'Celebrity Fit Club' is filmed in Los Angeles and aired on VH1 in the U.S. The show is now into it's 7th season.
In each episode the celebrities have attended a 'Fit Camp' or 'Boot Camp' where they take part in a range of physical and motivational activities designed to shed the pounds, increase team spirit and rivalry, and win prizes.
You'll see them at home or work struggling to maintain their regime. And in each episode you'll see each celebrity at the 'Weigh In Ceremony' where they'll be weighed and judged by Harvey, Dr. Ian Smith and Rhonda Britten.
Harvey returns each season to make sure the Fit Club members get off their asses and WORK!
