Jennifer Lopez is about to teach a health and fitness class!
No, this is not the plot to a new romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez. The 45 year old actress, singer and pop icon is actually going to teach a fitness class this June!
Lopez has already released the promotional video for her upcoming fitness class, which is backed up by Body Lab, whose motto is “by women, for women”. The class is a 10 week long program, which aims at making female US citizens lose weight by buying several detoxing and cleansing products, which will allegedly help them. Lopez is calling it a challenge, since she’s challenging participants (or more likely – customers) to lose several kilograms in order to get the chance to meet her in person in NYC, New York. The promo shows Lopez in a cropped training outfit saying some positive lines like “Love yourself more than anything on the menu” and “Crack the cocoon and find the butterfly”. She also sets up the challenge by stating that the participants should exercise, sweat and run only when she’s doing it.
The products, which the Hollywood star is trying to sell, are a series of detoxes, pills and protein shakes. She claims that they will cleanse the body, speed up the metabolism and help women lose weight. More than that, she actually claims the products, which you can get for several hundred bucks, will make women look like her.
Of course, some actual fitness trainers were able to criticize Lopez and the products she’s advertising through this fitness class and her “Be The Girl” challenge. One of them states that you will never become Jennifer Lopez by drinking a pill and that these protein shakes are just simple mixtures, which are highly overpriced. After all, nobody can be Jennifer Lopez, but Lopez herself!
