Pompano Beach, FL, April 19, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- All journeys begin with a single step. This week, the Mission Makeover ladies are taking on their biggest challenge yet -- a 5K run. Make sure to tune in on Monday, April 21st at 7:30 am (ET/PT) to watch an all new episode of Mission Makeover™ airing on the Balancing Act® on the Lifetime Channel, to see if they make it across the finish line.
Getting up at the crack of dawn, the women meet up with Adriana Martin, celebrity trainer, who puts them through the paces of their pre-race prep. Find out who says, “I’m more afraid of my workout with you than I am of the race!”
With friends and family gathered for support, the women line up at the starting line. Between the tears and cheers, excitement and anxiety, will the ladies huff and puff or breathe easy throughout the 5K race?
To assist them in their Mission Makeover quest, they receive these fitness tools:
- Therapeutic Tape and Olympic Spirit from SpiderTech – There’s nothing that stops you in your tracks to a great workout than an injury, aches, pains or sprains. 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist and 7-time National Champion Dotsie Bausch meets up with the ladies to give them a winning pep talk and shares her experiences from the Olympics about minimizing workout discomfort with Spider Tech therapeutic tape. Karena Wu, physical therapist from SpiderTech, shows the ladies the 100% cotton pre-cut tape that mimics that the elasticity of the skin, stimulates receptors in skin to minimize discomfort and lasts up to 5 days even in the shower. Game On.
- Health Data and Heartbeats from Avery Medical Vancive – Having worn and tested out the Metria IH1 device, which gave them data on their calories burned, activity level and sleep activity, the ladies are ready to try the next level of the data collecting device, the Metria IH2. These high-tech miniature wireless devices are the first of their kind, allowing users to collect more than 5,000 pieces of uninterrupted medical and health data per minute… for a full 7 days without removing it. Matt Pack, trainer, joins Colleen Ward from Vancive who explains how the Metria IH2 has all the benefits of the Metria IH1 but also adds more information about heart health, such as heart rate and respiration rates after a tough workout.
How many pounds and inches came off on race week? Find out by watching “Weekly Stats Powered by Sports Authority.”
