Los Angeles, CA (BlackNews.com) -- On January 5, 2013, CJ's Functional Fitness and the Fitness Syndicate, once again, waged war on obesity in Los Angeles with the start of the Fitness Syndicate vs. Obesity program. This 12-week program is designed to combat the epidemic of obesity in urban communities.
Some of the best fitness professionals in the L.A. area will have 12-weeks to get 14 lucky participants and 6 alternates from the L.A. community in their best shape at free of charge. The participants were selected from their letters, expressing their desire to better their health. Each Fitness Syndicate trainer will have one week with the contestants as a group.
The unique part of this program is that the contestants will experience various methods of fitness training and trainers weekly to keep them motivated throughout the process. Participants can also expect to work out in various environments and learn different styles of training from functional training, Zumba, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and athletic training.
The Fitness Syndicate trainers want the public to understand the real process behind weight loss. Cleon Joseph (CJ), CEO of CJ's Functional Fitness and creator of The Fitness Syndicate vs. Obesity explains, "There are no quick fixes when it comes to weight loss. Dedication, hard work and consistency are the only way to achieve optimal health. We will provide safe and realistic results in real time."
Ultimately, The Fitness Syndicateis promoting a pure message to the Los Angeles community about life fitness and wellness. CJ adds, "I brought the best of the best to volunteer their time to motivate 14 people get fit. The intent for these chosen participants is to take their experience and encourage people in their community to follow their path to a healthier lifestyle. I call this a force a force multiplier for community wellness."
The program began on January 5th and ends on April 5, 2013 and the program is already in it's first week. The participants will celebrate their weight loss at Radio Free 102.3 KJLH's Women's Health Forum on April 27, 2013 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
CJ concludes, "I want this to grow nationwide in years to come. We could have trainers unite from every major city in America to run the same program. Each city could claim bragging rights to the most pounds lost. I believe this is a tangible and effective way to battle obesity."
The Fitness Syndicate Vs. Obesity, "Push Through the Obstacle." was established on March 6, 2010, when a group of Los Angeles trainers and coaches decided to join forces to combat obesity in Los Angeles. In 2010, fourteen well deserving people participated in the program and lost an average of 25 pounds over a 12-week period. The winner lost 30 lbs. This year, with the help of Radio Free 102.3 KJLH it will be even better.
