By Wendy Grace, Trainer and Co-Owner, Mission Fitness CenterThere have been several seasons of the ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ TV shows, featuring celebrity trainer Chris Powell, and, sometimes, his wife, Heidi. One of my clients is a fan of the show, and she asked me what I thought. After talking to her, watching an episode, and doing some online research, I’d say there are things to learn from this well-intentioned program, but I also have some concerns.
The number 1 excuse for not working out is time! Don't think you have time? I'm going to show you that you do. Stay with me on this now...you're watching your favourite 1-hour show on TV. During EVERY commercial break I want you to do this...
1. 10 jumping jacks
2. 10 squats
3. 10 push-ups
4. 10 crunches
6. Once you have done this twice and the commercials are still running then plank until the show comes back on. Do this during every commercial break. By the time your show is done you have completed a 13-14 minute workout.
so i have been pondering and waiting and looking and trying to figure out what i can do with my life. I love what I do and I love hosting. So decided to put these 2 together. I need to get some people involved , camara crew, producer, editor, etC.. I have the fitness part down. but its the filming part ineed help with.. Now this is not going to be a paid venture even though i hope one day it will be. I need to shoot a PILOT. Then I can submit to TV producers and go from there. I was really hoping to get students who need experience or someone who is bored and needs a project.
