Amy’s Workout Regime

CoachMeFit Birmingham Owner, Derek DiGiovanni, guides Amy through one of her workouts

“Biggest Loser” contestants Amy and Shellay are clients at the CoachMeFit studio in Birmingham, MI.  They work out with the owners of the studio, Derek and Kerrie DiGiovanni.

“Biggest Loser” airs Tuesday’s at 8:00pm on NBC.

“I’ll never go back to that life,” says a determined Amy referring to the years when she never, ever exercised, dieted off and on, and gained weight year after year. “I knew very little about the Biggest Loser right up to the day I tried out for the show. I did know that if I was ever going to change my life, this was my chance.”

Living on the Biggest Loser’s ranch where she learned the importance of exercise and how to eat right transformed Amy. By Tuesday’s show Amy had lost 58 pounds — the equivalent of 24% of her body weight. And the hard work continues. At CoachMeFit she warms up, powers through a 45 – 60 minute cardio workout on a combination of elliptical, treadmill and bike and then completes a 45 – 50 minute weight circuit and cools down. She experiences some muscle soreness after weight training, but it doesn’t bother her. “It’s a sign I worked hard.” The weight training builds muscle tone to add firmness to her smaller shape. The rest of her training is on her own in the form of gym workouts and hours of walking.

Training with Derek or Kerrie helps Amy feel grounded and committed. Like her workouts at the Biggest Loser ranch, the sessions are serious business. Her trainers know that Amy is in it to win.
