JESSY MENDIOLA is happy to be hosting a physical fitness show on TV5 every Sunday at 7 AM, with primetime replay on Colours Channel on Monday at 7 PM. This is the sure indication that she’s no longer with ABS-CBN.

“But I will always feel indebted to ABS and Star Magic,” she says. “They started everything for me and Mr. Johnny Manahan helped a lot in boosting my confidence sa sarili ko.

"And I can feel their concern kahit wala na ako with them, kasi nag-text pa sila sa akin para kumustahin ako at kung ano ang nangyayari sa akin. I’ve never burn bridges with them naman kasi. Nagpaalam ako nang maayos last year pa.”

So how is it working “Fit for Life”?

“I’m enjoying it immensely and it’s really helpful to everyone, lalo sa panahon ngayon na may worldwide health crisis and health officials tell us our best defense against disease is by maintaining good health always.”

In the show, she shares her own fitness experience towards a healthier lifestyle.

“There was a time na I was out of shape and I admit na napabayaan ko rin ang sarili ko. It’s good I became a fitness enthusiast and eventually got rid off whatever excess weight I gained.”

Her show offers full body exercises for both men and women.

“Pero hindi lang ito puro exercise. I also give tips on how to do healthy dishes with recipes that are easy to follow, combined with inspiring pep talks about how to live a more fulfilling life.”

She also has special guests in each episode of the segment “Workout with Jessy”.

“The guests will help me demonstrate the various exercises routines. Tapos I sit down with our celebrity guest to talk about his or her own personal fitness journey. May guest din akong chef to show how to cook super healthy meals that are friendly to one’s budget pero masarap pa rin.”

Other segments include “Ask Jessy”, where she can accept video calls for viewers to ask her and her guest relevant questions about fitness, and “Achievement Unlocked”, where viewers who had their own weight-loss success stories can share their own victorious experiences to encourage other viewers to keep fit.

And the latest news about Jessy is that her beau, Luis Manzano, might soon be joining her on TV5.

If negotiations would not be derailed, Luis is said to be hosting a new noontime show with good friend Billy Crawford who no doubt needs a job now since his wife Coleen Garcia is due to deliver their first baby anytime soon since it’s already her “kabuwanan”.
