About this Article

For weeks now we've been talking to the contestants about the Fittest Loser Challenge. We've heard about their love/hate relationship with a variety of foods, the stress they face balancing work, diet, exercise and family and we know their trainers are tough. But this week we're turning the tables and instead of talking about themselves, we asked them to talk about the people behind the scenes.
