Greensboro marketing guru Audretta Hall is looking to encourage Triad residents to kickstart the new year with a focus on health and wellness. From Jan. 9 through May 18, a group of well-known, respected men, including personal trainers, television personalities and business professionals, will encourage area women to take control of their health. “For the next four months, the men will host a series of free conference calls and videotape their workout routines,” said Hall, who runs Support 4 Your Dreams, a marketing, networking and advertising outfit.
“We will post the videos on YouTube so everyone can access the information. Getting the men involved has definitely helped to pique the women’s interest. Getting the information to the women so they can teach their children how to eat better and get more movement in their day is the goal.” WXII News’ Manard “Busta” Brown, author/motivational speaker Latherio Boyd and personal trainers DeWayne Thomas and Walter Whethers are among the 20 or so men who will take part. Some of them will use their own struggles with fitness as a motivational tool.
Today, some of the men will gather for a ‘before’ photo-shoot with photographers Robert Jeffers and Owens Daniels. The men will take ‘after’ photos in May. Women will vote to decide which man has made the greatest transformation during the health and wellness challenge’s culminating event – a four-hour seminar on May 18. All challenge events are free and open to the public. To learn more, email Audretta Hall at Audretta515@gmail.com or go to www.support4yourdreams.com or facebook.com/audrettas4yd.
