The Biggest Loser Season 12 returned this week minus hardcore trainer Jillian Michaels. I went into the show trying to keep an open mind about new trainer An-nah K. Let’s be honest, no one will replace Jillian…
Anna K. was a professional athlete; not many can say that, right? I respect her athletic ability and how she demonstrates that female athletes are beautiful. Plus, I wouldn’t mind looking like her either. What?
I was pleasantly surprised by her training debut (I had pretty low expectations). However, inexperience training an obese population shows. Your knowledge base, instruction, and motivational strategies must be on point when coaching individuals that have been predominately sedentary their whole lives.
Regular readers had to know I’d be a fan of D-train (yes, I have a pet name for him).
I dig his training philosophy, “…to help people transform their minds, bodies and souls. His regimen focuses on weight loss, nutrition, strength training and cardiovascular exercise…”
I was blown away by his poise (read: sculpted physique), command in the gym, and optimistic viewpoint. He demanded all-out-effort in the gym, “Let go of my treadmill!” kicking one individual out of the gym to regain his focus and told his group to “celebrate your weight loss accomplishments”.
Now, don’t be concerned that my crush is becoming a full blown obsession, Coach is still number 1 in my books.
