NOW more than ever is the best time to make fitness a way of life. As health officials around the world tell us, being healthy is our best defense to weather the ongoing global health crisis. Thus, the timely launch of Fit for Life on TV5.
Fit for Life launched its pilot episode last August 16, 2020 as part of the opening salvo of TV5’s beefed up programming since it has entered into a partnership with Cignal TV, the country’s top pay TV provider. It highlights TV5 and Cignal TV’s commitment to giving its audience not only entertaining but also meaningful shows.
The fitness lifestyle program is hosted by actress Jessy Mendiola, whose own journey to a healthier lifestyle has turned her into a fitness enthusiast. Jessy will lead viewers to an hour packed with full-body exercises, easy-to-follow recipes, inspiring talks, and expert tips.
In the segment “Workout with Jessy,” the host will be joined by a special guest each episode in the demo of exercise routines. They will also encourage improvising gym props by using whatever useful objects viewers can find in their homes.
After every workout session, Jessy will sit down with another celebrity guest who will share his or her fitness journey. Andi Eigenmann was her first celebrity guest when the first episode premiered last August 16. She also had Chef Michelle Adrillana whipping up super healthy meals that also satisfy the taste buds and the grocery budget.
Fit for Life will also give a chance for viewers to air their concerns via the “Ask Jessy” segment, in which Jessy goes on a video call to answer questions and give advice with the help of a fitness or health expert. The viewers are also encouraged to share their weight-loss success stories and similar milestones in the segment “Achievement Unlocked”.
Fit for Life hopes to be a Sunday morning at 7:00 AM on TV5. It has a primetime replay on Colours every Monday at 7:00 PM, and is available on Cignal TV at CH 202 HD & 60 SD.
