These children also go through a mental transformation during their time with the trainers. Viewers will see how the teens begin to rapidly mature and start standing on their own two feet. The show experience helps many see for the first time that they must take charge of their life, or they will always struggle.

Each episode concludes with a look into the teen’s life after they’ve been in college for a few months. Viewers will see if they’ve kept the weight off and how they are managing their diets. One of the most encouraging elements of the conclusion is how their family reacts to seeing a transformed child after an intense summer of life changing activity.
