Fit to Fat to Fit is a reality TV series that premiered on Lifetime in 2016. The show features pairs of personal trainers who are dedicated to helping their clients lose weight, but with a unique twist. In order to better understand the challenges their clients face, the trainers undergo a radical transformation themselves, gaining a significant amount of weight before starting their own fitness journey.

The show follows the personal trainers as they go through a rigorous process of gaining weight over a four-month period. During this time, they are required to eat unhealthy foods and avoid exercise in order to put on the extra pounds. This is a challenging experience for the trainers, who are used to promoting healthy eating and exercise to their clients.

Once they have gained the weight, the trainers are matched with a client who has a similar body type and fitness goals. Together, they embark on a 16-week fitness journey designed to help the client lose weight and build muscle. The trainers must use their knowledge and experience to create a customized workout and nutrition plan that will help their client achieve their goals in a healthy and sustainable way.

Throughout the series, viewers see the trainers and clients working together to overcome obstacles and achieve their fitness goals. The trainers draw on their own experiences of gaining weight to empathize with their clients and understand the struggles they face. This creates a powerful connection between the trainers and clients, setting the stage for some incredible transformations.

The show features three pairs of trainers and clients, each with their own unique stories and challenges. One pair features Parneille Walker, a personal trainer who gained 70 pounds, and his client, who is dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic injury. Another pair features Adonis Hill, who gained 70 pounds, and his client, who is struggling to lose weight after having a baby. The third pair features Alissa Campbell, who gained 60 pounds, and her client, who is dealing with emotional eating and body image issues.

The series is a powerful reminder of the importance of empathy and understanding in the personal training industry. By experiencing the challenges of gaining weight firsthand, the trainers gain a new perspective on the struggles their clients face. This helps them create more realistic and effective fitness plans that take into account the unique circumstances of each client.

Fit to Fat to Fit is an emotional and inspiring series that showcases the power of determination, hard work, and empathy. It's a must-watch for anyone who is struggling with weight loss or wants to gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by those on the journey to better health.
