What I’m about to share with you is 100% true. And I may upset a few people but oh well.
About a month ago I responded to a casting ad that was looking for a personal trainer for a new television show. In case you don’t know in years past I’ve submitted myself to The Biggest Loser production team but obviously never got a call. Although I’m still available! Any way, I’ve always been extremely interested in television and I have incredible passion for fitness. One of my dreams is to eventually be a personal trainer on a show and combine More >
I knew this day was coming… yep, as you may have already read today Jillian Michaels is returning to The Biggest Loser after a two-year absence. But will Jillian’s return turn around the troubled weight loss show?
Of course you all know how I feel about NBC’s hit weight loss show, but as I’ve said here on the site – The Biggest Loser just isn’t the same without Jillian. I’ve come to realize that the combination of Bob and Jillian is a unique partnership that cannot be matched. We’ve seen many others try; Kim Lyons, Brad and Cara and most recently the embarrassing Anna Kournikova. More >
Today I’m sharing the very first post I ever wrote for Angry Trainer Fitness as part of our ATF Classic strand…
Anyone who’s followed me for some time knows that I have many issues with the Biggest Loser TV show, and I’ve never held back from expressing them. In truth my view has changed a little since I first wrote this post and my attitude towards Jillian has definitely softened considerably! I now recognize she had a part to play in a show and I can’t argue with her success. In fact I quite like the work she’s doing now that More >
As you may know The Angry Trainer likes to dabble in the TV world from time to time and over the years I’ve made a few guest appearances on a range of shows. Years ago I competed in a Fox reality show called Boot Camp (finishing third) and more recently I filmed segments for MTV’s Silent Library and Spike’s Ink Master…
Well now I’m back in another TV show and this one’s a pretty spooky affair!
The show’s called Can You Survive A Horror Movie and will be airing this Friday 13th at 9pm EST on the Chiller network!
Here’s the back story! More >
Well, well – It looks like I’m once again talking about NBC’s weight loss show – The Biggest Loser. If you know anything about me, and why I’m called The Angry Trainer, you know that this show is the proverbial thorn in my side. In fact the very first article we posted here at Angry Trainer Fitness was all about my disapproval of the show’s format (see below!)
For years The Biggest Loser has been a big hit for NBC – but now that the show is in its 13th season the ratings are seriously down, from a peak of over More >
Truth be told, I’ve mellowed a bit since we launched the Angry Trainer Fitness site back in 2010…
The reason? I think I now understand better HOW and WHY people exercise, and the thinking behind their mistakes. I’ve also been enlightened by all your readers’ comments – and turned on to some new training ideas I may have previously discounted.
But there are some things that I’ll NEVER change my mind about. And today’s posting fits right into that category!
Yesterday I read on Perez Hilton about Epic Meal Time, a web based phenomenon, that involves a bunch of guys cooking insanely high calorie meals.

If you’re a regular TV watcher, you’ve undoubtedly come across numerous weight loss and gym based reality shows, each with it’s own unique spin on fitness. Some are about dropping incredible amounts of weight a la’ The Biggest Loser, others focus on the gym owners romantic relationships, and some are about brides looking to get fit before the big day.
And now we have Wicked Fit on the Style Network to add to the mix. But this training show has a totally different spin. Kaytie Boyd is a former beauty pageant queen, who has opened a women’s only boutique gym – called More >
So here we are again, in the 12th season of NBC’s wildly successful weight loss “reality” show, The Biggest Loser, aka the proverbial thorn in my side.
As you probably know, last season two new trainers were added to the Loser lineup, Brett Hoebel – a career trainer and Cara Castronuova – a boxer/model-turned-trainer, to change things up and soften the blow from Jillian’s departure.
I wasn’t a fan of Brett and Cara, and needless to say, neither was America. The two newbies aren’t back this season, but instead, two more new faces appear alongside the old stalwart Bob Harper.
And guess who More >
