“Workout 357″ by Legendary Dance/Rap group Oaktowns 357 sets the Fitness Industry on fire
With so much death and illness attacking the HipHop and Urban community, Sweet LD and Lil P of Oaktowns 357, felt the need to share their healthy eating and fun workout routine with the world.
Forth Worth, Texas- Workout 357, a high energy dance-fitness program that unites world beats with urban flavor and takes Oaktowns 357 fans around the world, announces a special Health & Fitness program to help teens and adults enjoy being fit the Hip Hop Healthy way. Oaktowns 357 has been known for over a decade as the premiere example of dance & hiphop; starting out as the main dancers for MC Hammer and eventually having a successful solo career as “Oaktowns 357″.
The ladies, who were already in talks about bringing out an enjoyable, hiphop based, daily workout felt that the passing of legendary rapper “Heavy D”, who once was under the same management as the group, really served as motivation to do so…. Another big motivation for the project was Sweet L.D’s loss of her brother at an early age to Diabetes and the fact that she herself suffers from High Blood Pressure… In conjunction, these things ultimately led to the decision that it was not only important, but also necessary to add a healthy component to the project.
It has been widely complained about that the entertainment industry doesn’t offer a Healthcare Package and judging from the financial loses in the industry from 2010 to 2012; it doesn’t seem like we are about to see any benefits within the near future. For entertainers constant shows, appearances, parties, drinking and balancing life with work, cause the body to gradually to shut down. “Healthy life or Die” begins to be the campaign.
The full project “Workout 357″ consists of healthy eating tips, a full workout from Warm Up to Cool Down and discussions with Doctors, nutritionists, as well as, testimonies and struggles. “Our audience will have a chance to learn the workout through our bi weekly blogs on the Oaktowns 357 site.” says Sweet L.D. Oaktowns 357 will also travel to various health and fitness centers for live demos of the Workout and to conduct healthy living workshops at healthcare facilities nationally.
The ladies of Oaktowns 357 have recently sat down with “Sister 2 Sister” Magazine, “HipHop Weekly”, “Allhiphop.com” and other prominent magazines to discuss this upcoming project and to let everyone know that Oaktowns 357 is back. The “Workout 357″ trailer is currently online.
The trailer features the new single “Get Up On It” from Oaktowns 357 and “It is the perfect song to get the body in workout mode.” says Lil P of Oaktowns 357. “We want people to have fun and just enjoy living. Taking your life back one step at a time.”
