Starting in late August, Hip-Hop Legend Grandmaster Mele Mel and BronxNet will help you master your fitness challenge with a new program, "Grandmaster Fitness." The program is part of the Bronx Strong Fitness campaign launched by BronxNet in 2011. Viewers will learn how to keep their bodies fit through workouts, nutritious eating choices, and euphoria-inducing, fun-filled activities. Grandmaster Mele Mel will take you on fitness adventures around the Bronx ad beyond, to meet fitness experts, celebrities and others who will inspire you to get fit.
Grandmaster fitness will begin airing on BronxNet Channels 67 on Cablevision and Channel 33 on Verizon FiOS in late August.
In the meantime, here are 10 tips from Mele Mel to you, for staying fit in the summer heat…
BronxNet Executive Director Michael Max Knobbe who is also a fitness advocate recommends: "You can also go without the headphones and evoke your own music, from your memory and imagination. This will help you channel your own rhythm and build your hip-hop-ability, while allowing you to stay aware of your surroundings."
"Across TV programs, media platforms, events and through other opportunities BronxNet and the Bronx Strong Campaign invite you to forge pathways to health and fitness. Whether you are an individual, family or organization working to ameliorate health conditions, the Bronx Strong Campaign is your vehicle and BronxNet is your partner to help make a positive impact on health and health awareness in our communities," says Mr. Knobbe.
