Plot Synopsis

FIT TO FAT TO FIT is a one-hour reality series that follows 10 personal fitness trainers from across the United States as they undertake the most extreme weight-loss experiment ever: by forcing themselves to gain weight, they aim to better understand the struggles of their obese clients as they lose the weight together. During the weight gain process, these elite trainers document the radical effects of watching their healthy bodies deteriorate. Everything from their mental stability and physical energy to their personal relationships are challenged. After four months of gaining weight under medical supervision, each trainer rejoins their client and together they begin a four-month transformation from fat to fit. At the end, there is a final check-in to reveal whether or not each trainer and client reached their weight loss goals. Each 60-minute episode features a different trainer/client combination, including: trainer JJ Peterson and client Ray Stewart; trainer Steve Pfiester and client Tasha Reiss Cruz; and more.
On Tuesday, March 15, 2016 from 9-11pm ET/PT, A&E premiered the season finale of FIT TO FAT TO FIT, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first new episode (9pm), Seth, a yoga instructor and gym owner in South Florida, is destroying his body in order to get his client Dave to change his unhealthy ways. Dave, a 380 pound IT specialist and Army veteran has all but given up on himself and his weight. Seth does everything he can to inspire Dave to put aside his love for unhealthy food to save his own life. Then, in the season finale (10pm), Tramell, a young bodybuilder and business owner has one of the best bodies in the country. Jason and Johnny, nicknamed "salty and sweet" enable each other with poor eating and exercise habits. By gaining 60 pounds, Tramell is looking to hold this soon-to-be-married couple accountable for their weight loss while making them accountable to each other.
