Riversharks Introduce Nutrisystem Weight Loss Challenge

PRESS RELEASE – The Camden Riversharks announced the launch of their season-long promotional campaign with Nutrisystem, one of the nation’s leading weight loss programs. Joel Seiden, Assistant General Manager of the Camden Riversharks, will be on Nutrisystem for the entire length of the 2010 season with the goal of losing approximately 40 lbs. The program, titled “Take Control with Joel” is an interactive campaign to encourage healthy weight loss and to show the public that even amidst a busy work schedule it’s possible to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle.

Over the course of the season, Seiden will maintain a running log of his diet and exercise plan in addition to his weekly weigh-ins. The Riversharks have already begun to document Joel’s diet and will be featuring updates on their social networking outlets to share his progress with interested fans through pictures and video logs on the Riversharks’ You Tube, http://www.youtube.com/user/CamdenRiverSharks, and Facebook sites. To encourage fan participation in the season-long program, Nutrisystem is offering a special discount to those friends and fans of the Camden Riversharks who join Nutrisystem during the “Take Control with Joel” challenge that may be accessed by visiting http://www.nutrisystem.com/riversharks.

“During the off season I started to realize that my weight had really creeped up. With the rigors that come along with managing the Riversharks, I knew that I needed a weight loss solution that was flexible, and easy to follow,” said Joel Seiden, Assistant Manager of the Camden Riversharks. “Now that I’ve started Nutrisystem, I’ve found the food is delicious; I don’t feel deprived at all, and it’s working for me. I encourage all the Rivershark fans to join Nutrisystem along with me and to make this season a healthier one.”
