New York, NY (PRWEB) August 31, 2007

Heavy.com, one of the web’s leading online brands and the leader for 18-34 year old guys is turning fatties fit with “Workout from the Pen,” an irreverent new exercise series taught by Alhambra Correctional Facility’s Cell Block 5, Workoutfromthepen.heavy.com/).

Heavy’s fitness “insiders” show you that you don’t need a fancy gym membership get in shape, just a few phone books, and some time–a lot of time! The “Workout from the Pen” channel also features the now legendary Filipino prison yard “Thriller” video, in addition to a series of the famed dancing troupe’s popular dance routines.        

“Our audience knows that prison is where dudes get seriously huge, but instead of going on a crime spree before getting ripped, they can just go to Heavy.com,” said Jason Marks, VP of Programming for Heavy. “Further, we’re so proud that ‘Workout from the Pen’ inspired prisoners from as far away as the Philippines to get in shape that we’ve paid homage to them by including their amazing Thriller video and other routines on the channel.”
