SAN DIEGO, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC, a San Diego based healthy-living media company, announced today the launch of its new healthy travel portal, www.athleticmindedtraveler.com. This first-of-its-kind site arms travelers with accurate information and credible recommendations on fitness-focused hotels, superior health clubs and gyms, healthy eating options, running routes, retailers, and more in 100 North American destinations. The web portal is an extension of the company’s best selling book, The Athletic-Minded Traveler, which achieved success across a variety of sales channels including individuals, corporations, catalogs, and specialty retailers around the world.

“The online platform is a natural growth model that allows us to tremendously expand the depth and breadth of our healthy travel content,” said Jim Kaese, co-founder and President of Athletic-Minded Traveler LLC.

Customizing the service and creating a private label intranet solution also affords our corporate customers a simple method to distribute our unique content to employees as part of their wellness/work life programs.”
