"Health and well-being are a core component of our mission at AccuWeather, which is why partnering with FlexIt makes so much sense," said AccuWeather Senior Vice President of Business Development, Paul Lentz. "Users now have Superior Accuracy built into their experience, enabling them to plan their workouts with greater confidence."
