Boston Biotech Company Partners with Local Luxury Fitness Club to Improve Gut Health and Wellness

October 1, 2018

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--Ixcela, The Internal Fitness TM Company focusing on gut health and wellness, today announced a collaboration with Lynx Fitness Club that offers members access to Ixcela test kits to measure and improve internal health through personalized fitness plans, dietary supplements, and nutritional plans. The Club’s trainers and onsite nutritionist will work directly with members to help improve overall health outcomes.

The Ixcela approach is focused on restoring internal fitness by self-administering a sophisticated, yet simple, pin-prick blood test which identifies key metabolites associated with the gut microbiome that are out of balance. A balanced gut microbiome coupled with a healthy diet and activity can improve immune function, energetic efficiency, cognitive acuity, and emotional balance – aligning with Lynx Fitness Club’s mission of re-defining and creating the best possible fitness community in Boston.

“The best way we can deliver our clients results is by quantifying them,” said Bill Najam, Co-Founder and Chief Executive, Lynx Fitness Club. “It’s hard to quantify exercise and nutritional results unless you’re working with a measurable test. Ixcela makes it easy for us to work with members on the nutrition and fitness side and understand what their baseline is when they start and understand how they progress as they work with our in-house trainers and nutritionist to improve their health holistically.”

The premier fitness club prides itself on creating a community of individuals with shared health and wellness interests. By generating tangible results, members are encouraged to improve overall wellbeing and reach attainable fitness goals.

“We’re delighted to bring Lynx Fitness Club members the benefits of Ixcela,” said Dr. Erika Ebbel Angle, Co-Founder and CEO, Ixcela. “The link between gut health and physical and mental health is irrefutable and by working with members, we’re able to bring more awareness to preventative health issues and help Boston achieve balanced health.”

Lynx Masters of Nutrition is accessible to members for onsite nutrition education and training. Ixcela test kits will be available in single and full-length programs and will be recommended by Club nutritionists and trainers on a case-by-case basis. To learn more, visit www.Ixcela.com.
