EP022: Being Self-Righteous and Judgmental Without Realizing It, with Steve, Bonnie and Tasha

You are not your looks; you are not your weight.

Focusing on clients’ needs is something that has always been important to the trainer, Steve Pfiester. Even during his early days of training, he recognized it was necessary to understand all aspects of physical therapy in order to be the best trainer he could be. His recent Fit to Fat to Fit experience is another example of how he gives of himself to benefit his clients, both physically and mentally. After gaining 45 pounds for the show, Steve found himself struggling to perform his own Boot Camp workout. He realized he may have been judgmental before this journey because he could see people’s potential but never understood why they didn’t want to get in shape. Drew and Lynn are joined by Steve’s wife, Bonnie and Tasha Reiss-Cruzz, the client from the Fit to Fat to Fit TV show.
