Week three of Biggest Loser is when people on the show really start to “get it.” Everyone starts to figure out their workouts, their diets, and generally what is working for them. But we still don’t know what the deal is with these new trainers. They are finally revealed!
Cara Castronuova was taught to box at the age of five by her father. She has also been boxing competitively since the age of 20, winning two Golden Gloves and at one point was ranked number two in the country! She brings that fighting spirit to the Biggest Loser and hopes to help the contestants with their battle against obesity.
Brett Hoebel has been in the fitness industry for nearly 20 years. He has studied a wide range of martial arts from capoeira to muay thai, as well as holding a degree in science with double majors of biology and psychology. He believes there is a science to everything and wishes to bring this to the contestants and really shape their formula for weight loss. (more…)
Come bathing suit season, we all yearn to wake up one morning with washboard abs. To trim and tone your midsection, it takes more than the Flat Belly Diet to seek the six-pack you’ve always wanted.
Whether you’re trying to build muscle and reduce belly fat for health related-reasons, or simply so you can wear a bikini at the beach in six months, we looked into some of the latest and greatest ways you can tone your abs and seek better muscle definition.
What do you get when you combine stunning good looks with international health and wellness expertise? None other than Brett Hoebel. Although he’s best known as the creator of RevAbs, you may also know him as the mastermind behind the rockin’ body of Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova. Hoebel was also co-star of the fitness reality show Fit Family on the Discovery Channel. Numerous other TV appearances on The View, the Today Show and Good Morning America have given us an opportunity to grow more familiar with his work and philosophy. Hoebel’s mind-body approach to wellness stems from his extensive education in health sciences and his martial arts training. Impressed? Me too, and so is everyone else. Rumor has it that Brett Hoebel may be replacing much-loved Jillian Michaels as Biggest Loser trainer for season 11. We’ll all miss Jillian, but who can resist watching him each week?
If you’re resolving to lose weight, you’re probably researching the best diets and which is right for you. A quick way to determine that is to use our diet finder, which will match your budget, goals and lifestyle with the weight loss plan that best suits your needs.
Or, you can take a look at this list of must-watch diets for 2011. These are the ones you’ll no doubt hear your co-workers, aunts and best friends raving or complaining about in the new year. Some are a bit faddish and lend themselves to yo-yo dieting, others have solid foundations that set you up for success this year and for more to come.
This one broke out on the scene with the book’s release in November 2010 on Dr. Phil. Dr. Mike Moreno wrote the book to help people kick-start their weight loss, re-learn how to eat via meal plans and 17-minutes a day worth of exercise, and then give them the information they need for on-going maintenance. It’s a cycled way of eating that keeps the metabolism from getting bored and settling in to a status quo.
In November 2010, Weight Watchers unveiled the most significant change to its program in 13 years. Using the latest in nutritional science along with Weight Watchers’ nearly 50 years of expertise, the new approach allows for clients to make healthier, more satisfying choices. The new PointsPlus calculation includes protein, fiber, fat and carbs, instead of just fiber, fat and calories.
The Biggest Loser trainer is on her way out of primetime, with season 11 being her last, but it is in no way her swan song. If anything, this is just her prelude. Men and women alike clamor to reap the benefits of her fitness empire that you’ll no doubt hear someone tell you that they’re using her fitness DVDs, using her online weight loss plan, or reading her books and cooking her recipes.

Brett Hoebel Fired from Biggest Loser in Week 14
CONFIRMED! Brett Hoebel is the new trainer!
Could Brett Hoebel be the next trainer on The Biggest Loser?
Who is he? Brett Hoebel is a celebrity trainer with the looks and skills that we think make him a possible candidate to be the one of the mystery Biggest Loser trainers to appear on season 11. He recently discussed the strategies he used with Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova with bodybuilding.com. “It’s the cross-training that’s key. It doesn’t let your body adapt to one stimulus too much and it keeps your workouts exciting.”
You may recognize Brett from the Discovery Channel show Fit Family, or from one of his many other TV appearances like The View, Good Morning America and the Today Show. He’s also the creator of RevAbs, a workout and diet plan the promises to give you a toned body in as little as 90 days. These workouts combine elements of Afro-Brazilian Capoeira and Muay Thai kickboxing with Western strength training.
