About Us

What Is PEERtrainer?

PEERtrainer is a website and company dedicated to helping people improve their lives. It was launched in 2005 by Habib and Jackie Wicks.

At its core PEERtrainer is a conversation. Over a million people a month visit the site to learn how to improve their eating, their movement and their health. Some come to read our articles and some come to talk to other people and get support from them.

PEERtrainer also offers a variety of coaching programs for people who want to be led in their pursuit of fitness and health. We seek out the best ideas and information out there and present them to people. We pay close attention to doctors, researchers and businesspeople who are discovering new ways of helping people take control of their health.

To Potential Partners: PEERtrainer Has A Very Open Model

Unlike most other companies who seek to help you lose weight, PEERtrainer is not wedded to a single idea or set of approaches. We embrace any good idea. As a result we are always very open to partnerships and idea exchanges. If you have a product, a book or an idea that you believe to be best in class, we want to hear from you. We do joint ventures and cross promotions if we see that the promotion will help people.

We are big believers in the idea that “there is no such thing as my customer.” If you look at the market and the statistics about weight and health in the US and globally, you see hundreds of millions of people who need help. There is no one company that will serve them all. Zero sum approaches will not help the problem. By working together, those of us who seek to transform people on a more permanent basis will have a greater impact. And it is smart business as well.

Fantastic Press and Endorsements

We love press and we’ve been featured in PEOPLE magazine, Good Morning America, the New York Times, and even ranked as one of the top three of best in support for weight loss in the US News and World Report. We have lots of potential success stories ranging from new moms losing the pregnancy weight to women losing 50 pounds and to those who have lost north of 80 pounds. Jackie Wicks is regularly featured on national radio shows and publications as a healthy lifestyle expert. Please contact us at 917.512.3801 anytime or at press@PEERtrainer.com
