Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 7, 2010
This thirteen episode reality TV show goes live on September 25th and features Educational and Instructional programming showcasing sixteen ultimate women dedicated to the sport of Mixed Martial Arts who overcome extraordinary challenges each episode. These ultimate women are immersed in real life challenges surrounding everyday issues that many Americans face, such as obesity, education and literacy, homelessness, foster care, cancer and disabilities. Each physical challenge will reward the winner, or penalize the loser, while imparting educational information on nutrition, fitness, general health and wellness, financial management, and other relevant information. All challenges will be both entertaining and enlightening and will ultimately benefit a charitable cause whose works will be highlighted. The charities will be presented with a donation in the name of the contestant who wins the challenge.
The program is hosted by Joanna Krupa and Amber Nichole.
Joanna was named the World’s Sexiest Swimsuit Model and has been featured on many magazine covers including MAXIM® and PLAYBOY®. She also appeared in Dancing with the Stars®. She is currently a top judge in Poland’s Next Top Model.
Amber Nichole is a former UFC® Octagon Girl. She has had numerous roles as a host as well as an actress in movies, TV shows, commercials and has also been featured in many top magazines. She is a Las Vegas Celebrity and her likeness appears on several billboards in and around Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
“Although we embraced this opportunity on many levels, it was the charitable approach that really resonated with Throwdown” reported David Vautrin, CEO Throwdown Industries. “The series also features The Throwdown Training Center in Las Vegas, its leadership, trainers and Throwdown techniques. Our Training center provided authenticity to the program as it is the home of many well known top MMA fighters like Forrest Griffin, Evan Dunham, Amir Sadollah, Matt Riddle, Todd Duffee and many others. The UWC program is led by Pro-Fighter John Wood. ”John is an incredible mentor, leader and coach who really connects with athletes irrespective of their gender.”
“Throwdown and its team have been paramount in the production of the Ultimate Women’s Challenge," commented Lyle Howry, President of LHP entertainment. “Although we had initially considered filming this production in Hollywood, we determined that for the first season we would utilize one of the nation’s top MMA Training Centers while utilizing Las Vegas as the setting for many of the challenges."
The Throwdown Training Center has been featured on many programs and publications such as Fight Magazine and MMA Business. Many top networks have been by the Throwdown Training Center over the last ten days looking to capture a sneak preview of this impending fall program.
