Fitness Trainer Gets A “G” For Grueling

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One fanatical fitness trainer has a ra-ra-rally cry for America’s lazy lifestyle.

On CMT’s latest reality show, I Want to Look Like a High School Cheerleader Again, Dallas Cowboys fitness guru Jay Johnson whips 10 former pom-pom princesses back into shouting shape, and the former Army Drill Sergeant says every soft-stomached American could benefit from his gut-busting strategy.

Johnson says, “No one accidentally gets in shape. We think that you can just throw money at something and expect it to change, but not here. I’m changing these girls’ mentality and approach to life. I’m doing Jedi mind tricks out here.”

The show’s cheering contestants are put through a rigorous regimen, with everything from weight training to hay lifting to what Johnson calls, “old school, caveman, U.S. Army workouts.”

And pound-dropping programs like The Biggest Loser stand no chubby chance against Johnson’s wild workouts.

Johnson says, “These shows take the Dr. Phil approach, but we’re not coddling them. I’m not the Good Humor ice-cream salesman. I’m the guy who’s going to light the fire under your butt.”

The cheerleading challenge premieres this Saturday (Oct. 6) on CMT.
