Ron Jones-The Today Show appearance

Wellness Friends,
I’ll be featured on The Today Show this Friday, July 24th. We just taped my section of a piece yesterday in Ventura, CA on the issues related to child obesity and child abuse. The segment is supposed to air on the 7:00 AM hour; however, you will be able to access the segment after the broadcast on the website:

With obesity rising last year in 23 states and no states in America losing weight, child obesity is also a serious health issue. As a licensed Wellcoach and Avenger of Health, I hope to raise awareness with parents in America that will trigger action and behavioral changes at home for health, wellness, and prevention instead of sickness and disease.

“Big Ron” Carolus will be featured with me during the workout portion of the show. Big Ron has lost 140 pounds in less than a year through healthier eating and daily exercise. I’ve met some of the biggest names in fitness including Jack LaLanne—Big Ron is one of my absolute fitness heroes of all time! At 350 pounds and age 50, Big Ron recently hiked up to base camp on Mt. Whitney—an elevation of 12,000 feet—and was PASSING people on the trail. For those of you thinking you are too out of shape to try hiking or to be physically active—think again…hit the trail and take your kids with you.

Check out the show—then throw down for health and fitness.

Mitch Albom Show today

I got invited to be a guest on the Mitch Albom radio show on WJR News Talk 760 AM in Detroit this afternoon with Mitch Albom. Mitch Albom is a best-selling author of several books including "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" along with running his radio show. I wanted to say thanks to Mitch and his producer because they were an absolute pleasure to work with today. I've done a few media gigs--some of the hosts were not pleasant and didn't give me a chance to speak properly. Today I got time to answer their questions appropriately on the critical issue of child obesity. The show had high energy and was bias for action. I feel like we made a difference today to create awareness about preventing child obesity.
For more on Mitch Albom, go to
Also, we taped The Today Show segment on child obesity in Ventura, CA. It should air Friday during the 7AM hour--possibly Thursday--but more than likely it will be Friday. It will be available off for reference. I'll keep y'all posted on the link...stay tuned!
In proactive health tonight in a warm SoCal, Coach RJ!

Coach RJ-National Media This Week!

Avengers of Health!
I’ve got some national media updates. I’m doing some media projects on child obesity as child abuse this week.

I’ll be on the Mancow Radio Show out of Chicago on Wednesday morning, July 22nd @ 5:30 AM PST. This is a syndicated show in 60 markets with about 3 million listeners.

Listen live PST to me on Mancow at KJZN-FM in Fresno tomorrow at 5:30 AM:

I’ll be on The Today Show this Friday, July 24th. We are taping my part of the segment tomorrow in Ventura, CA. I’ll be working out with a couple corporate clients and some of their children. The topic is the same—child obesity.

I was quoted in a recent USA Today article related to the South Carolina child obesity and child abuse case in court. The article can be viewed at the link below:

The time to make a stand for straight up NO BS health and fitness is NOW. If I was just running around with The Lean Berets making comments to offend people and put them down, it would be socially irresponsible. My statement reflects my efforts and efforts of The Lean Berets to quickly raise awareness about SERIOUS health issues with Truth, Urgency, and Passion!

In health, Coach RJ!

"Big Ron" Carolus-Avenger of Health!

"Big Ron" Carolus & Ron Jones
Avengers of Health!

Just put up an AMAZING new Lean Berets Radio Show with "Big Ron" Carolus! This guy kicks serious ass and is a true Avenger of Health! Big Ron went from 610 pounds down to 350 and is still losing. Barely alive, drinking an 18 pack of Pepsi a day, and barely able to walk or hold a job due to weight, now he's cranking off 2-3 hours per day workouts 7 days a week! He's in better shape than people half his size. This guy throws down and gets it on baby!
