BATON ROUGE,LA (NBC33) — James Henry with the green team writes;
It's hard to believe that we only have a little over a week left of Losing it in Louisiana, but I feel I am ready to take all of the things I have learned from Erik over these past six months and do them on my own. I know that it will be difficult, but at this point Erik's voice is so ingrained in my head that it will be like he is still there telling me to "power through it", laughing at my pain, and sharing in my triumphs. Erik has pushed me far beyond what I thought I was capable of, and there are not enough words to express my gratitude to him for that.
James Newman with the orange team:
Looking forward to the final competition between myself, James H., and Kris. Best of luck to the three of us. It will be a really good chance to show how far all of us have come since the start.
Kris Cusanza with the red team writes:
I’m starting to feel a little bit like the main character in “Rocky.” I am running boxing and dieting my way to the top. I can’t wait to go up against the James’s because we are all such strong people and there will be no losers after the mega fitness event. Here’s the best advice my trainer Carlos gave me. Sleep. Eat lots of good lean protein and make sure the day of the race to eat some carbs. Make sure you don’t over eat. Some people will end up making them selves sick after trying to carb load for a race.
