Trainnr, the first dedicated online health and fitness marketplace that connects personal trainers with clients, is announcing today that NFL Hall of Famer Cris Carter is joining its community of elite content creators to bring NFL-quality fitness training to the Trainnr community.
NFL Hall of Fame Wide Receiver Cris Carter and Trainnr will collaborate to create high-end sports and wide receiver training content.
Available on iOS, Android and Web, the Trainnr platform connects personal trainers with clients so they can easily create, customize and distribute training content. Trainnr also offers tailored marketing and business development support and infrastructure, including a library of stock training videos, marketing materials, and social campaigns that trainers can download, edit, and make their own to further enhance and improve their personal training business. Additionally, Trainnr has made it easy for individuals seeking improved fitness or a better, more professional training experience to find a personal trainer or program that works for their interests, goals, and budget.
“Cris Carter is one of the most prolific and successful NFL players to play the game, and his knowledge and experience in elite levels of training and physical performance are a perfect fit for the Trainnr Team ” said Jeffry Smith, Founder of Trainnr. “Trainnr is excited to work with Cris to make professional sports training accessible on every television, smart phone, and computer on the planet. It’s clear that Cris values what we value – democratizing world class training techniques so they are available to independent personal trainers and their customers everywhere.”
Cris Carter has joined the Trainnr team as of September 2021 and will serve as a brand ambassador, consultant, and content creator.
One of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history, Carter scored 130 touchdowns and racked up 1,101 receptions for 13,899 yards (12.6 avg.) in 16 seasons, finishing his career as the NFL’s second all-time leading receiver and with the second-most touchdowns in league history. Carter is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1990s.
“Growing up, my teammates and I only had access to the coaches we met in our youth and high school football teams. I was fortunate my high school Coach, Bill Conley, was a phenomenal teacher and in college at Ohio State, being coached by Legendary coaches Urban Meyer and Jim Tressel gave me a huge advantage over my opponents. I know that there are thousands of talented athletes out there who didn’t have that same opportunity. Elite training should not be available only to exclusive groups of people. Everyone should have access to the best tools and techniques so they can be fit and healthy! I’m excited to work with Trainnr to help every young athlete achieve their dreams, and work with adults to help teach them how to do the same for the young athletes in their charge.”
