When you have a powerful reach into the public mindset like celebrity gossip-queen extraordinaire Perez Hilton, one might say it’s best to use that power for good, rather than evil. While there are some who agree Hilton’s devotion to snark and honesty when it comes to celebrity reporting is definitely a force of goodness, Hilton is taking himself to a new level of fitness.
That’s right, Perez Hilton recently launched another brand new website, expanding his massive online empire, and the tagline: FitPerez–Focused on fitness, health and wellness + celebrities!
In the last three years, Hilton managed to shed an impressive 60 pounds, and along with providing what he bills as real health advice and articles, he also plans to share some of the exercise and eating tips he employed during his three-year weight loss extravaganza.
Though now that Perez works with a group of personal trainers seven days a week, in the beginning he started out slow. He walked thirty minutes every day and began to focus on portion control when eating–two major steps in the right direction.
Along with fitness advice and tips from Perez himself, he also plans to incorporate celebrity interviews, as well as interviews with some of the top celebrity fitness trainers in Hollywood, food and fitness trends and mood and health issues that face the general public on a regular basis.
As I combed through the first page of articles on FitPerez, I was excited to see the angles he was already approaching from, including anorexia support information, celebrity anti-smoking sentiment and even a little positive support for Jessica Alba, who according to Perez seems to be feeling less than attractive since she had her daughter
Like I said above, seeing someone with as far and powerful reach as Perez Hilton using his voice to address health and fitness concerns in a manner the gossip hungry, fashion conscious general public can understand is a beautiful thing. Maybe it will help cull the notion that the beautiful people get by on bad habits and partying alone, cutting down on the trend to follow in their footsteps.
