In the U.S., Pavelka was the featured trainer on Lifetime's "DietTribe," and hosted a series of exercise programs on OWN called "Wake-Up Workout with Gaiam." A native of Corpus Christi, Texas and a former professional bodybuilder, Pavelka's passion for fitness inspired him to become a trainer and help others embrace health and wellness. In his free time, he is also the ambassador of HOOP (Helping Overcome Obesity Problems), a U.K.-based organization dedicated to helping those struggling with the issues surrounding weight management and obesity.

Jennifer Widerstrom is a top fitness expert committed to helping people live their best lives through health and fitness. Formerly a star of the NBC series "American Gladiators," she is the lead female trainer for InterContinental Hotel Group's new "Even" wellness line and has been a life coach for MSN.com and a fitness expert for Fitbie.com. She is also a women's health expert who has been featured on "Access Hollywood Live" and in 3V's 30 Second Fitness Shorts.

The Lisle, Ill., native is very experienced in guiding people through the dramatic changes that take place - both physically and emotionally - while losing weight. In her free time, Widerstrom has volunteered at orphanages and schools in Rwanda, Kenya and Malawi, Africa, helping children find self-confidence through sport and play. She has also supported the armed forces, going on Goodwill Military Tours for troops stationed in Kuwait, Iraq, southwest Asia and in Korea's Green Zone.
