Highlights is a 30 minute weekly TV show featuring organizations, events, grass-roots efforts and people who move our state and community forward in a positive way.

The show is a collaboration with Kanawha County Schools, Optimum Communications and Jim Strawn & Company.

The show airs daily at 8:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Optimum’s channel 17.

The show airing January 8, 2024 – January 15, 2024 features the ‘New Year New You’ segment.

We talked with John Pennington, Franchise Owner of Hotworx Charleston and David Frye, Manager of Hotworx Charleston.



John talk about their philosophy at Hotworx. HOTWORX is a virtually instructed exercise program created for users to experience the many benefits of infrared heat absorption, while completing a 30-minute Isometric workout or 15-minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session. As the infrared heat penetrates your body causing you to sweat, the isometric postures further accelerate detoxification by physically removing the toxins from your organs through muscle contraction. They have a patented sauna that combines heat, infrared, and exercise– what they call “3D Training”– and makes HOTWORX a workout unlike any other fitness program available!

They are welcoming new members to join them and are offering a FREE workout to experience their program.

New You – Physically

David discussed how this works for everyone. It is individualized and there is absolutely no judgement. Everyone has their own goals and yours is yours.

John also discussed goal-setting. It is such a personal objective. It starts with a decision to be better than you were the day before.

New You – Mentally

When discussing ‘New Year New You’ goals and objectives, it should start with the mental health approach. Better yourself mentally, emotionally, and attitudinally, so we also interviewed a mental health professional.

Stephane Majetich, LCSW, RPT with The Counseling Nook joined us to talk about your mental approach to the new year.


Mental Health is Critical to Developing a New You

We discussed, tips to boost your mental health, strategies for families and children, and why mental health is so important.
