The Biggest Loser

My friend Michael and I have a really fun running email exchange (it sometimes mutates to holiday greetings, sympathy cards, text messages, ESP ... you get the picture) in which we adopt the voice of Trainer Bob and direct a message to Suzy.

It usually goes something like:

"Dear Suzy,

You live in Seattle and it rains a lot there. How do you expect to share your umbrella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh if you're too fat to stand beneath it yourself?



If you watch The Biggest Loser, and I will admit I only watched the first season and then caught the highlights of Season Two, which featured said Suzy, but from time to time I catch it only because I think Trainer Bob is smoking as well as a really great guy and if I'm going to be a non-Nazi pilates instructor I think I must work on my reformer-side manner because I tend to want to say things like, "Why can't you fucking get your pelvis stable, Gah?!" OK, just kidding, I really don't ever say that aloud and really I'm only fishing for explanations here. I really just watch it because TB is hott.

Anyhoodle, now that I have DirecTV and can DVR it, I'm totally down with watching the new season.

Did you hear his buzzword last night? Functional Training. It's funny because I was having a marathon telephone chat with MSJ and we were discussing it prior to it airing and I was telling her about FT and how it was the rage right now. I am doing an FT class once each week and wish I could do more. I love it. I'm also think it would be fun to organize an FT class 3 mornings a week but so far two things allude me: 1.) an instructor and 2.) people who are willing to commit to a 6 a.m. workout.
