Tosca: Flexing at 49

FINALLY!! We have a set-in-stone date for the debut AND a name for the show. Tosca: Flexing at 49 will air Saturday June 6 at 7:00pm EST on the VIVA network in Canada.

I have included a summary of each episode, most of which won't surprise those of you who have been blogging with me from the beginning.

Here's the link and the episode summary from the Channel Canada website:

Episode 1: We meet Tosca Reno - author, entrepreneur, fitness model, mother of four daughters and a fitness and health expert. She has decided to come out of competition retirement and compete in two different fitness competitions. We follow her journey over 16 weeks as she trains and follows a very restricted diet with the goal of winning Las Vegas. Her husband and trainer, Robert Kennedy, will attempt to keep her on target as she juggles her many responsibilities. As a columnist with Oxygen magazine, Tosca receives many requests for help from readers and, in addition to everything else, has decided to help Kelly and Craig Newell with their weight and exercise challenges.

Episode 2:
Tosca has begun her rigorous training for two fitness competitions, but she is distracted by the pending departure of three of her daughters. Rachel is off to Portland, Oregon, Kiersten to the Netherlands and the Kelsey must choose which ballet school she will attend. Tosca’s training is taking a back seat.

Episode 3: Tosca is now just six weeks away from competition, and she has to focus on the training and dieting. Novice competitor, Janice Farmer, has asked Tosca to give her some coaching. Tosca agrees because she understands the challenges 42 year-old Janice is about to face, as this is the same age Tosca first entered into competition. Robert views it as just another distraction and warns Tosca that her training must come first.

Episode 4: It is almost time for the first competition. Tosca is beginning to feel like a chemistry experiment in terms of when to eat and train. She is having challenges with her outfits for the competition and continues to work with first time competitor Janice on posing techniques. Tosca decides that she too needs some posing pointers of her own; but, could last minute adjustments to her posing routine prove to impede her performance? The day of the competition arrives. Will Tosca take home the prize?

Episode 5: Tosca did not do as well as she had hoped. However, before she goes into extreme training mode, she has decided to travel with Robert to visit her daughter Kiersten in the Netherlands. Instead of a rest, she finds a distraught daughter and the Dutch food is not agreeing with her diet. Tosca returns to Toronto committed to getting back to her training. However, the distractions continue. She needs to complete the writing of a book and helps her daughter Kelsey deal with disappointment.

Episode 6: Las Vegas is approaching, and Tosca is still not focusing on her training. She has gone to the aid of Kelly and Craig Newell who are just not getting to the gym and their weight has plateaued. Her newest book is in the final stages but still requires a lot of effort to complete. One of Tosca’s dreams is to get on the cover of Oxygen magazine in a bikini. She hopes to fulfill this dream at the latest photo shoot, but the powers that be may not agree. The day of Janice’s competition has arrived and Tosca is there to give her support.

Episode 7: Tosca discovers that she did not get the cover of Oxygen wearing a bikini. Knowing she will never look this cut and ripped again, she convinces Robert to schedule a re-shoot for the cover. Tosca orders her warrior outfit for Las Vegas and is attempting to finish her book. The time arrives to leave for Vegas. All of the final preparations will happen there. At last, the pre-judging begins. Will all the training and dieting be worth it?

Episode 8: Tosca did not do as well in the prejudging as she had anticipated. Now everything is on the line for the finals. Then it is all over…did she achieve her goal? She heads back to Toronto. She reconnects with Janice Farmer and is pleased that Janice has found more confidence and is thinking about starting her own business. Tosca also checks in with Craig and Kelly Newell and finds that they have each lost approximately 22 kilos and are thrilled with their new lifestyle. Tosca’s entire family is coming home for Christmas and she is glad that her competition days are over. She is discovering new adventures and possibilities. She is beginning the next chapter of her life.

Tosca i was here for you thru all of that. You did awesome during that time. I think you are enjoying your new stage of life. I am in that stage also and doing awesome too. You have never shined or looked so darn good. EXCELLENT girl!!!! You are loved by many. On another note. I sometimes train too hard and I know it. I often dont feel strong doing daily things because my arms, legs, ect are so fatigued. When this happens do you suggest backing off, and letting the muscle repair. I am happy with how I look. I look strong, just at times I dont feel as strong as i look. tHANKS

Congrats, Tosca! I'd love to watch it - will it be available to watch online? I'm in California, and don't have access to Canadian tv.

Congrats Tosca....and thanks for changing my life.



I absolutely love your hair growing out. I got mine cut because I loved your short hair. Very athletic looking, but it looks fantastic longer too. You have a ton of people wanting to view your show. Add me too the list in Colorado. Love everything about you. Love How your family comes first! Holly Heath

Mary said...

Just found your new show and missed the first part by the time I turned it on.

Turning 50 soon and worked so hard in 2005 to get in good shape, so I know I can do it too. But this couldn't come at a better time. I feel like now I can get back in there and look my best, can't wait to catch the show again.

I've always wondered why when people turn 50 the magazines fail to cover this? I know a couple of fabulous 50's out there, but would be encouraging to see more.

Thanks for having the courage to take us on your journey!
