'Fuzion Fitness' goes regional

"Fuzion Fitness" instructor Alexis Perkins and her team of aerobic dancers are being seen in more places than usual. That's because the show is now enjoying a regional broadcast.

Telecom has been producing the workout show, which airs on NNPS-TV Cox 47/FiOS 17, for over a year. Perkins was a Telecom student years ago when she attended Warwick High School, and she collaborated with Instructional Supervisor Ray Price to create the show. "Fuzion Fitness" serves as both programming for the station and a training tool for current students, who operate the cameras and assist with the show's production.

Viewers have commented how they enjoy having a free and convenient exercise program they can do in their own home, but up until recently that has been limited to Newport News residents, since the channel is mostly unavailable elsewhere. (Verizon FiOS customers can view the show throughout Hampton Roads on Channel 17, but Cox viewers see their city's school programming on Channel 47.)

Perkins wanted to change that, so other viewers in the area could see the show. Once the show was established, she contacted other nearby cities to see if they would be interested in airing the program. She sent them DVD's of the show, and many of the stations added it to their lineups.

"Fuzion Fitness" now airs in Hampton, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach in addition to Newport News.

It can also be seen via the nnpstv.com webcast whenever it is showing on the channel (see Newport News days and times below). Or viewers may watch it on demand online.
