The only boxing I have experienced in real life is the boxing on Wii, which I enjoy. In terms of prize fights or anything...yeah, I'm not interested in people hitting each other either. I actually find the workout segments on BL rather boring as well. Yet another reason why I wish they devoted more time to food choices etc.
I would also like to see the contestants grocery shop for themselves, learn to read labels and make their own meals. To me that is the hardest part of a diet/lifestyle change yet the one that will help you tremendously with losing weight and making it a permanent change. Even if they only had to make one meal a day or even one meal a week, it is a step in the right direction. The previous season's contestants let Michael do all the cooking for them and looked who won that season.
I'm just gonna say one thing.
I HATE the new trainers style of workout. BOXING IS ALL THEY DO. I wouldn't mind if they changed it up a bit. They don't though. Also its like they get mad if the contestants DON'T want to box. I'll tell you right now I think boxing is a decent sport however, I much prefer a running work out.
It is going to be intersting to see how the whole season turns out. Who wins, who keeps it off, etc. There are changes I'd like to see happen with next season but I doubt they will happen.....b/c of ratings.
I have to say....yes, running is great for weight loss but I lost my weight before I started running. I lost it from doing something different daily. Then after I kept it off a year I trained and ran for a half marathon....gained 5 lbs. Then the following year I trained and ran half marathon and gained another 5 lbs. I haven't been able to get it off...running, eating healthy, etc. Now I'm up 20lbs total. It's a mental thing at this point...I care but I don't care. My stress is through the roof which isn't helping at all. It's something that I have to battle and overcome.
All this to say is that this is something these contestants will deal with all their lives. It isn't easy. I just hope they really learn as much as possible while on the ranch so they can be a better success at home.
