Chalene Johnson was told to lose weight

Although I'm sure part of her reason for filming this was to promote her book, I found this interesting. And disturbing. And I can't help but wonder which program she is talking about, because I can't ever remember her looking weak.

Wow...just wow. I'm assuming she was talking about Beachbody? That is really a shame because Chalene is pretty awesome and thank goodness she kept her upbeat perky attitude.

I assumed she meant Beachbody. And I wondered if she was talking about PiYo.

I have never done any of her workouts and know nothing much about her but wow....to ditto what Kate said, just wow. This is simultaneously heartbreaking, infuriating, and sort of validating for those times we've all been in a situation that left us ashamed, feeling broken, like an imposter, and embarrassed. We're never alone, and you just never know what someone is going through.

Now I too want to know what program it was (and what is her book about?). Thank you much for sharing. I just want to hug her right now!

Well, she weighed more before Beachbody (and when she was a background exerciser in the Weight Watchers 'spooky fingers' video). So maybe it was before Turbo Jam's release? I can't imagine it was after that since she was such a bestseller for Beachbody with a devoted following (Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, Chalene Extreme, PiYo).

Regardless, to me the most disturbing part by far was speaking to her husband... what the what?!?

wow, it just shows that societal expectations for women's bodies are not just unrealistic but unhealthy.

The fitness 'style' these days for men and women in that business is to look super 'cut' where you can see every muscle fiber. I find it an ugly look, like from an anatomy class or something.

I was thinking it was before turbo jam, too. I did turbo kick workouts before turbo jam, so the first time I did a turbo jam workout I thought she looked really skinny (too skinny). Personally, I think she looks better in CLX. She looks strong and fit in CLX.

She looks great in this video- I love her hair! I would love to read her book because I think she is such an encouraging trainer.

If she feels so strongly about this, why is this video Unlisted?

I remember her discussing the same thing in an older Facebook video. I'm positive she is talking about Beachbody.
