EDISON, N.J., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitness and nutrition specialist, best-selling author and acclaimed celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, and Majesco Entertainment Company (Nasdaq: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced a strategic partnership to develop and produce interactive electronic games based on Pasternak's 5-Factor Fitness program. Designed to generate results in just five weeks, the successful 5-Factor Fitness program is based on five-ingredient meals, five times a day, coupled with Harley's signature fitness program of five-minute sets. Under the terms of the partnership, Majesco receives the exclusive worldwide rights to publish games based on Harley's program.
"Backed by degrees in both nutrition and fitness, Harley is the pre-eminent Hollywood trainer, responsible for some of the best celebrity bodies on stage and screen, including Katy Perry, Megan Fox, Lady Gaga and Rob Pattinson," said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. "Harley's appearances on Oprah Winfrey and Rachael Ray have helped drive the growth of his 5-Factor brand and convert millions to his distinctive nutrition and fitness program. His program is the type of holistic approach that translates perfectly into motion-based video games that let players take control of their own health in a fully interactive way."
"I'm thrilled to be partnering with Majesco to create a ground-breaking fitness game based on the same 5-Factor program I use to train all my clients," said Pasternak. "I designed the program to get celebrities in top shape as quickly and efficiently as possible. This game will give everyone access to the simple yet effective training techniques I've used to achieve phenomenal results for some of the best bodies in Hollywood."
