NEW YORK, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Dr. Oz Show," the all-new daily syndicated show hosted by cardiac surgeon and health expert Dr. Mehmet Oz, is joining forces with the National Football League (NFL) as 20 moms of NFL players face off to get fit in "Dr. Oz's Ultimate Health Challenge." On Friday, September 25, 2009, two teams comprised of ten AFC and ten NFC moms, including the mothers of NFL players Donovan McNabb, Kurt Warner, Nick Mangold and more, will take on each other to tackle their health issues as part of a national viewer challenge. The teams will be coached by former Tennessee Titans running back and Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George and his wife Taj, of "Survivor" fame, recently announced as regular contributors to "The Dr. Oz Show."

In six episodes airing this season, the moms will battle head-to-head to reduce major risk factors contributing to heart disease including their blood pressure, cholesterol, waist size and weight. "Dr. Oz's Ultimate Health Challenge" kicks off in the first month of the NFL season and will culminate on February 5, 2010, the Friday before Super Bowl XLIV. Viewers can join the challenge starting with the first episode, airing Friday, September 25, and by following along on doctoroz.com.

"I'm excited to team up with the NFL, Eddie and Taj, as we are all committed to improving the health and wellness of America," said Dr. Oz. "Collectively, we will coach and motivate moms and families everywhere while they get fit and celebrate their victories side-by-side with mothers from the NFL on the show and online."

"Taj and I are thrilled to be participating on 'The Dr. Oz Show.' We believe in Dr. Oz's mission to help people live healthier, better lives," said Eddie George. "We hope through our involvement with the NFL Mother's program, we can inspire others to challenge themselves and attain life-altering goals."
