Shape Up Hollywood 12-Week Body Transformation ChallengeStarts January 19th; Competition Combines Semi-personal Training, Nutrition Counseling, Education, Peer support and Fun

Synergize!, the leading health and fitness mecca in South Florida, announced today it is issuing a challenge to Hollywood residents to Shape Up in 2009. Beginning January 19th, Shape Up Hollywood participants will launch their battle against unwanted bulge and bad eating with semi-personal training sessions three times per week, metabolic testing, nutrition coaching sessions, a grocery shopping tour, and unlimited group exercise classes including spinning, pilates and yoga. Fifty lucky individuals will be selected from the pool of applicants to participate in the 12-week competition to shape up in the New Year. Interested parties should apply at

The winner of Shape Up Hollywood 2009 will receive a prize package worth more than $2,000, including three months of continued training at Synergize!, a shopping spree, massage treatment and more.

"I was selected to compete in Shape Up Hollywood last year and I can honestly say that before Synergize! I was a loser...a real one...with no hope weighing 331 pounds," said Sonia Tigero, personal chef. "After 12 weeks, I was declared the Biggest Loser - or Winner - of Shape Up Hollywood, and after 16 weeks following the Synergize! program, I had lost 57 pounds! Today, I am down a whopping 100 pounds and it feels phenomenal!"

Shape Up Hollywood at Synergize! is an affordable, fun alternative to traditional personal training that offers all of the same benefits. The built-in support network of fellow participants and the old-fashioned good-natured competition make this program unique. Shape Up Hollywood 2008 had 47 contestants who lost a combined total of 262 pounds.

"I believe that everyone could use some additional motivation, especially at the start of the New Year when people have likely spent the prior month or two indulging in holiday feasts," said Shondelle Solomon-Miles, President of Synergize!. "Shape Up Hollywood is a great way for men and women to get geared up for being healthy in 2009, and to make fitness a part of their daily lives in a simple, affordable and fun way."

Applications for Shape Up Hollywood are being accepted through January 14th. There are 50 spots in the program. Interested parties should apply at
