Gayle Anderson was live in Lawndale to begin her contribution to the KTLA MORNING NEWS “LOSE FIVE WITH FIVE’ month long health and fitness initiative.
Gayle was at CJ’s Functional Fitness with members of the Fitness Syndicate to follow up on their war on obesity in Los Angeles. Last November, Gayle visited Functional Fitness to report on the Fitness Syndicate vs. Obesity, “Push Through the Obstacle,” a 12-week program designed to get 12 lucky participants into their best shape.
Established by CJ, CEO of CJ’s Functional Fitness March 6, 2010, the Fitness Syndicate is a group of Los Angeles trainers and coaches who have joined forces to combat obesity. As part of this program, each Fitness Syndicate member was given one week with the contestants to train them for two to three days on various methods of fitness training. This weekly variation of both trainers and training techniques helped keep participants motivated throughout the process. In addition to physical fitness, this program aimed to show the public the real process behind weight loss, by emphasizing the dedication, hard work, and consistency needed to sustain good health rather than quick fixes.
Contestants were selected by Radio Free 102.3 KJLH air personality, Adai Lamar and CJ, CEO of CJ’s Functional Fitness, and announced during the Morning Drive Show on Friday, October 26, 2012. Also, four alternates were selected and personally notified. The winners and alternates had until January 5, 2013 (Orientation Day) to obtain a medical clearance from their care provider in order to participate in the program. If a winner failed to obtain a medical release, they then forfeited their spot to an alternate. The fitness sessions began January 12, 2013 and ended Saturday, April 6, 2013.
During a mandatory Orientation Day, the participants took before pictures and had weigh-ins, body fat testing, and their measurements taken. This data was tracked weekly throughout the 12-week process. All the winners will be showcased at the 13th Annual KJLH’s Women’s Health Forum this Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
