Motivational and Inspirational Quotes from The Biggest Loser – Season 13 Week #6

Here are the Top Inspirational and Motivational Quotes from this week’s episode of The Biggest Loser

Last week I had to rant just a little. My second rant was that the cast this season is boring. Well, they still are. They aren’t good for very many quotes. Hopefully things will get better as the season progresses.

Now for the quotes

“This distain that she feels for herself is what the real culprit is.”

“Her weight has been holding her back from her life.”

This weight is holding you back for all of your dreams.”

“You can do anything that you put your mind to. But you have to put your mind to it.”

“I fell like I’m honestly rediscovering my life.

Four of those five quotes are from the trainers not the contestants. Let’s hope the cast starts to appreciate this opportunity that they’ve been given!

See you next week.

Inspirational and Motivational Quotes from The Biggest Loser – Season 13 Week #5

Here are the Top Motivational and Inspirational Quotes from NBC’s The Biggest Loser – Season 13 Episode #5

OK, time for two little rants.

First of all during this episode, Bob Harper took the contestants through a workout called Fran. Fran is a Cross-fit workout. I don’t like Cross-fit and here are my reasons. The Cross-fit exercises when performed properly are all perfectly fine exercises. The problem with Cross-fit is that rarely are the exercises done properly. The emphasis is on completing the exercises as fast a possible or completing as many reps as possible in a pre-determined amount of time.

That approach promotes poor technique. And poor technique with maximal effort is a recipe for injury. Cross fit workouts are very difficult and they require maximal effort. So technique will falter. I know that Cross-fit coaches will disagree with me, but I don’t care. They are wrong!

There is decades of research from credentialed, and respected educational institutions from around the world that offer scientific proof on how to exercise properly. There have been thousands, probably tens of thousands, of peer reviewed, double blind studies done that follow accepted research methodologies that offer proof on how to develop structured exercise protocols. We already know how many sets and reps to do, how much weight to lift, how long to rest between sets and at what speed to move durnig exercises to reach any fitness goal.

Cross-fit doesn’t follow any of this science. I don’t recommend it for anyone.

On a slightly different note. Bob Harper has been giving Dolvett a hard time about stealing workouts from him all season. Here’s the deal, you can get the Fran workout from Cross-fit online. He’s being hypocritical. He didn’t come up with Fran. Anybody can simply google it. The “great” American trainer didn’t even come up with his own workout. He got it from the web!

OK, rant #2

You’ll notice that the quotes from this weeks episode are scarce. That’s because there were very few good quotes. The cast this season is boring. None of them are very interesting. None of them really seem to be buying into the program. All of them seem really superficial, selfish and trivial.

Now maybe it will get better as they begin to experience what it feels like to really make positive changes in their lives. I hope so, because so far this is the worst cast in the history of the show.

Here are this weeks quotes

“I’ve never reached my goals.”

“I’m here to do things that have never been done before.”

“Let’s do some good stuff.”

“Lets’ do it.”

“I’ve learned to really enjoy whit it is that I’m doing.”

See you next week!

“You got this way in the kitchen, and you’ll get better in the kitchen.”

“Get out of your head; focus on yourself and nothing is impossible.”

“In order to fix my body I need to fix my mind.”

There weren’t a lot of great quotes during this weeks episode. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that it’s only the second week and the contestants have yet to truly understand the impact of the changes they are making. I’m anticipated this will change as the season progresses. Stay tuned.

See you next week

Biggest Loser Motivational and Inspirational Quotes – Marathon Episode

My first impression of The Biggest Loser having a Marathon, was that it is a ridiculously stupid idea.


The contestants on the show are all morbidly obese, they each have 50-200+ pounds to lose. They’ve been losing weight and exercising for about 12 weeks and now they are going to run a Marathon? It seems risky to their health and unsafe. But I have to admit, I changed my mind.

Bonnie who is 63 and due to have knee replacement surgery did not attempt the Marathon, which was a good choice.


Also they had a Doctor present and he pulled two other people from the Marathon to avoid any possible long term injury. Yet again another great choice.


So 12 of the 15 people finished a Marathon. All still with considerable weight to lose and with only 12 weeks of training to prepare. Their nutrition and exercise programs during that 12 weeks were weight loss specific and not Marathon specific. Yet they still did it.


What I took away from this show was that we are all capable of doing way more than we think we can. We place limits and restrictions on what we think we can accomplish, without any proof or evidence to support those limitations. Myself included.

Lesson Learned.

Here are the inspirational and motivational quotes from the Marathon episode of The Biggest Loser

“I’m coming home a brand new person. I feel so much better about myself, I’m stronger.”

“I’ve changed inside and out, so much.”

“I now believe in myself. Before I didn’t”

“I now have strength energy and desire.”

“Be a better version of yourself.”

“I’m dedicated to finish what I start.”

“I want to feel good and be healthy the rest of my days on this earth.”

“There’s no crazy gimmick, there’s no secret to it. It’s just hard work an exercise.”

“It’s just letting go of a lot of junk. It feels good to not have to carry all that extra baggage.”

“I can’t come in here and plan to change years of pain and anguish and hiding. But I can plant the seed and start breaking down all of the walls that we’ve build up over these years.”

“I’m gaining years back with every pound that I lose.”

“Anything worth getting, is worth fighting for.”

“We all have it in us, all we have to do is dig it out.”

“I’m happy and I’m healthy and I feel good.”

“A complete transformation of my mind. It’s awesome and a really good feeling.”

“Look at what I’ve done, the impossible….what a dream.”

The Marathon episode had a ton of great quotes.


Enjoy, see you next week for the finale.

How To Get Flat Abs By Xmas

I just received a newsletter from a former colleague with the following subject line; “Flat abs for Xmas”. This type of marketing is typical fitness industry stuff. Over-hyped, unrealistic promises that prey on your emotional triggers.

 I’m sick of it. Let’s get real!

First of all it is probably impossible for you to have flat abs by Christmas. This Newsletter was sent out on December 1st, so you’d only have 24 days to get your flat abs. To get flat abs you’ll need to get very lean. And while exercise is a vital component you’d have to follow a very strict diet to get flat abs. If you’re following a very strict diet you can expect to lose a max of 1-2 pounds per week. So in four weeks you’ll lose about 4-8 pounds.

If you are more than 4-8 pounds away from flat abs you won’t reach your goal in time for Christmas.

Second, if you’ve got to lose more than 8 pounds to get your flat abs, are you really going to go on an extremely strict diet the 3-4 weeks before Christmas? You have to set realistic, attainable goals. Otherwise you’ll set yourself up for failure. If you fail enough times, you’ll simply give up and stop trying. And when you stop trying, you’ll never reach your goals.

I want you to be successful. I want you to reach your goals. I will help to set you up for success.

Third and most important, is having flat abs really your top priority when it comes to your health, fitness and nutrition? If it is then I’m not interested in helping you. Shoot me and email and I’ll get you in touch with the trainer who promises “flat abs for Xmas.”

When your priorities are rooted in your superficial appearance you are setting yourself up for failure. Because you’re never going to be happy with what you see in the mirror.

The changes that will happen to your body are the by-product (or side effect), of genuine good health and wellness. And that change starts in your mind. If you want to improve your health, you’ll need to change the way that you think about yourself, food, and movement (exercise). When you change your mind, your way of thinking, then you’ll like what you see in the mirror.

Think about it this way. If you don’t think that you’re worthy or deserving of good health, why would you even begin to engage in habits or activities that would lead to improved health?

If you “hate” exercise, do you think that you’ll be successful at it? Have you ever been successful at anything that you hate to do? So to be successful you have to change your mind, change the way you think and feel about exercise. Now this is a process, a journey, there isn’t a switch that you can hit that will cause you to love to exercise when you currently hate it.

But I can show you how.

If you think of food that is bad for your health and in direct opposition to your goals as a “treat” or “reward”, then you need to change your mind. Change your relationship with food. Start to think of food that nourishes your body and improves your health as the reward.

Again this is a process, and a journey. And the destination is good health! It might take longer than 3-4 weeks to get there but it’s worth it.

And unlike the misleading, unrealistic goal of flat abs in 3 weeks, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and understanding of how to maintain your good health for the rest of your life.

Now for a fun little task. In the comment section below create a list of 5-10 health, fitness, and wellness goals that you have. The list must include “Flat Abs”. Then rank them in order of importance to you…

Enjoy….and Have a Merry Christmas
(Flat abs, or not…)
