CMC Alum to be Regular Trainer on New Food Network Show Fat Chef

CMC alum Brett Hoebel ’93 will be featured as a regular trainer and health guru on a new Food Network series called Fat Chef, premiering January 26. Hoebel will join a crew of other fitness experts and nutritionists as they work one-on-one with professional chefs who have an unhealthy relationship with the one thing that has brought them a successful career — food.

The program will run for six episodes and follow 12 chefs over the course of four months as they work through gut-busting workouts and nutritional sessions in order to slim down and regain control of their lives.

Hoebel, a former trainer on the TV show The Biggest Loser, will have quite a challenge helping 300+ pound chefs lose 25 percent of their body weight during the 16-week period. However, as an award-winning group fitness instructor and a nationally recognized personal trainer who has been featured on The Today Show and Good Morning America, Hoebel definitely has the experience to help the chefs achieve their slimming goal. Hoebel’s passion for fitness, holistic health and healthy lifestyles comes from his days as an overweight youth. In his sophomore year in high school Hoebel reached a healthy weight through his involvement in sports and has been dedicated to helping others do the same ever since.

Tune in to the Food Network Thursday, January 26 at 10 p.m. PST for the season premiere and watch Hoebel help these professional chefs fight back against food.
