About CDM Mind and Body
In 2010, members of the CDM congregation, led by Pastor Cynthia Ringo, made it their mission to help one another achieve their goals of getting healthy and losing weight. To accomplish this, Pastor Ringo held seminars and workshops, and the group participated in boot camp classes led by Briant K. Mitchell at BKM Boot Camp. What transpired over the next few years was awe-inspiring: With the support of each other, the 16 members of the boot camp group lost more than 600 pounds … and counting.
After witnessing the success of her boot camp group (and experiencing weight loss herself), Pastor Ringo wanted to challenge St. Louis to get healthy as well. With the help of her son, Tommie Jr., Mind and Body was created to instill lifestyle changes within the community.
