Fit4Mom Launches MomOnAMissionTV.com

You Don't Just Watch It, You're Part of It

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2013) - A new Web TV show, "Mom on a Mission," debuted online today focusing on fitness, food, spirit and home and promises to change the way we view TV.

The show, at MomOnAMissionTV.com, is the brainchild of Fit4Mom's Lisa Druxman, creator of the highly successful Stroller Strides brand. Unlike shows that viewers simply sit back and watch, "Mom on a Mission" makes viewers an integral part of the show, interacting closely with Lisa and her special guests.

Using Watchitoo, a Web-based interactive TV platform, MomOnAMissionTV.com enables viewers to engage with the on-screen personalities before, during and after the show, using their computers to pose questions. Additionally, viewers can follow two friends of the show, Erica Capilla and Rebecca Hackney, throughout their Mom on a Mission Fitness Challenge via the Mom On A Mission TV Facebook Page.

Episodes will stream live via Watchitoo on the MomOnAMissionTV.com site on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, starting today, May 1st at 11 a.m. PST. The shows are recorded and immediately available for viewing at fans' convenience.

Watchitoo is an increasingly popular way for event organizers, TV producers, businesses, educators and others to increase engagement with their audiences and extend the reach of their brands. Up to 25 individuals or groups can join a Watchitoo interactive online HD video conference and hundreds of thousands can follow the conversation, and use social tools to interact with their connections.

The show will spotlight Lisa's Mom on a Mission Fitness Challenge, designed to help get moms active and fit because a healthy family starts with a healthy mom. The two featured moms have been given Flip Cameras and are documenting their fitness and wellness regimes. You can follow along at https://www.facebook.com/MomOnAMissionTV.

Erica Capilla, mother to a one-year-old daughter, gained 90 pounds during her pregnancy. Unhappy about her body and unable to lose her weight after a year, Erica documents her journey to wellness. Rebecca Hackney, a full-time working mom to a middle school son and daughter, struggles with trying to "do it all" and is dealing with the guilt of taking time for herself.

A robust list of special guests includes pediatrician and father of four Dr. Alan Greene as well as Robyn O'Brien, author of The Unhealthy Truth and mother of four.
