A trainer like that could never make it. I remember when an episode aired of a 450lb man was taken on as a new client.
First thing the trainer did was have him step out of the car and run to the gym.
A man who hadn’t more than walked fast to his fridge in 30 years shouldn’t be running. Period.
The ensuing Bootcamp style workout continually pushed the client past his limits. If a regular trainer had done so, they would have been liable for a lawsuit the moment it happened.
The only reason they are able to get unreal results is because they meet with the trainer almost every day for a year, dietitian, nutritionist, doctors, as well as a chef to cook their meals.
By the end of the show they could be working as long as 4 hours a day.
Unreal because its on TV but people dont realize that.
