NEW YORK, Dec. 19 -- VH1's popular fitness and nutrition series, "Celebrity Fit Club," is back for a third season.

Over two successful seasons, 15 previous Celebrity Fit Clubbers have bitched, battled, bonded (and bitched some more) through 100 days of Fit Club training. Along the way, they learned about fitness, diets and nutrition, all while losing a combined total of an incredible 465 pounds of celebrity flab.

The New Year finds them embarking on their own grueling fitness journeys and fighting together to reach their goals.
