I cannot overstate my hatred of <em>The Biggest Loser</em> enough. My reasons are simple: The show is built around extremism; many featured trainers are downright abusive; and the long term impact of the show subjects participants and viewers to physical and mental damage that can permanently hinder their efforts to lose weight and live a healthier life. In every single way, it presents a broken and incorrect vision of weight loss.

There are incredible benefits to in-person training, which allows real time communication and ability to make adjustments on the fly. Still, it has its drawbacks. The best of the best may be outside of your budget. You will fight for prime appointment times. Missed sessions and cancellation fees cost money, momentum and progress. The trainer you want to work with may live in a different city or country than you.
