ST. LOUIS, Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — My Team Fitness is proud to announce the launch of MyTeamFitness.com, a website and program that is focused on providing everyday fitness for every body.
My Team Fitness is a collaborative effort created by three Saint Louis-based and fitness-inspired business men who had a vision about changing the lives of average people and brought it to life. Ken Cox, Brian Montgomery Jr. and Dustin Oder noticed the fitness world was lacking a consistent program that could be achieved by all fitness levels. With a little determination and creativity, the three designed a personalized and accessible program called My Team Fitness. This unique program includes daily, fun, and low-impact 10-minute videos sent directly to the customer’s inbox, as well as a detailed nutrition guide to help users throughout their fitness journey. Led by experienced fitness trainers, the program provides fitness for every level. My Team Fitness invites people of every shape, size, experience, and location to join the My Team Fitness Community.
“The overall goal of My Team Fitness, in this weird isolated world that we are living in, was to bring the community feeling to a workout, even though you are in your own environment,” Oder said.
In the midst of local gyms closing due to COVID restrictions, the team felt that they had a responsibility to motivate people of all fitness levels to continue improving their physical health.
“Exercise has literally changed my life for the better,” Cox said, “I realized the impact that fitness has on other lives as well. Helping someone else on that journey is so critical.
This collective of fitness-lovers realized that they could combine their individual impact and create a supportive, team-centered environment for those who don’t already have one. Each of their own physical results came because they were surrounded by a supportive team, much like a family.
“There are a lot of people that want to exercise but they don’t have the confidence or motivation to do it. They just need the support. We want to be that community for them,” Montgomery said.
The My Team Fitness website is set to launch on Dec. 1, 2020. As a grand opening gift, the team is offering 50% off of the My Team Fitness program for the first 50 users who join. Users should apply the coupon code “Founder” at checkout.

Peter Andre works up a sweat in tiny vest as he launches his fitness channel after 34 years in the gym
PETER Andre has launched his first ever online fitness classes after 34 years of training in the gym.
The 47-year-old stripped off to a tiny vest as he revealed his new exciting venture called Get Fit With Peter Andre.
A source exclusively told The Sun: “Peter has wanted to do something with health and fitness for such a long time and now tonight he’s launching his first fitness video!
“It’s free to subscribe so join in and start your fitness journey!”
The first video is a 10 minute HIIT workout that can easily be done at home without any equipment.
Speaking from his home gym, Peter tells fans: “It’s great to finally do this, I’ve been training since I was 13 years old, I’m 47 now.
“I’ve gone through so many different stages of training where I did all the weight training, watched everything I ate and was kind of bulky.
“Then I did the other ones where I was just cardio based and I was really shredded and then as time went on I found all the different things I liked – a combination of everything.
“What I want to do in these videos is show you all the different things you can do.
“So if you’re at home and you have no equipment I’m going to give you 10 minute little HIIT training.”
The first video is available to watch on Peter’s YouTube channel and there will be a new workout added every Monday.
Last week, Peter delighted fans by stripping naked to sing his hit Mysterious Girl in the shower.
He sizzled in a video shared with his 1.6 million Instagram followers – 25 years after he first released Mysterious Girl.
Peter crooned the track from his second studio album, Natural, and showed off the incredible abs that helped make him famous.
He captioned the TikTok video: “They dared me to do it and I was like ‘hell yeah’ 🐠🏝🌴 #mysteriousgirl @tiktok #backtothemusic”
Fans didn’t complain, as Paddy McGuinness’s wife Christine commented: “Yeeessssss 👏😂”
Another said: “Excellent, loved that song 😊”
Pete’s debut single Drive Me Crazy, released in 1992, peaked at number 72 in the Australian charts
But he became a huge hit when his tracks Mysterious Girl and Flava went global.
Peter reminded fans of his former glory last week, sharing a 90s throwback snap of himself when he was just 21-years-old.
In the snap a baby faced Pete can be seen rocking a bandana in his hair, an opened checkered shirt and a necklace hanging around his neck.

Amazon has unveiled an online pharmacy that will allow users to have prescription medication sent straight to their homes as the pandemic has driven demand for delivery options.
The pharmacy is the latest addition to the e-commerce giant’s empire and a major move into the lucrative U.S. health care industry. The company said that Prime members receive free two-day delivery on medications and promised savings of up to 80% off generic brands for Prime customers not paying with insurance.
“As more and more people look to complete everyday errands from home, pharmacy is an important and needed addition to the Amazon online store,” Doug Herrington, the senior vice president of North American Consumer at Amazon said in a statement.
Through the pharmacy, which launched Tuesday, customers can browse and compare medications online as well as have phone and digital access to Amazon pharmacists who can answer questions about the medications.
T.J. Parker, the new vice president of Amazon Pharmacy added in a statement that the pharmacy is “bringing Amazon’s customer obsession to an industry that can be inconvenient and confusing.”
“We work hard behind the scenes to handle complications seamlessly so anyone who needs a prescription can understand their options, place their order for the lowest available price, and have their medication delivered quickly,” Parker added.

Medications still require a prescription from a licensed health care provider, the company noted. It also does not deliver Schedule II controlled medications, which includes most opioids. Currently, the Amazon Pharmacy is not yet available in Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana or Minnesota.

HONG KONG, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Regent Pacific Group Limited (“Regent Pacific” or the “Company” and together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”; SEHK:0575.HK)’s Deep Longevity, Inc, a company subject to a conditional acquisition by the Group which is a pioneer in deep biomarkers of aging and longevity today announced the launch of the first Longevity Medicine course for Physicians on LabXchange Platform. It is the first of several Longevity Medicine chapters, with upcoming courses scaled for scientists and patients.
This course is aimed to fill the educational gap in translation longevity medicine. Deep Longevity, a leader in artificial intelligence for the development of biomarkers of aging and longevity, brought together scientists and physicians engaged in basic and translational research to develop the course: “Longevity Medicine for Physicians”. The course covers basics in translational aging research from terminology and demographic aspects, theories and hallmarks of aging, basic aging pathways and mechanisms behind the possibly geroprotective interventions and covers the various types of aging clocks.
The course is intended for medical professionals and students, who have limited time and seek a comprehensive, well-structured, reliable course. It contains three hours of core lectures providing an introduction to the field, lecture slides, lecture notes, quizzes, guest lectures, as well as references to additional reading materials and online resources. Introduction to Longevity Medicine is the first course in a series intended to provide advanced physicians with the latest approaches in longevity technology.
“As we are partnering with the advanced clinical institutions we see the gap between translational research and clinical practice and would like to provide the MDs with the resources they need to get into the rapidly growing field of longevity medicine, learn about the latest advances in artificial intelligence and in the pharmaceutical industry”, said Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD, the founder of the Longevity Medicine course and Chief Longevity Officer at Deep Longevity.
“While much-scattered information is available from more or less evidence-based sources, there was a lack of a structured, guided and well organized course that provides physicians with the necessary background information on this rapidly evolving discipline of healthy longevity. This is why we developed this very first course in Longevity Medicine – to close this gap and provide understandable and practicable, credible resources for clinicians”, said Evelyne Bischof, MD, co-founder of the course.
Earlier this year, Deep Longevity received investments from expert longevity investment funds related to clinical organizations and is currently subject to a conditional acquisition by Regent Pacific Group Limited (SEHK:0575.HK), a public company whose securities are listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited. It also announced a partnership with Human Longevity Inc, one of the world’s most advanced centers for preventative diagnostic medicine. Since then, it has partnered with several other advanced clinics and hospitals.

Digital Medicine Society Launches ‘Tour Of Duty’ For The Digital Measures Playbook To Advance Healthcare
BOSTON, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) today announced its next open-science collaboration of stakeholders across clinical, technology, and nonprofit sectors, government, and academia to deploy The Digital Clinical Measures Playbook (The Playbook), the essential industry guide for remote patient monitoring in clinical research, clinical care and public health.
The goal of this ‘Tour of Duty’ is to drive adoption of The Playbook as the shared foundation for advancing digital clinical measurement and transforming clinical trials, patient care and public health through remote monitoring.
“In recent years we’ve seen an explosion of promising digital health technologies from simple consumer health apps to sophisticated, evidence-based digital therapeutics to treat disease,” said DiMe Executive Director Jennifer Goldsack. “The Playbook standardizes and guides the safe and effective use of digital clinical measures and helps to ensure an analytical and clinical evidence base for these technologies for the benefit of patients worldwide.”
The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought new urgency to the drive toward devising a common framework for the development and deployment of high quality, patient centric, digital clinical measures. Multiple digital technologies for symptom tracking and contact tracing are currently in use and/or development, and clinical researchers are now designing new decentralized clinical trial strategies using telemedicine and remote patient monitoring to minimize pandemic-related disruption of the clinical research enterprise. Adoption of a comprehensive “how-to” roadmap to synthesize best practices in the digital health field is essential for guiding these efforts and safeguarding public health.
The Playbook, launched in September, 2020, was the culmination of a six-month Tour of Duty driven by multidisciplinary participants from DiMe, Elektra Labs; Genentech, a member of the Roche Group; Koneksa Health; MyoKardia; Sage Bionetworks; Scripps Research; and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
Convened by DiMe for the second Tour, founding partners are joined by ActiGraph; Activinsights; American Pharmacists Association; BlackThorne Rx; Center for Digital Health at Brown University; Covance; Digital.Health; Duke University; Eli Lilly and Company; the European Medicines Agency; Evidation Health; Merck and Co., Inc.; Open mHealth; Pfizer; physIQ; Savvy Coop; Takeda; VivoSense; and Winterlight Labs.
‘Tours of Duty’ (TOD) are the cornerstone of DiMe’s strategy for developing clinical quality evidence on a rapid tech timeline. They are collaborative, open-science sprint efforts of four to six months, each addressing a pressing challenge needed to advance the safe, effective, ethical, and equitable use of digital technologies to improve public health.
This next Tour is dedicated to establishing The Playbook as the shared foundation for digital clinical measurement and will drive several workstreams over the coming months to refine content and crystallize consensus, develop illustrative use cases, articulate optimal strategy and ROI for the use of remote monitoring, and advance educational initiatives. Conveners anticipate releasing these additional resources through April 2021.
What Tour of Duty participants are saying:
“We are on the brink of digital clinical measures going from being seen as “nice to have” to becoming critically important and
San Francisco: Amazon on Tuesday introduced new pharmacy offerings to help customers in the US conveniently purchase their prescription medications, giving drug retailers such as Walmart and Walgreens new competition.
The e-commerce giant said that Amazon Pharmacy, a new store on Amazon, allows customers to complete an entire pharmacy transaction on their desktop or mobile device through the Amazon App.
Using a secure pharmacy profile, customers can add their insurance information, manage prescriptions, and choose payment options before checking out.
Prime members receive “free two-day delivery” on orders from Amazon Pharmacy included with their membership.
Amazon said that Prime members can access savings on medications at Amazon Pharmacy when paying without insurance, as well as at over 50,000 other participating pharmacies nationwide.
“We designed Amazon Pharmacy to put customers first — bringing Amazon’s customer obsession to an industry that can be inconvenient and confusing,” TJ Parker, Vice President, Amazon Pharmacy, said in a statement.
“We work hard behind the scenes to handle complications seamlessly so anyone who needs a prescription can understand their options, place their order for the lowest available price, and have their medication delivered quickly.”
The launch of Amazon Pharmacy is not unexpected as it has taken a number of steps to enter the healthcare market. It had bought pharmaceutical delivery startup PillPack for just under $1 billion in 2018.
The company said that PillPack is part of Amazon Pharmacy and remains a “distinct service” for customers managing multiple daily medications for chronic conditions.
Customers who take multiple daily medications and prefer pre-sorted dose packaging should continue to choose PillPack, Amazon said.
Amazon earlier this year announced the start of a trial of its medicine delivery service, Amazon Pharmacy, in India.
