There's a show, sort of like The Biggest Loser, I was watching, where I really felt the trainers were pushing 400+ pound people too hard. I thought it would be a cool turnaround if, one morning, they surprised the trainers by strapping 250 pounds in weights on them, and making them go through the routines with their clients like that.
I really understand why he did it. I don't know if I necessarily agree with what he did, but it's his body—he can do whatever the heck he wants with it.
One of the reasons I was starting to look into becoming a personal trainer was because I feel I would be able to relate to people a bit more (plus I would love to help people). I also thought that people might want a trainer who had been where they were at one point.
