First there was The View, then The Chew and now ABC’s starting The Revolution, the network’s latest talk show which is actually not all talk but more so action. We got the skinny from one of the show’s hosts, celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, when he showed up at the video shoot of his Express Workout routine coming in the March issue of FITNESS.
“Small changes can make a big change in your life,” says Pasternak, who trains big-name beauties like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. That’s the message of The Revolution which premieres this Monday, January 16 at 2 p.m. and each week features another woman’s five-month journey as Pasternak and a dream team of pros give her life a 360-degree upgrade. Think Extreme Makeover’s Ty Pennington remodeling your kitchen and Project Runway tastemaker Tim Gunn acting as your personal stylist. (They’ll be joined by top health, wellness and money experts to leave no rut unturned.)
“We make over her home, her fashion and her body. And unlike other shows, we do it while they’re still living their day-to-day lives,” says Pasternak, who packed his gym bag to travel around the country making house calls. Each day’s episode represents one month of one lucky gal’s transformation with Friday being the big reveal.
All along the way, viewers at home get DIY how-tos for achieving their own aha moments. “The goal is to inspire others with the lessons we share,” Pasternak says.
