Michael Torchia, Fitness Advisor to the stars and his fitness team will travel across the country to the top 10 cities with the highest level of obesity in a Operation Fitness Tour Bus helping people in need to create healthier lifestyles.  Project Shape Up America is sponsored by Pav Dharwarkar and his mission is to help people who have typical excuses of why they can’t make time to workout and eat right and help them make the necessary changes in their lives to permanently maintain a healthier way of living.  In addition, the Project Shape Up America team along the way will visit foster homes and inner city community centers. A habit is something we do without thinking about it.  That’s why so many Americans today are overweight and out of shape.  Studies have shown us that 90% of our normal behavior is based on our habits.  That means how we treat people, how we spend our money, what we watch on TV, what we listen to and what we eat.  90% of the time we are on autopilot. It takes about 21 days to develop a good or bad habit.  So if you need to create a healthy lifestyle, you need to identify your bad habits and then start to make these changes.  It’s easy not to go to the gym and eat anything you want, but you can become a slave to these habits.  It will be uncomfortable and a struggle at times, but you will become a healthier and happier person.  Torchia and his fitness team will teach the most stubborn and unmotivated Americans how to break their bad habits.

Michael Torchia, along with team health experts will show people of all ages that feeling good mentally, emotionally and physically doesn’t require a rigorous training program. In addition, to using the Operation Fitness Tour Bus, the team will be utilizing household items, junk from garages and office furniture to show that people can create simple ways of working out along with participating in stimulating activities in the wilderness or a park.  There will be creative cooking demonstrations, where we will teach people how to reengineer their favorite recipes to be not only healthier, but great tasting too.  In addition, the show will feature families in need of help and create a more healthy, nurturing and thriving environment for them. They will learn how to become more confident, physically fit and establish life long healthy eating habits. You will find yourself personally involved in this highly motivating reality television show.  Our nation truly needs to be inspired to make the necessary transitions to create a healthier and happier lifestyle. Michael Torchia is one of the foremost fitness experts in the country and is dedicated to fighting the epidemic of obesity.

Project Shape Up America will focus on educating people about the physical impact on the body whether it’s because of being a couch potato, baby boomer trying to regain their vigor or to prevent the weekend warrior from getting injured.  Often the mental aspect of exercise and healthy living is ignored and it takes its toll on one’s self-esteem, so the antidote to depression, lack of motivation and energy goes undiscovered.  There should be no stress over what and how to eat.  Starting on a fitness program doesn’t mean you have to spend 2 hours a day in the gym and weigh every morsel you eat.  What people need is to understand the effects and the benefits of smart decision making when it comes to exercise, nutrition and thinking healthy.  Project Shape Up America will provide the crucial information in a fun, entertaining, educational and inspirational way.
