I haven’t watched The Biggest Loser in several years because it just got to be too much for me. The drama, the product placement, the crazy (unsafe, in my mind) workouts, etc. And don’t even get me started on some of the ridiculous trainer choices!
I was a little surprised when Jillian Michaels announced she is coming back to the show for the new season since I thought I had read somewhere that she left because of all the drama. (but my google search turns up nothing, so perhaps I made that up in my crazy mind!)
Anyway, I will most likely watch the new season because I am very curious to see how her training methods might be different now that she is a mommy. In the past, she was always hardcore and “no excuses’ type of person. It reminded me of how I was before I had kids. I didn’t care if you were up all night with your babies, you had better be in my AM bootcamp class the next day or else you were not serious about your fitness!! (yes, I actually said that to clients! Don’t worry, karma has come back for me!)
The new season will also feature teens—which I’m not so sure is a great idea. So much of life now is out there in the media, do we really need to put media focus on overweight young adults?
I’d love to know your thoughts! Are you going to watch?
Do you think Jillian will be “softer”?
Is featuring overweight teens a good or bad idea?
