‘Biggest Loser’ Trainers Throw Down In The Gym

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Biggest Loser trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels get pretty competitive in the gym – and their trainees pay the price!

Harper and Michaels are the tough trainers on The Biggest Loser: Couples, and they say that working out side-by-side leads to intense sessions in the gym for the contestants they coach.

Harper explains, “When Jill and I are in the gym together, each with one of our contestants, it’s like being in a dance-off. She makes her contestant do something, and I’m like, ‘Okay, mine can do that too. We’ll do that and raise you this!’ It’s great because everyone is motivated.”

Michaels adds, “In the gym, Bob means business!”

The trainers have no problem pitting the contestants against one another, but Michaels admits she’d never try to challenge Harper to a workout herself.

She says, “Are you kidding me? Bob is a triathlete! One time, I trained with him in Australia by running 20 kilometers and I thought, ‘He’s gonna kill me!’”

The Biggest Loser: Couples live finale airs April 15 on NBC.
