Former ‘Biggest Loser’ Trainer Kim Lyons talks about a No-Excuse Approach to a Healthier You


If you haven’t heard of personal trainer Kim Lyons you must have been living under a rock. She is the former trainer on The Biggest Loser on NBC.

Here is a little look into her world:

She become very popular when she became trainer on The Biggest Loser. Then, when she stopped being on there, people were wondering what had happened and when she would come back.


Asked, if she missed doing the show and what she took away from her time there, she responded:

There are things I miss about The Biggest Loser like being able to inspire millions of people every week by helping my team reach their personal goals. But I don’t miss the craziness and unrealistic hours of training every day. There were times when I just wanted to hug my team and tell them to go let their bodies recover for the day. Instead, we had to head back into the gym and pound out hours and hours of workouts. It’s really not the best way to lose weight and keep it off! In the first few years of the show, it was more about the weight loss and less about the game play and the drama. Now it’s all drama and game play. I love that it shows people how hard you can push yourself and what you can do when you have 100 percent dedication, but it is far from realistic, and it’s really hard for the contestants to maintain their success after they return home. That part of it is always hard for me. (source)
