NATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR HISPANIC HEALTH PARTNERS WITH
MEJORANDO TU VIDA STARRING GABRIELA SPANIC TO IMPROVE HISPANIC HEALTH
New York, NY: November 10, 2005 - Mejorando Tu Vida,
starring the world's leading novela personality
Gabriela Spanic, is revolutionizing the fitness
lifestyle of Latino women with its exercise video,
which also serves as an instruction manual for feeling
good, eating healthy, gaining confidence and learning
to love their own bodies. The National Alliance for
Hispanic Health (the Alliance) has partnered with
Mejorando Tu Vida to help Latino women move towards a
healthier lifestyle by letting Alliance members know
about the video.
Mejorando Tu Vida, produced by TriPoint Fitness
Productions and distributed by Warner Home Video, is
about more than sweating off pounds in your living
room. It's home instruction on feeling good, healthy,
confident and sexy. The videos are about
self-improvement and self-fulfilment and they are
complimented by an informative web site at
www.paratuvida.com. Mejorando Tu Vida was created to
encourage a healthier lifestyle to help combat obesity
and diabetes, which are prevalent in the Latin
community. The videos and website teach viewers how
to do that.
"Movement and physical activity are an important part
of staying healthy for ourselves and our families.
Mejorando Tu Vida presents a fun way to do that at
home using items around the household, like cans of
food and a broom, instead of the expense and time
involved with going to a gym. It's also fun! The
dance segments of Mejorando Tu Vida with salsa,
merenge, and mambo add great fun and energy," said
Jane L. Delgado, Ph.D., President and CEO of the
National Alliance for Hispanic Health.
"The National Alliance's mission is to improve the
health and well being of Hispanics and Mejorando Tu Vida is pleased to partner with The National Alliance
to help accomplish that mission with helping Hispanics
to take a proactive steps towards improving their
health," stated Mark Elenowitz, Managing Director of
TriPoint Fitness Productions, LLC.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), exercise has been shown to reduce
risk factors and help manage non-insulin dependent
diabetes, an illness that is twice as prevalent in
Hispanic communities compared to non-Hispanic whites.
Exercise has similar benefits for depression and
anxiety, illnesses that are more prevalent in the
Hispanic community, and for heart disease. With the
holiday season quickly approaching, there is even more
reason to get started with Mejorando Tu Vida now to add
regular physical activity to your life and help
balance the abundance of food available at many family
According to Dr. Delgado, "Making regular aerobic
physical activity a part of our routine is one of the
most important things we can do to improve both our
physical and mental health. A healthier you is the
best gift you could give to your family and loved ones
for the holidays." Mejorando Tu Vida provides an easy
to learn and easy to follow exercise program that
allows viewers to start and maintain this kind of
lifestyle from the comfort of his/her own home,
without the cost of a gym membership.
