Developed by Metova, Power 20 Abs & Core Fitness Launches on Android, iOS
FRANKLIN, Tenn. August 14, 2013 – Power 20 followed up its highly rated workout app this month with an Abs & Core Fitness version of the app for Android and iOS. The company plans to develop a suite of at least ten 20-minute workout apps, including a butt and thigh workout, workout for new moms, workout for expecting moms and exercises specifically for people with diabetes.
The first two apps—Power 20 Full Body Workout and Power 20 Abs & Core Fitness—were developed by custom mobile app developer Metova. Power 20 Full Body Workout was released in April 2013. No equipment is necessary for Power 20’s high intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, which use plyometric exercises.
“Power 20 Abs & Core Fitness focuses on core strength, which is great for improving posture and overall strength,” said Arshad Chowdhury, founder of Power 20. “Our growing suite of Power 20 apps are part of a broader movement—as people move away from DVD-based exercise to mobile device programs. In the hot summer weather, these workouts are safer than exercising outside, and Power 20 allows people to workout anytime, anywhere.”
Power 20 Abs & Core Fitness is currently available in the Google Play store for all Android devices. It has also been submitted to the Apple store for iOS devices.
The Power 20 20-minute workout apps work in coordination with One Month Madness, a holistic diet and exercise program that takes into account meditation, sleep and social support.
“We designed these apps to be simple to use, with easy-to-follow visuals and timers to guide the user through an effective 20-minute workout,” said John Owens, developer at Metova. “We’re looking forward to continuing to add to the Power 20 suite of apps for Android and iOS with more niche offerings.”
Chowdhury, a technology entrepreneur with a passion for fitness, created Power 20 to teach his diabetic relatives how to control their blood-sugar levels through exercise. Doctors are starting to suggest applications to patients.
“We always tell patients to eat right and exercise, but Power 20 gives us a tool to share with our patients on an easy-to-implement exercise regiment,” says Dr. Michael Redlener, director of Prehospital Care at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City. “The more specific physicians can be with their patients about how to achieve cardiovascular health, the more likely patients with diabetes and risk of heart disease will be able to reach these goals. Power 20 is an excellent and adaptable option for patients.”
New users can register and download the Power 20 app for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.power20.absncore).
Power 20 creates guided exercise applications for smartphones and tablets. The company’s first product, Power 20 Full Body Workout, is now available for Android devices and iPhone. The company is based in New York City and was founded by serial entrepreneur Arshad Chowdhury. For more information, visit http://power20app.com.
