Before they say “I do!” these couples get Altar’d

I don’t know this from experience, but from what I’ve heard, wedding planning is one of the most stressful life events (on par with death, moving, going to the dentist, and probably paying taxes). All that planning that goes into just a few hours of partying—from the flowers and the dress to the music and the location. Some go to great lengths to look and feel their best on their big day because it’s a symbolic ritual of new beginnings—and I understand why couples would want to feel their most confident in wedding photos.

I was approached recently to discuss a new TV show coming to Z Living Network entitled Altar’d—and I knew it would be something I’d want to watch. This reality show features soon-to-be-married couples who are separated for a 90-day period as they complete their wedding weight loss transformations. Guided by hosts and fitness experts Chris Marhefka and Erin Stutland, these couples transform not just physically but emotionally on their journey to a healthy new life. I foresee a lot of tissues and ugly crying while watching this one; I have a weakness for shows about personal transformation and happy endings (anyone else?).

Set your DVR (or DVD as I like to call it because it drives Bryan nuts)—Altar’d airs Tuesdays 8-9pm on the Z Living network. Click here for more information and updates, tips, and tricks to inspire your own health and fitness journey!

Here’s a bit more information about one of the couples featured on the show:

Natifah & Reggie

Natifah and Reggie’s unhealthy eating habits are beginning to cause tension in their relationship. With a history of high-blood pressure and diabetes in both of their families, they both feel that this challenge will greatly improve their relationship and have a massive impact on their overall quality of life.

 Bryan and I joke that we’ve been putting on our winter weight, and lately I’ve been trying to think outside the box to create flavorful, healthy dinner options and move around as much as possible on nights when the desire to Netflix and chill is overwhelming. I think watching a show like this together could be the kick in the pants we both need to get in gear this winter season.

 Will you be tuning in? Are you as much of a sucker for weight loss/personal transformation shows as I am?

Looks pretty good and I love the topics/issues they discuss and face. I don’t have cable so I’ll have to look for this show. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, love.

This one sounds really good. I’m currently on a weight loss journey, so I can see it being inspiring. I don’t tend to watch weight loss shows because the coaches, etc. often seem way too harsh!

Awesome! I love watching couples get fit together. It’s such a great bonding experience. I haven’t seen this show before, but it sounds inspiring.
