Well here we go again. Biggest Loser Season 11 starts tonight and this season is expected to be even “bigger” than every other season has been.
There are going to be a few things to watch for tonight that I am excited about.
Two New Biggest Loser Season 11 Trainers
There seems to be a bit of a change coming on Biggest Loser Season 11. You may remember a few years ago Jillian Michaels left for a season or two and Kim Lyons was brought in . Most people did not like Kim but by the end of her time she seemed to soften up on camera and was a lot easier to like as a trainer. Bob Has been there the whole time, says he would never leave the show and now Jillian says that this is her last season as she concentrates on other parts of her life including adopting some kids and living a more normal life.
Further to this there are two new trainers starting tonight. This has been perhaps a terribly kept secret but here is what I have heard around the blogosphere on who the new trainers will be it looks like Brett Hoebel and Cara Castronova.
Brett Hoebel – Brett is a 15-year veteran in the health & wellness industry and is a popular celebrity trainer and founder of Hoebel Fitness. Brett is one of the most sought-after -loss, nutrition and lifestyle coaches in New York. His RevAbs program infomercial of ab-focused workout DVDs also came out this year.
Brett’s integrative philosophy and body-mind approach come from his diverse experience in Eastern and Western disciplines, including his martial arts training in Afro-Brazilian capoeira and Muay Thai kickboxing as well as his undergrad education as a premed in biomedical science and post-graduate studies in functional strength training, nutrition, yoga and holistic health.
Cara Castronova -Cara is a ex-champion boxer and a fantastic boxer for sure but she has been working on her acting and has been in a few movies over the last few years but is just really getting started.
A lot of people seem to be bashing her on her lack or credentials but really if Cara is the new Biggest Loser trainer she will be in charge of just a few people and as we all know motivation is the biggest part of loss once you get your eating and exercise in place. I am sure she knows how to get in shape with all the training that comes into become a champion level athlete.
So is this season a tryout for these guys? Are we going to see three trainers in the future or are we going to see one of these two new guys actually take over Jillian Michaels spot on the Biggest Loser Season 12?
Two People Starting Over 500 Pounds
We have seen a lot of big people on the Biggest Loser for sure but on Biggest Loser Season 11 apparently there will be to contestants that will be over 500 pounds. As we saw whne people et over 400 pounds there is a lot more to worry about then just losing weight.
I always have to wonder and maybe we will get a bit of insight this season. If you can walk at 500 pounds then you need lower body strength to carry that mass but what about upper body strength? How can you lose 200 pounds of fat and not lose all of your muscle? Over the long term this is easy, do weights, build muscle mass, and then lose your fat slowly at the same time. But how do you lose 20 pounds a week of fat without losing what little muscle you have? There are a few questions.
The Rolly Polly Guy
This is my kids highlight to see tonight. In the commercial for Biggest Loser Season 11 there is some guy that falls off of a treadmill (come on, why do they make someone fall off every season). And instead of just falling this person seems to roll off like a ball. We have seen this highlight a bunch of times on our PVR and I am looking forward to seeing it on the show tonight. I do hope though that the guy is ok.
So I know that last season I said I was onde iwth the Biggest Loser. I know that I should be, it is the train wreck of the diet industry and is really teaching some bad ways to lose (harsh dieting and 5-6 hours a day of exercise) but I do really like to see the tips thaey give and I think the show as badly edited as it is has some interesting moments.
Have fun tonight watching Biggest Loser Season 11 and we can talk about it tomorrow here.
