Vince being interviewed on the importance of fitness and nutrition by Radio Host Reggie Nance from 103.9 FM
Vincent Ferguson is a Speaker, Certified Personal Trainer, and author of "Get Ready, Get Set, Get Fit! " (A Guide to Developing Youth Fitness), “Six Weeks to a Flatter Stomach” (www.6weekstofitness.com), and "How to Create A-List Events on a Shoestring Budget" (). Mr. Ferguson has appeared on various television and radio programs including ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America Health” and most recently on Fox TV’s “Good Day New York.” He has been involved in fitness for over 25 years. His love for fitness began in the United States Navy, where he studied martial arts and kickboxing. Immediately upon being discharged from the Navy, Mr. Ferguson began a bodybuilding career. As a bodybuilder, he entered various competitions throughout the New York tri-state area.
Mr. Ferguson realized if physical fitness could have such a positive effect on his own body, mind, and well-being, then it could have similar effects on others, especially children. Consequently, in 1989, he founded and became president of Body Sculpt of New York, Inc., a Brooklyn based not-for-profit health and fitness organization.
In response to the alarming incidence of obesity among children, in 2004, Mr. Ferguson created the Children’s Sports & Fitness Expo. The Expo engages children in over 25 sports activities, nutrition clinics, health screenings and live entertainment – all totally free. Through this event, families gain exposure to activities, programs and services that will help them to become more physically fit, thereby reducing the risk of obesity in their lives.
Mr. Ferguson is the creator of the Walk-A-Thon for Children’s Health the Six Weeks to Fitness Challenge and Brooklyn Fit which is an ongoing fitness initiative with the Brooklyn Nets basketball team.
Mr. Ferguson is also the creator and host of the Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, where he interviews fitness and nutrition experts, along with athletes, celebrities and movers and shakers from around the world to discuss the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
Today Mr. Ferguson spends most of his time overseeing his many projects, conducting fitness workshops throughout the New York City area, and speaking on issues pertaining to health, including: “Get Ready, Get Set, Get Fit" (based on his recently released book), "How to Awaken the Superhero Within", Prevention of Chronic Diseases through Exercise and Nutrition,” “How to Flatten Your Stomach,” “Change Your Eating Habits and Transform Your Life'. In addition, Mr. Ferguson also speaks on "How to Create an A-List Event on a Shoe String Budget" (based on his book with the same title).
