I am sure that this will come as a surprise to many people but Anna Kournikova, one of the top professional tennis players of the 1990s is now the new Biggest Loser trainer taking over from Jillian Michaels.
Anna Kournikova had a very successful career as a pro tennis player although she has a very strange stat that although she spent as much time in the top 10 as she did in mans magazines she somehow did not ever win a pro tennis tournament at the top level.
Although not a trainer as we would expect on the Biggest Loser, Anna Kournikova has written a book on training your body.
Anna Kournikova New Biggest Loser Trainer
Anna Kournikova’s hiring is part of a bigger change in the way that the Biggest Loser is as a show, which is finishing its 11th season tonight. Todd Lubin, an executive producer of “The Biggest Loser,” said that next season will see the show “getting slightly away from just the tape measure, and getting into overall well being and health. That’s where Biggest Loser needs to go.”
Mr. Lubin said he and the other producers “intentionally tried to not replace” Jillian Michaels, who announced late last year that the eleventh season would be her last.
This season we saw two people aduitioning for the spot of new trainer as we all knew that Jillian Michaels was leaving the Biggest Loser after this season but apparently Cara Castranouva and Brett Hoebel where not who the People running the Biggest Loser wanted as the new trainer.
So my question now is, what does Anna Kournikova know about training others? How good will she be? And most importantly to me how will the chemistry between Anna Kournikova and Bob Harper be?
The next season is starting soon so I guess we will have those questions answered soon. In the meantime let me know what your idea is of the direction the show has to go and what Anna Kournikova new Biggest Loser Trainer will bring to the show.
