A little over a week ago, Rochester's Downtown Fitness Club kicked off its second Celebrity Boot Camp. From the club's Web site:

Do you think you could beat local personalities in a weight loss contest?

Here’s your chance to find out.

The Downtown Fitness Club’s Rochester Celebrity Boot Camp is a 6 week “team” weight loss contest to see which 2, 3 or 4 person team can lose the greatest percentage of body weight in the period between Monday, June 9th and Monday, July 14th.

There is a $25 donation to charity per person to enter and membership at the Downtown Fitness Club is not required (anyone who participated in the first RCBC must be a DFC member to participate again).

The team that loses the greatest percentage of body weight from their starting weight between the initial and final weigh-ins will win the title of Rochester Celebrity Boot Camp Champions.

Well, it just so happened that Batavia's favorite Rock Jock-ette was tuned into a Rochester radio station when they announced that several on-air personalities would join up, and she couldn't keep from roping in a teammate and signing up herself. We're talking, of course, about WGCC 90.7 FM DJ Robyn. But let's not take the spotlight from her. Here she is, in her own words:

Robyn's got five weeks to slim down and tone up, and you can be sure The Batavian will be there in July when Robyn hits the scales to see if she won.

Long gone are my own days behind the microphone in a broadcast booth at a college radio station — I jocked for a couple years at RIT's underground rock station — but today I got to relive the delirium as I joined deejay Robyn at Genesee Community College. Robyn spins rock of all stripes (though mostly classic, she says) for WGCC 90.7 FM, where she doubles as the station's public relations director.

Her personality is perfect for radio: cheeky, garrulous and none too shy of the microphone's allure. It was no surprise, then, that she was also a perfect video tour guide to take us behind the scenes at the station and tell us a bit about herself, the music and what it takes to run a radio show.

Thank you to everyone at WGCC for letting me and my camera in your sacred space, no questions asked. Look forward to working with you all again.
