Buddy Up Plymouth 2017



PARC-Plymouth Arts & Recreation Complex is excited to announce that they are bringing the insanely popular Buddy Up Fitness Challenge back to Plymouth in September 2017!

The Buddy Up Fitness Challenge is a life-changing and innovative community health program that has helped hundreds of individuals in Plymouth, Wayne, Westland, and other nearby areas over the past 5 years. The smash hit TV show “Biggest Loser” finalist, Buddy Shuh, leads the program and uses his life experiences to help individuals make reasonable, sustainable, and meaningful changes toward achieving a healthy lifestyle.

Participants are divided up into teams, led by volunteer “Team Captains” who will mentor, inspire, and support their teammates to success throughout the program. Research has consistently shown that support from others, i.e. “buddying up” can make the difference between success and failure with any fitness plan. Community support is the key component to the program.

Participants will meet every Saturday morning from September 23, 2017 through November 11, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in the Main Gym at PARC, 650 Church Street, in downtown Plymouth, for 30 minutes of exercise and 30 minutes of nutritional education. Various types of workouts, from Strength Training to Yoga will be introduced to participants by certified fitness professionals from Z Spot Fitness Studio, a program sponsor. The program will kickoff on September 22nd 7:00 p.m. in the PARC theater where you will have a chance to meet Buddy Shuh along with the Captains, Trainers and other participants.

The cost to participants is $50.00 and includes:

  • 5 workouts led by professional trainers
  • 8 weekly meetings providing information about fitness and nutrition along with healthy food samples led by Buddy Shuh
  • A fun “warehouse” boot camp style workout

Testimonials: The best way to learn about the Buddy Up Fitness Challenge is from the people who have had their lives change because of it. Here are what a few of them are saying, in their own words.

Samantha M states: “Buddy up was a game changer for me. To be honest, I didn’t want to participate, but a couple of people just kept asking, so I did. I learned so much about what it means to live a healthy lifestyle. My drive to exercise has increased a lot, especially thanks to the Z Spot Fitness Studio! Doing ZUMBA and WERQ with friends is my recreation time! It’s just an added perk that those classes provide great exercise! I’m continuing to change my eating habits one step at a time, and my desire to eat fast food is completely gone (17 months and counting). I would not be on the healthy path I am now if it weren’t for Buddy Up and the amazing people that encouraged and inspired me along the way!”

From Tonya B.: “It was the end of July, beginning of August 2016, I was stuck in a rut. I would start and stop exercising, but every time I started again it was always as if I never worked out before. Always starting at the same point and never pushing myself past that, before I would stop again. I was at my heaviest weight that I have ever been, I was tired and sluggish all the time. I knew I needed to do something. I saw an ad for a program called Buddy Up. It sounded interesting but registration wasn’t until September 1. I made a note on all the calendars that I use, at work, at home and on my phone. The first thing I did when I got to work that day was sign up. Anyone who knows me will tell you that in itself is a miracle, I don’t like doing things by myself. I was excited to work the program, I made this a priority. I showed up every week, ready to work out and learn better eating habits. I found classes that I enjoyed attending and the people at The Z Spot Fitness Studio are so friendly, they knew my name after the first class. When my family would visit I would make them walk with me or go for a bike ride. My first assessment was not that great, but by the end I made some good improvements. I was so excited at the end that I couldn’t wait for the next Buddy Up!”
