Fitness Guru Nordin Touts Assets On ExerciseTV

Video On Demand service ExerciseTV has acquired international fitness model and personality Pauline Nordin's video workout system The Butt Bible for its on demand lineups beginning June 28.

Nordin, who stars in the Nordic version of weight loss reality series The Biggest Loser, will host six circuit-style workout videos which emphasize the toning of the gluteus maximus muscles as part of Exercise TV's The Butt Bible-brandedprogramming block, said network officials.

"Pauline Nordin is a trainer like no one else you have seen from ExerciseTV before," said Chris Mansolillo, president of ExerciseTV. "The Butt Bible programming block on ExerciseTV On Demand is a great opportunity to introduce this strong and inspiring trainer to our audience."
