Personal Trainer Gains Five Stone Just So He Can Lose It Alongside His Client

We all love a good gym transformation story - mainly just to look at the pictures, really. But it's very rare that one of these stories begins with someone purposely piling on weight.

As many of you are probably aware, it's often best to work out with a partner so they can spot you and motivate you. It also helps if you're at the same fitness levels.

A brand new TV show, Fit To Fat To Fit, shows personal trainers helping clients to reach their target goals. However, unlike any normal weight-loss program, the personal trainers pile on masses of weight so that they can lose it with the contestants.

One of the trainers, Adonis Hill, gained a massive five stone in three months so his target weight loss would match his client's.

#bbaResults #tbt #2015 All In One Year from left to right/top to bottom! Wtf was I thinking right? And Why? I'll tell you Why! Let's start by saying: "Life is crazy af"! But I can tell you this one thing for sure ... An important part of living a happy and fulfilling life includes being part of a close-knit community where you can share, help and support people you care about. It also includes being kind to strangers, and learning to replace envy and anger with understanding and empathy. It's all about HELPING those in need "BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY" (MX voice) I can't front ...as a trainer it's easy to get all wrapped up in fixing your own body that you forget about helping others reach their goals. For me, when I say goals ... Goals are way past just the physical. And while its important to put yourself first, its even more important to help others whenever you can. Being generous isn't even always about altruism - becoming more generous and compassionate will have real tangible benefits in your own life. My life is so poppin because I actually give a damn about other people.... I'm telling you it's a high like no other. You gotta try this approach to life sometime #PuffPuffGive (source: KeepInspiring) #WeAreALLInThis2gether _______________________________________ I don't want to live in the kind of world where we don't look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit. -Charles de Lint #ButImGOINGtoChangeYourMindset1st #MentalTrainingBeforePhysicalTraining #OnlyALifeLivedForOthersIsALifeWorthwhile YOUR TURN!

According to BuzzFeed, he was told by doctors to stop putting on weight because his blood pressure was rising to a dangerously high peak. He also has a problem with horrendously long Instagram captions, but I won't hold that against him.

Although it's mightily impressive how he managed to lose all that weight, as a lover of food and the proud owner of a pot belly, I'm far more interested in how he gained the pounds. What fatty goodness was he munching on?

If the aim of the show was to simply gain five stone, I'm sure many of us could smash that.
