Lionsgate’s BeFit has added a new show to its online fitness channel.
“StarFit” features stars, trainers to the stars and trainers who are stars themselves leading a variety of short workouts. Learn how some actors get in shape through the latest trends in fitness from crossfit and zumba to yoga and parkour.
The show is hosted by the effervescent Kym Johnson, best recognized from “Dancing With the Stars” and the “DWTS” workout DVDs. New episodes premiere every Friday.
The first episode features celebrity trainer Andrea Orbeck (who has worked with Heidi Klum, Amanda Bynes, Alicia Silverstone), giving a short workout to get back your body after having a baby.
Other episodes will feature actor Dolph Lundgren doing a workout he did to get ready for the “Expendables” films; Mary Helen Bowers, who helped Natalie Portman get that svelte dancer’s body in Black Swan, leading a ballet body workout; and former MLS player Jimmy Conrad with a soccer workout.
The segments are about five minutes long and meant to give you a taste of different workouts.
BeFit is Lionsgate’s ad-supported site for free, original fitness shows, focusing on the latest trends in fitness and featuring top trainers and brands. The channel also recently launched another show, “You Asked For It,” which features host Melana Scantlin with a different fitness expert such as Denise Austin answering questions on nutrition and fitness. New episodes premiere every Thursday on the BeFit channel.
