As you know I’m not a fan of NBC’s hit weight loss show The Biggest Loser. I outlined all of my issues and why I take offense to the show in my post – Why Biggest Isn’t Best and we’ve talked about the series many times here at Angry Trainer Fitness.
Well now we have another new weight loss show, this time on ABC called Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition featuring trainer Chris Powell helping individuals to lose huge sums of weight. But is the format – and the training – any better? Here’s my take…

I am a 25 year old female and am a very active person. Plus, I started going to the gym about 2 months ago on a regular basis.
My goal is to achieve a Fitness Bikini model “look”.
Do you have any workouts, tips, or program and diet you can recommend?
Years ago I was in California on a business trip and ate at an amazing fast food stop called In-N-Out Burger. What I can say is that it was truly one of the most amazing burgers I’ve eaten. It was fresh, made to order and of course, the potato wedges were incredible.
Now of course there are In-N-Out Burger chains across the US (258 locations in fact)
But, how healthy are the burgers? Let’s find out….
Last time around on Infomercial Insanity I reviewed the Health Bow, which features bodybuilder/fitness model Clark Bartram as the product’s front man. Needless to say, I didn’t think the gadget was worth your time or money so I hope you heeded my advice!
Today I’m talking about two very popular products from the Perfect Fitness range – the Perfect Pull-Up and Push–Up. While these two products target different muscle groups, the pitch is the same for both. So here goes… are they worth your hard earned cash?
So NBC’s hit weight loss show The Biggest Loser is in in full swing again – with big ratings and big weight loss results – as usual.
As you may know from my Biggest Isn’t Best piece I’m not the biggest fan of The Biggest Loser and take issue with many of the elements that make up the show’s format. Although the series is a huge success, I feel it’s missing some crucial elements that would make it a more responsible – and credible – program. So I figured now would be a good time to say what I would change about the More >
I’m a fitness enthusiast and I seem to have success with my workouts. But when it to comes to nutrition, I’m calorically challenged.
As far as keeping your metabolism up, what are your thoughts on the concept of calorie shifting; having a low calorie day followed by a high calorie day?
Also, I have heard that when a plateau is reached and weight loss halts, to not only change up the exercise routine, but to tweak your diet too. I’ve even heard it’s good to go completely off your diet for as long as a week to reset your metabolism. More >
Hey everyone! How are you all doing?
I know you’re all eating well and working out regularly – right? Remember – I’m always watching!
So the other day I wrote on my Facebook page that I had a great workout, and many of you asked me to post what it entailed. So here it is – The Whirlwind Workout!
I call it The Whirlwind Workout because I literally used every muscle and felt super pumped by the end of the routine. It was just one of those days where my energy, drive, and choice of movements aligned for a truly amazing workout. And unlike More >
I’ve recently become a fan of Shape magazine after I started following their page on Facebook. The truth is I generally find more realistic advice given out in women’s fitness publications then the guys’ magazines. The content seems to be more spiritual and complete than the “lift more weight” ethos of the men’s publications.
So this month’s Shape cover girl is Kourtney Kardashian and she’s talking fitness, life, and how she got her pre pregnancy body back. Kourtney looks great in the pages of the magazine but I think her supposed workout routine misleads women looking to shed weight and tone up. Here’s More >
