Fat to Fit
Tramell gained 66 pounds, and now weighs 247. He has a belly but otherwise looks pretty good. Johnny is starting at 299 and Jason is starting at 294. They each want to lose 80 pounds. Tramell’s first step is to assess them with a simple workout that analyzes their movement. Wow, this trainer is smart. He is also encouraging them to take breaks when they are clearly dizzy, which is better than some of the trainers we have seen. Johnny and Jason are really out of shape and don’t see how they’ll get better.
The next day, they have a real first workout: an obstacle course around a track! Tramell paraphrases RuPaul by saying “if you can’t motivate yourself, how the hell you gonna motivate somebody else? Can I get an amen?” (I am also paraphrasing Tramell.) He struggled but finished the workout, as did his clients. Jason and Johnny do a good job of cheering each other on. Hopefully they can turn their codependence into a positive encouragement of each other.
They are happily going along losing weight for a little while, then all of a sudden all three of them start cheating on their diets at the same time. Tramell decides to step back a bit and let Johnny and Jason push each other. Hopefully this works!
