The HipHop Healthy Workout357 by Legendary Dance/Rap group “Oaktown’s 3.5.7” makes national headlines.

Oaktowns 357’s Sweet LD & Lil P first interviewed with “Sister2Sister” magazine in December, 2011. At that time, they mentioned they were planning a “Big, Healthy, HipHop Workout Project”. But it was still “hush-hush”… Lol. However, they did talk about their new single “Get Up On It” and the great feedback they have been getting on the song. Once the trailer was released in May, 2012 “Sister2Sister” revisited the story and gave the trailer a supportive thumbs up. http://tinyurl.com/workout357s2s

The ladies were then interviewed by Biba Adams of “Allhiphop.com” in March for Women’s History Month, Oaktown’s 3.5.7 stated that they were working on a fitness program; and they kept their word. Workout 357 is a high-energy dance/fitness program that combines world beats with urban flavor and takes Oaktown’s 3.5.7. fans on a proverbial trip around the world, while helping teens and adults enjoy being fit “The Hip Hop Healthy Way”.

In June 2012, Oaktowns 357 interviewed personally by Celebrity Journalist & Editor in Chief of HipHop Weekly (Cynthia Horner), were both informative and passionate about their huge, upcoming Health Project. They talked about bringing out an enjoyable, hiphop based, daily workout and stated that “they felt 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 stemmed from 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, in addition to, the fitness portion of the project.

Since then, Oaktowns 357 has been asked to appear on several of your favorite reality shows and to workout some of your favorite celebrities. Also, on August 4th, 2012, Oaktowns 357 will be LIVE in Atlanta for the Official Introduction of “Workout 357″ to the Public at NuFitU (Nutrition-Fitness-A Positive U) brought to you by Ben-Jammin Music, LLC and Exchange Park Recreation Center.

It is important that sponsors like these stand up and say “I am here for the community” and “We all believe in a NuFitU initiative”!

Background for Initiative:
Millions of Americans with different disease states could benefit from the clinical skills of their community pharmacists, as well as, access to their local pharmacies for support in managing; Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Obesity, High Cholesterol and Cancer. However, Pharmacist/Business Manager “Dr.Frances Glenn” feels that prevention is much better than having to cure a disease state and that healthy eating, fitness, and positive mental status can result in having ultimate well being.

This year’s event will be focused on specifically encouraging the Georgia Community where our youth and adults are rapidly declining in their health. Also, what we have discovered over the years is that in order to obtain ultimate health you must self-educate or obtain that information through education. Thus, eating the right foods, exercising, and maintaining a positive thought status contributes to an individual’s ultimate health and well being.

Moreover, our goal for the “NuFitU” event is to bring Atlanta’s top Celebrities, Fitness/Dance Instructors, Healthy Food Experts, and Healthy Venues to one place, in order to bring to our communities a “Healthy Experience”.

“This is certain to be the most personally rewarding event for anyone aspiring to live a healthy life.” said BET’s 106 & Park/Lens on Talent’s R&B artist “JeBron”. JeBron feels that, as a musician, it is very important to take care of yourself. Life on the road and the party scene for an artist doesn’t always offer the best foods in a hurry. He recently created a webisode series called “Music & Meals”. The goal of the show is to teach fans how to cook a healthy meal and enjoy the perfect music blend. Episodes can be seen at “www.jebronmusic.com”.

This day will include teaching on how to cook and obtain healthy foods in our area including, organic, raw, vegan, vegetarian, and fresh juices to heal/sustain the body. Various fitness gurus will educate our community and teach easy, unique, and fun fitness/dance routines that will keep them fit. Health care professionals will be available for questions and health testing. Lastly, our celebrities will be there to motivate, educate, as well as demonstrate, what it takes to bring this full circle.

“NuFitU” encourages individuals throughout the globe to make small, simple changes that lead to healthier lives. The event takes place Saturday August 4th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at EXCHANGE PARK RECREATION CENTER, 2771 Columbia Drive Decatur, GA 30034
