First Lady Inspires Emmy Nominated Actress
Beth Chamberlin, long-time leading lady on the legendary daytime drama, “Guiding Light” has adapted her cutting edge fitness program to create a high-quality home workout, using common household items as equipment.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 28, 2011 – When Beth Chamberlin viewed Michele Obama’s video commemorating the first anniversary of her “Let’s Move” initiative to end childhood obesity, she was moved by the First Lady’s call to action.  Beth realized that her television fame and her reputation and expertise in the fitness world placed her in a unique position to contribute in a meaningful way to this effort.   So she dove into the task of creating a home fitness program for everyone. 
“I believe that most children learn their important life lessons from their parents,” said Chamberlin.  “And the best way for parents to encourage children to become more physically active is by setting the example.”  Her first goal then was to create a fitness program that was safe, effective and could be done in the home so that children could see their parents exercising and even take part.
From her experiences in operating an online health and fitness business, Beth knew that the people trying to start a fitness program often find it difficult to find the time to go to the gym.  Many are intimidated by the idea of exercising or don’t know where to start.  Still others cannot afford the cost of trainers, gyms memberships or home equipment in these difficult economic times.
“I wanted to make the journey to fitness and vitality accessible and affordable for everyone.  So the workout I created is designed to use products that people already have in their home or can be purchased in any supermarket for less ten dollars.  I also made the workout available on my website  “Beth Chamberlin Beauty, Health and Fitness,” as a gift for all those interested in taking this important step.” 
Anyone interested in using this program can go to www.bcbhf.com, download a complimentary copy of the “First Lady Fitness Workout” and begin changing their lives and those of their children today.  An introduction to this new workout can be seen on YouTube or at www.bcbhf.com.
“By offering this exercise program as a gift, I am hoping to reach those people who have not had access to home fitness before.  I believe that this program makes it possible.  I have no connection to Michele Obama nor did she endorse this program.  But, I was inspired by her initiative and I dedicate this to her.  I hope she doesn’t mind.”
Beth Chamberlin played the part of Beth Raines, on Guiding Light for 15 years.  For the past three years she has been promoting the metabolic approach to strength and fitness training using kettlebells as the primary tool.   She will be hosting a virtual launch party to celebrate the release of the First Lady Fitness Workout on April 28, 2011 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM eastern time.  Those interested in participating may call (646) 200-0147 or log on to: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/indie_intertube/2011/04/28/bethchamberlincom-launch-party.   An introduction for the first video can be seen at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=rveDCUPd8VA.
