Weighing in at 651 pounds, James, a 25 year old former football player from Fort Worth, Texas is the most obese person that trainer Chris Powell has ever worked with.
According to ABC, during his senior year of high school, James got injured and could no longer play football. He has been described as “an athlete-turned-geek” because he excelled in the information technology industry. With his new life in the office he put in long hours behind a desk becoming very inactive. During late night work sessions, James says he saw his weight skyrocket as he indulged in fast food.
Now, not only does James want to lose weight to become a healthier individual, but he also wants to shed the extra pounds to see his mom happy again. James says that his mother has had a lot of loss in her life and he doesn’t want her to have any more pain. Imagining his future, James would like to one day have a wife and children and live a long, healthy life.
With lots of intense, physical, emotion and mental work ahead of him, can James reach his goal weight and find success and happiness in his life? Tune in to tonight’s episode to find out!
