Anna Kournikova Named Newest Trainer on “The Biggest Loser”

NBC’s popular tv show that features extreme weight-loss, “The Biggest Loser” announced their newest female trainer. Jillian Michaels had been a trainer on the show but left the show to start a family. Many women in the fitness industry were considered for the trainer spot. I know from speaking with a few competitors that they went through multiple rounds of casting for the position. Instead of hiring a “real trainer” they went with a popular female in the world of sports. Anna Kournikova, professional tennis player, will be the newest “Biggest Loser” trainer.

There’s no disputing that the Russian-born athlete is cute but is she fit to train others? Many people don’t think so on the interwebs. What do you think?


I am officially the new trainer on The Biggest Loser on NBC!!!!

I can’t wait to get started on the show and to share everything that I have learned throughout my years as a professional athlete, and I really feel like this is going to be the perfect fit! Living a healthy lifestyle has always been such a huge part of me, and I am beyond excited to get to work!

I will have so much more to share with you guys once we get started on this really cool adventure!

Stay tuned for more to come!
