CAPITAL DISTRICT — Do you think you need to go to New York City or Los Angeles to find the Next Fitness Phenomenon?
Think again. That’s right, our very own Kyle Coletti of Troy, owner of Focusmaster Fitness Studios in Troy and Loudonville was recently crowned the winner of “Sweat Inc.” on SpikeTV, for his 30-Minute Kickboxing Workout.
“Sweat Inc.” was an unscripted competitive series hosted by fitness expert Jillian Michaels, who is best known for her tough, no B.S. attitude on NBC’s, The Biggest Loser.
On “Sweat Inc.,” Michaels and her co-judges combed the country to find the top 27 aspiring fitness entrepreneurs to put their workout programs to the test to see which one would be poised to be “America’s Next Fitness Phenomenon.” Coletti felt confident with his 30 Minute Kickboxing Workout because of the wide range of clients that train at his studios in the Capital District.
“Most of our members have no kickboxing experience before coming to Focusmaster and many have struggled on their own so our smaller community, motivation, and the exciting class environment that we create is empowering,” said Coletti.
Coletti was provided one male and one female client to train for four weeks to test the benefits of his program and the Focusmaster workout delivered. Coletti’s female client lost a total of seven pounds and his male client lost over 21 pounds in ONLY 30 days. “We’ve had members lose 30, 40, 50 and even 100 pounds training at our studios, so I just stuck to our everyday workout program that we run because it works”, said Coletti.
To test overall likability, one challenge was to run 100 participants through each entrepreneur’s workout. In the end, Focusmaster won, having triple the number of participants choosing Coletti’s workout over the next competitor.
“Working out can be a love hate relationship, but we’ve found a formula that works … it’s only 30 minutes, so you’re in and out, and it’s a positive, non-intimidating environment. Our lights are down low, the music gets pumping and there are no distracting mirrors. Members tell us all the time that they have never been able to stick with a workout program until they found Focusmaster. Now they are feeling and looking better than ever” said Coletti.
With only two entrepreneurs remaining, it was up to Michaels and her panel of judges to hear one last pitch before they chose the winner. “Words cannot describe the nerves, but when Jillian said ‘Focusmaster you are America’s Next Fitness Phenomenon’, it was an unbelievable feeling,” said Coletti.
