Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], Sept. 24 (ANI / PRNewswire): Fitbee, a company specializing in fitness and nutrition programs for women, announced today that it has successfully helped over 10,000 women worldwide manage PCOS, PCOD and hypothyroidism properly and efficiently.
PCOS, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, is mainly caused by lifestyle changes that lead to elevated levels of androgens or male hormones.
Founded in 2017 by Prathima Koppolu and her husband Avinash Rajapet, the company aims to provide women with a more structured and informed approach to health and wellness. The company offers fitness and nutrition plans that focus on improving the physical and mental health of women. Fitbee currently offers six services ranging from getting the body used to a fitness program to helping women overcome PCOS.
These programs include curated training videos, personalized diet charts, consultations with nutritionists, trainers, and gynecologists. The company has also taken a digital first approach, sharing tips and quick content on Instagram with its growing follower base of 70,000.
Commenting on PCOS Awareness Month, Prathima Koppolu, CEO and Co-Founder of Fitbee, said, “Having a month for hormonal health conditions is so important because it takes so much awareness. Treatment for PCOS is unique to every woman; that’s why we create bespoke fitness and nutrition programs that are efficient, educational, and fun. It is also tailored to the Indian palate and body functions, making the program accessible and easy to understand. “

“PCOS is a widespread health condition in India that affects young women, more than half of whom are unaware. The cause of this increasing number is unhealthy eating habits combined with long and stressful work hours and a lack of physical activity adequate sleep. ” It is necessary to make Indian women aware of these factors and to be encouraged to make the necessary lifestyle changes. Fitbee is working to build the right platform and community to help these women take a step in the right direction to lead healthier and happier lives, “says Dr. Havya Polavarapu, Consultative Gynecologist, Sunshine Hospitals, Secunderabad .
Almost one in five women worldwide has PCOS and due to limited access to information and safe spaces for proper conversations, they often suffer in silence. Fitbee Hive, an inclusive online community for women, was created by Fitbee to help women voice their concerns and feel heard, all in a safe and engaging space.
The Hive launched earlier this year and has 800 women who are actively involved, gathering information, and seeking support. The platform offers exclusive access to shared experiences and stories of women on their way to a healthy life.
