The Fitness Syndicate and the American Heart Association wants the public to understand the real process behind weight loss.

We will provide safe and realistic results in real time.”

Ultimately, The Fitness Syndicate/AHA “Power Fitness Challenge” is promoting a pure message to the Los Angeles community about life fitness and wellness. CJ adds, “Obesity and hypertension are obstacles that we must overcome as a community. People are dying earlier than necessary due to sedentary lifestyles, stress, and poor food choices. I’ve found the best of the best celebrity trainers who want nothing more than to get our community in shape and we will do just that!”
