WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- With the epidemic of obesity on the rise across our nation, Body & Soul® Fitness is tackling this issue with the release of "Body & Soul® Power Strength". As a fitness organization, we understand the need for exercise and the role it plays in one's overall health. This is the first title in a new series of fitness DVD's for Body & Soul, which we believe will be a start to those seeking to get healthy and shed pounds.

The DVD arrives just in time for anyone who is determined to start the New Year with a plan to get fit. "Power Parties" being held in select cities across the nation will feature the Power Strength workout (please see www.bodyandsoul.org for specific dates and locations). The newly released DVD provides options for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced. A men's version of the workout is also shown. The Power Strength workout challenges each major muscle group and is a fun, powerful, and efficient workout.

Using familiar artists like TobyMac, Mandisa, Newsboys, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Group 1 Crew, to name a few, Body & Soul seeks to bring a message of hope through the music, while helping people get in shape and stay in shape physically. We currently offer the following programs: Power Strength, Cardio/Strength, Boot Camp, Strength & Flexibility, and Basic & Beyond.

With the statistics of obesity on the rise as a nation, as well as the downturn in our economy, many Americans are losing hope. We believe we meet both the need for fitness as well as hope within our program. The difference is our evangelistic message. Since 1981, Body & Soul has been a place "where faith and fitness meet". We offer them great fitness classes with music that shares the love of Christ. Now we are offering that right in their own homes.

Body & Soul offers classes throughout the United States as well as in 15 foreign countries, with our largest contingency of international classes being throughout Africa. We have been featured on CNN, Focus on the Family, and the Janet Parshall Show.

Body & Soul® is available for fitness demonstration on Television programming as well as Radio interviews.
