The newest face of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” gets activated!

We’re excited to announce that our long time friend, peer and straight up soul sister, Jen Widerstrom will be in the house at the activeight experience in October.  She will literally be flying in from  the Season 16 “Glory Days” set to be with us.

Our host David Jack first met Jen on the set of what was at the time, a ground-breaking fitness DVD series in which they presented as co-leads.  A spirit of teamwork and life long friendship was born and it continues to grow.

Jen has an amazing story.  She has experienced nearly every level of success (and coincidentally, challenge, “funny” how that happens) that you would hope to achieve as a fitness professional, and human being, including multiple roles as a national television star.  But her greatest asset, her ace in the hole, the one  that she uses to activate others, and in turn herself, dawned on David when she first called to tell him that she was named to the Biggest Loser cast.  We will share that story and much more with you in Phoenix.

This is a special woman, and you will be grateful you met her.  Jen, we are honored to have you, and know the sacrifice you’re making to come out during the TV season.  Thank you for acting inspired for an intention greater than self!

With many thanks and BIG love!

Strength to Serve and Founder Jeremy Shore ready to activeight

I first met Jeremy Shore in Los Angeles in 2008 on the set of a full production DVD project we did together for Men’s Health Magazine.  From the moment we met, I knew there was something different about him.

Since then, we have become as close as brothers, and he has gone on to create global impact in the fitness world through the platforms of media, education and coaching (as you’ll see below).  More than that, Jeremy has played a pivotal role in my life behind the scenes as a friend, mentor, and peer.  He has become one of my best friends, and is one of my personal activeight brothers.

Jeremy has also founded a movement we’ve partnered with called Strength to Serve (STS).  The truth that STS promotes is that our strength isn’t for us, it’s for others.  It’s meant to transfer out of the gym into the everyday lives we lead and to those who need it from us.  It’s inspiring people, and giving them tools to use their fitness to bring “strength” (the capacity for effective action as he says) to homes, communities and globally by using their fitness in a simple, yet profound way.  And the irony is, the more strength that’s given away, the more we seem to get in return.

Jeremy is a first class fitness professional and human being (job #1) and the STS movement is changing the way communities use, benefit from, and view fitness.  I’ve had the pleasure of working side by side with him in several cities and for various causes, and it has truly activated my life.

Jeremy will help deliver a live fitness media specialist hands on session, as well as a live strength to serve experience.  You’ll be grateful for both.  And maybe, just maybe, you might also get your medicine ball literacy seriously upgraded :)

We (and I personally) are grateful for your presence and your willingness to serve brother!  See you in October!
