There now forms a stronger movement to be and stay healthy. People are now becoming more aware and careful of their physiques, causing better fitness gadgets and newest health supplements to emerge and for TV stations to take action.

The new awareness has created fitness and weight loss reality shows, though the TV industry has been producing similar programs ever since. We have now transitioned from the instructional programs that were either too easy or too distracting that we can’t seem to follow to shows featuring other people’s struggle to become a healthier version of themselves.

These shows may not teach us how to do the exercises ourselves, but more than the instruction, we receive inspiration as these TV programs emotionally sell to us. Here are seven fitness programs I recommend.

1. The Biggest Loser

The audience has responded positively to the program making it last twelve seasons and counting in the United States, and producing international spin-offs in various countries across the planet.

Whoever loses the most weight is, of course, hailed as The Biggest Loser.

2. Strong

Showcasing ten teams of handsome personal trainers and overweight female contestants competing for up to half a million in cash prize, Strong is another fitness challenge show from NBC with Sylvester Stallone as its executive producer. Aside from how the partners work hand-in-hand each episode making the ladies lose weight, the show receives intrigues after being co-produced by The Biggest Loser’s creator, Dave Broome.

What makes the show unique among the other weight loss reality programs is having the personal trainers compete along with their trainee against the other pairs to avoid getting eliminated at the end of every week.
