High-intensity cardio and fun workouts, like hiking, helped Fallon lose the weight.


EP028: You Have to Love Yourself No Matter What Size You Are with Fallon Mercedes

Even though the extra weight gave Trainer Fallon beautiful curves, the unhealthy eating left her hormone levels a mess. The producers made her wear a sports bra and tight shorts throughout the episode, which she says was uncomfortable in front of the cameras. The relationship between her and her client, JD, started out as fun and adventurous but after overhearing JD complain to the show’s producers about her training style she started to notice other cracks in their working relationship. Fallon says JD would say he couldn’t make the workouts and then would post pictures of burgers and beers. She felt let down since she was only there to help him. This is the first episode of the Fit to Fat to Fit show where the client left before the end of the experiment, will it be the last?
