05/11/2011

Shannon Miller Lifestyle enters partnership with Mancino Manufacturing Company to provide a line of personal fitness products for busy adults.

Online PR News – 11-May-2011 – – Shannon Miller Lifestyle (SML) today announced that it has entered into partnership with Mancino Manufacturing Company, Inc. (MMC) to produce personal fitness matting and training products designed for the fitness needs of busy adults. The products can be purchased at http://shannonmillerlifestyle.com.

"I am excited to partner with Mancino to create the Shannon Miller Lifestyle Personal Fitness Mat. For many people, a yoga mat or carpet simply does not have enough padding to create a comfortable way to stay fit. The additional padding of the SML Personal Fitness Mat allows you to get more out of your workout whether it is yoga, Pilates, plyometrics or stretching,” said Miller.

The first product in the line is a personal fitness mat measuring 30” x 72” x 1 3/8” thick. It has two handles and easily fits under the bed, in the closet, or in the trunk of a car. Much thicker than a standard yoga mat, it is a design based on the larger folding mats gymnasts have used to train on for years. The mat is light and easily transportable.

“We are just thrilled as a company to have the opportunity to work with Shannon and SML,” said Rebecca Mancino, Executive Vice President of MMC. “The entire process has gone incredibly smooth and that is a testament to the team at SML. We have collaborated on a great product to launch the line, and I know her customers will be very happy with it.”

“Whether you're at home or at the gym you will benefit from the shock absorbing padding, which can prevent injury and increase your level of workout. My company is all about making a healthy lifestyle easy and convenient and this product helps you get there," said Miller.
