LYNDHURST, N.Y. -- Tony Gomez, owner of VIP Fitness in Lyndhurst, may not personally wear a little black dress but he knows his clients do.
Being a "CFO" Chief Fitness Officer -- as he calls himself - means making sure his clients are happy, in shape, and have room to breathe in their favorite holiday outfit.
And so, for the second time this fall, he is hosting a "Little Black Dress Challenge." The bootcamp starts Sunday, Nov. 29 and goes through Saturday, Dec. 19.
Gomez, who has been a personal trainer for five years and owner of the gym for three, said VIP specializes in transformations and creating community. To that end the gym holds several different themed challenges throughout the year. This one came about after speaking with current clients as to what they wanted to accomplish the most. Looking good in their go-to little black dress was tops on their list.
The goal of the program, said Gomez, is to get the participants comfortable in their own skin. "We address what fitness is truly about in contrast to what the media may portray on magazine covers, and so on," he said. "We want all our participants to move, feel and look better."
As part of the program, women will learn how to establish healthy eating habits and make time for themselves, specifically with fitness oriented activities. They will also work hard at toning and getting fit.
And just in case the men feel snubbed, VIP is in the midst of putting together a "Mansformation Challenge," so stay tuned.
