Batavia, New York— Lyndsey Oliver-Farewell has dedicated the last three years of her life to working out, getting healthy and shedding over 150 pounds thanks to the help of fitness guru Tony Horton. Creator of the popular P90X workout system, it was a dream of Lyndsey to meet Tony. She got that opportunity back in September and was recently asked to be featured on the Dr. Oz show. The episode featuring Lyndsey will air today (October 31, 2011) at 4:00 pm on CBS.
In September Lyndsey attended a fitness seminar with Tony Horton and had the opportunity to briefly meet him and share her weight loss success story with him and his team. When women were being selected for the Dr. Oz show, Tony and his team remembered Lyndsey from the event and utilized Facebook to locate her. The Dr. Oz producers reviewed hundreds of Beachbody success stories and selected Lyndsey as well as two other women to be included on the show.
Lyndsey, a Technical Specialist in GCC’s Records office, was included in the 10-minute Miracle Plan to Lose Weight segment. Tony Horton shared fitness and nutrition tips as well as several success stories. Lyndsey’s success story was shared and she was included in a live work out with Dr. Oz, Tony Horton, and audience members in the episode filmed on October 18. A 10-minute workout was also filmed for viewers at home to use which is posted on the Dr. Oz website: http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/tony-horton-workout-plan
“It was a whirlwind experience! I work out at home daily to Tony Horton workout videos, P90x, 10 Minute Trainer, and Power 90, so to have the opportunity to meet him was fantastic!” Lyndsey said. “Dr. Oz and the whole crew were wonderful.”
The episode can be seen today on CBS at 4:00pm. For further information please contact Lyndsey at 585-343-0055 ext. 6325.
