Sweat Inc


I'll be the first to admit that I don't watch a lot of television shows but when my sister told me about this new Shark Tank style show hosted by Jillian Michaels I was intrigued. I certainly do like Shark Tank!

The show is called Sweat inc and it is a combination of Shark Tank, Chopped, and The Biggest Loser.

The show starts off with three contestants/entrepreneurs. They have all invented some type of fitness product/business.  The ones that were featured on the episode I watched were:

Jump life trampoline workout $28 per class




Omni Ball $60



Core Sticks $1195


Each entrepreneur pitches his/her product to Jillian and her team of judges. They are looking for the person who has the best product suited for the masses which yields the best weight loss results.   The first round was based on ease of use. Jillian thought the Core Sticks were too complicated  and she didn't like the high price point so she had no problem with "Chopping" that product from the competition.   Jillian is just as tough on this program as she was on The Biggest Loser.

So now there are two entrepreneurs left. Here is where they really put the products to the test. They set up two group studies. Half the people are learning to workout with the Omni Balls and the other half are learning to workout with the Jump life trampoline. Then they switch. Once both groups learn how to use each product there is an "open gym" where they go pick which product they like better. It ended up being about half and half but the scale was ever so slightly tipped to the Omni Balls.

The last thing the entrepreneurs were judged on was the effectiveness of the product.  Each entrepreneur had a guy and a girl train with them for a specific period of time. Then at the end of the time frame they had to weigh in and calculate percentage of body weight loss. In the end, The inventor of the Omni Balls won the competition.  

I really liked the Jump Life and I could see that taking off as a class at a gym.  I could tell Jillian really liked the idea too except that the entrepreneur behind the product did not have good management skills. Jillian wanted her to market some children's class and to contact some mommy bloggers and she kept making up excuses why she hadn't done it.  I liked her product but lost a bit of respect for her once she kept putting off the tasks that Jillian gave her.      

Have you seen this program?     If so, what do you think of it?
