+ SPORTS OR ACTIVITIES

Find a Program or Facility In Your Local Community

SILVER SPRING, MD – August 26, 2014 – What if a person wants to get active or play a sport…but doesn’t know what to do or where to go? It used to be fairly easy years ago with only 10 or 15 sports or fitness activities to choose from and they could just go to the yellow pages. But today, it is not so easy…until now.

PHIT America has created the ‘matchmaker’ for sports, exercise and fitness enthusiasts, GET FIT HERE, an online tool that will link an interested individual with the athletic pursuit of his or her choice for over 50 sports or activities. For the lack of a better term, GET FIT HERE is PHIT America’s online ‘Yellow Pages’ of local sports, exercise and fitness activities.

GetFitHere.org logo“By going to GetFitHere.org, you can get access to a list of more than 50 athletic pursuits that range from badminton to martial arts to rugby to yoga,” says Jim Baugh, Founder of PHIT America.  “Many people in communities across America are frustrated about the lack of knowledge of local sports clubs, camps, and clinics so that they can get involved and start being active.  Our GET FIT HERE database cuts to the chase and provides any exercise enthusiast with the information he or she needs to begin playing a sport of their choice in their community.”

The GET FIT HERE database is broken down by parameters such as facilities, instruction, youth participation and other categories depending on the activity.

“PHIT America’s goal is to increase the number of active and fit Americans. GetFitHere.org makes it much easier to find the sport, program or facility in their local community where they can start,” continues Baugh.  “And, we cover 50 activities …everything from walking, running to baseball, basketball to Pilates or yoga to golf or tennis. This database is the largest resource of ways to get active, fit and healthy ever assembled.”

In addition, through a service provided by Active.com, (which is also available on the GET FIT HERE tab), you can conduct your own unique ‘sports search’ by inserting your zip code, a distance ranging from 25 to 200 miles, a range of dates (from this date to another date, for instance), selecting one of 11 sports (baseball, football, basketball, cycling, mountain biking, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, triathlon, or walking), and then choosing a specific program or event (such as a tournament, league, camp, class, event, or membership), you can find out what’s happening in any zip code in the country in one of those eleven sport categories.

“If an athletic event, tournament or instructional camp is listed or publicized on the Internet, our search engine will find it for you,” says Baugh. “GetFitHere.org is a resource for every fitness or sport participant to use”.
