'Battle of the Bulge' Fitness DVD offers work-outs for plus-size people to
help them get in shape and lose weight!
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Bone Crusher, who holds the record of "Biggest Individual Weight Loss" on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club, uses his personal experience to inspire personal growth and change by releasing his own fitness DVD, "Battle of the Bulge." The DVD, which is endorsed by Dr. Ian Smith from Celebrity Fit Club, will be released on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 via Battle of the Bulge, LLC and is distributed by Lightyear Entertainment and Warner Home Video and retails at $14.97.
"Battle of the Bulge" offers four different workout routines for overweight persons who are trying to get in shape and lose some weight. No equipment is needed, just personal motivation! Bone Crusher provides information and guidance on how to lose weight in a fun and lively instructional format. He offers 20-Minute, 40-Minute, Modified Couch Workout, or Modified Bed Workout routines for those who are at the beginner to moderate levels.
The workouts, if performed a minimum of 3-4 times a week, are guaranteed to improve a person's health and mobility; build muscle strength; protect joints and tendons; increase cardio-endurance; burn fat; and help gain confidence and self-esteem. Bone Crusher offers encouraging instruction throughout all four routines which can be done from a standing or sitting position for persons with limited mobility. "Battle of the Bulge" is a rarity in the fitness market as it targets the "plus size" demographic.
Bone Crusher comments on why he decided to release a fitness DVD, "I decided to put together a fitness DVD because there aren't really any workout DVDs available to people who are significantly overweight, and those are the people who really need a routine that is effective and realistic. And given the increase in obesity rates in this country, I thought it was important to provide a tool to help others in my position lose weight and increase health and wellness."
Dr. Ian Smith, the medical and diet expert on VH1's highly rated "Celebrity Fit Club" and State Farm's 50 Million Pound Challenge, provides commentary in the Special Features section and endorses the video as the perfect DVD for those in the plus-size market as it takes into account the advantages and challenges of exercising for those who are overweight. Dr. Smith recommends "Battle of the Bulge" as a tool that "will not only help you lose weight, but it will change your life."
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, data from two NHANES surveys show that among adults aged 20-74, the prevalence of obesity increased from 15.0% in the 1976-1980 survey to 32.9% in the 2003-2004 survey. Being overweight or obese increases the risks of many diseases and health conditions including hypertension, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, dyslipidemia (high cholesterol), gall bladder disease, some forms of cancer, and others. "Battle of the Bulge" is a tool that will help those who fall in the 32.9% category to lose weight and help eliminate or reduce the health risks associated with being overweight or obese.
"Battle of the Bulge" is currently available for purchase online and at
major retails outlets.
