Torchia has recently launched the Shape Up America Campaign 30-city tour, designed to motivate people across the country to increase daily physical activity and healthy eating by showing them how to make exercise fun, and choose better foods.

This campaign targets all segments of our communities including schools, city government, civic organizations, community groups, businesses, and other people who live, work and play in America.

Now, through the development of the Shape Up America Campaign, Holistic Health Foundation, and Children’s Fitness Academy, and with the success of Operation Fitness™, Torchia intends to use this incredible opportunity to reach children and adults across the nation, helping them achieve a more positive self-worth and body image.
